Winter Fun at the Colorado Adventure Park
If you want to go tubing, stop by Colorado Adventure Park. The adventure park is one of the largest and safest tubing hills in Winter Park. Tubing is one of the most popular activities at the park. You can rent a single tube and ride it up the Magic Carpet Lift to the top of the run. Tubing is open to everyone ages 3 years old or older looking for things to do near Winter Park and there are several runs with different levels of intensity from easy to fast and wild.
If you want to ride with your children, you can rent a double tube. These tubes are great for kids who are a little hesitant and comfortably fit two people. If you are looking for something a little wilder, consider renting a snow scoot. Snow Scoots are mini snowmobiles for children under 5 ft tall and 90 pounds. You can ride them along the groomed track in the meadow at Colorado Adventure Park and take them out for a friendly race.
The Colorado Adventure Park is located just outside of downtown Fraser. It is open during the ski season from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. In addition to the tube rentals, Colorado Adventure Park also has a warming hut and a concession stand with s’mores, beer, and wine.
