Adults and kids pile into rubber tubes that hold up to 8 sliders; larger groups can also create a train of up to 12 people by grabbing onto one another's tubes. After a motorized tube-tow tugs them uphill, they pick one of four lanes for a different combination of speed, turns, and drops. A friendly attendant launches them down a slick material that mimics the slippery properties of snow, giving tubes a quick spin or some extra oomph upon request. To fend off the heat, sprinklers gently mist sliders as they careen by.
A tow system pulls an inner tube and its passenger to the top of a slide, from which the inflated vessel speeds down the hillside, twists through trees, and plunges into adrenaline-pumping drops. These thrills and the occasional daredevil squirrel emerge from Tubby Tubes' nine winter tubing runs, where attendants push tubers down powdery slopes that double as express lanes for snowmen on their morning commutes.
As the weather warms, the park shifts its focus to its four downhill tubing slides. To add more excitement, the company's crew revamped the colorful slides with snow-like surfaces that create increased speeds. This spirit for adventure echoes at nearby Lower Hudson Gorge, where Tubby Tubes' rafts and tubes explore the flat waters and tree-lined banks.
