A premier venue for snowy recreation, Adrenaline Adventures keeps wintertime enthusiasts of all ages engaged in high-octane outdoor activities atop their newly revamped hill. Thrill-seekers can roll with gravity’s unrelenting punches by strapping into the transparent xorb’s inner ball for a topsy-turvy spin down the hill. The pellucid sphere comes equipped with two entrances to accommodate a pair of orbiting passengers, and rides last approximately one minute or eight hamster years. Alternatively, weeknight tubing grants guests unlimited eventide glides down the hill atop inflatable donuts. Those opting for a family snow-tubing pass can assemble four to six kinfolk for 48 flake-skimming journeys. A tow-lift ferries tubers up the elevated topography, allowing sliders to preserve precious energy for eating their way through the rubber donuts when they are finished.
In defiance of nature and local meteorologists, a heavy-duty snow machine ensures that slopes remain cloaked in powder regardless of temperature. Teeth chattering from chilly air can retire to the balmy clubhouse to warm up or avoid small talk with snowmen acquaintances; esurient tummies can mosey into The Water’s Edge Restaurant for gustatory refueling (not included in today’s deal).
The entire year is filled with screams at Adrenaline Adventures, where gravity and nerves of steel combine to produce a bounty of thrilling activities. In the summer, a cable-wakeboarding system zips riders along as they’re pulled by an overhead cable system while standing atop wakeboards. Groups can bond as they challenge the ropes course and zipline together, or take to beach-volleyball courts for a few rounds of bumps, sets, and spikes. During the winter, a snow machine fills the slopes of hills dedicated to snow tubing and snowboarding, rather than requiring riders to wait for adequate snowfall or use up their genie wishes for snow.
The staff of Adrenaline Adventures may love extreme activities, but they’re equally dedicated to safety. Sesitec—a German company that specializes in creating cable-wakeboarding systems—designed and installed the system, and Canadian officials certified each of the towers. In addition to yearly inspections from the Office of the Fire Commissioner for Manitoba, the staff works to maintain the system with daily maintenance, weekly tests, and their own annual checkups. The ropes course and zipline equipment are similarly cared for, and the staff regularly grooms the snowboarding and snow-tubing slopes to keep them free of sharp edges and unsafe bumps.
