Isaac Newton formulated the laws of gravity only after a falling apple knocked him into a tube slide and sent him careening down Mount Blanc. Speculate on a new physical law thanks to today's Groupon: for $10, you get three hours of tubing plus $3 off any Outdoor Gravity Orb ride at Amesbury Sports Park (a $17 value).
Amesbury Sports Park sends tube-grapplers on an expeditious slide down its steep slopes, pushing obstinate bags of bones onto an exhilarating motion ride. Ride the conveyor belt up to the zenith of Amesbury's grassy hilltop, then use physics' Law of Tube Slides to reach speeds of up to 40 mph to breeze toward the bottom. Those who wish to ride down the mountainous decline inside a plastic sphere can also get $3 off a ride in the Outdoor Gravity Orb, a device used for bounding down an 800-foot hill in a giant plastic ball. OGO rodeo riders can take the spherical jaunt freestyle with five gallons of water inside, much like the famous extreme sportsman Harry Houdini.
With Amesbury's standing-lift service, visitors can avoid steep trudging up the hill and get straight to the tumbly-down action. So claim your inflated tubular device and fill out your federal income taxes while breathtakingly zooming down a slide. Consult the park’s hours and FAQ page for additional information.
Amesbury Sports Park
At Amesbury Sports Park, windswept passengers sail tubes down the snow-less summer lanes or, during winter, the powdery pathways of packed snow that dot hillsides of varying steepness. A conveyor belt swiftly returns them to the top of the hill in, where they can repeat the ride. During the summer, visitors can hop inside of one of Amesbury Sports Park's plastic spheres, to take what they call a zorb ride. Their outdoor event venue can accommodate up to 30,000 people, and has previously hosted events such as the Warrior Dash, the Spartan Race, and their annual Brewfest. An onsite restaurant refuels recreationers with tasty American fare, and also hosts regular wine dinners that often sell out in advance. The park also has a function hall available for private parties, and a full-service catering business with cuisine prepared by executive chef Kevin Jacques. New Hampshire beaches are located near the park so guests can soak up more sun and relaxation after their zorb ride or tubing.
