Two summer tubing lanes send visitors flying downhill on inner tubes before an automated conveyor belt returns them to the top in 90-seconds. After three hours of heart-racing tubing, a globe ride sends guests careening down the hill in a self-contained plastic sphere. The ride can be attempted dry, with riders strapped into a harness, or wet, with up to three riders sloshing around in up to 10 gallons of water for what Amesbury Sports Park describes as a self-contained, human washing machine.<p>
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.
