At Amesbury Sports Park, windswept passengers sail tubes down powdery pathways of packed snow dotting hillsides of varying steepness. The inclines boast double the number of lanes as last year, shortening wait times and decreasing the likelihood of traffic jams caused by flocks of roaming yodelers. Convenient conveyer belt lift tubes and tubees back to the top of the hill for repeat rides, and come night, twinkling lights erupt from the snowscape to guide frost-riders safely from top to bottom.
While not included in the price of this Groupon, the Corner Kick Pub comforts guests with a full menu of noshables and off-duty chefs offering complimentary bear hugs. The spacious pub overlooks all of the icy action through huge windows so guests can reminisce on their recent gravity-fueled excursion while warming up with some hot chocolate.
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.
