Adventure Center | Sledding & Snow play

Update 3/29/2021: The Adventure Center is now closed for the 2020/21 winter season. We look forward to seeing you next year!

Enjoy the winter season with the whole family by visiting our Snow Play and Sledding hill. Race down the snow-covered hill with one of the oldest family winter traditions. With our carpet lift to get you back to the top, you can slide more and walk less.
