Our family of 3 went to Tube World on a very busy Sunday morning. The staff was very efficient and keep things moving to ensure you get quite a few rides in during your 1 hour 45 minute window. One negative I experienced (which others did not seem to mind) is that your tube continues to go really, really fast... More

We enjoyed our day at Tube World. The staff was friendly and we loved tubing down the hill. I felt like it was a good value for to experience.

I went on a Friday before President's weekend with my 9 year old. We started to buy the tickets online but didn't because we weren't 100% sure we would be there at that time and other reviews say that refunds are NOT happening. There are some improvements they can make in getting the tickets - they closed the parking lot... More

They changed up the way you go down the mountain. You can only go down sitting in the tube In the past you could lay on your stomach which was better since you could use your feet to slow you down at the bottom of the hill. The change means the only way you are going to stop is by... More

If you're visiting Maggie in the winter months to world is a must do. Requires no skill just enjoyment of having an exciting ride down the mountain. They even have a little slope for toddlers and babies. All ages can participate and enjoy.

We came to Tube World with a group of 18 people which included children, teenagers and adults. The weather was not so great: it was slightly drizzling. We came when it was already dark and half an hour late into a two hour ride. Not wanting to wait until next ride opening with children, we went and paid $25 per... More

We went on a very warm day (the 60's). Surprised it was still open. Mudd and water everywhere. No lines at all probably due to that fact. It was fun, but I thought it was over priced for just sliding down a hill. I could have easily slid down a few times and left. Wear old waterproof shoes.

My family of four has visited Tube World on several occasions. We always have blast! Like others have said, it can be very crowded on the weekends and school holidays. On the other days you will definitely get your moneys worth! As far as speed of the tubes, I drug my feet behind my tube in order to slow down.... More

For those that are not ready to try the ski slopes in winter, Tony's Tube World is a great alternative. A tremendous amount of fun for young ones that are at least 42 inches tall.
