Tubing is such a fun (and easy!) way to enjoy the snow. Before you head out, check for height requirements and recommendations. Here are some tubing hills near Milwaukee:
Sunburst Ski Hill
8355 Prospect Dr., Kewaskum, WI 53040
Just 30 minutes northwest of Milwaukee, Sunburst offers skiing, snowboarding, and tubing in three terrain parks. Their claim to fame is that it is the world’s largest tubing park with over 45 lanes. It was even recognized by USA Today as one of the top 10 tubing parks in the entire country!
A quarter-mile run with a 90-foot drop, this hill allows you to reach speeds of up to 30 mph! There are TWO magic carpet lifts to pull you back to the top over and over again. Tickets are $20 per person, and that will buy you 2 hours of riding on the weekend, or unlimited riding from 4-8 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Must be 42 inches tall to ride. There is no co-riding, and linking tubes together is not allowed. Click here to purchase tickets and sign your waiver online.
After a long day on the slopes, you’ll appreciate their fresh food café serving up artisan sandwiches and salads, plus Starbuck’s coffee and espresso drinks to help you warm up.
The Rock Snowpark
7011 S. Ballpark Dr., Franklin, WI 53132
Located just outside of the city of Milwaukee, The Rock Snowpark offers skiing and snowboarding hills in addition to 19 tubing chutes. There’s a minimum height requirement of 36 inches, and everyone must ride in their own tube. Linking tubes together is allowed when hill conditions are not too fast. Everyone will enjoy riding the Magic Carpet conveyor lift back to the top!
Your ticket gets you 2 hours of tubing on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays or holidays. Plan your visit for Monday-Thursday to enjoy a cheaper rate and unlimited tubing from 4-8 p.m. On select Friday and Saturday nights, there’s Glow Tubing from 9:15-11 p.m. No matter when you go, you can save money by purchasing your tickets online.
11931 Fox River Rd., Wilmot, WI 53192
Grab a tube, have a seat, and let gravity be your friend! Wilmot Mountain has been a snow sport destination for Wisconsinites since 1938. Today you can ski, snowboard or tube over 120 acres, 23 ski trails, and 22 tube lanes that are more than 1,000 feet long.
The Snow Tubing Area is located half a mile south of the main ski and snowboard entrance, at the intersection of County Hwy CK and Hwy W. There are two surface conveyor lifts, and you must be 42 inches tall to tube (no lap sitting allowed). Hats and goggles/sunglasses are recommended. A maximum of four tubes may link up to ride down the hill together, depending on lane conditions. Tickets buy you two hours of tubing time, and they are cheaper if you purchase them online.
After a few runs down the hill, warm up in the tubing lodge with a snack and a beverage while you watch from the deck overlooking the whole area. Much of the property has been recently redesigned and modernized, including their base lodge which offers wi-fi, “Walt’s Tavern” restaurant (where parents can watch their children ski and snowboard), and a state-of-the-art children’s ski and snowboard center featuring a playful open space for kids.
