In the Fall of 2013, we opened three new tubing runs that offer tubing options for everyone. On the nursery slope, our beginner Neveplast tubing run is 80ft long and offers speeds upward of 10mph. On the top slope, two Neveplast tubing runs - one at 350ft long and the other at 500ft long - both offer speeds of around 30mph. All of these tubing runs are a safe, fun, and inexpensive way to enjoy the scenic campus of Liberty University. Come up today and give all three of the new tubing runs a try!
Monday - Thursday: $10.00 for the first hour & $5.00 every additional hour.
Friday - Sunday: $12.00 for the first hour & $7.00 every additional hour.
*Price per person, plus applicable state and federal taxes.
($5 of the first hour is a tube usage fee. However, this does not guarantee sole use of the tube.)
Tubing 101 - What You Need to Know
The beginner slope is 80ft long.
The advanced slopes are 300ft & 500ft long.
Q: What are the rules for tubing?
A: We’ve compiled our rules into an acronym that spells “FASTER”
- F: feet up, legs up
- A: arms in
- S: stay seated until stopped
- T: thumbs up to go
- E: enjoy the ride
- R: remember to have fun!
Q: What is the tubing run made of?
A: Our tubing runs are constructed using a material called Neveplast. Neveplast is a plastic material that does not require a misting lubrication system for operation like our Snowflex surface. Instead, it is lubricated periodically with silicone.
Q: How fast does it go and how long is it?
A: Our tracks reach speeds of about 25-30mph depending on the weather and conditions and are about 300 - 500ft long.
Q: What are the age/height restrictions?
A: Participants must be either 5 years old or 36 inches tall to ride our advanced tubing runs. Those not meeting these criteria may still use the beginner Neveplast runs.
Q: Is there a price difference between the beginner and advanced runs?
Q: Is there a lift to bring the tube back to the top of the run?
A: On the advanced slope, yes. There is no lift for tubing on the beginner slope.
Q: What should I wear to tube?
A: There are no designated clothing requirements other than wearing any type of shoes (flip-flops/sandals are ok; closed-toed shoes are recommended). Although long sleeves and pants are recommended for tubing, they are only required for skiing or snowboarding.
Q: Can we bring our own tubes so we don’t have to pay the rental fee?
A: No. Our tubes have a special bottom that allows them to slide over the surface without damaging the Neveplast or the tubes.
