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 (Non-Peak Hours): $11.00 for the first hour & $6.00 each additional hour.
Friday - Sunday (Peak Hours): $13.00 for the first hour & $8.00 each additional hour.
*$5 of the first hour is a tube usage fee. However, this does not guarantee sole use of the tube.
What are the rules for tubing? | What is the tubing run made of? | How wet will I get while tubing? | How fast does it go and how long is it? | What are the age/height restrictions? | Is there a price difference between the beginner and advanced runs? | Is there a lift to bring the tube back to the top of the run? | What should I wear to tube? | Can we bring our own tubes so we don’t have to pay the rental fee? | Can a parent ride with a child in the same tube?
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!
A: Our tubing runs are constructed using a material called Neveplast. We use a misting system most days to keep our tubing runs fast and fun. Due to changing weather conditions there may be days when the misting system is not in use to keep the runs at a safe speed.
A: If the misting system is in use on the particular day of your visit you may experience some water while tubing; however, we only use a small amount to help with the speed of the tubing runs and it is not enough significantly affect your experience.
A: Our tracks reach speeds of about 25-30mph depending on the weather and conditions and are about 300 - 500ft long.
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 run.
A: Yes, the beginner tubing run is $5 per hour.
A: Yes, both the beginner tubing run and the advanced tubing runs have conveyor lifts to assist you back up the hill. .
A: There are no designated clothing requirements other than wearing any type of shoes (flip-flops/sandals are ok; closed-toed shoes are recommended). Dress appropriately for the weather.
A: No. Our tubes have a special bottom that allows them to slide over the surface without damaging the Neveplast or the tubes. We also include the tube in the cost of tubing for the first hour.
A: No. There is only one person per tube allowed on the two advanced tubing runs. We do allow 2 tubes to be linked together depending on the slope conditions (This can change anytime and is determined by the manager on duty). We do allow on the smaller beginner hill, a parent to hold a child in one tube. The parent can purchase a combo beginner tubing package. The parent will be issued a pass specificly for the beginner hill. We don't allow tubes to be linked on the smaller run.
