Massanutten is a ski resort on the East Coast but they have more to offer than just skiing. They also have a great Snow Tubing Park. This was a great experience that my wife and I enjoyed last winter. It was super cheap as well. For only $9 on Tuesday's you could snow tube for 2 hours and let me tell you two hours is plenty of time. This is a great snow tubing park since there is not up hill climbing to be done. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride back up the hill. They have a pulley that you hook your tube to and it does all the hard work up the hill. Bewared though that this can be a dangerous snow tube course. We went early in the day and it was not too fast but towards the last part of our two hours it got to running super fast. We even went back later that evening for another two hours but decided against since in the 15 minutes of watching before the next two hour session began 3 people had left with broken arms or other injuries. The snow is man made during the beginning of the winter and as it melts the course gets super slick. It is alot of fun but I would suggest going early in the day to prevent bodily harm. For this reason I also would not take small kids as they have to be 42 inches to ride but this really isn't safe in my opinion.
