You can usually slide down together with friends or family members though by holding on to each other's tube. I personally would not recommend tubing as a "great activity" for pregnant women or for people with neck or back conditions. Overall though, if you are healthy and can handle a bit of light jarring to your body, tubing is a lot of fun for the whole family.
Most tube parks do have slower lanes though, practice lanes for beginners, or a means of making your ride a bit slower if visiting with young kids.

Also note that children under the age of 12 must be under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian at all times. That being said, I have sent my 8-year old son up the magic carpet on his own to slide down with his tube while I supervised below with a hot chocolate and have never gotten in trouble for it. Visit the Winsport website for tube park hours and all other information. They now have 12 sliding lanes up from 9 last winter. Second, Speed! Winsport has definitely taken care of everything to ensure you'll be able to spend your full two hours in the park without having to leave for anything.
They have also built a snack bar at the base of the sliding hill so that you can grab a warm hot chocolate, coffee, or quick snack without having to return to the main lodge. They've also included heated bathrooms with the snack bar.
Finally, new this year is the "family tubes," giant blue tubes that allow four people to ride down the hill together in the same tube. We didn't try one when we were recently there as it was just my son and I, but we hope to try it this winter when Dad can come along with us some weekend.

What I like best about this tube park - The Acura Tube Park is a great "intermediate" tube park after you've tried some of the more "mellow" ones such as Lake Louise or Nakiska. Head to Winsport when you're ready for some serious speed and a decent thrill! My son has gotten a bit "spoiled" after trying out a variety of tube parks multiple times every winter.
He still finds the Winsport park to be very exciting though and never gets tired of spending a half-day here. I can't say the same for some of the other beginner parks where he gets bored after a few runs. The Acura tube park is a great "stand alone" park where you could visit Winsport just for the tube park and not feel like you had to have come for the skiing as well.www.juraa.com/images/the/2001bc-a-gay-odyssey-american-edition.php

Finally, I love the new snack bar at the bottom of the park. It means that I can go grab a hot chocolate or coffee and "supervise" from the bottom of the hill once I've had my fill of sliding because let's be honest, the kids could slide for hours!! Sliding down the very fast lanes at the Acura Tube Park Other activities to enjoy in the area aside from the obvious downhill skiing - Winsport has a variety of winter activities including public bobsleigh, luge, skeleton, and ice skating.
We recently tried the luge and it was a lot of fun.
See one of my son's runs below. Brandon 20 December at Between the beginner ski area, the tube park, and a few runs down the easy bronze chair, our day was happily filled up and we had a blast!! Children under the age of 6 ride free with a parent. The Tube Park is open weekends and holidays from am to pm.
