Chutes - a winter tubing experience for the whole family. Without driving to the mountains or the mess of fake snow.

Here's what to expect when you come tubing at the Chutes:

  • A snow-free tubing experience
  • One hour sessions designed for family fun for all ages
  • An incredible holiday atmosphere
  • Free coffee and hot chocolate
  • A warm lodge to relax after your session

Some frequently asked questions:

Do I have to purchase tickets ahead of time?

Yes. Because our sessions frequently sell out, we do require everyone to register ahead of time. If you show up without a ticket, there is a chance we will not have a spot for you. We limit our sessions to give the best experience possible, and not spend your whole time waiting in line.

Do you have any age or weight requirements?

No. Any age or weight is able to enjoy the Chutes. We ask that parents of small children to be cautious and plan on riding the Chutes with their child. Our recommended method is to have the parent behind the child in separate tubes, to make sure they make it safely to the bottom.

Can I just watch?

Sure! Tickets are not required for anyone wanting to observe. A ticket is required, however, for anyone who will go down the Chutes at any point.

Do you have special ticket prices for small children?

Unfortunately, no. In order to provide the best service to everyone, we reserve a specific amount of tubes for each person registered, regardless of age. This means that a small child has a space reserved for them, because we believe their best experience is in a tube of their own. Because everyone receives the same experience, all tickets are priced the same.

Can you go down the Chutes together (in a train or in a race)?

Yes! We encourage you to have fun with the Chutes and enjoy it as a group or a family. You will watch a safety video upon arrival noting what is not allowed on the Chutes.

Do you have any food there?

We have a few light snacks and candy in our lodge available for purchase, but no hot food will be served. Please plan accordingly.

Can we have a birthday or company party here?

Sure! You can fill out this form and we will be in touch about renting a space for a party. We encourage you to purchase these tickets well in advance.

Where are you located?

Right on the other side of Crowders Mountain. Our address is 130 Camp Rotary Rd, Gastonia NC 28052.

What exactly do I get with a ticket purchase?

Our tickets are $13 per person, and this includes 1 one-hour session at the Chutes. This also includes on-site amenities such as basketball, gaga ball, ping pong, carpetball, and access to our Lodge for hot cocoa and coffee.

Are tickets refundable?

No. All ticket purchases are final. If you purchase a ticket for an incorrect date, contact our office and we will do our best to transfer your ticket to another date.

What about weather?

We make inclement weather calls at noon on the day of the session. For light rain, sessions will still be held. For downpouring rain, lighting, or thunderstorms, sessions will be moved to another date. You will be sent an email to transfer your current ticket to another date. There are no additional fees or ticket purchases required for inclement weather transfers. If icy/snowy weather occurs, we will make a judgement call as to whether or not roads around our camp are safe for everyone to arrive. If roads are cleared, the session will continue as normal. If you have specific questions, call (704) 915-1096.
