ORDA Adds Extreme Tubing At Olympic Ski Jumps

ExtremeTubingIf you’re seeking excitement this summer, the Olympic Jumping Complex, in Lake Placid, has you covered with Extreme Tubing. Hop in and hold on as you rocket down the landing hills of the 90 meter, 48 meter and 20 meter ski jumps, approaching speeds of up to 50 miles-per-hour.

Extreme Tubing will be available Tuesday through Saturday from 3:30-6:30 p.m. Additional hours are also being offered Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from noon- 2 p.m.

Extreme Tubing is $46 and includes two runs on 90 meter landing hill and one run down the 48 meter hill. During event days, to include the Summer Jumping Series, the cost is $51. With the Olympic Sites Passport, Extreme Tubing is $28 after the 20 percent discount.

Summer tubing is also available on the 48 and 20 meter hills; pricing and restrictions can be found online. One person per tube, participants must be at least eight years-old to attempt the 48 meter hill and 13 years-old to slide down the 90 meter hill. They must also take at least one run down the 48 meter hill before attempting the larger hill.
