The Plunge is Virginia's largest tubing park. Imagine being on top of a ten story building and looking out over a hill that's longer than three football fields. Now imagine going downhill on a tube at speeds reaching 30 mph. That's The Plunge! Thrills and chills without the spills.
Voted 1st Place by Blue Ridge Outdoor Magazine! Wintergreen's Terrain Park offers a chance to hone freestyle skills with a progression of features that are designed to accommodate a variety of skill levels. We frequently change the layout of the 40+ features so that you have something new each time you come to ski or ride. To help with the weekend crowd we even run a dedicated lift so terrain park users can get as many runs as possible!
Visit your neighborhood pond and slide, glide and spin your way through winter!

Families with small children can discover all the winter excitement they need at Ridgely's Fun Park.

You'll find a mini-tubing carousel, bear paw snow shoes, tunnels, plus a gentle hill for tubing - and the ride back up the hill might be more fun than the ride down!
