We went on a very warm day in February and the snow was slushy. This was fine because it was the 1st time that my 8 and 6 year old were at AvalancheXpress and the slopes were still fast! If it wouldn't have been so warm and slushy, I would have had them wear helmets. We ALL had a really... More

We took a bunch of tweenagers to go tubing here since we were visiting in York with little else to do. The boys had a really fun time, and the parents managed not to freeze to death. (It was about 10 degrees and really windy). We discovered the $4 unlimited hot chocolate bar a little too late to fully benefit... More

Family fun time snow tubing! There is a tow line that will take you up the hill if you don't want to walk it. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is also ice skating with skate rental. I highly recommend and overnight stay at The Heritage Hotel. They have an amazing package for families.

For a York, PA winter attraction, AvalancheExpress definitely stands out. It feels like a money pit if you're going with just a couple people, but get a group of 4 or more and it's a great time, particularly when linking together tubes. Stay away on really cold weekends since lines get long and there's no wind protection.

Tubing down the slopes gave the roller coaster feeling and you can eith walk back up or be towed. I chose to walk...just once.

We live in the area so we purchased a season pass. Great value including tubing, skating and mini golf. Lucky to have a winter that we were able to tube and skate frequently. Hours of entertainment for my son and his friends while the adults enjoyed time in Knickers.

I tried to get everyone I knew to go to do this but in my age most were pretty scared so I went anyways by myself & had to go tubing down the hill in every way I could think of... belly style, lounging, etc.... had a blast!!! Didn't realize I kept going for as long as I did!

There is another slide north of York Ski Round Top, which is longer but not at fast. This is a great slide for all ages. It gets very, very crowded however and sometimes all the lanes are not open. For the best time, try to go at off hours like first thing in the morning or at night for the... More

Heritage Hills was a 2 hour drive from us. We arrived early, got our tickets, and immediately started tubing. It was fun! While it was busy, the wait to get a tube was no longer than a few minutes. Ice skating was fun too! We got some hot chocolate and kept going. The hotel staff was great. My only issue... More
