A thrilling ride down a 30' converted ski jump, the Lake Placid Toboggan Chute is not the typical winter wonderland adventure. Ice covered chutes propel toboggans onto a frozen Mirror Lake. If weather conditions are right, the toboggans can slide over 1,000 feet. The whole family can cozy-up in a four person toboggan and enjoy the frosty ride ahead. If the kids can't stop yelling, "Again! Again!" parents need not fear. Kids can slip and slide to their hearts content for the price of one admission. If families want to pick up the pace of a slow-moving winter vacation, the Lake Placid Toboggan Chute will certainly send them flying.

Tips for Families
Although there are no age restrictions, the ride may be frightening for young, nervous children. Make sure to wear warm clothes, but no skiwear, as the friction in the ride tends to wear certain types of skiwear. Place young children between parents, and remember that the parent in front may get a little snowy!
