Adrenaline Adventures will open for winter activities today just in time for the holiday break.

The outdoor recreational facility — located south of Roblin Boulevard near the Perimeter Highway just north of Wilkes Avenue — offers snow tubing on its giant hill and a towrope to bring riders back up. The tubing lanes are freshly groomed and provide riders with a variety of speeds and bumps.

Those who want a little more adventure can try out a 10-foot wide inflated plastic ball called “Xorbing” while rolling down the hill. Snowboarding is also available, as well as ice skating on the park’s 10-acre wakeboarding lake by December 24.

The park will be open today and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. It will remain open December 23 to January 8 for the holiday break, and then seven days a week for the remainder of winter.

In related winter fun, Springhill Winter Sports Park also opens today.

“The lack of cold weather needed to make snow has delayed our opening this season. We have combated this by running more snow machines than in previous years,” said Joel Pajak, the park’s owner and general manager. “We’re really looking forward to getting this season underway and we have some new surprises in store for this season.”

The park is located just off Highway 59 and has been making snow for more than three weeks.
