35E468Aa 965B 4068 A0Ad Febcb460Fa97

Woodward Park City Tubing Park / Gorgoza Park is the perfect place for the whole family to have fun in the snow! Woodward is one of the best options for snow tubing in the Park City area, a short drive from Salt Lake City.

Featuring seven lanes and 1200 feet of tubing lanes, including the most extended tubing lanes in Utah. Woodward offers terrain parks, half-pipes, and jumps for those who want to take their winter activities to the next level.

The park has a variety of runs, from beginner to expert, so everyone can find something that suits their skill level. With its inner tube tubing, terrain parks, and jumps, Woodward Park City is an excellent way for the entire family to have some winter fun.

We went snow tubing Christmas Day with our kids at Woodward in Park City, Utah, as part of our Christmas trip to Park City, Utah.

Booking & price

We snowtubed at Woodward Park City on Christmas Day 2020, booking the tickets a few days before. Ticket sales are bookable in 2-hour tubing sessions. You get a barcode to scan when you pick up the tickets.

The total for two adults and two children was around $220 for a 2-hour session, which we thought was too high.

The picture above has the short lanes on the left and the long ones on the right.

Snow tubing is an exciting winter activity that is perfect for all years of age. Younger kids will love the short lanes designed with a gentle slope, which are perfect for beginners. Older kids will enjoy the faster lanes, which provide a thrilling ride.

To get to the top of the hill, riders are transported up a magic carpet ride conveyor belt while dragging their tube behind them.

The tubes are pretty heavy, so if your kids are younger, they may have trouble leaning on the conveyor belt while holding onto the tube.

Our 6-year-old didn’t like pulling his tube to the top, and we stacked his on top of one of ours. We saw a few tubes falling off or getting stuck in the fence next to it. We also saw some smaller kids sitting in the tubes while their parents towed them up.

The belt drops you off halfway up at the top of the lanes on the left in this picture. If you want to continue to the more extended, faster lanes on the right, you get on a second belt with a long line.

The short lanes are fast enough, and our kids (6 & 10) had plenty of fun on them, but the more extended lanes were a lot faster, maybe too fast for younger kids.

Tips

  • Hold onto the ropes from the other tubes in your family for a fun family ride!
  • There didn’t seem to be too many restrictions on how to ride; people were running and jumping onto the tubes, and you could connect many tubes to go down as a family or get more speed.

Room for improvement

Lines

The lift line for the more extended lanes was so long that we only did it once. The shorter lanes had no wait time while we were there, even on a busy day. For 2 hours, we rode the shorter lane about ten times and the faster, extended lane once.

Employees

Something that could be improved is the customer service we observed during our visit. We encounter multiple rude employees shouting at people.

Track

It was a warmer day, around 40 degrees, affecting the track. At the start, we were going past the end of the track well into the run-off area, but we were barely making it up the last hill by the end.


conclusion

We had a great time tubing, an excellent activity for kids. Along with snowmobiling, it was one of the kid’s favorite parts of the trip. However, for the price, we probably wouldn’t return unless the lines for the faster lanes were improved.

For some of our other visits Park City favorite places include Utah Olympic Park (former site of the Winter Olympics), historic Main Street, Heber Valley, top winter things to do in Park City with kids besides skiing, and a Review of the Waldorf Astoria Park City.

Another great option is the Soldier Hollow Nordic Center.
