A toboggan chute has been on my bucket list for a few years and I was really excited to finally cross it off.
The Chalet at Cleveland Metroparks Mill Stream Run Reservation is a destination for fun all year round but I was REALLY only interested in checking out the fastest, tallest chutes in Ohio.
During the winter season you can plummet down one of two frozen ice chutes that are 700 feet long.
The speeds are fast. You can go up to 50 mph!
I was joined by Laura from Far Flung Travels and her husband for this adventure.
The line posted signs of 3, 2, and 1 hours waits on the stairs on the way to the top. We were fortunate that our wait was 45 minutes vs. 3 hours.
The toboggan can fit up to 4 riders.
Once your party is seated and holding tightly, palms up to the rope, you are on your way.
The toboggan was WAY faster than I anticipated and the ride was a great adrenaline rush. The hill was steep and it was truley a thrill.
You can also check the radar for your speed on the way down.
Due to time constraints I only had time to go down once but it was worth the drive and I will definitely be back!
