After a year of planning and another year of excavation, Rushmore Tramway Adventures has opened their mSnow Summer Tubing Hill! RTA (Rushmore Tramway Adventures) teamed up with the engineers at mSnow to bring their dream to reality.
After the initial site visit and after reviewing topographic maps, mSnow determined the site just didn’t have any suitable locations for summer tubing. RTA owns and operates their own equipment and is no stranger to difficult construction projects involving blasting and excavation. They were convinced that summer tubing was going to be the next big attraction in the Mount Rushmore area. mSnow’s engineers went back to the drawing board and came up with a hill profile that would fit within their exciting adventure park!
Boasting 3 extreme lanes and one kids’ lane, this summer-only tubing hill has over 1400 linear feet of mSnow’s Tube Slide™ product. Tube Slide™ is an elevated summer tubing track that is supported by frames and screw jacks. These screw jacks allow for adjustment and fine-tuning of the track. At thrilling speeds of over 30 mph, without the ability to fine tune the track, tubers would feel every bump.
Rushmore Tramway Adventures is in full operation and routinely sells 750-1000 tubing passes per day!
