  • Please reserve your birthday party at least a week in advance by calling 605.367.7317. If for some reason we are closed on the day of your reservation, we will make every attempt to contact you.
  • To get the group rates, we ask that one person pay for the entire group at the beginning of your visit and distribute the tickets. Please have the number of lift tickets, rentals, helmets, tubing tickets & lessons needed tallied in advance. 
  • We are unable to reserve tables for your party. Seating is on a first come, first serve basis. Weekends and Holidays are typically busy. If you choose that time, we suggest you pick a morning or evening session to maximize your tube time.
