Adventure Play & Tubing Park 

An Action-Packed Activity at the Heart of the Cairngorm National Park

The Adventure Play & Tubing Park is a must do activity if you are visiting Cairngorm Mountain and the Aviemore area this summer. Located just outside the Day Lodge at base of the ski area our Adventure Play & Tubing Park offers visitors an exhilarating, high-speed experience with incredible views over Loch Morlich and the Spey Valley.

Fun for all the family.

Here at Cairngorm Mountain, we have slides suitable for all ages making a trip to the Adventure Play & Tubing Park a fun-filled day out for all the family. Regardless of ability our enthusiastic team will be on hand to offer encouragement and answer any questions so you can enjoy your experience in the safest way possible.

The Spindrift

At over 70 metres long with two parabolic turns the Spindrift is our most popular slide. Fly round the corners at high-speed or if you’re looking for an extra bit of excitement take a spin off the start.

The Spindrift uses only our medium tubes which are suitable for those over the age of 4 and above 1 metre tall. Please make sure you remain seated at all times when inside the tube and hold onto the handles. If you would like a spinning start just ask one of our friendly slide attendants.


The Cliffhanger

Step up to the edge of the Cliff-hanger and experience a thrilling adrenaline rush on the way down. Either drop-off on your own in a medium or double-up with one of our new maxi tubes, the Cliff-hanger is built for all to enjoy!

If you are doubling up make sure you remain seated, side by side and hold onto the handles. Do not sit upright, lie down or on top of each other. For full details on age and height restrictions for the slides please see our terms and conditions.


The Snowflake

Our focus for the Adventure Tubing & Play Park was to include all ages and abilities. With a gentle slope designed specifically for our mini tubes, the Snowflake is the perfect introduction to tubing for wee ones and those who aren’t quite confident to take on the bigger slides. It is suitable for children aged 2 and over.

Please note all children using the slide must be supervised at all times by their responsible adult, make sure the bottom of the slide is clear before your child sets off. The ‘Snowflake’ slide is not manned by a slide attendant, it is the duty of the participants responsible adult to ensure they adhere to the regulations of the slide and the tubes. 

Adventure Play

The fun doesn’t stop with Tubing, climb aboard the Adventure Play Winch Cat and Zip Line! If you are not participating in a tubing session then please access the park via the signposted route over the bridge from the Day Lodge. Please try to avoid obstructing those who are using the tubing slides. If you are planning to stay and play after your tubing session please return your tube before doing so.
