Snow Mountain at Stone Mountain Park PTR


Recommended Posts

Hey folks. Just returned home to Orlando from a week long trip to Atlanta. My parents live there and I was born and raised there as well. We decided to take a trip over to Stone Mountain Park which turns its Laser Show lawn into a snow tubing hill during the winter months.

 

Being that I lived five minutes from "The Rock" as we called it back in high school, I worked on just about all the "Attractions" Stone Mountain has back in the day. Yup, I piloted the Paddlewheel Riverboat and the Skyride (cable car to the top of the mountain) as well as ran the old putt putt area. It was only fitting to go visit the place where we would go because we were bored in ATL.

 

I know this TR has no coasters or other type of park stuff that you normally see, but I figured I'd share it with everyone out there in TRP land in case they've been thinking about going. It was a lot of fun considering it's all fake snow. The staff was top notch, I honestly thought I was back home at Disney in terms of Customer Service.

 

The prices are $25 to tube for two hours and as much snow play as you want. If you have a Stone Mtn annual pass, it's only $15. The downpart, Stone Mountain doesn't sell beer like Universal...

You get on moving carpets similar to what some ski resorts have and it takes you to almost the top with your tube in tow

Was the hill fast at all or kind of tame?

 

Looks like a nice setup overall, but the hill looked a bit slow.

 

It had some good speed to it. The initial drop off had a good angle and it sloped down a good bit before the level off and then you dropped again. We were at the second session of the day and it rained about two inches the day before, so they had just blasted the hill with some snow/ice. It did slow down later in the day when the sun was out, but still, comparable to other tubing hills in NC and WV.
