Tobogganing at Mill Stream: Cedar Point got nothing on this

Posted By on Mon, Jan 28, 2008 at 2:29 PM

If you’re out of Paxil and looking for a way to kill the frigid January blues, try the tobogganing chutes at the Mill Stream Run Reservation in Strongsville. This Cool Runnings–style ride has been around for 40 years, and it’s still ridiculously wholesome fun for the whole family. For just $8, you can rent a toboggan (otherwise known as a big wooden sled), lug it up several flights of stairs (it helps to bring a tall friend) and ride down as many times as you like. The chutes are basically two massive, frozen water slides. But it’s way more fun than regular sledding, especially because you get to close your eyes and scream like an 8-year-old… Afterwards, you can head back to the chalet and warm your feet by the fire, drink hot chocolate, and watch little kids play Yahtzee. The only drawback is that on a busy Saturday afternoon, the line was nearly an hour long. But there’s plenty of cheesy ’80s music piped through the outdoor speakers to keep you entertained, and the line gets shorter after the sun sets. (The rides are open until 10:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays). For directions and more info-- Lisa Rab
