Best Winter Fun for Roller Coaster Lovers 

The Metroparks' Toboggan Chutes

What's a roller coaster addict to do once Cedar Point is closed for the season? Just hang on till Thanksgiving, when the toboggan runs at the Cleveland Metroparks' Mill Stream Run Reservation open for the season. The two refrigerated chutes rocket you down 1,000 feet of ice in less time than it takes to work up a proper fear of them. And although you aren't in any more danger than you would be riding a coaster, you'll surely get the sensation that you're off the rails and utterly out of control — a feeling no roller coaster can quite match. Best of all: An all-day pass sets you back just $8. The chutes are open until the first week of March, or as long as the temperature stays below 55 degrees.

Mill Stream Run Reservation, Valley Pkwy. between rts. 42 and 82, Strongsville, 440-572-9990,
