This is a past event.
Snow or no, the twin toboggan chutes are open at the Chalet in Stongsville's Mill Creek Reservation. Park officials claim the backless, sideless snow rockets reach speeds of 45 miles per hour as they hurtle some 1,000 feet down the refrigerated chutes. But if you ask us, it feels more like 100 mph! In any case, hang on to your hat, your glasses, and small children: It's one heckuva ride! All-day passes, good for unlimited thrills, are $8 for adults and $6 for kids; cowards can score a single trip for a mere three bucks. The chutes operate weekends through March 6, with an expanded daily schedule through January 2. Today's hours are noon to 4 p.m.; check out the entire schedule at clemetparks.com/recreation/tobogganing. The Chalet is on Valley Parkway between Routes 42 and 82 in Strongsville.
