Tubing hill in Packers Titletown will open soon
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Packers Titletown will soon open Ariens Hill, the official name for the tubing hill in the park.
Ariens Hill will feature tubing in the colder months, and in the warmer months, the hill’s sloped green space will provide a unique area for visitors and community members to relax and enjoy park activities and programs.
“We’re excited to partner with Ariens Company for the hill in Titletown,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “Ariens is well-known in Wisconsin and around the world for its snow blowers and lawn mowers. People will benefit from use of Ariens Hill year round.”
An opening date for tubing on Ariens Hill will be determined in the coming weeks, and will take place as soon as weather conditions are favorable for making snow.
Tube riders will descend from the top of Ariens Hill – at a height of 46 feet – down one of three tubing lanes, stretching 300 feet from start to finish. While tubes are being returned to the top of Ariens Hill via an automated system, tube riders can climb the stairs to the summit to begin another thrilling ride.
Three snow-making machines and grooming equipment will ensure optimal tubing conditions.
Riders must purchase a tubing ticket to use Ariens Hill when it is snow-covered and open for tubing. Full tubing rules, hours and admission prices can be found here: titletown.com/events/recreation/tubing.
The ice skating rink, 46 Below and Rockwood Terrace at Titletown will open Thursday, November 30, in conjunction with the beginning of the Titletown Winter Jubilee. The holiday-themed Winter Jubilee Light Show, visits from Santa and ice sculptures will be part of the grand opening celebration beginning at 3 p.m. on Thursday, and Winter Jubilee events will continue throughout the month of December.
Titletown also has a new website with a calendar of events listing each activity and program offered at the park throughout the year.
