The Plunge Tubing

The Plunge is Virginia’s largest tubing park. Imagine being on top of a ten story building and looking out over a hill that’s longer than three football fields. Now imagine going downhill on a tube at speeds reaching 30 mph. That’s The Plunge! Thrills and chills without the spills. To make it even easier, the conveyor lift will bring you and your tube comfortably and quickly back up the hill so you can do it again and again. Some people call it the “scream machine” and we think you’ll agree! It’s just plain tubular fun. Because after all, anyone can slide!
