Ride the Longest Tubing Lanes in Utah

Soldier Hollow in Wasatch Mountain State Park near Midway offers the longest tubing lanes in Utah. The hill has lengthy 1,200-foot sliding lanes with lift service for towing people up the hill for tubing day or night under the lights, and a sound system keeps the airwaves full of enjoyable tunes.

Snow Tubing, Soldier Hollow, Utah, Family, Children's Activities A trip to the Soldier Hollow tubing hill is affordable family fun—where kids are kids, and adults get the chance to be kids again. People literally race to get back in line as quickly as possible for another plunge. It’s a great outdoor activity for everyone to participate.

Single rides are also available for $5 for 7 and older and $3 for ages 3-6. All rates include tube use and lift ride.
