Enjoy Northeast Ohio's ultimate winter thrill ride at the Chalet
Toboggan Chutes and the best deals of the winter season!
This winter, the only public ice chutes in Ohio are a
perfect place for parties, gatherings and get-togethers with

great special opportunities for visitors to enjoy the winter thrill
ride and save money:
The general admission for tobogganing is ONLY $10 for adults and
$8 for children, 11 & under, for unlimited rides for the
