Bumper Cars on Ice

Try bumper cars on ice. There are several locations in New York where you can try it out. The cars are controlled by joysticks, and some are even lighted for nighttime fun.


Nighttime Tubing

If nighttime fun is your speed, what about tubing under the lights? There's even music. So basically, it's a tubing disco.

Snowshoe to a Cave

Prefer the outdoors? You can snowshoe to the largest cave entrance in the Northeast - made all the more magical by the snow. You don't even need your own snowshoes, you can rent them for $5.

2 Mile Ice Skating Trail

You can ice skate all day with a two-mile skating trail on a frozen lake in New York. Follow that with some hot cocoa, and that's a pretty good day.
