Ohio’s tallest and fastest toboggan chutes are open for the season at the Chalet in Cleveland Metroparks’ Mill Stream Run Reservation in Strongsville.

The twin toboggan chutes plunge down a 70-foot vertical drop and travel along 700 feet of ice while reaching speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. The refrigerated ice chutes can operate with or without snow, in temperatures below 50 degrees.

The chutes are fun for all ages as the toboggans are transported effortlessly by the Chalet’s lift system. Gloves are required to ride the chutes and all riders must be 42 inches or taller. In between toboggan runs, guests can warm up by one of the fireplaces at the Chalet while enjoying a hot chocolate from the snack bar. The Chalet also features a loft with a view of the chutes.

Tobogganing is available through early March during the following hours:

  • Fridays: 6-10:30 p.m.
  • Saturdays: noon-10:30 p.m.
  • Sundays: noon-5 p.m.

Special events and discounts are available all season long, including School and College ID Nights powered by MTD. Season passes also are available for individuals and families.

The Toboggan Chutes are located in Cleveland Metroparks Chalet Recreation Area, 16200 Valley Parkway, in Mill Stream Run Reservation, between routes 42 and 82 in Strongsville. In case of warm or inclement weather, guests can call the Chalet at 440-572-9990 option #6 for operations updates.
