The Cleveland Metroparks toboggan chutes open on Friday, November 26 in Strongsville, the day after Thanksgiving.

The pair of twin toboggan chutes sends riders down a 70-foot vertical drop along 700 feet of ice.

Riders reach speeds of up to 50 miles per hour, according to Metroparks officials. Each chute has a radar so riders can record their top speed.

Ohio’s tallest toboggan chutes are located at the Chalet in Mill Stream Run Reservation.
