With the weather getting colder, Titletown will soon open Ariens Hill, the official name for the hill in the park at Titletown.
Ariens Hill will feature tubing in the colder months, and in the warmer months, the hill's sloped green space will provide a unique area for visitors and community members to relax and enjoy park activities and programs.
"We're excited to partner with Ariens Company for the hill in Titletown," said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. "Ariens is well-known in Wisconsin and around the world for its snow blowers and lawn mowers. People will benefit from use of Ariens Hill year round."
An opening date for tubing on Ariens Hill will be determined in the coming weeks, and will take place as soon as weather conditions are favorable for making snow.
"Ariens Company is honored to partner with the Green Bay Packers on this one-of-a-kind venue at Titletown," says Ariens. "We look forward to Ariens Hill becoming a destination for families and the community to come together, enjoy the outdoors and have some fun."
Tube riders will descend from the top of Ariens Hill – at a height of 46 feet – down one of three tubing lanes, stretching 300 feet from start to finish. While tubes are being returned to the top of Ariens Hill via an automated system, tube riders can climb the stairs to the summit to begin another thrilling ride.
Three snow-making machines and grooming equipment will ensure optimal tubing conditions.
Riders must purchase a tubing ticket to use Ariens Hill when it is snow-covered and open for tubing. Full tubing rules, hours and admission prices are available at titletown.com/events/recreation/tubing.
The ice skating rink, 46 Below and Rockwood Terrace at Titletown will also open Thursday, Nov. 30, in conjunction with the beginning of the Titletown Winter Jubilee. The holiday-themed Winter Jubilee Light Show, visits from Santa and ice sculptures will be part of the grand opening celebration beginning at 3 p.m. on Thursday, and Winter Jubilee events will continue throughout the month of December.
Ice skating rink hours, admission and skate rental information can be found at titletown.com/events/recreation/skating.
