Close to Chicagoland Suburbs, fun tubing runs
Crowded, Crowded, Crowded
The tubing runs at Wilmont are a good time, they're long and fast. The downside is you don't want to go on weekends. It's unbelievably packed. We arrived 15min before 3pm and we couldn't get on the hill until 4pm. Once on the hill it took another 15mins to get a tube because they were all being used. Not long after they closed off half the runs for a good 20 minutes for them to be grooomed, then they shut down the other half for 20 min. The other problem is they only have one conveyor to take you up the hill, the line literally has a couple of hundred people waiting. They need a second conveyer. We managed to get in 6 runs over a two hour period. Recommend going during the week.
