Summer Luge Opens for the Season
May 24 - May 25
Saturday, May 25, the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex will open their Summer Wheeled Luge! Don’t wait for snow, luge in the summer! Slide down the only wheeled luge track in North America! Wheel luge is done on a specially designed track with the same sleds used on the ice, but with wheels attached. The design of the track, adaptive equipment and surrounding common areas also accommodate persons with disabilities. Shorter than the ice track, average runs take approximately 9 seconds while covering 300 feet of track.
Tickets for summer luge are not sold in advance. Guests are served on a first come, first served basis, but wait times are rarely more than 15 minutes. The cost is $10 for 4 runs or $15 for archery add-on. All equipment and instruction are provided with the purchase of a pass. Sneakers, long sleeve shirts and long pants are highly recommended to protect your skin from fiberglass “burns” in case you brush up against the side of the luge track. Participants must be at least 5 years of age. For more information, call 1-877-TRY-LUGE or visit the website below.
