Where are we going today?
Big Thrills and Big Hills! That's the motto of New England Sports Park and they have it spot on! They have the fastest and steepest snow tubing hill in New England AND they have the space for about 1000 tubes ready for 1000 kids to all be having fun at the same time - huge! You can even ride with a friend if you like!
Don't worry about climbing up to the top all the time - they have two lifts or a conveyor belt to get you up there! You just need to focus on the way down!
If its summer, don't worry - you can snow tube without the snow!
Snow tubing not enough for you at New England Sports Park? Try Globe Riding! Here, if you are brave enough, you can roll down a very large hill inside an 11ft inflatable sphere! You can roll around with up to 3 people if you choose the water option, where its filled with 10 gallons of water where you can slosh down the hill. If you don’t fancy the water, you can harness yourself in and just tumble down! Are you really that brave!? We wouldn’t be!
During the warmer months, you can participate in really fun foot races such as Warrior Dash, Run For Your Lives (you have to escape zombies!) and the Spartan Race.
They are all about fun!

Private group lessons are available and the great thing is, they will be having so much fun they probably won't realise they're learning!.

I just had my sons birthday there. Never again. We booked a month in advance and it was to include 3 hours of tubing, pizza, chips, 2 pitchers of soda and a party table with service. First when we arrived they didn't have a table ready. Not a big deal just a little annoying. We waited for our guests to arrive and asked for helmets for the boys and after waiting 15 min. we were brought some with pink and yellow flowers and kittens. Of course no 8 year old boy will want to wear that so we we asked them to take them back and bring us some more suited...Read More

I brought my kids here to go tubing and had a blast! Even though there was no snow at my house, they had plenty on the hill. My 5 and 7 year olds LOVED it and we spent many hours there. They have a great restaurant / bar inside. The food and service were great. I was so impressed that I planned my company's holiday party here! I went to a wine dinner too and couldn't believe the quality of food and service - it was lightyears ahead of what I expected.

During the wine dinner they were talking about up and coming events and i was thrilled and extremely excited when i heard about the Summer Tubing Parties with the Zorb Rides ( thrill of a life time). I decided i needed to book an adult adventure party that summer! i knew my friends would love it! Meredith Robinson and Michelle Norton were AMAZING when it came to party plans! They Hooked myself and 20 Friends with an awesome party! They planned the food, which was steak tips, Burgers, and Hotdogs with so many sides! it was delicious! As wells as a Full Liquor bar (which included premium top self liquor pretty impressive). The Servers on that assisted us were Martha and Katelyn and they were just as amazing as the food. very personable and always on hand for anything we needed! i couldn't have asked for a better staff or food presentation then ASP provided. We were able to do unlimited tubing and all had one Zorb Ride each, with the option to purchase more a discounted price (and we took advantage of that! each ride got cheaper!). The outside Hill Staff were all Clean neat and well behaved as i expected. Tim Mack the Supervisor during our party was excellent. He was very helpful and outgoing. Outside was a very organized team, they knew exactly what to do to keep not only us, but the rest of the customers who were there very happy. i would recommend this venue to all my family and friends! toward the end of our party i had the pleasure of meeting Marycarol Fowler who is the Owner and vice president of the company. She took time to thank us for coming and gave some of us passes for the Brewfest! it was an amazing party and i cant wait to do it again next summer! Thank You Amesbury Sports Park Team for making it an unforgettable experience! Look forward to doing business with you in the Future!

First when we arrived they didn't have a table ready. Not a big deal just a little annoying. We waited for our guests to arrive and asked for helmets for the boys and after waiting 15 min. we were brought some with pink and yellow flowers and kittens. Of course no 8 year old boy will want to wear that so we we asked them to take them back and bring us some more suited to our group. When we were finally sorted out we went outside to go tubing, I waited with the boys in the line until they got to the pulley to get to the top of the hill. It took about 20 min. to get that far. The boys went up and and my husband and I stayed at the bottom of the hill to watch them come down. 30 min. later I was getting very concerned and walked back to the guy that put the kids onto the pulley and asked him to radio to the staff on the top of the hill and find out if there was a problem. He said it was taking about 20 min. to get your turn once at the top of the hill. I told him the boys were up there for 30 and I saw people behind them already down. Finally he said he would radio. Well, instead of just radioing up to the person on the hill he radioed the office and put out an announcement for the kids to meet me at the deck at the bottom of the hill. No help at all. 15 min later the kids finally got to go down the hill. 1 hour wait in the cold for 1 run down. When they got to us they were all complaining that they were being cut inline at the top of the hill and no one was helping them get their turn. They also said there was a woman up there swearing the whole time they were waiting. When I asked my son if he heard them call his name he said "yes, and we went to the man who said there was nothing he could do". So now we make it back to our reserved party table and there are people sitting at it. They leave but leave the trash behind which we have to remove. We sit down and out comes our soda and then pizza. No chips. When it is time to bring out the cake I am asked if I need candles and I said no just a lighter. She brings out the cake and places it on the dirty table. They did not clear our pizza plates, or take away any of the trash. Just stuck the cake in the middle of it with a lighter and a butcher knife for us to cut the cake with. In the meantime there are people sitting at the very close table next to us with their shoes off massaging the toes. Gross. When I brought all this up to the owner she was not too concerned and offered us a 15% discount. So, in all we ended up paying $250.00 for a shared public table,1 run down the hill and 2 pizzas. Total ripoff.
