Attractions in Frisco

Adventure Park
A Nordic center, the Frisco Adventure Park lets guests enjoy time sliding down a long hill. Multi-lane tracks let more than one go tubing or sledding down the hill together. While people take sleds down any hill, this place is made for perfect sledding and the atmosphere is electric. Those who qualify can ask for a military discount. The facility includes snacks and hot beverages.
