lytus is a medium sized Lithuanian town far one hour and half by car from the capital Vilnius. Along the way to Alytus there are really fascinating landscapes, where thick forests alternate with smaller or larger lakes. This town is crossed by the river Neman, on whose banks 4 years ago was opened the first adventure park in the nation, founded and run by Mrs. Giedre and Mr. Mindaugas Aldonis.
Thinking of using an area with a good inclination that develops next to the entrance of Tarzanija, and ending on the flat before reaching the river bank, Neveplast was contacted to determine if it was possible to create snow tubing runs with different characteristics. The area, particularly suitable for this purpose, has allowed, after an accurate design and a positive dialogue between Neveplast and managers, to develop 4 Tubby slopes which were installed in May.
During the design phase the idea was to install four types of slopes, starting from the less steep side with lower speed slopes, to the more steep one with slopes consequently faster. The slopes are straight or with parabolic turns, to guarantee the right emotions at all.
Managers have also particularly appreciated the idea to realize a new concept, a straight Tubby slope provided with a tooth to launch the snow tubes in the air at 4/6 metres in height and then make them land in a big air mattress.
The slopes, supplied with Tubby Evolution model, were inaugurated on June 4th and, thanks to their features, have met with great success from the start.
