  • The snow tubing is so much fun! I have been with just children and I have gone on a weekend night with friends. It is not only reasonable it is something different to do with the kids. You even get pu...  more »

  • Yawgoo Valley is *the* place in southern Rhode Island to learn to ride a snowboard or learn to ski. There's so much challenge at Yawgoo. Driving up North for hours is a dubious proposition. The challe...  more »
  • Only ski park in RI so it does the trick . However small hill and high prices . overall enjoyable
  • TERRIBLE!!! You can't get in. Poorly managed and all you'll get is a sorry. Don't waste your time. Tubing is the worst! You would think with the amount of good days they have they would be more pleasant and accommodating to their patrons. Buy yourself a tube and find a good hill.
  • Don't underestimate yawgoo for its size. It can be just as fun as any old mountain up north as long as you're with the right people. I can stay from 8:30 in the morning to 9:00 at night and still want to ride more. Also, management is very reasonable and friendly there. Usually you can spot Clay, Steve-o, or Jack (some of the operations managers) greeting people or taking care of things around the slope. I took lessons here about 6 years ago, not knowing how to even ride down a small hill. Now I am very cabable on the various features that are put out and switched around every week or so. Most of my good friends I met at yawgoo over the years.
  • I took my nephew to Yawgoo after growing up on going to the water-slides and having a blast. Positives -Good in-ground pool -Not a bad price Negatives -A bit dated- hasn't changed since I went 15 years ago. -The lifeguards and slide supervisors didn't seem to care too much about anything. **Important**- The kids had a good time on the water-slides but one of the main reasons I am writing is because of my experience on the larger of the 2 slides. I laid down on the slide (per sign direction) and after taking a second to get going, I started flying down the slide. Long story short, I was going so fast that I got turned around and hit my head on the slide before entering the pool. Luckily I am okay, but after I got out of the pool neither life guard came over to check on me. In addition, I watched several adults come down the slide and look as though they were going to fly off the slide coming around the corner. If you weigh more than 150 pounds I would HIGHLY suggest sitting up while going down either slide to prevent possible injury. I am not one who usually writes reviews, especially ones that are negative but I feel obligated to warn people about how potentially dangerous these water-slides can be and the general lack of care by the guards.
  • Iam So pissed. we got there and realized we had to buy tickets online which is so stupid!
