Welcome to Critterland!

The smallest of Copper’s kiddos like forts and hideouts where the big kids can’t find them, so Copper gave them what they wanted… Critterland: an interactive play place for kids and parents to enjoy the snow together.

 

There is no reason why your little ones should miss out on a bit of snowplay and that is where Critterland comes in – a place filled of magical characters and a safe, fenced-off area with things to satisfy the youngest generation. Inside Critterland, located at the bottom of the Tubing Hill in East Village, guests will find Copper’s new and exciting snow characters.  Bearilla, Elkguin, Squeal, Ducktopus, Cheetaphant and the Alliroo are all anxiously awaiting your arrival.

Critterland Features:

  • The Ducktopus Tubing Carousel – a ride the kids won’t want to get off.  Think of it as a trip around Ducktopus in a tube, where you can wave HI to mom on every revolution; where even the littlest of kids can get the sensation of sliding on the snow in a tube.
  • The Bearilla Snow Den – the play area has super fun tunnels to crawl through, ropes to climb up, a snow climbing fort (Fort Bearilla) and other assorted play features.
  • Squeal Hill – a mini-mini tubing hill, so the kids under 36” tall can have some fun tubing, just like their big sister, mom & dad.
  • The Critter Crooked House – a cool escape for the kids to hide from big brother.
