If you're going to spend a long, arduous winter living in Maine, you should at least try to find some fun and excitement during that time.

If skiing and boarding aren't your skill, if ice skating or ice fishing just isn't your cup of tea, then perhaps what you need is something that only takes a little courage and perfect inflation. We're talking snow tubing, of course.

Seacoast Adventure in Windham, Maine, has put together a dynamite tubing park for years now. Families come from surrounding towns all winter long to enjoy the tubing experience over the weekend.

But it's those that have an extra urge to be daring that take on the Seacoast Adventure tubing park after dark.

While the tubing hill is well lit, there's still a different sense of danger sliding down the hill at high speeds in your tube while being surrounded by darkness. But for those that show up weekend after weekend for night tubing, that thrill is exactly why they do it.

And now that winter is here, Seacoast Adventure is getting that snowmaking going and preparing for a late December opening. Their website even notes a targeted December 27 start date, but that could certainly change, so be sure to check back for any updates.

Yup, they make their own snow, so there's no concern there.

So get ready to strap the boots on and take a few deep breaths. Snow tubing after dark might be just the thing you need to get you through this winter.
