Slingshot into Summer: BV Adventure Hub Offers New On-Road Experience

BV Adventure Hub prides itself on being Buena Vista’s one-stop-shop for all things outdoor adventure including side-by-side ATV tours and rentals, whitewater rafting, stand up paddle boarding, horseback riding, zip line tours and more.

New this year, BV Adventure Hub is adding a new type of adventure to its line-up – Polaris Slingshot on-road rides. Yes, you can finally zoom down the highway in a vehicle resembling something Batman would drive or your favorite racecar in Nintendo’s Mario Kart!

If you’re not yet familiar with it, Polaris Slingshot is a three-wheeled motorcycle with a lightweight design and capacity to reach upwards of 173 HP. With a SL 5 speed manual transmission, the 3 wheeled on-road vehicle is ideal handling the twists and turns of Colorado mountain driving.

The Slingshot accommodates up to 2 people and is equipped with electronic stability, ABS brakes, power steering and premium Rockford audio so you can listen to your favorite tunes. The Polaris vehicle has a fairly large glovebox that is weatherproof and locks to safely and securely store your personal belongings. There are also weatherproof and lockable compartments behind the seats for more storage.

Buena Vista is one of Colorado’s iconic towns with picturesque views of Sawatch Mountain Range, San Isabel National Forest and the Arkansas River. Embrace your inner road warrior and smoothly drive through canyons and over mountain passes, then break for lunch or shopping in other Colorado destinations – all from your full-day Polaris Slingshot rental from BV Adventure Hub.
