Tubing and tacos, anyone?

For one day next month, Horseshoe Resort will welcome a “slide-thru” Taco Bell to its tubing hill.

Those enjoying snow tubing March 2 will be able to place their orders at the top of the hill and slide down to pick up their food at the bottom.

The resort has rented the space to Taco Bell for that day.

“It was exciting to us because we thought it would be very fun to do something that’s never been done before,” said Val Hamilton, Horseshoe Resort’s marketing director. “It’s going to be a fun day at Horseshoe.”

In a statement, Taco Bell said the pop-up slide-thru will mark the return of a popular menu item.

“We’re always looking for new ways to innovate and offer our fans unexpected experiences that celebrate the Taco Bell brand,” the statement read. “To welcome back the fan-favourite Cheetos Crunchwrap Slider, a Canadian exclusive, we wanted to bring our fans an experience that felt uniquely Canadian. This is our thank-you to our Canadian fans.”

The Oro-Medonte resort seemed like an ideal spot to set up shop, according to Taco Bell.

“We want to ensure that as many people as possible have a chance to experience the slide-thru, and Horseshoe is a natural fit given its proximity to major cities,” the statement read.

“Their reputation as one of the top resorts in Canada means that they offer a welcoming facility, with some of the best tubing hills in the country. Horseshoe’s expertise in delivering the best outdoor winter activities paired with Taco Bell’s expertise in delivering the best food experiences is a recipe for a memorable event.”

The slide-thru will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
