THE LARGEST SKI IN/SKI OUT INDOOR WATERPARK HOTEL IN THE U.S. PREPARES TO OPEN IN MARCH
Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark opened its doors this morning to offer city officials, business owners and members of the media a sneak preview of what will be the largest ski in/ski out indoor waterpark hotel in the U.S., and the largest indoor waterpark in the Northeast.
Camelback Resort owners, together with development and management company Stand Rock Hospitality, rolled out the red carpet and handed out hard hats before guiding tours through the 533,000 square-foot, $163 million Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark. The Hard Hat Tour unveiled a unique design, expansive amenities, and showcased the cuisine and hospitality that guests will be able to experience in March when the new Camelback Lodge celebrates its grand opening.
Once complete, the eight-story Camelback Lodge will feature 453 guest suites offered in 24 suite configurations ranging from loft fireplace suites, one and two bedroom executive suites, and family suites with bunk beds, gift shops, adult and kids spas, three sit-down restaurants, including the ski-in/ski-out Trails End Tavern near the Stevenson Chair Lift. The Lodge will also appeal to business travelers, event and wedding planners with more than 20,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space with an incredible panorama of Camelback Mountain.
The 170,000 square-foot family adventure center will include the much anticipated Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark, which will feature seven pools, 13 waterslides, and a multitude of thrilling water attractions. Uniquely designed to be unlike any other indoor waterpark in the USA, Aquatopia will host a combination of waterpark guest favorites such as a wave pool, lazy river and flowrider surfing simulator, as well as never before seen attractions and slides, among them Storm Chaser, the most innovative gravity-defying watercoaster to exist in any indoor waterpark in the U.S., and the world-premier of the Venus SlydeTrap, a family raft ride that combines three exhilarating waterslides experiences into one slide. Aquatopia will be situated under a texlon transparent roofing system which will allow guests to tan indoors at a comfortable 84-degrees, year-round. On the drier side, Arcadia Family Adventure Center will offer two levels of themed activities including more than 100 video, interactive and ticket redemption games, ropes courses and rock climbing for adults and kids, mini-golf, black light laser tag, bowling and an arts and crafts center.
“Camelback Resort has been a place for friends and family to gather, near and far, for 50 years,” said Arthur Berry III, Co-owner of Camelback Resort. “Countless adults and children have learned to ski here and even more have experienced the thrill at Camelbeach Waterpark during the summer season. With the addition of Camelback Lodge and the new Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark, the best is yet to come.”
Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark is located at Camelback Resort in Tannersville, Pa. The heart of the Pocono Mountains draws visitors from New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia with 28 million people living within 180 miles of this vacation destination.
