Construction of $2 Million Rides at Camelbeach Begins

Spring Skiing Continuing with Full Snow-Covered Slopes
Tannersville, PA - There's a lot of winter season left to enjoy wonderful skiing and snowboarding and Camelback Mountain Resort, located in the heart of the Pocono Mountains, just 1 ½ hours from the New York metro area, has all the ingredients for a fun-packed day on the slopes. Even though the slopes of Camelback aren't schedule to close until April 2nd, you're probably looking at this picture and asking yourself...why would a ski resort want to push snow off their slopes? Because at Camelback Mountain Resort...the "fun" business doesn't end when the snow just means that another season begins.

Camelback Mountain Resort is also home to Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark, the largest outdoor waterpark in Pennsylvania. In fact, Camelbeach has more slides than any waterpark in Pennsylvania or New Jersey. "Do we really need to push snow off the slopes this early? Not usually and a lot of guests are looking quite puzzled at the fact that we are," says Brian Czarnecki, VP of Sales & Marketing at Camelback. "We're only pushing the snow off two slopes to make way for the construction of the waterpark's two new family tube rides, SandStorm and Dune Runner. Everything about these two new rides literally screams excitement. SandStorm has a pair of tantrum funnels for twice the thrills with twice the panic-inducing fun, while Dune Runner has triple dune drops that build your speed before plunging you into the waters below." adds Czarnecki.

Over 2 million dollars will be spent on the two new slides at Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark, fresh off a 3 million dollar expansion of the four-story, family-friendly, Pharaoh's Phortress ride-house feature added in 2008. The park's count of rides, slides and attractions now totals over 35. Camelbeach will open on the Memorial Weekend Holiday, while the two new rides will open on June 17th.
