Camelback Indoor Waterpark Hotel

08 August 2014, 14.47 | Posted in resorts | No comments »


Shit is about to be poppin on the East Coast when Camelback Mountain in Pennsylvania becomes home to the biggest ski In/ski out Indoor waterpark hotel in America. If that sounds crazy to you, don’t worry it sounds bananas to us as well – but we can’t wait to go there! Called the Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark, the 533,000 suqare foot structure costs $163 million and will feature: six pools, wavepool, lazy river, swim up bar, the Bombora Flowrider indoor surfing simulator, and 13 waterslides. It’s also going to have the longest indoor “watercoaster” in the U.S, the largest installation of Texlon transparant roofing for year-round sun tanning, and a 30,000 square-foot entertainment center including arcade, indoor ropes course, nine-hole mini-golf, laser tag arena, bowling, and laser maze. An oh yeah, you can snowboard right up to the front door. The outside is above, take a look at the floorplan after the jump.

Although Vermont’s old guard and especially Stratton Mountain have got to be seriously bummed, the truth is that the event had no room to grow and was unrealistically reliant on Vermont’s sporadic Spring weather to compete with Dew Tour and X Games.
