Tannersville, Pa. – December 21, 2016 – This evening, Camelback Resort officially debuted its new Galactic Snowtubing attraction - an illuminated, exhilarating after-dark snowtube experience that is unlike anything else in the country. Following an official ribbon cutting ceremony, special invited guests and media were among the first to launch themselves down the country’s largest snowtubing park, completely transformed with lasers, music, and an amazing LED light show across all 42 high-speed lanes.
Also new is Base Camp 1 Lodge, located at the base of the snowtubing park. Here guests can purchase snowtubing tickets, relax between exhilarating snowtube runs, and warm up with a cup of hot cider or cocoa and the Camelback tradition of hot waffles, day or night. After a break or snack, guests can quickly and effortlessly get back to the snowtubing thrills by way of two magic carpets that take both tube and rider back to the top.
“Not everybody skis or snowboards, but snowtubing is a fun, outdoor winter activity that everyone can participate in,” said Brian Czarnecki, vice president of sales & marketing. “Camelback Resort is already home to the largest snowtubing park in the country, and the launch of after-dark Galactic Snowtubing completely transforms the experience.”
Camelback Resort offers close-to-home winter fun for beginners to aficionados from northeastern and central PA, along with the markets of NYC, Long Island, NJ and Philadelphia. Guests can come for the day, or stay at Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark and experience Camelback Resort’s many indoor and outdoor amenities.
