Camelback plans reopening
The 166-acre Camelback Resort, Tannersville, Pennsylvania, plans to re-open its mountain modern-designed hotel, Camelback Lodge in the Pocono Mountains on June 11 with modified services after its recent hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To provide guests with plenty of space, the lodge will re-open only 160 guest suites – 35% capacity – and will limit guests on all adventure rides to ensure physical distancing.
The resort will re-open two of its most popular mountain adventures on the same date – Pennsylvania’s only mountain coaster, Appalachian Express Mountain Coaster by ADG with a 4,500-foot steel track with cars that zoom down the steep slopes of Camelback Mountain and Double Barrel 1,000-foot Ziplines.
After the re-opening of Camelback Lodge, Appalachian Express Mountain Coaster and the Double Barrel 1,000-foot Ziplines, other mountain adventures are on track to open later in the month and Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark soon after that. These include the Mountain Segway Tour, which takes adventurers through the forest on off-road tours complete with magnificent Pocono Mountain views. The 4,000-foot Zip-Flyer experience, Pennsylvania’s longest zipline, can be a “twin” activity with one person flying down the mountain right next to someone else. Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark plans to re-open later in the summer through early September.
To ensure the safety of guests and employees, all guests will be greeted with a wellness screening to include a temperature check with a no-touch infrared thermometer and asked to wear a mask and comply with six-foot physical distancing policies. A small sanitizing kit containing disinfectant spray bottles and/or wipes will be provided in each guest room, and hand sanitizing stations are placed throughout the resort. Enhanced sanitation measures utilizing hospital-grade disinfectants have been deployed throughout the resort.
