U.S. News & World Report ranks Aquatopia #1 indoor waterpark in PA

TANNERSVILLE, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) – Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark was ranked among the 30 top indoor waterparks in the world—and #1 in the state of Pennsylvania—by U.S. News & World Report. Aquatopia offers year-round family fun to guests and visitors at Camelback Resort, the Poconos’ premier adventure destination.
From Camelback Resort:
Catering to guests of all ages, the 125,000-square-foot indoor waterpark is housed under a Texlon® transparent roof that immerses guests in sunlight year-round while providing protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Aquatopia features seven pools, 13 water slides and a multitude of thrilling water attractions, including: Storm Chaser, North America’s longest uphill water coaster; The Great Ka-Na-Gawa Wavepool; an indoor/outdoor hot tub; and Kartrite’s Quest, the world’s first themed “next generation” multi-level aqua play structure equipped with 84 interactive water effects.
“At Camelback, we believe that life needs adventure,” said Ame Cameron, VP of Sales & Marketing at Camelback Resort. “From the innovative slides that appeal to all ages, to our commitment to safety, our priority is ensuring a memorable guest experience and we are proud to receive this recognition.”
Earlier this year, Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark received the “Platinum International Aquatic Safety Award” from Jeff Ellis & Associates, Inc International Aquatic Safety and Risk Management Consultants. This prestigious honor is awarded to aquatic facilities that epitomize safety excellence and exceed industry standards in risk management.
Opened in April 2015, Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark is the most innovative waterpark ever constructed in the U.S. in a single phase. The award-winning leadership and cutting-edge innovations of Aquatic Development Group created the largest indoor waterpark in the Northeast with several never-before-seen attractions, such as the Venus SlydeTrap, a 608-foot-long, fully-enclosed family rafting experience with a record-breaking sphere and open ‘manta’ wall ride. Aquatopia was part of a $163 million project that also included the construction and development of the eight-story, 453-suite Camelback Lodge.
Aquatopia perfectly complements the existing family-friendly adventures at Camelback Resort, including 36 ski trails; the biggest snowtubing park in the U.S.A. with 42 lanes and a nightly Galactic LED light show experience; Pennsylvania’s only Mountain Coaster; North America’s longest twin, 4,000 ft. zip-flyers; and Camelbeach, Pennsylvania’s largest outdoor waterpark.
Located just 90 minutes from New York City and two hours from Philadelphia, Camelback has wide appeal to a broad audience, including families and seasonal outdoor enthusiasts. Camelback Resort serves more than 1.7 million guests annually.
