BUSHKILL, PA (SPRING 2014) What is blue and white and flies through the trees? You, if you come to Fernwood Resort this weekend. For the first time in its history, Blue Lightning all season tubing, White Lightning winter tubing, Pocono TreeVentures aerial ropes course and Pocono Zip Racer dual racing zip lines will all be open at the same time. Gina Bertucci, spokesperson for Fernwood Resort, said, “The long cold winter and the recent warming have made it possible for us to still have enough snow to operate our winter tubing hill while opening our new Blue Lightning all season tubing chutes at the same time. Using our new Magic Carpet lift, guests will pay one price and get to do both.”
Last year, the Resort launched its three new amenities and was able to keep its ropes course and zip lines open throughout the winter. Bertucci continues, “As cold and snowy as the winter was, guests still zipped and climbed through the ropes course right through the winter. And now that the temperatures are finally getting well above freezing, they are coming out in even greater numbers.”
As a special discount for anyone who comes out this weekend, the Resort is letting you show your ticket for either tubing or the aerial ropes course and receive a $10 discount off the other attraction for the same day. “We want guests to get maximum enjoyment out of all of our amenities and are willing to give them a $10 discount to make that possible.”
All of the amenities open at 10:00 am on Saturday and Sunday with the ropes and zip lines closing at dusk and the tubing remaining open until 9:00 pm. Bertucci concludes, “This is our version of a blue moon because it is rare that we are able to keep snowtubing open so long. We thought it would be fun to let people experience both for the same ticket purchase.”
Snowtubing tickets are sold in two hour intervals and are $26 for all you can slide. TreeVentures aerial ropes course tickets are $49 for adults and $44 for juniors ages 7 to 11. To receive the $10 discount you will need to show a same day ticket for the other amenity.
Fernwood Resort is located on Route 209 in Bushkill, PA. For information about the amenities go to FernwoodResortPoconos.com or call 570-588-6661 x4210
