New Indoor Water Park Opens in Pennsylvania: More Success for the Area? (by Emmanuel Hernandez)

The Camelback Lodge and Aquatopia Indoor Water Park opened on May 1st, 2015, in Tannersville, Pennsylvania. This water-park is considered as the largest indoor water-park in the Northeast. Personally, I have never been to an indoor water-park before, but I am very intrigued and inclined to visit one. This new water-park and hotel will be a great tourist attraction for vacation goers and leisure travelers. It offers 453 guest rooms and suites with plenty of options to choose from. Not only will this attraction be successful, but it can potentially give Tannersville, Pennsylvania more recognition and success for other businesses around the area. For example, nearby restaurants or museums will generate more business.
The Camelback Lodge and Aquatopia Indoor Water-Park offers many activities for the whole family like water slides, swimming pools, hot tubs, and other non water activities such as an arcade, rock climbing, spas, and fitness centers. In essence, this water-park has activities for the whole family to enjoy and for all ages. There is also a restaurant where guests can enjoy a delicious meal. In addition to all those great things, the place also has space to rent for conventions or parties. This place is truly an all-in-one type deal. The good thing about having an indoor water-park is that the air temperature is controlled. For example, even during the winter, this hotel and water-park can generate sales because the temperature inside could be warm, even though the outside temperature is cold. Overall, this new attraction has me inclined to take a nice vacation with my family any time of the year. I am sure this will give the travel and tourism industry (as well as the hospitality industry in general) great success.
Another great win for residents in Tannersville, Pennsylvania, is that this new indoor water-park and hotel will give residents more opportunities for employment. It will have a great impact on the travel and tourism industry because it will generate even more sales than it already has. The travel and tourism industry also employs billions of people around the world. The industry is expanding and will continue to expand and grow in success.
Do you think this new hotel and indoor water-park will succeed or fail? Why? If you ever been to an indoor water-park, what was your experience like? If you haven’t been to an indoor water-park, are you inclined to visit one after hearing what they have to offer?
