Camelback Mountain to Have the Largest Indoor Waterpark in the North East
As announced on the 50 year anniversary, Camelback Mountain Resort is underway with the largest expansion project to date and once completed, it will be the most interactive resort in the U.S.
With the design, supply and build by Aquatic Development Group, Inc., the construction of the all-new $163 million Camelback Lodge and Indoor Waterpark began in September of 2013 and is projected to open in the spring of 2015. The indoor waterpark, known as Aquatopia, will be 125,000 square feet with two levels of water features, seven pools, 19 slides, a FlowRider® and so much more! Here are a few facts about the lodge and indoor waterpark:
- The entire building, at a whopping 580,000 Square feet, is 10 times larger than the White house.
- It is 505 feet from one end of the waterpark to the other – it is only 408 feet from home plate to center field in Yankee Stadium
- It will take about one million person-hours to design and build this whole project
- The Play structure is the FIRST in a New Generation of waterpark play structures. Up until this, all water play structures have been built the same since 1989. The play structure looks, feels and plays completely different than anything built before.
This is one of the many resort projects that ADG has had their hands in from Massanutten Resort, Silver Mountain Resort, Jay peak and more. ADG is an expert in the ski resort industry, helping many ski mountains increases their revenue stream in their “off seasons” by adding a mountain coaster or indoor/outdoor waterpark in order to stay open year round. Since the purchase of Camelback Mountain by Ken Ellis and Partner Arthur Berry III in 2005, the addition of the outdoor waterpark and mountain coaster has shown substantial growth for the resort in these eight short years. With the addition of the new lodge and indoor waterpark, it is almost certain that is will add to the resort in a more substantial way than any other project in the past.
