Camelback Resort located in the Pocono Mountains of PA, has brought back an iconic attraction to their mountain with the opening of their brand new Mountain Slide attraction. With a new design and a new name, the ‘Pocono Pipeline’ is reminiscent of the once popular Alpine Slide that operated from 1977-2003 at the mountain.
Gone are the old yellow and red sleds from the 1970’s, the new sleds feature a cool green and black décor that reflect the updated 21st century look and feel of the ride. Putting safety at the forefront, ADG Mountainsides developed the new Mountain Slide with a non-abrasive fiberglass track that offers a smooth surface that heightens the sensations of speed and improves control over the older, poured concrete models. Two dueling chutes take guests 2,800 feet down the mountain through multiple dips, high-G turns, and tunnels.
“The Alpine Slide has real sentiment among those guests who grew up coming to the Pocono Mountains and Camelback Resort,” said Arthur Berry III, co-owner of Camelback Resort. “We are really excited to bring back a new and improved version of this iconic attraction from ADG. Many of our guests tell us they’re looking forward to sharing this nostalgic ride with their own children.”
In addition to the Mountain Slide, ADG also supplied the popular 4,500-foot Appalachian Express Mountain Coaster at Camelback.
