Great Escape pitching indoor waterpark

Posted Monday, January 26, 2004 7:59 AM | Contributed by supermandl

The Great Escape is pitching a 32,000-square-foot water park. John S. Collins, the park's general manager, said he also expects the enclosed water slides, river ride and surfable waves -- all of which would be attached to a proposed 200-room Adirondack-style hotel -- would be busy during the park's peak summer months as well.

All I can say is that I'm excited and it's about time!

Now I'll have something to do during the winter months. ;-)

If it's like a lot of the other indoor water parks though, you'll have to pay a hefty price to stay the night in the hotel. I doubt it's going to be something where you can buy a season pass for $60 bucks or something! :(

DawgByte II's avatar Of course it's nothing you can buy a season pass for 60 beans for.

The main intention for the waterpark is for the hotel guests staying at the lodge itself. I think they may allow a limited number of outside guests in for the day at a given price point... but the main purpose is to attract people around the Adirondack region to stay here at this lodge because it offers something that no other hotel in the region offers... a full indoor waterpark.

Either way... I tell ya one thing... it may turn me from a tent camper to a hotel stayer for at least one year when I visit the area!
