Bear Creek Mountain Resort has partnered with Slide the Slopes, the largest inflatable slip n’ slide in the world, to bring more thrills to the Berks/ Lehigh region. Stretching over 1,200 feet on multiple courses, down one of the areas largest mountains in the area, the attraction opened July 16 and runs through September 6.
Participants from ages four and up have unlimited access to the Slide the Slopes in two-hour sessions. During this time, Bear Creek runs their Magic Carpet and Triple Chair to shuttle guests to the top of the course.
“Slide the Slopes is a safe, fun, and wet adventure where our guests can spend time in a dazzling outdoor setting, enjoying a variety of courses of various lengths, soaking up the sunshine, and being able to reconnect with friends and family this summer” said Ryan Davis, owner of Slide the Slopes.
Slide the Slopes has been operating between 2pm and 7:30pm, but the sell-out of early time slots prompted the discussion of operational changes to meet guest demands.
“We’ve noticed a trend that most guests want to enjoy the water slides during the afternoon,” says Sydney Holmes, Slide the Slopes Event Operations Manager. “The change in our operating times will allow more availability for those who want to come earlier.”
On August 7th, the operation changed to run from 12pm-5pm with the last session starting at 3pm. This operational change creates more opportunities to experience Slide the Slopes during the sunniest part of the day.
“As a four-season resort we’re excited to partner with Slide the Slopes to bring new and exciting opportunities for guests to visit Bear Creek and experience our resort this summer,” said Erin Visco-Chapman, General Manager of Bear Creek Mountain Resort. “We hope guests who particpate in Slide the Slopes will join us and make it an extended stay and enjoy a family-fun stay.”
Bear Creek has been busy since July 16th and the employee stamp of approval has definitely aided in their marketing efforts to drive business.
“It’s been a hit so far, especially with the consistently hot temps we’ve seen this summer,” says Director of Marketing and Guest Experience, Gary Kline. “Having a water activity on property makes summer that much more fun at the resort.”
With 5,000 feet of water slides set up on the ski slopes, guests can come out and enjoy an epic tubing experience.
Tickets start at $34.99 for general admission, but discounted tickets are available for children, groups, military, and Bear Creek hotel guests.
