Speaking from personal experience, I highly recommend choosing a vacation spot that’s accessible by car if you’ve got young kids, especially toddlers.
The last time I took my then four-year-old on a plane, he absolutely refused to sit in the seat I purchased for him. (Don’t get me started on what a waste of money that was.) He proceeded to run up and down the aisles, much to the chagrin of the flight attendants, who didn’t feign a smile as he tugged at their clothes to try to slither between their legs.
However, when you take a road trip, you’re in the driver’s seat, which ultimately means you don’t to have to keep your kids quiet. They can wail if they like – and you can just crank up the radio. And the best part: no airplane restrooms, which are not the easiest place to change a diaper!
One of the coolest new vacation spots that’s better than just a day at the beach, offers fully interactive water sports, from a wave pool to a surfing attraction called the Flow Rider to tubing, sand and lounging and which can be planned on a whim is Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark in the Pocono Mountains where depending upon the season you and your kidlets can enjoy; skiing, water sports, adventure, zip lines and more and if you and your kidlets are rollercoaster enthusiasts you are in for a TREAT! Now you can love them even more by controlling the speed and the experience yourself with a Mountain Coaster coming to CBK Mountain Adventures on August 7th!th,
Just what is this Mountain Coaster you ask? It’s a 4500′ stainless steel track that’s 38′ up at its highest point, with two vast 360 degree turns. The coaster is a year round attraction that provides amazing visibility of the mountains, skiers, swimmers, sun worshipers, Flowriders, bungee jumpers, zip liners and more. The Mountain Coaster’s system pulls the car, which seats two people (maximum weight 350lbs) up the ski slopes of Camelback on the track.
The “up” takes about 5 minutes as guests gain lots of visibility of the area. Then, as you get to the top, gravity takes overâ€¦ but you control the speed and the brakes as you head down, gaining maximum speeds of 25 to 30 mph. You must be at least nine years of age and a minimum of 52″ to ride the mountain coaster by yourselfâ€¦so it’s truly fun for all ages. To ride as a passenger, you must be at least 3 years old and 36″ tall with a driver of at least 18 years of age. Safety is paramount on the Mountain Coaster and is built into the system. Get too close to the car in front of you and the brakes will automatically come on. Take your seat belt off, and again the brakes will come on for protection. So, if anyone at Camelbeach wants to ride the mountain coaster or zip flyer (both of which are advertised in Camelbeach) they can buy a ticket in Camelbeach or make a reservation ahead of time (the zip flyer does sell out).
