Blue Lightning Tubing Fall Getaway

Monday, September 7, 2015

BUSHKILL, PA (FALL 2015) – Fall is a beautiful time in the Pocono Mountains and, with the addition of Blue Lightning all season tubing to The Villas and Fernwood Resort, you can now slide down the slope surrounded by the beautiful fall foliage of the Pocono Mountains. Gina Bertucci, spokesperson for Blue Lightning, said, “Traditionally the arrival of fall to the Poconos heralds the return of cooler temperatures, spectacular displays of fall foliage, a host of fall festivals and lots of outdoor attractions to take it all in.” She continues, “Our amenities offer a birdseye view of the fall foliage at Pocono TreeVentures aerial ropes adventure course, Pocono Zip Racer dual 1,000 ft racing zip lines and the opportunity to tube in the fall, are all fantastic experiences you can now enjoy within walking distance to your villa.”

Blue Lightning Tubing is located on the slope that in winter is home to The Villas White Lightning Tubing park. It allows guests to experience the thrill of tubing throughout the year on lanes made of a blue synthetic turf-like material. It is easy to do. Customers ride the new Magic Carpet lift up to the top then glide down in hard bottomed tubes that are lubricated for an exhilarating experience much like sledding but in a tube without snow or water.

The Villas and Fernwood Resort Blue Lightning Tubing packages start at $107 a night midweek for a studio villa and include two tickets to Blue Lightning all season tubing. There are lights for night tubing and throughout the fall there will be live entertainment at Wintergreens Patio Grill located next to Blue Lightning Tubing at the bottom of the hill. Guests of the resort have preferred pricing for other resort amenities such as Pocono TreeVentures, canoeing on the Delaware River, horseback riding, paintball, and discounts to nearby attractions such as Shawnee Mountain Festivals and Bushkill Falls – the Niagara of Pennsylvania both located just minutes from the Resort.       

Blue Lightning will be open Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays from 5:00 to 8:00 pm and weekends and holidays from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm through December until the opening of the White Lightning Tubing when winter returns.

Blue Lightning tubing is located on Route 209 just off Exit 309 of I-80 minutes from Delaware Water Gap. Bertucci concludes, “Fall is a perfect time for a getaway to the Poconos and whether you like an active outdoor lifestyle or prefer to just sit back, relax by a fire and admire the beautiful foliage, we offer something for everyone.” For Blue Lightning information and reservations go to
