Oktuberfest at Blue Lightning Tubing

Saturday, October 24, 2015

BUSHKILL, PA (October 24 2015) – It’s time to get out and enjoy the beauty of the Pocono Mountains when the trees in their brilliant fall foliage display and Blue Lightning Tubing has added OktuberFest to give you the chance to you enjoy the foliage and try the only all season tubing park in the region.

Blue Lightning Tubing was recently added to the Resort and is located on the slope that in winter is home to White Lightning Snowtubing all within walking distance to your villa. The park 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 Magic Carpet lift up to the top then glide down in hard bottomed tubes for an exhilarating experience much like sledding but in a tube without snow or water.

            OktuberFest will be held Saturday, October 24 from noon to 7:00 pm and includes a one hour tubing session, fall activities, live entertainment, and a $5.00 Wintergreens Patio Grill Food Voucher for $19 per person. Gina Bertucci, spokesperson for Blue Lightning, said, “Last year we decided to create a signature fall event for Blue Lightning that gives families a chance to get out and experience the thrill of sliding down the hill at Blue Lightning tubing, enjoy fall themed activities, and eat at Wintergreens Patio Grill for one low price. All season tubing doesn’t take any special equipment. You just need to wear closed toe shoes to ride the Magic Carpet lift. It was so well received we brought it back again.” Blue Lightning is open Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays from 5:00 to 8:00 pm and weekends and holidays from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm throughout the fall. Specialty nights are offered at Wintergreens, located at the base of the tubing park, that include Karaoke, Brain Freeze Trivia, Pocono Comedy Jam on Saturdays and live R&B on Friday nights.

Blue Lightning tubing is located on Route 209 in Bushkill, PA. Bertucci concludes, “This family themed fall activity will be a great way to get outdoors and experience the beauty of the Poconos in all their colorful glory. We are offering a weekend package that makes it possible to go to OktuberFest then try one of our other amenities including Pocono Zip Racer our dual racing zip lines, and Pocono TreeVentures aerial ropes course.” OktuberFest weekend packages start at $203 a night for one bedroom villa accommodations.
