Blue Lightning Tubing Summer Getaway

Monday, June 13, 2016

BUSHKILL, PA (Summer 2016) – Summer has arrived 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 sunshine and blue skies all year long. Gina Bertucci, spokesperson for Blue Lightning, said, “Summer is a great time in the great outdoors of the Pocono Mountains. Blue Lightning makes it possible to tube into the night under the lights.” She continues, “We have been adding new attractions to our resort in the last few years including Pocono TreeVentures, which is an aerial ropes adventure course, Pocono Zip Racer, featuring dual 1,000 ft racing zip lines, and Blue Lightning Tubing - the only all season tubing park in the region.”

Blue Lightning Tubing is located on the slope that is home to White Lightning Snowtubing in wintertime, using the same Magic Carpet lift to ride to the top of the slope. 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 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 $164 a night midweek for a two-night studio villa and include two tickets to Blue Lightning all season tubing. There are lights for night tubing throughout the summer. There will be special events such as Frugal Fridays, movie nights, karaoke, Pocono Comedy Jam on Saturdays, and specialty nights such as Pasta Night and Caribbean Night with a live band. Guests of the resort have preferred pricing for other resort amenities such as Pocono TreeVentures, Pocono Zip Racer, canoeing on the Delaware River, horseback riding, paintball, massage, and discounts to nearby attractions such as Shawnee Mountain Festivals and Bushkill Falls – the Niagara of Pennsylvania both located just minutes away.

Blue Lightning is open daily beginning June 17. It is located on Route 209 next to the Tree Tops and Fairway timeshare villas. Bertucci concludes, “Tubing is one of our most popular attractions. With the addition of Blue Lightning, we can now offer it year round.” For Blue Lightning information and reservations, go to
