BUSHKILL, PA (Fall 2016) – It’s time to get out and enjoy the beauty of the Pocono Mountains when the trees are showing their brilliant fall foliage. Blue Lightning Tubing has brought back 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 is located on the slope that in winter is home to White Lightning Snowtubing and is 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 Sunday, October 2 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and includes a day of tubing, a special fall activity, and a voucher for a free fountain drink at Wintergreens Patio Grill for just $18 per person. Gina Bertucci, spokesperson for Blue Lightning, said, “A few years ago 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 have brought it back again.” Blue Lightning is open Mondays and Fridays from 5:00 to 8:00 pm and weekends from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm throughout the fall. Specialty nights are offered at Wintergreens, located at the base of the tubing park, which 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. Come try Blue Lightning and partake in OktuberFest, then try one of our other amenities including Pocono Zip Racer our dual racing zip lines, and Pocono TreeVentures aerial ropes course.” For OktuberFest and Blue Lightning information, go to BlueLightningTubing.com.
