Autumn is passing us by pretty quick and leaving us with little time to do all of those things we promised ourselves we would before the first snowfall. If you are looking for unique things to do in Pennsylvania before winter, add the state's only mountain coaster to your itinerary.
Tucked away in the northeastern half of the state lies a hidden gem in the Poconos, the Camelback Mountain Coaster; open 7 days a week during peak season.
Weather permitting, this fun little coaster will remain open on the weekends in November, and the best part? It's pretty darn cheap too. For only $12 you can ride singular, or for $20 you and a passenger can enjoy the trip together!
During your adrenaline-rushing 4,500 ft mountain descent, you will experience fast speeds, steep slopes and trees seemingly within arms reach.
Have kids and want them to experience the fun too? No worries, drivers must be at least 53" tall and a minimum of 9 years old, while riders can be a minimum of 36" and 3 years old (driven by someone 16 or older). Combined passenger weight cannot exceed 300lbs.
Tickets do not have to be booked in advance but it is advisable anyways to reserve your preferred time slot.
While the mountain coaster is certainly enough to make us want to pack our bags for a road trip alone, don't miss out on everything else Camelback Lodge & Indoor Waterpark has to offer, like ziplining, pools, and seasonal events!
So what are you waiting for? Get out there and enjoy what's left of the nice weather!
