‘Slide the Slopes’ Makes Changes to Enhance Guest Experience

Macungie, Pa – Bear Creek Mountain Resort (Bear Creek) has partnered with Slide the Slopes, the largest inflatable slip n’ slide in the world, to bring more thrills to your summer activities. Slide the Slopes has been operating at the resort for three weeks and despite the numbers saying it’s a hit, the company is striving to create an even better guest experience.
 
Slide the Slopes has been operating between 2pm and 7:30pm, but the sell-out of early time slots prompted the discussion of operational changes to meet guest demands.
 
“We’ve noticed a trend that most guests want to enjoy the water slides during the afternoon,” says Sydney Holmes, Slide the Slopes Event Operations Manager. “The change in our operating times will allow more availability for those who want to come earlier.”
 
Starting August 7th the operation will run from 12pm-5pm with the last session starting at 3pm. This operational change will create more opportunities to experience Slide the Slopes during the sunniest part of the day.
 
“After working with this company for a number of weeks leading up to the launch date, we [Bear Creek] were all excited to see the actual outcome,” says Marketing Content Strategist, Arialle Hess. “Many employees came out on opening weekend to try it out for ourselves; we all had a blast!”
 
Bear Creek has been busy since July 16th and the employee stamp of approval has definitely aided in their marketing efforts to drive business.
 
“It’s been a hit so far, especially with the consistently hot temps we’ve seen this summer,” says Director of Marketing and Guest Experience, Gary Kline. “Having a water activity on property makes summer that much more fun at the resort.”
 
With 5,000 feet of water slides set up on the ski slopes, guests can come out and enjoy an epic tubing experience.
 
Tickets start at $34.99 for general admission, but discounted tickets are available for children, groups, military, and Bear Creek hotel guests.
 
Parking is FREE at the Slide the Slopes dedicated entrance area at Bear Creek Mountain Resort. Tickets are available now at SlideTheSlopes.com.
