The park has been planned for years now, and will give the resort a full roster of Summer activities - obviously the Ski Resort aspect of Blue Mountain's name means that they're pretty busy in the Winter. Camelbeach water park, located only 30 miles from where Summit Splash would be built, has proven the concept can work. Camelback Ski Resort operates similarly, with a busy ski season and then a full water park for the warm months.
With the existing Camelbeach water park only 30 minutes away to the Northeast, and Dorney Park's Wildwater Kingdom only 20 miles away to the South, one has to wonder if the new park will overly saturate the market. Blue Mountain plans a 110 room hotel to accommodate new visitors - the Poconos are famous for pulling New York and New Jersey visitors - so perhaps there is room after all. We shall see!
