Summer is not over yet! My family and I were invited for a day of play at Mountain Creek Waterpark Resort in Vernon, NJ.
Did you that Mountain Creek has activities that can take you through all of the seasons? It is 47 miles from the George Washington Bridge which makes it pretty convenient to head over for some outdoor fun!
Mountain Creek Waterpark has so Much to Offer
What I like most about our visit to Mountain Creek Waterpark is the laughs and smiles from all ages. Look at them laughing after going down the slide together in a two-person tube. The Vertigo and Vortex slides were two of our favorites.
Enjoy a Comfortable Cabana
I always love when places have fun props to take a photo with. To enjoy the day and keep our things all together, we enjoyed our time in a cabana. A great idea when you have a big group and need a home base. There are also lockers right next to the cabanas too in case you would like to lock up any valuables. We also had a wonderful waiter come to our cabana so that we could place an order. With waterpark lines for food being what they are, we were very happy to order.
While at the Wave Pool, my daughter headed over to the skis. As you can see, she is contemplating the next time she will be skiing down the mountain. Lol!
Wave Pools and Slides
The High Tide Wave Pool is definitely an intense one. Be prepared for younger ones to wear life vests and stronger swimmers to enjoy riding the wave.
Although not allowed on some rides, water shoes or some type of footwear is necessary for walking around on the terrain. There is a lot of area to cover to enjoy all the water fun so you definitely need some type of shoe to make it around the park. For rides that you are not able to keep your water shoes on, they have an area that you can leave them.
Bombs Away is the perfect name for the slide. A far climb up the mountain but well worth the ride down. She went on three times before venturing to another part of the park.
Mountain Creek Waterpark is built into nature. Some of the pathways are rock and definitely be on the lookout to see where you are stepping.
We did our best to enjoy as much as we could before a thunderstorm rolled in. Although it is close, after a day at the park, it was great to stay at The Appalachian at Mountain Creek. We enjoyed our evening in the spacious suite and with the storm brewing, we even turned on the fireplace to give the feel of cooler times ahead. We could see how this room would be a great size for a family coming with ski and snow gear too.
So Much to Do at Mountain Creek Resort
In addition to the waterpark, there are so many other outdoor activities to enjoy! Mountain Creek Resort is home to a variety of outdoor recreation activities including Mountain Creek Bike Park, Mountain Creek Waterpark, Great Gorge Golf, the TreEscape Aerial Adventure Ropes Courses and Mountain Creek Zip Tours. Just 47 miles from the George Washington Bridge, Mountain Creek Resort is easily accessible for New York, New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania residents looking for a world-class resort experience.
