Our Jersey Family Fun families LOVE indoor waterparks. From our New Jersey favorite Sahara Sam’s to Kalahari in the Poconos, we always have a great time when we visit! Last year we enjoyed Aquatopia at Camelback Resort and recently it was announced that the Camelback owners will open a new family friendly destination, called Kartrite Indoor Waterpark, on 1600 acres in the Catskills region of New York state. We also love to travel, so we just had to share with you the details on this exciting new indoor waterpark for the northeast!
In an effort to revitalize The Catskills region as an international destination comes the development of The Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark in Monticello New York at the site of Resorts World Catskills.
2019 UPDATE: Benchmark Resorts & Hotels took over the project from Camelback recently and will operate the property as one of theirs under the name, The Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark.
Where will The Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark be located?
Nestled in the historic Catskills region of New York State, The Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark is less than 2 hours from New York City, Northern New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. The Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark will be located at 555 Resorts World Drive Monticello in New York.
When will The Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark open?
The Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark will be opening early 2019! The topping off ceremony (when the last beam is placed on the structure) took place on February 16, 2018. Check out this photo of the last beam being set into place. Exciting stuff!
How big will the Kartrite Indoor Waterpark be?
The Kartrite Indoor Waterpark will cover two acres of indoor waterpark space. The luxury hotel will offer 350+ exquisitely designed rooms and suites, 324 guest suites will be perfectly sized for families.
What will the Kartrite Indoor Waterpark be like?
The four season waterpark will feature a transparent roof to let in natural light, a mezzanine with luxury cabanas and vegetation that will thrive in the warm environment. Sounds like indoor will feel a lot like outdoor – year round!
What other activities will be available at The Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark?
When it’s warm enough to be outside you can also head to the planned ropes course or stay inside and enjoy the arcade.
