The Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark, Kiamesha Lake, New York, has opened, bringing summer fun to the Catskill Mountains all year long. Fusing the style of Manhattan with the rustic charm of the mountains, this new luxe family resort features 324 all-suite accommodations, a two-acre indoor waterpark, indoor entertainment centre including arcade, mini-bowling, and ropes course, seven restaurants and bars, a relaxing spa, 11,000 square foot (1022 sq m) conference centre, and more.
Located 90 minutes outside of New York City on 1,600 breathtaking acres (648 hectares) of the Resorts World Campus, guests will be immediately transported from the moment they exit the freeway as the resort cheekily blends fun with style, contemporary with nature, and thrills with relaxation for a new family adventure.
Heated to a toasty 84º F (29º C) year-round, New York’s biggest indoor waterpark (80,000 square feet or 7,432 sq m) delights underneath an energy-efficient, Texlon transparent roofing system. Designed by Aquatic Development Group, more than 10 thrilling waterslides by ProSlide and adventures present their own personality – from the high-speed dives and drops of The Krakken and gnarly waves of the Flowrider surf simulator, to the laid-back 500 foot long (152 m) lazy river and the serene, indoor/outdoor Affinity Springs warm spa. Open seven days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., premium deck space, lush landscaping, warm climate vegetation including a living plant wall, and an elevated cabana oasis complete the newest four-season attraction.
Perched on the mezzanine level overlooking the waterpark, 15 deluxe cabanas offer the perfect reprieve from the sun. Each cabana features lounge chairs and towels, 32 inch (271 cm) high-definition televisions, cooling fans, with mini fridge stocked with healthy snacks, water and assorted non-alcoholic drinks, with full food and beverage service.
Adventure continues on land with an endless selection of arcade redemption games found at Playopolis, from the nostalgic to the latest interactive learning. Thrill-seekers climb the LED-lit rock wall, Scrapeskyer, from Spectrum Sports, or zip through Carabiners rope obstacle course from Ropes Courses Inc., while friendly competition is found at Van Winkle’s mini bowling alley by Qubica, Amazequest Laser Tag from Creative Works, and more.
The Kartrite boasts eight uniquely themed bars and restaurants, serving locally sourced ingredients from upstate farms and craft purveyors. Rest and relaxation abound at Chill Spa, the premier spot for massages, body treatments, wraps, and nail service. At Sweat, guests enjoy 24-hour access to a state of the art fitness centre.
