Seasons of CHANGE at Woodloch!
~ shared by J. Ranner
There’s something rather bittersweet about the end of summer.
The days get ever so slightly shorter, the nights just a smidge cooler, and at Woodloch, we bid adieu to many friends- seasonal workers and summer guests alike – until next year. However, along with the sunsets and the accompanying golden hue that paints the Pocono canopy, there is much to be anticipated as we transition into FALL at Woodloch!
Every year, we always hope for a little bit of a “slow burn” fall- after all, water skiing, swimming and sailing on our lake go straight through Columbus Day Weekend. That’s when the true fun of FALL begins!
October nights are famous, or should we say, INFAMOUS for our creepy crawly Haunted Hayrides. Hop aboard a wagon with friends and family as we take you on a spooktacular journey through our Nature Trail. Your half hour ride will snake through a dozen terrifying scenes from some of your favorite Halloween movies and lore. Costumed characters, blinding lights, booming pyrotechnics and more all add to the charm. You’ll laugh, maybe cry and scream on this rollercoaster of terror. Woodloch’s “Hallo-Weekends” bring our Boo-Lympic Family Games, Trick-Or-Treating, costume parties and more!
Crisp and cool days are just about perfect for that long-awaited corporate retreat. Get the team together for old fashioned team building, with “only at Woodloch” features like Boat Building, Minit-2-Win-It, Woodloch Feud and “The Ultimate Woodloch Games.” Enjoy one last seasonal ride on amenities like our zipline or climbings wall. Autumn is also simply a superb time for late season golf at Woodloch Springs– not to mention the beauty of The Lodge at Woodloch!
Just like the season itself, the arrival of the holidays at Woodloch is just about as MAGICAL as it comes. Every year, just as the Thanksgiving leftovers are boxed up and the wishbones are cracked, Woodloch starts its (literally) overnight transition to Christmas. Our “elves” transform the resort’s indoor and outdoor décor to a full-on holly jolly spectacular. Black Friday culminates with our first heartwarming “Festival of Lights” illuminated wagon rides, which continue straight through New Years!
As the air grows ever colder, Woodloch fires up their famous red snow cannons to create a “Winter Wonderland” of our own! Over the course of a few weeks, we will shape tens of thousands of gallons of water into frosted peaks for use in our Winter Olympics and TWO snow tubing hills!
And thus, a new year of fun and adventure begins at our resort… enjoy it in all four seasons!
