The summer is not for skiing! That is correct, but at Ski Roundtop in Lewisberry, Pennsylvania a ski resort is the perfect place for a day of fun! No you won't be skiing or snowtubing, but you can biplane, do some ropes courses and climbing, get lost in a maze and go watertubing down the snowtubing hill! This is just a taste of what you can do at Ski Roundtop's Mountain Adventures.
This is the second year in a row my family has visited Ski Roundtop in the summer and it is a ton of fun! Each time we spent a minimum of 4 hours there. That amount of time is not due to a crowd (there was none either time), it was due to being busy and having fun!
The activities are located on what is normally the snowtubing hill and around it. The snowtubing hill is home to watertubing (take an inflatable tube down a wet watery slide) and the OGO Balls. What's an OGO ball. Its a giant inflatable ball that has a cavity inside with water in it. You go in and are pushed down the hill. I can't say if it is fun or not, we haven't tried it, but there is always a small line for that when we go up the hill for tubing.
Right near the hill is ziplining with a short and long option. Some of my family tried the smaller one and enjoyed it. There is also a wooded area with some climbing challenges, mini zip lines, and more!
You want more? How about a maze to walk through and bumper boats? They have them.
All of the above actives are included in the price which, at the time of this writing, is $40 per person. There is no time limit, and If you spend the day there like my family it is worth the price!
Check the Roundtop for restrictions, hours, and any other information. You can also see the live webcam and other pics on the site.
The site has a lodge for food and bathrooms and near the zipline there is a storage area. The food is not bad at all. Nothing special, but not bad (salads, pizza, burgers, yogurt, snacks and more) Lockers are available for $3/day and there are also cubbies.
From the Baltimore area the drive is about 75 minutes. It is well worth it for a day of fun with the family, because YOU CAN NEVER HAVE 2 MUCH FUN!
We'll be back in the winter for snowtubing...so keep your eyes open for our review of that!
