New mountain slide opens at Camelback

POCONO TWP., Pa. - A new attraction in the Poconos is being hailed as a 21st century upgrade to the famed Alpine Slide.

The Pocono Pipeline Mountain Slide is now open at Camelback Mountain Adventures.

The slide goes down a 2,800--foot track at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour. It replaces the former long-time mountain slide that closed about 12 years ago.

"We've seen a lot of interest through social media and our traditional guests have led us to know it's something they did as a child and they're excited to bring their kids out and do again," said Dru Brooks, director of sales and marketing.

Camelback said the new attraction is open daily but they recommend buying a ticket ahead of time due the popularity of the ride.
