Massanutten, Va. – June 22, 2021
– Massanutten Resort, a premier all-season resort with endless opportunities for adventure, today announced its summer offerings including a variety of new activities, the official launch of its expanded Outdoor WaterPark and the opening of its new wellness store, Balanced Roots.
“We’re excited to welcome guests to take in our fresh mountain air and enjoy some much-needed, well-deserved relaxation this summer,” said Matthias Smith, general manager at Massanutten Resort. “The Massanutten team can’t wait to showcase the new additions we’ve made to our resort, and we look forward to creating an unforgettable vacation experience for our guests with something exciting to do around every corner.”
Offerings that guests can enjoy at the resort this summer include:
- Expanded Outdoor WaterPark
Visitors can beat the heat at the resort’s newly expanded Outdoor WaterPark, where they can race down one of the resort’s three new water slides – Mass Mayhem, Peak Plunge or Valley Vortex. The Inner Tube Slides create an exciting ride with unexpected twists, drops and tight corners, and the Reverse Freefall Rainbow Slide will thrill riders with a 47-foot plummet down the half pipe.
The newest addition to Massanutten’s array of on-site shops, Balanced Roots will give guests the opportunity to create custom Zen gardens and shop all-natural health and wellness products. After retail therapy, guests are invited to clear their minds and melt away stress in a meditation room, with soothing music and calming fragrances to leave them feeling renewed.
Guests can challenge friends and family to a competitive and fun round of street curling, a new addition to the resort this summer, located at Massanutten Fitness & Rec Club. Similar to shuffleboard, street curling originated in Scotland in the 16th
century and involves sliding granite stones into a target area. Easy to play but hard to master, street curling can be played with different stones for every experience level.
- New Music and Art Classes
For those wanting to get in touch with their musical side, the resort now offers bongo and harmonica classes, as well as ukulele for all skill levels. Guests can also take classes on landscape, caricature and animal sketching or reset in a meditation class.
