Sullivan County, NY - Plans will be unveiled tomorrow on the building of $5.5 million indoor water park at Holiday Mountain Ski and Fun Park.


Holiday Mountain owner Craig Passante said that he plans to break ground next spring on the 20,000-square-foot water park that could be open by spring of 2010. The park will add 50-75 jobs at the year-round recreation and amusement spot.

The initial funding for the project will come from a $1 million state grant secured by state Sen. John Bonacic to the Sullivan County Industrial Development Agency, that is working with Town of Thompson Supervisor Tony Cellini and Passante.

Passante said that he has talked with developers to build a hotel adjacent to the park.

The camps, both girls and boys separately, contract out the water parks so the kids can have fun in a frum atmosphere. I'm sure that Holiday Mt will do the same. and yes it would be so much better even though the trip is fun. The kids will be back in camp before 12 midnight this way. Why do so many people have to look at everything in such a negative way.

The reason a government grant is involved might have something to do with attempts to revive the completely dead economy of the area. Do you see all the shuttered storefronts? Unemployment is out of hand. Some development is a good way to get things moving.

As for the comments about the "Sutan"... if the park doesn't fit your lifestyle you have every right not to use it. Nothing personal against you but there will be plenty of people who will enjoy this. You have your ways, they have theirs.
