More than 20 Jellystone Park Camp-Resort locations are adding new attractions in preparation for the summer camping season. The new attractions range from laser tag and escape rooms to zip lines, water slides and floating aqua parks.

“Our locations have many more attractions than most campgrounds, but our franchisees know it behooves them to continue to invest in new attractions such as water slides and floating obstacle courses,” said Trent Hershenson, vice president of marketing for Leisure Systems, Inc., which franchises more than 75 Jellystone Park locations across the U.S. and Canada.
