Beneath The Sea

The U-Haul truck is brimming with everything we need to take and it amazes me how much stuff we do take. Granted the display and computers take up half of the truck, which are needed. The first crew leaves to night, the second at 7 am tomorrow, the third at 1:30 and the last crew leaves at 6:30 pm tomorrow. After many years of going to BTS we have learned that we always leave behind something needed and with 4 departure times, we can bring everything we need. If you're coming to BTS stop by our booths 401, 403 and 405 and say hi or if you haven't bought your 09 Season Pass, it will be on sale for the pre season price of 175.00. Or if you have purchased your pass, stop by and get a bead necklace. We look forward to seeing all of our friends and those who have yet to become our friends this weekend. These updates (in exactly 7 days) will feature the surface temp, viz and other information you may need as we will be open April 4 & 5. We hope to see you out at BTS and/or for opening weekend!


09 March 2009


So it is March, which means alot to us here. March gives us that excited anxious energy. In March we have Beneath the Sea, our staff meeting and all the little things we need to do in order to open our gates. We dig out all the signs we remove for their protection from the winter, we clean off the platforms, order food and an immense cleaning effort of everything- it's very similar to an intense spring cleaning. With last weekend getting up to 70, we hope that trend continues to warm the water up.
We are preparing for Beneath the Sea, with lots of copying and checking our lists.
The breakfast cafe has complete new siding and looks amazing. The new sign is up on the Sky Challenge talking about our team building. We are fixing all those little things that need fixing.
On the touchy subject of money, the only fee that has increased for 2009 is our season pass price. Admissions, air-fill and food are all the same as they were last year.
We are becoming very active on Facebook- if you haven't joined the 275-odd-million users, you just might want to. We make announcements, are planning on using Facebook as a platform for offering deals to our friends and much more.
That's all I can think of for now, stay tuned for our weekly update for conditions, and if you haven't already- sign-up for Facebook and search for Dutch Springs.
Hope to see you all online and at Beneath The Sea.
