When you hear all-inclusive resort, huge military vehicles probably aren’t the first thing to come to mind. But maybe the most unique of our weekly activities is a military-themed version of our Just for Fun Rides.
Every Monday night, guests of all ages are invited to enjoy our special fleet of military vehicles, including a 6x6, Jeep, Humvee, Gama Goat and yes, a real tank. We’ve acquired our fleet of seven vehicles over the years by working with various collectors all over the country, and even finding a few on Ebay. All you need to do is hop in, and we’ll do the rest! We have special courses lined up for each vehicle, including paths through the woods, mud and some thrilling bumps.
It’s a way to feel the true power of these large vehicles – for many guests, for the first time – to feel connected to our veterans and those who are serving overseas, and to spark your children’s imagination for future play. Come on out, wear your camouflage and rumble around the Sunny Hill grounds in the picturesque Catskill Mountains. The memories are yours to make!
