    Does anyone recall what the wireless internet fee would be for the week?
    If you do not bring your laptop, does the resort have an internet cafe where you can spend a few minutes on the internet?
    I'm interested in the magic show. Does anyone know how much it is, and is it suitable for children?

    what a rip-off! But I guess if we're on vacation....we should be on vacation and not need internet, but it would be nice though.

    We have been looking up the local libraries. We go maybe 2 or 3 times for the week we are away. No hassle of bringing the laptop, and it is always free. Have yet to find a library that has charged us.

    We use dial up through a local number when at Massanutten. Local calls are free. I think they have a time limit of 45 or 60 minutes on phone calls. Not highspeed but good for checking emails. Fairly easy to set up.

    I refuse to pay Massanutten's internet fee at those prices. WAY too high in my opinion.

    Magic show - $10.00, or free with activity card. Well worth it, we go watch every time we visit.

    Massanutten Internet

    I too would not pay those rip off prices for their internet. But, I guess it is expensive for them to provide wireless since the resort is so spread out. However, it's an option. You are free to take it or leave it. I find that more and more resorts are providing low cost or free internet....at least an internet room with a few computers.

    I now have a Verizon wireless internet card so I can be online anywhere there is a Verizon signal. When I didn't have it, I had my home SBC/Yahoo DSL account that came with local dial up numbers throughout the country. I justified the $60 per month charge by canceling my home land line and DSL. Since I'm away from home about 3 months out of the year it wasn't cost effective to keep both.

    The nearest library is in the town of Elkton about 5 or 6 miles east of Massanutten. I've used their internet at least once when I had to print something out.

    Missed that part - Magic show is WONDERFUL for children, there is always quite a few, and I have seen them get called up to sit on the floor right next to the stage. Jason Bishop does have a website, he is the magician I have seen there many times - once or twice there was someone else.
