Indoor Water Fun at Kalahari
Kalahari is a year-round attraction, with a giant indoor water park, currently America’s largest. The park contains more than two dozen attractions, with several waterslides, a wave pool, and an area for smaller children.
Parents will have a great time playing with the young people among the attractions that include a pool with basketball hoops and roaring water for surfing.
The fine Kalahari staff provides swimming lessons and fun for all, with karaoke, games, and arts and crafts. There are numerous lifeguards for the safety of patrons.
The Downstairs Game Area
Outside the entrance to the indoor water park is a game area, with favorite video arcade games and a miniature golf course. There is a dry play area, and when the kids are exhausted from too much activity, a pottery play shop provides a break.
In the area leading into the water park are clean locker rooms for men and women. The entire water park is clean and well maintained, and guests are reminded by signs to keep it that way for the enjoyment of all.
Outdoor Pools at Kalahari
Summer brings more vacationers to Sandusky, and the warm weather allows Kalahari to open the outdoor water park, with additional pools and play areas.
This area opens on Memorial Day through Labor Day.
Lodging and Shopping at Kalahari
This African-themed resort has hundreds of modern rooms, some of which are quite a distance from the water park. There is plenty of parking for the lodging and attractions, but guests will want to consider the valet parking, at least until they get their bearings in the huge resort.
The rooms are spacious, but the best views are reserved for the larger suites. Half the rooms look out on the giant parking lots, anyway.
There are many choices for food at the resort, including pizza and another light fare, along with a full-service restaurant. A marketplace, coffee shop, and candy shop round out the many choices.
Convention Center and Adult Fun
Kalahari boasts a modern convention center for meetings and events. Adults attending a function will find bars with alcohol in the resort, and can also enjoy the full-service Spa Kalahari.
Prices are comparable to other attractions in the area, and lodging guests can enjoy admission to the water park included.
Reservations and information can be obtained by calling 1-800-KALAHARI.
