Kalahari Waterpark Resort in Sandusky, Ohio

Welcome to Kalahari Waterpark Resort in Sandusky, Ohio.

Kalahari Waterpark Resort in Sandusky, Ohio:  Kalahari Waterpark Resort opened a record breaking indoor waterpark in Ohio with an 80,000 square foot waterpark, 308 guest rooms, 2 restaurants, a day spa, a miniature golf course, a pottery decorating area, a video arcade, and an amazing meeting and conference center. With the opening of a huge expansion project in 2007, the Kalahari become the largest indoor waterpark in the US, with a mind-boggling 160,000 square feet of water fun.

For large families or extended family groups, this is probably the park to pick. Their Village Suite, the largest room available among all three waterparks, holds 12 adults and includes a full-sized and fully equipped kitchen. In addition, there’s plenty to do besides just play in the water.

Does your family like arts and crafts? You can decorate pottery, do make-it-take-it crafts, have body art done, or get a caricature made. If unique shopping is more your bag, you can pick up a cool swimsuit or an authentic piece of African art or have someone’s name engraved on a piece of rice and set into jewelry.

Family members who are into health and fitness can play miniature golf, use the workout area, or get a massage at the spa. Plus, I can’t forget to mention the Surfari FlowRider. Surfing in Ohio. And indoors, yet. How cool is that?

There’s even a two-story dry playhouse area for tots who aren’t so fond of the water, and (in the summer) a big outdoor pool area lined with rentable bungalows that include mini fridges, flat-screen TVs, and lounge chairs. Really, there’s something for everyone!

I love Ohio waterpark vacations, especially in the winter. You never have to worry about the weather’s effect on your plans. You aren’t taking a long expensive airplane trip to get somewhere (which means no hassles with airport security – yay!) You can spend an entire day in your swimsuit, even in January. Best of all, you can eat, sleep, shop, and play without ever having to go outside.

Find out for yourself what specials and options each property offers and then choose the one that’s just right for your family. Check them out. You’ll be glad you did! – Review written by Betty Winslow
