We have had three generations to this waterpark twice already, and it was great fun for all. So many water features to choose from; any kind of food that you may want, and it's all good; an arcade that seems to go on forever; even an outdoor zip line! The employees are all top notch. This place is a good... More

We stayed on a Thursday night during April Spring Break time. The bellman told us the hotel was at 85% capacity. It was a fun little break, especially for our 11 year old twins. Here are some notes about our experience: Check In and Room: We arrived in Sandusky around 1 pm. I called from the car and was happy... More

Waterpark awesome. A Top 10 easily - and its indoors. Has all the elements - coaster, mats, tubes, body slides. And pretty much 2 of everything, like the Flowrider - that and limited admission helps keep lines down. Arcade a combination of D&B and ESPN Zone. Food was good - have a meal and game card combo like D&B. Waterpark... More

Very cool place! We just went for the day. Would like to go back for a weekend, just not on Spring Break:) There is plenty to do. Even bowling! They had a pottery room. You can paint a piece of pottery and they will fire it and have it ready the next day for pick up! Cabanas were cool. Big... More

We visited on spring break week in MI so I assumed it would be packed and it was. I brought older kids (11-16 yrs old) and they still had alot of fun. Be prepared to walk alot, our room was quite far from the park and the pkg lot is not that close either. Have alot of extra cash for... More

Water park is lots of fun, great slides, separate areas for younger children. There were many areas for lounging and relaxing. Lines are very long but do thin out later in the day. Food options are limited within the park, are expensive and only average in quality. There are other options within the hotel and just down the road in... More

Families will love Kalahari waterpark but this place has no shame when it comes to picking pockets of customers. I would think they'd be better served to increase overall price and throw in a few extras without cost. Tip: Do not eat there, plenty of restaurants on Route 250 in Sandusky with more affordable and better meals. Be sure and... More

Hello! I'm thrilled you love Kalahari's Waterpark. I'm disappointed you weren't made aware of the great dining options we do have within the Resort such as Cafe Mirage, which has great sandwiches, wraps & pizzas. The Reserve also has a Dine & Play option & for $17.99 you get a meal plus $10 arcade play card! I will pass on... More

Kids love the park! Cost is high for the very simple tight hotel room you get for 6 people. Would love to see Kalahari and all the other big name water park hotels that we have been to provide "adult time" swimming. The parents pay a lot to bring the family, I think they would be more apt to return... More

Hi! I'm thrilled to hear your kids loved the park. I wanted to be sure that you are aware we have several different room styles, there is a two room family suite which is great for families or a combination suite. I encourage you to check on our website under rooms. We also have the adult swim up bar, that... More

From check in (delayed 30 mninutes, suite was not ready), to poor service, lousy food and slide attendants more interested to chitchatting with each other than getting people in line on attractions, this was the worst vacation I have experienced in my 57 years. Low water pressure in the bathrooms and safes not working required 6 calls to maintenance. House... More

had hoped NOT to have to do this but I have reached out to guest services with Kalahari Resort in Sandusky Ohio and have spoken to management and I am NOT happy with the response. Last week, my family booked a very expensive (over $500) one night stay at the resort. We returned to our suite only to find there... More
