Our family spent two nights at Kalahari with a package deal that included breakfast each morning, pizza dinner, $40. Restaurant credit, and arcade card along with the room and waterpark access, of course. We found the entire experience to be superb. The facility is beautiful and well maintained. Upon arrival our room had a strange odor and we were quickly... More

Ok room and food weren't great and the whole place is pretty expensive BUT when you are greeted by friendly, nice, helpful, attentive staff who go out of their way to help and guide you and get you what you need while smiling genuine smiles, it makes up for a lot! Our 8 and 11 year old kids were thrilled... More

Wonderful for the entire family! We go every year and always have a blast. The only downside is how much you spend. I would suggest you do one of the room/package deals but they don't offer them on the weekends usually.

We booked an overnight Spring break package deal. The facility was outstanding. I told my husband it was like a Vegas experience (with no gambling). What I meant was that everything was larger than life and over the top (but in a fun, family friendly way). We were not out of the parking lot when our 4yr old was asking... More

We have stayed at the Sandusky, Ohio location 6 times in the past 3 years. We love The Lodge room. It has a full kitchen which is great for making quick snacks. We will continue to visit for years to come. There is always something new to enjoy every time we come. Thanks Kalahari!!

My family and I have been there many times over the years. It is a place where you can go just you and a loved one just for a romantic get away, take the kids for a major fun and bonding time or even bring a few hundred of your employees and use the HUGE convention center. With so many... More

My four children, mother, Uncle, and I had an amazing Spring Break at the Sandusky, Ohio Kalahari Resort. It had something for all ages. We stayed in a Combination Suite and it was fabulous. The entire staff, from front desk to bell hop and everyone in between, were polite and courteous. Simply Amazing!

Kalahari (Ohio) Review Start off with our do’s and don’ts: 1) DO use the “Choose your own Adventure” Package. It’s a good value when you consider what you will spend at the resort. We chose the room upgrade, arcade tokens, and pizza. 2) DO get the pizza in the waterpark. It’s the most food for the price, the kids can... More

My 3 kids, wife and I just returned from our 3 day vacation at the Kalahari resort in Ohio. The whole family had a blast in the indoor waterpark - it had plenty of things for my kids (2, 9, 11) to do! We stayed in a nomad room which overlooked the outdoor waterpark (which was not open yet). It... More
