Go during the week for better prices and less lines. Much worth the money. Same prices as Great Wolf but more attractions. Rooms are clean with nice views. Staff for the most part are friendly. They are sticklers for the height requirements so read the signs for the kids.

This is the best place to let your kids go crazy with fun. There is so much for them to do. The best part for parents is that the kids are all tuckered out by bedtime. We will definitely be back. Great vacation!

Nice hotel but if you go in winter time to use the waterpark when not fully occupied, parts of the waterpark are always closed. We just got home from a three day trip there in Feb 2016 and 4 of the 6 slides were always closed. They would only open 2 up at a time. The 2 body slides and... More

We were here for a night last week - 2 adults and 3 kids. We got a great deal because it was a slower time and the waterpark wasn't very busy at all. This was great as far as rides, as there was rarely a lineup. But... there were about 5 slides that were closed in one corner and when... More

It is a really nice facility. The waterpark has terrific slides, a water coaster, lazy river, hot tubs that go from inside to outside, etc. Also had fun at the arcade playing laser tag, mini golf, mini bowling, and traditional arcade games. The XD dark theatre Zombie hunting movie was a riot--I highly recommend. Zulu café inside the water park... More

The "Choose Your Own Adventure" package is one of our most popular packages, because as the name suggests you can choose what "adventures" you want I agree with you, the XD Dark theater Zombie hunting movie is a blast, so much fun! Thank you for choosing Kalahari & taking the time to review us! More

Kalahari was wonderful! I recommend going if you're looking for a quick weekend away. Whether you have kids or not. Erdis was extremely helpful during our stay. I will definitely be returning! The swim up bar was my favorite. Relaxing with a cold beverage.

Kalahari is simply the best place to be with children if you have to spend winter in Ohio. We have stayed 3 times and always enjoy our time. It is a little pricey, but they also run good deals if you watch for them. Plus, what else are you gonna do in Ohio if you're like me and hate the... More
