We visited the kalahri on AUG 1-3. We went with our kids (boys ages 16,13 and 10) and another couple with a girl age 15 and a boy 12.
My kids loved the flowrider. The lines were about 20-30 minutes long with 80% boys and 20% girls in line. Boys seemed to like it better than girls. You also needed to be about 8 years old or you would be too light and the force of the water would push you back and your turn would be over. I'm sure there are exceptions to this-but this is a general guideline based on our experience. The stronger kids did better on this and could do more tricks.
The flowrider and master blaster were the highlights of the trip. The slides outside are fun but we spent more time indoors.
There were lots of people at the resort but my kids did not complain about long lines. This is a high energy place-its Wisconsin Dells in mid-summer. If you have older kids Kalahri water slides seem to be the best. I love Great Wolf's lobby.etc, but the slides there are not as scarry.fast.etc. It really depends on the ages of your kids which place is best for you.
I have also read that the food is not good at the resorts. We did not eat at Kalahari but the food did look expensive. There are so many places to eat closeby that it is easy not to eat resort food. Papa Johns delivered pizza. Mcdonalds, Culvers are across the street-you have options. Monks in downtown has great burgers and service.
Enjoy your time at THE DELLS. Your kids will have a ball on the slides and esp the flowrider.
