Amazing waterpark with tons of stuff to do for all ages. Big rides for kids and adults and special kiddie pool with toys and swings for the little kids. Has an arcade and beautiful rooms. Great weekend getaway.

Me, my friend and her 7 year old son traveled together and split the cost of our room. On arrival around noon (so we could play in the water park until our room was ready) we went through the check in process. I found it to be highly inefficient that we had to return to the check in desk at...

We spent a weekend here for a cheer competition. 1st thing was they received snow in the area and side walks were not treated and slick. One of my friends actually slipped and fell on the ice. Then came issues with check in. The card system went down. I checked in and paid, was advised we were welcome to enjoy...

Clean, family friendly place. Lots to do for all ages. Staff is wonderful and super helpful. My only complaint would be price. They have "flexible rates" for their rooms which I am not a fan of. If I call to get information to possibly plan a trip and then call back a day later to book, the price could be...

We stayed for two days at the Sandusky Ohio resort. I had a conference on the second day. Check in was quick and streamlined. Our room was nice with very comfortable beds. Food in the resort was quite good (we ate at the Grill in the pool area, the deli in the arcade, and the coffee shop in the lobby)...

We love Kalahari, the staff, the food (a little overpriced , but what resort isn't) the water park, the outdoor park was awesome. The zip line was a very long wait, but I'm sure after some new training things could speed up! See you guys soon!

No problems whatsoever, everyone had tons of fun. First and second day/night there weren't a lot of people but the last day was insane. Of course it being a holiday was the reason for it but 45 mins for one slide?! Anyway, the chlorine was brutal our littlest one getting a chlorine rash, something after going to tons of pools...

Look for discount rooms on site at Kalahari and got a good rate for 2 night stay. Love the water park for a nice getaway on cold winter days. Food is over price so take some with you if your spending the night. Plus places to drive to to eat out at a better price. No food in water park....
