The Park itself is amazing. There’s a huge wave pool, slides and so much more to do. The problem is that it is freezing. Especially when you come in and stay near the activities at the entrance. There needs to be a blast of heat...More

We usually spend out long weekend getaways at Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky. We decided to try Kalahari. We won't be coming back. During the busy check out time when we arrived to start using the water park, they had 3 employees at the front...More
