Indoor and outdoor Waterparks at Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio.
Indoor Waterpark Features – 173,000 square feet, America's largest indoor waterpark
Texlon Roof - The "intelligent" roof system creates a comfortable vacation environment, allowing natural light which enables real tropical foliage to grow and softens acoustic conditions. Guests can also catch a year-round tan on Kalahari's sun deck.
Wave Pool - Guests can grab a raft and be swept away by the rocking waves of this 12,000-square-foot Wave Pool.
Swahili Swirl - This behemoth bowl twirls two to four guests at a time through its 60 foot diameter bowl.
Cheetah Mat Racers - The Cheetah Chase promises to bring out the competitive side of waterpark lovers. The region's only four-lane slalom racer slides feature rolls and drops throughout its 55-foot decline.
Tanzanian Twister - Take a whirl on the Tanzanian Twister. It's a zippy trip down a zoomin' flume into a vortex that shoots out into the cool waters below. Riders can experience speeds up to 40 mph.
Rippling Rhino - At 400 feet long, this enclosed family raft slide twists and whisks outside the building and is Kalahari's longest tube ride.

FlowRider I & II - More than 150,000 guests have enjoyed Kalahari's original FlowRider. Kalahari has added a second FlowRider – a wave-in-a-box with 50,000 gallons of water flowing per minute which simulates the intensity of a five-foot wave – to continue to captivate its guests' sense of adventure.
Kids Safari - An interactive play area for children ages six and under features slides, net crawls, tunnels and interactive water toys. The feature is designed to have 100 percent visibility so parents can keep an eye on their children and easily see them from every angle.

Zip Coaster - The first Zip Coaster anywhere in the world, this "water-coaster" gives riders a feeling of weightlessness while simultaneously propelling them through 500 feet and 30 seconds of free-falls, dips and high-banking turns. It accelerates riders from zero to 20 mph through open flumes, enclosed tunnels and gushing geysers.
