None of the reviews I found seemed to say anything about the rooms in the Lodge - comfort, cleanliness, ets. Also, the website is not real clear - is the waterpark in the MountainGrand Lodge? Don't care to walk outside with a bunch of young children to get from our room to the waterpark.

Hi, does Avalanche Bay compare in any way to Kalahari Resort in Sandusky? I'm looking to take the kids to a indoor water park for Spring break in April, but I hate the steep Kalahari prices. If you have been to both please help! Thanks
