We live about 5 hours away and came for a 2 night visit. I had heard that kalahari was a fun water park, but more for older kids and teens. My kids are 4 and 7. We have visited Great Wolf Lodge in the past, niagara falls location which is only an hour from us. However, we decided to give... More

I try to come here at least twice a year. I used the valet for $15 per day because I was getting over a cold and it's a long walk from the parking lot. I checked in at 7:30 pm with no wait. I was upgraded to a room with a fireplace at no cost. The room was very clean.... More

Great waterpark. Tons of rides and food, and you can find some really great deals if you look. Stay the night though for sure, much better deal.

Upon entering the pool facility my eyes instantly began burning due to the heavily chlorinated air. 5/5 family members are experiencing issues: 11 year old boy has a skin rash and burning eyes, 10 year old girl with severe skin rash/burning skin and cough/burning eyes, 3 year old daughter is vomiting, 30 year old female with eyes burning, 37 year...

I didn't have as much fun as I would have hoped. Prices were terribly high for food, drink, stores, souvenirs, etc. Our combination suite was very nice, I loved having the kitchen, fireplace and balcony. For someone that is physically handicapped, it is entirely too big of a place to get around. There are areas inaccessible unless able to use... More

The water park was great for the older kids, but the youngest had to wear a life jacket everywhere, even in the kiddy, 1 foot pool. The zip coaster is very fun! While the park is big, it's also very busy most of the time.

Been there for my son' birthday but had fun also with basketball pools, outside jacuzzi as well as getting people extra wet by poring water on the slides area. Slow raft run was nice as well.

We were there for a banquet with no children. Our room was nice, loved the door to outside, but this is a waterpark resort for kids so it was very loud in hallway with them running, yelling and carrying on.
