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....

This is a great family oriented place for fun in the water and arcade. The children in our group had a wonderful time and enjoyed all the festivities. The suites were clean and big enough to host a birthday party with 7 children under the age of 5 and the food was reasonably priced. I would recommend this waterpark over...

It was nice to be greeted by ducks at Kalahari on my birthday! They are scheduled to expand their outdoor waterpark this summer 2017! Overall, this was a fun a trip! If you are looking for a secluded getaway, this isn't for you. People come here from all ages with families and children from different cities. The lobby gets a...

We came to Kalahari for a Gymnastics Meet. Our gym went 2 years ago and we heard not the best reports from other parents who went. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice and well maintained the facility was. It was very clean and the staff was extremely friendly! It is a huge place and our room was at the...

My kids have been talking about going to Kalahari for years. We had the opportunity to go this week and were completely disappointed. The rooms are VERY pricey, and even though it does include the water park, its still high. I probably wouldnt have even complained about the price of the room if we didnt have such a terrible experience...

I am very disappointed as well to read about your recent experience at our Resort. I apologize for loud neighbors you had that disturbed your sleep. We do offer many packages that include food credits & some of our restaurants offer great deals like a 99 cent kids menu or 2 for $25. We are the host venue for events...
