Family Fun at Kalahari Resorts

By  | Last Updated:  

My boys and I love a good adventure. Whether it’s eating some place new, trying a new activity or traveling, we are always ready for fun! I’m regularly impressed by their attitudes towards trying something new. Even if they’re nervous, we shout “do it afraid” and forge ahead. The “do it afraid” philosophy has created some powerful and wonderful memories for the four of us. There is nothing like the rush of trying something new.

Kalahari Water Park

One of my favorite adventures we’ve done together is Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky, Ohio. My boys have a bit of an age gap: they’re 13, 6 and 5. So finding something that all four of us will enjoy at the same time can be a challenge. This is never the case when we visit Kalahari.

From a comfortable room to yummy food to the water park to the arcade — there is no shortage of fun to be had by each of my young men.

They don’t know it yet, but we’ll be heading back to Kalahari soon. I found out last winter that a trip to Kalahari is the absolute best way to fight the winter blues. We spent a weekend giggling our way through the water park and arcade and it was oh so good for my soul. I’m excited to repeat the experience with them in a few weeks!

Storm Chaser Ride at Kalahari

I know they will love trying the new Storm Chaser ride. It’s an indoor waterslide that offers an interactive video game experience. It’s a one of kind experience that offers friendly competition and family fun by combining gaming, speed and skill for a whole new kind of ride!

The Storm Chaser features a targeted gaming system where riders use a controller to play as they ride a slide board down the waterslide run. The object of the game is to hit targets to collect points, while maintaining your speed. The super smart gaming system uses cutting edge motion tracking to track progress, speed and skill so riders can compete against each other in a quest for the highest score.

New Kalahari Sandusky Water Ride
