This winter we had the chance to stay, swim, and play at Kalahari Resorts. It was perfect timing because it was right around Kora’s birthday so it was a fun way to celebrate. We had never been to Kalahari so we were excited because we had heard such good things from other families.
When we arrived we were immediately blown away by the size and beauty of our room. We had adjoining rooms and one had a living room, fireplace, dining room, full kitchen, full size refrigerator, whirlpool tub, and king size bed. The other room had two double beds, a mini-fridge and microwave. It was amazing and one of the nicest rooms we’ve ever stayed in.
We enjoyed the large balcony and seeing the Outdoor Waterpark and the Safari Outdoor Adventure Park too. It looks like so much fun that we can’t wait to come back this summer to check it out. At the animal park guests can assist in the car e of animals, help prepare diets, feed them, assist in cleaning, and interact with the animals too. There’s also a Sky Trail Explorer Ropes Course with three levels and 48 elements spanning 750 feet. The Zip Line Tour is for all ages and soars 60 feet in the air and there are 32 foot Adventure Climbing Walls. Doesn’t that sound fun?!
We loved the room but were excited to head down to America’s Largest Indoor Waterpark to get swimming. There was so much to do. Right off the bat Kora and Logan were excited to see how tall were and what rides they could go on and what areas they could play in.
Then it was off to swim. They’re immediate favorite was the 12,000 square foot wave pool. About every 15 minutes or so the waves would start and to hear them laugh with excitement and to see their smiles while they swam and jumped in the waves was so fun.
As part of the Kalahari Blogger Kamp Out we were treated to a demo of the FlowRider where 50,000 gallons of water flow upwards each minute creating a 5-foot ocean-like wave. It was amazing to watch the guards bodyboarding and surfing. Some family members of the bloggers even got to try it out themselves. So fun!
There were so many places to play, swim, and ride in the waterpark. There was a Basketball Pool, Crocodile Cove, the Zip Coaster, Cheetah Race, Tanzanian Twister, Swahili Swirl, Kids Safari interactive play area, a lazy river, indoor & outdoor hot tubs, and more. We also enjoyed a cabana with tv, comfortable chairs, and a place to relax between swims. The Texlon transparent roof was amazing and allowed us to enjoy the sun’s rays whenever it made an appearance.
Whenever we needed a break from swimming we spent time in the Big Game Arcade Room. It’s one of the largest arcades in Ohio. Kora & Logan were so excited to get the chance to try their hands at Savannah Strike Zone Bowling and Madagascar Black Light Mini-Golf. They also had fun playing air hockey, claw games, and Doodle Jump (which was so fun, Dave & I couldn’t resist playing too!).
We had a fantastic time at Kalahari Resorts and can’t wait to come back. While we are excited to visit this summer to check out the outdoor activities, visiting this time of year was fun and festive. We loved seeing the resort so beautifully decorated for the holidays. Kora and Logan even had a chance to see Santa and listen to a bedtime story read by Mrs. Claus.
It was a wonderful weekend and we’d recommend Kalahari Resorts to anyone looking for a wonderful family getaway and lots of fun!
