Akaonekana pili Kalahari

The Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio was another great waterpark, although the good rides require multiple people. I wasn't traveling alone this time, so I was able to do them. Like their property in Wisconsin, it has an African theme.

The water slides are indoors, although there is a small selection of pools outdoors. The Kalahari resort offers plenty of other things to do as well.

The water rides include:

Flowrider - didn't do this, but it's a body-boarding simulator.

Victoria Falls - A large, 2-3 person raft ride, moves pretty fast.

Zip Coaster - a water coaster, but it was surprisingly dry compared to other water coasters, especially if you're sitting in the back.

Tanzanian Twister - a body slide that spins you in a bowl and drops you into 9 feet of water. I skipped this one, it looked too scary.

Rippling Rhino - A tame 2-4 person raft slide.

Elephant's Trunk/Wild Wildebeest - A fast one person tube slide. Very fun.

Zig Zag Zebra/Zimbabwe Zipper - Body slides - despite the slide not exiting into a full exit pool, the water at the end was still very deep and got up my nose.

Swahili Swirl - A 2-4 person bowl slide, probably the best ride in the park.

Cheetah Race - a mat racing slide, a bit smaller than mat racing slides at other water parks, but still fun.

The water park was a bit crowded, but I was there on a weekend.

Food: Plenty of food around the water park, including full-service restaurants, sweet shops, and typical water park food.

Transportation: If you're staying at the hotel, you can fly into Cleveland, OH (CLE) and the hotel will provide a shuttle, but otherwise you'll have to drive.

Overall: A good water park but it may not be as enjoyable on your own.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
