Conde Nast praises Kalahari water park


SANDUSKY — Sandusky’s massive Kalahari Resorts and Conventions was named one of the world’s coolest indoor water parks by Conde Nast Traveler.

The travel magazine lauded the resort for its “African motif and a roof system that allows for year-round natural light.” Also worthy of mention: The resort’s 173,000 square feet of super-soaked fun, as well as 215,000 square feet of convention center space (“because the corporate team that works together, waterslides together,” according to the magazine).

Other water parks that made the magazine’s list: Avalanche Bay, Michigan’s largest indoor water park at Boyne Mountain resort near Gaylord, Mich., and World Waterpark in Edmonton, Alberta.

Kalahari also was included on’s recent list of “10 Amazing Indoor Water Parks Around the World.”
