Kalahari Pocono Mountains

Editors' Choice – Phase two of the resort has been built and Kalahari Resort in the Poconos Mountains is now America's Largest Indoor Waterpark. What was already big, got huge…doubling the size of the resort.

Kalahari Resort in the Pocono Mountains has nearly 1,000 guest rooms and suites of up to five bedrooms, each appointed with authentic African-themes. All rooms feature family-friendly conveniences like a microwave and refrigerator. This full service resort has an innovative indoor water park, family entertainment center, spa, three full-service signature restaurants, 6,000 square feet of retail space, a fitness and training center, plus 100,000 square feet of convention and meeting spaces.

The now 220,000 square-foot (was 100,000 sq. ft.) indoor waterpark features a retractable roof for warmer months and is climate-controlled, year-round, allowing for water fun regardless of the weather outside. Waterpark attractions include stand-up surfing or body boarding on the FlowRider, twists, turns, ups and downs while riding the Anaconda water coaster, the Rippling Rhino an almost 400-foot long tube slide, a lazy river you can float and both indoor and outdoor family hot tubs. Another exciting ride is the Wild Wildebeest multi-rider tube ride that descends a dark tunnel to generate enough speed to climb a near-vertical wall or "wave" where riders experience the floating sensation of negative G-forces

The outdoor waterpark at Kalhari Pocono Mountains features a huge pool, large sundeck, whirlpool, swim-up bar and a recently expanded lineup of waterslides and attractions.

Kalahari Resort also has a 30,000 square-foot family entertainment center with mini-bowling, arcade games, 5D theater and black light miniature-golf.
