Ohio's largest indoor waterpark is at Kalahari Resort Sandusky.

Kalahari has both an indoor and seasonal outdoor waterpark. The 173,000 square foot indoor park offers a large variety of water rides and attractions in a climate-controlled environment. The outdoor waterpark, open seasonally, has water activity pools, five brand-new iconic and exciting waterslides, plus a sun deck, sand volleyball, and shuffleboard courts.

Try surfing or riding a boogie board on two FlowRiders where 50,000 gallons of water flow under you ever minute creating a perfect five-foot wave. The entire family will enjoy Victoria Falls a large family water raft ride. Zimbabwe Zipper is a pipe-style flume ride where you'll reach speeds of up to 40 mph. Crocodile Cove is the park's 3,000 square-foot activity pool to explore. Kalahari also has a 13,000 square-foot wave pool with man-made surf. Time to relax?
