Kalahari Resort: Sandusky Ohio Part 1

As winter sets in, the weather is getting so unbearable outside.  The kids  gets bored from just staying indoors so on our son's birthday, we decided to go to Kalahari Resort in Sandusky Ohio.  It is our  tradition on our children's birthday to take them somewhere where they can have fun and visit new places instead of having a birthday party.  We could not go on the day of his bbirthday since he have school that day so we decided to go on the weekend.  
 We woke up early on the 16th, ate breakfast and  got ready to go.  We also  made  up a tradition to take a family picture before we  leave when we  are traveling.
 We left at 7:20.  I packed some  snacks on the road because  it  is a  3-hour drive from our  hoe to Kalahari and we love to munch on something when we are on the road.
 My husband  love the new  GPS that I got him for  Christmas.  I told him that I will sell the old one because we no longer need it but he said, he will keep it on the other car.  I also got him that old one  for Christmas and for that reason, he doesn't want to get rid of it.  He is more sentimental than me.
 Seven o'clock during winter is still dark.  With so much anticipation, the long drive did not  seem  long for the kids.
 We arrived at the resort at 10.  We pre-booked our tickets prior to going there.  My husband was making a joke about their  discount because  to  buy the ticket on a regular price, it is $59 each.  Then they offer a military discount for $59 each so there's no discount really lol.  MY husband was like "I love their discounts for the veterans!"
 The slides of the indoor park  is extended to the outdoors which is kind of neat.
 Kalahari Resorts features an exciting mix of rides, slides and adventures.  The whole family will have an incredible time for sure. I would love to go back there during the summer time so we can explore the  Outdoor Adventure Park.  Other amenities includes Spa Kalahari,  Salon, and  dining options.
We chose to just go there for the day because we did not put the dogs in the kennel.
It's amazing how the ducks can survive the  freezing temperature.  They were even swimming in the freezing  water.
I love this man-made falls in the front.
I was giggling when I took this picture of my daughter because she was still wearing her boots.  She forgot to bring her flip flops.
The indoor water park was on  the ground floor.
My son was eyeing the game room  that is situated near the entrance to the pool.
Because of my knees injury, I chose not to swim.  Besides, I  could  have not go with them anyway because the locker that we rented was very small.  It didn't accommodate all our stuff.
The kids did not waste any time.  They dove in right away as soon as we  entered the  water park.
When they took off, I gave my husband the camera so he can take a picture.  When he came back, he told me an interesting story.
He said that, he was waiting at the bottom  when the kids  went on a slide so he can take a picture when they come out but when they finally came, his camera was off lol.  Figures!
He missed the exciting part but glad he took some photos  after wards.
While they were enjoying the swimming, I was busy catching up with my diary writing.  Been missing a couple of  days so it gave me time to catch up with it.  I used my Instagram entries to look back what we did on certain days but after a while, it's battery died, ugh.  I will have to  post  another one  for this adventure so tune in.

I have seen a similar place in Wisconsin and I've always wanted to go. I have been to the Great Wolf Lodge and it was just a blast. I can't wait to go to one of these places again.

Indoor water parks aren't seen very often in Florida. This is such a nice option for those up north!

Chrystal Mahan said...

How fun! I had no idea that was in Sandusky. Of course, its been years since I have been down there to visit Cedar Point. So many memories of that place!

Ann B said...

This looks like it was so much fun. My kids love to go to water parks. Indoor ones are perfect for the winter.

Cherri Megasko said...

This looks and sounds very cool. I used to live in the Detroit area, and when my kids were little we used to hit Cedar Point at least once each summer. But I never heard of this place.

Sicorra Richardson said...

What a fun way to spend the day. I have always loved indoor waterparks. You are close to Cedar Point? Do you guys go there too, in the summer I mean.

Jessica Simms said...

I've never been to a place like this before, it looks like so much fun. I will have to see if they have one of those near me so I can bring my kids.

Dogvills said...

That looks so fun. The girls wouldn't want to get out of the water if I bring them there.

Ron Leyba said...

This indoor water park looks like a lot of fun. My kids would love to stay in there too. Hopefully, we can soon!

Christa Thompson said...

This whole indoor water park think is mind blowing to me haha! I live in Florida and we went to one in Boro Norway. I was blown away, it was 20 degrees outside and my son was splashing away haha!

Hil'Lesha O'Nan said...

How fun and exciting! My family and I almost visited this resort a couple years ago, but we never got around to it. Maybe someday!

Michele D said...

I love the whole indoor water theme. It's so much fun. I haven't been to that particular one but it looks like a great place to take my family. Would love to visit there one day.

Our kids would love to go to this indoor waterpark! It's a little far for us, but we would definitely check it out if there was something like this in California.
