The Pocono Mountains will now be known for having the largest indoor waterpark in the country! After their grand opening in July 2015, Kalahari Resorts & Conventions has quickly doubled in size and reputation.
With the completion of their most recent project on March 15, 2017, Kalahari Resorts & Conventions now boasts a 220,000 square-foot waterpark, nearly 1,000 guest rooms, three new restaurants, and the second free-roam, multi-player virtual reality gaming experience in America.
We mentioned it’s the United States' largest indoor waterpark, right? Truly doubling in size, Kalahari has added a wave pool, a second indoor/outdoor whirlpool spa, eight water slides, a Lazy River expansion, Cabana Island, Grotto swim-up bar, and kids play area, Coral Cove. With a whole new waterpark added inside the existing park, you’ll wonder where to start. Watch our Instagram story below for a walk-through of the new expansion!
Kalahari’s additional 520 guest rooms and suites now bring the on-site room total to 977. Three and five bedroom suites are also available. The new Big Five Suite features five bedrooms; one master bedroom with a king-size bed and master bath, and four bedrooms with two queen-size beds and their own baths. The suite sleeps up to 22 people, and features a fully-functional kitchen, living room with fireplace, dining table, pool table, nine flat screen TVs, large balcony, clothes washer and dryer, and free high speed Internet.
Kalahari Resorts & Conventions has also added three new dining experiences. The Marrakesh Market expanded to incorporate all things from food to clothing and wine to coffee. The Double Cut Charcoal Grill/Liquor Bar presents a premium steakhouse that is popular at their Wisconsin Dells, WI location. Sortino’s Italian Kitchen is brand new to Kalahari, and offers authentic Italian cuisine native to Sicily.
As if the expanded waterpark wasn’t enough, The Arena takes thrill-seeking to a whole new level. Only the second location in the United States, The Arena introduces a free-roaming, open air virtual reality experience. You are immersed into another reality where your body is the controller, and you navigate throughout the game. Challenge up to six friends and family in a warehouse-scale environment that feels more like reality than a game; you must be 13 or older to play.
