Kalahari to open America's largest indoor water park

A new US$550m (€509m, £426m) African-themed water park and resort from Kalahari Resorts & Conventions is due to open in Round Rock, Texas, in November 2020.

With 1.5 million sq ft (457,000sq m) of resort space, Kalahari said the resort would be its largest yet, and would also be America's largest indoor water park, at 223,000sq ft (68,000sq m).

Facilities at the venue will include Tom Foolery's Adventure Park – an 80,000sq ft (24,000sq m) site with thrill rides, ropes course, climbing walls, indoor zipline, bowling, laser tag and mini-golf – an arcade with more than 250 games, three outdoor pools spanning three acres and 50,000sq ft (15,000sq m) of outdoor event space.

The resort will offer almost a thousand guest rooms and suites, a 200,000sq ft (61,000sq m) convention centre, a salon and spa, and extensive retail and food and beverage options, from full service restaurants to quick bites.

Kalahari Resorts & Conventions operates three African-themed resorts in the US: Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin; Sandusky, Ohio; and the Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania. Pocono Mountains is currently the largest indoor waterpark in the US, at 220,000sq ft (67,000sq m).

The company said further information about the Round Rock location will be released at the end of March 2020.
