ADG Project Solutions: Design/Build Indoor Waterpark
Size: 80,000 sqft

Building on the wave of success of the Kalahari resort in the Wisconsin Dells, Kalahari wanted to design and build a second indoor waterpark for its newest location in Sandusky, OH. ADG was hired to utilize existing 80,000 sf footprint and incorporate spaces for revenue generation through retail and F&B with a practical design plan for future expansion.


ADG designed and built the original Kalahari waterpark to ensure not only a positive customer experience but future expansion needs as well. Enhanced with African theming woven throughout and innovative attractions.

ADG designed and built Kalahari Sandusky to include a series of unique ride attractions were incorporated including the world’s first indoor Double Flowrider® and the world’s only “Zip Coaster” indoor water ride.

Expanding on their original design, ADG began phase two with the f&B area, adding a mezzanine with two waterslides to maximize volume and increase capacity. Other innovative additions included ADG’s Texlon® Transparent Roofing System and a 14,000sf indoor wave pool with zero-depth beach entry and six foot waves. A second indoor double Flowrider® was also added to meet growing demand. Exciting new slide complexes, swim-up bars and cabana areas completed the updated resort. 

It takes a tremendous amount of commitment, ingenuity and funding to create an exciting waterpark and we believe consumers will continue to choose resorts that make their getaway experience an exciting event.
