Resort in Wisconsin Dells Begins Construction on New, Innovative Indoor Waterpark Features

Wisconsin Dells, Wis. (Sept. 16, 2011) – Just in time for this holiday season, Kalahari Resorts, the premier vacation destination in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin has started a multi-million dollar waterpark renovation project with a new slide structure rising above the existing roof as well as a new African-themed children’s water play feature.

Officially opening in December, three new high impact, high thrill waterslides, including the first two indoor Super Loops in the world; will see guests propelled at speeds up to 25 mph. All three slides will present a near 60 foot drop, and the Super Loop slides will take guests on a 250-plus foot journey from high above the roof of the waterpark to the water below. The slides are so tall that Kalahari is literally raising part of its roof to accommodate the slide tower. This will allow guests and other passersby a chance to see the slides from the highway as they drive past the resort.

“At Kalahari we are always on the lookout for innovative slides and attractions that will give our guests an experience they’ve never had before,” said Travis Nelson, Chief Slide Tester at Kalahari Resorts. “These three new slides will give guests the thrill of their life! Guests will start the ride standing up in a tube before sliding through a “trap-door” and down a near vertical drop for a truly hair raising experience.”

For those not quite old enough to experience the thrill of the Super Loop, Kalahari is also installing a state-of-the-art Kid’s Play Zone for children of all ages. The pool will contain at least 15 children’s slides as well as a number of interactive African animal figures including Grey Crowned Cranes that will act as big squirt guns, elephants and an interactive Baobab rain tree that will gush water like rain.

Kalahari Resorts has built a reputation as one of the most exciting indoor and outdoor waterpark vacation destinations in the country by being the first to adopt and integrate new technology and innovative rides. The family of resorts was the first in the Midwest to host the Master Blaster water roller coaster and the FlowRider surfing attraction indoors. It also hosts the world’s largest behemoth bowl and America’s largest indoor waterpark.

Guests who are interested in being one of the first to experience the updated indoor waterpark can make reservations for this winter and find out more by visiting http://www.kalahariresorts.com.
