The African-themed resort and water park will be located on U.S. 79 near Old Settlers Park.

“We really pride ourselves on being good neighbors to the communities that Kalahari calls home,” Kalahari Resorts and Conventions Owner Todd Nelson said. “When we design our resorts, we stay focused on adding amenities that everyone can experience and enjoy – not only our overnight guests.”

Trip Savvy lists America’s current largest indoor water park as Kalahari Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania which is around 220,000 square feet.
