7000 Kalahari Drive Sandusky, Ohio
Take a break from the ice and snow and break out your bathing suit. DYS is taking a trip to the premier waterpark in northwest Ohio, Kalahari! Bring your family and enjoy a great mix of fun water rides, slides, and adventures with other type 1 families. It will be an incredible time for the whole family and Kalahari offers an array of attractions for children of all ages! Just this November Kalahari opened up a new virtual waterslide “Storm Chaser” that will define water parks for the future to come. Storm Chaser integrates gaming, skill, speed, and competitive sports into the experience of a lifetime and appeals to a verity of age groups. DYS has also rented a private whirlpool cabana for our families to enjoy inside the waterpark. Mark your calendars for February 2, 2018 and be ready to have tons of fun!
