Kalahari Resort in Round Rock named No. 1 indoor water park in America

Kalahari Resorts was named the best indoor water park in America. They operate several locations throughout the United States, including one right here in Round Rock.

The 1.5 million square foot Round Rock resort boasts 1,000 guest rooms, the largest indoor water park in the country, a massive indoor adventure park, several full-service restaurants, a world-class spa and over 200,000 square feet of convention space.

The water park is expanding with new outdoor attractions for even more fun! New features include a 900-foot wave action river, interactive kids play area with nine new water slides water slides and an adult swim-up bar area.

Kalahari Resorts and Conventions officially opened the doors to its 351-acre family resort in Round Rock on Nov. 12, 2020, after a little more than two years of construction and significant community outreach and engagement. Since then, the resort has celebrated a second anniversary and seen significant success, bringing thousands upon thousands of visitors to Round Rock.

Round Rock City Council passed a series of economic development agreements with Kalahari in 2018, and the resort is already surpassing initial revenue estimates. When Kalahari opened, the City anticipated the project would bring in approximately $4.7 million in annual net direct tax revenues to the City in the first ten years of operations. Revenues to the City have already come in at over $5 million for the past year — well ahead of projections!
