Kalahari Resorts and Conventions in Ohio has introduced the next generation of waterslides with a new interactive gaming experience: Storm Chaser.

This slideboarding adventure combines the thrill of a waterslide with the challenge of a multi-level video game. The new attraction integrates gaming, skill, speed and competition into an experience that will define waterparks of the future.

“Storm Chaser builds on the thrills of waterpark fun and adds in high-tech gaming in the way people want to play today,” said Thatcher Robertson, director of waterparks at Kalahari Resorts.

“We’ve combined the exhilaration of an indoor waterslide with the fun of your favourite video game for a revolutionary new experience.”

The Storm Chaser features a targeted gaming system where riders use a controller to play as they ride a slideboard down the waterslide run. The object of the game is to hit targets to collect points, while maintaining your speed.

The unique tracking system lets riders build points throughout the day to unlock new levels and compete for the highest overall score.

The Storm Chaser joins several new attractions unveiled this year at Kalahari Resorts and Conventions, Ohio’s largest indoor waterpark, in Sandusky.

The resort also recently opened five new slides in the seasonal outdoor waterpark and added halotherapy treatments at Spa Kalahari and Salon.
