Kalahari Resorts Opens America’s First VR Waterslide
To celebrate the fifth anniversary of National Waterpark Day, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions — home to America’s largest indoor waterparks and founder of National Waterpark Day — partnered with BallastVR to launch America’s first and only virtual reality waterslide. Riders at Kalahari Resorts in Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Texas can race down Kalahari’s thrilling Anaconda waterslide wearing Ballast’s patented VRSlide technology headsets, immersing themselves in one of three reality worlds: adventuring on an action-packed African safari, chasing aliens through outer space, or flying through castles surrounded by fire-breathing dragons.
“We wanted to do something extraordinary to celebrate the fifth-annual National Waterpark Day, and what better way than to introduce America’s first virtual reality slide?” said Cary Brandt, corporate creative director of entertainment at Kalahari Resorts and Conventions.
