It's a small waterpark, but we found last year that when we went to go and it was sold out, we spent a lot more than $15 per person to get into Kalahari :-D
I don't know that there's a better example of 'you get what you pay for' than Kalahari.
100% - I love that place, but Castaway has its purpose, too. When it’s the frozen tundra outside and you just want to get warm, it’s an inexpensive option.
Sometimes I don’t want all of the activity that kalahari has with it
It costs me $15 to get in Castaway Bay and I don't remember what Kalahari was. Maybe I'll check it out sometime but since I spend most of my time in the hot tub area and we only do half a day at waterparks anyway I'll stick with the $15 park for now. I'm sure I'm getting what I pay for but what I'm paying for is really all I need for the most part.
It was $88 per person last time we went to Kalahari, plus $10 for a locker when we decided we wanted to slides and not worry about our stuff on a chair, and about $12 a drink, per person (plus tip).
Then, we ate dinner at the restaurant there, so it's an expensive day, but it's worth it to feel like you're on vacation.
When staying overnight, waterpark access is paid for by way of an additional $30/person/day "resort fee".
We've done a few multi-night stays there over the years, and always had a good time. As Josh said it's not inexpensive, but it's a relatively inexpensive way to get a resort-feel vacation.
For the past 3 years I have taken advantage of Kalahari’s BF sale with $35 tickets. Good Sun-Fri with some blackout dates, like Xmas and spring break. This year I decided to take a break however so not sure if they still run it.
