Sahara Sam’s Oasis Indoor and Outdoor Waterpark is the place to go for a day of fun for the entire family. Located in West Berlin, New Jersey, Sahara Sam’s is just an hour’s drive from Chester County.
Sahara Sam’s originally opened as an indoor water park that could entertain the entire family throughout the year, no matter the temperature. Four years later, Sahara Sam’s has added a $5 million dollar, 2 acre outdoor water park to their oasis! Yes, Sahara Sam’s is huge!! A family can easily enjoy an entire day here. There’s even a 3,000 sq. ft. state of the art arcade for parents and kids to enjoy!
Taking center stage as the largest indoor attraction is The Tim-Buk-Tu Adventure Playground. My older kids really enjoyed the Crocodile Flats Obstacle Course and were so careful not to fall in. Flowrider is New Jersey’s only indoor surfing simulator! Riders must be 8 years of age and parents must sign awaiver. Relax, grab a tube and float down Sahara Sam’s Congo Bongo. Speaking of relaxing, adults 18 years of age and older can kick back and enjoy the Warming Tub. Lizard Lagoon Toddler Play Zone had just about everything for toddlers and was thoroughly enjoyed by my little ones. There were vigilant and well-trained lifeguards throughout the facility. No matter what the temperature is outside, the Sahara Sam’s Indoor water park remains a warm 84 degrees of low humidity thanks to their state-of-the-art temperature control system.
Did I mention slides? Check these out! The Nile Mile is a 350 ft. super fast body slide. This slide is slick!! Start from the top and arrive at the bottom in just 18 seconds! Snake Eyes is another fun water slide and requires a tube to ride on. Family raft slides are the best! Pile 3 to 4 of your friends or family onto one large raft and slide down the Mount Kilimanjaro slide. Most slides require kids to be 42″ or taller. The slides are part of the indoor water park and are open year round.
The newly opened outdoor water park is AWESOME!! Splish Splash is full of sprinklers and has a small water slide, perfect for toddlers and small children. The Samazon Ropes Adventure is the world’s largest rope course standing at 4 stories tall! However, my kids couldn’t do it because we didn’t know the rope course required sneakers. The 12,000 square foot Rip ‘N Roll wave pool is where my family spent most of our day. I took an insane amount of adorable pictures of my kids splashing around and jumping the waves in the wave pool. There’s also a 25-meter lap pool. The outdoor water park is open May through September.
What I suggest bringing to Sahara Sams:
- Pack a lunch and snacks to leave in your car. Or plan to leave and eat at one of the many restaurants in the area. Sahara Sam’s means it when they say no outside food or beverages.
- Sneakers for Samazon Ropes Adventure
- Print and fill out the waivers for Samazon Ropes Adventure and Flowrider Attractions.
