If you are staying at the Kalahari, the resort offers waterpark passes valid for each day you are staying, including the day you check out. These passes also function as your room key. If you are staying at the Kalahari Resort, you do not need to purchase a water park pass to visit the water park during normal operating hours. Passes are good from 10:00am until park closes.
If you are staying off-site, you can visit the waterpark by purchasing a pass. There are different water park pass types that the Kalahari offers:
- Day Passes: Passes to visit and use the attractions (slides, hot tubs, and other attractions) at the Kalahari Waterpark during their normal business hours.
- Spectator Passes: Passes to visit the water park but not use any attractions: rides, pools, hot tubs, etc. This is recommended for cosplayers who aren’t going on rides. Spectator passes are only available at the Kalahari Waterpark desk and are $29.99 per day. These can only be purchased at the waterpark front desk, and are available on a limited basis.
We strongly encourage you to purchase your passes online to guarantee admission. Sales at the gate may be closed off due to capacity. Colossalcon does not sell waterpark passes online. If you wish to purchase them online prior to the convention, you must do so through the Kalahari Website: Purchase Online
