Kalahari 

Located at 7000 Kalahari Dr. Sandusky, OH, this resort is the MidWest’s largest indoor waterpark. Grab a couple of friends and buy some tickets with full-day passes starting at $94.99.  The hour and nine-minute drive from BGSU gives you time to listen to the perfect playlist.

Great Wolf Lodge

With full-day passes starting at $50 per person, this indoor water park provides a less costly alternative to your lazy river needs.  Located at 4600 Milan Rd. Sandusky, OH, the drive is an hour and six minutes from BGSU.
