Review: Sahara Sam’s Oasis Indoor Water Park

Sahara Sam’s Oasis Indoor Water Park and entertainment complex, open year round, is located in Berlin, NJ. It is approximately 30 mins outside of Center City Philadelphia and features a wide array of exhilarating, state-of-the-art water rides and attractions, interactive games, and great ticket and party packages! This will entertain the whole family no matter what the weather. Sahara Sam’s remains a warm 84 degrees of low humidity weather all year long thanks to a state-of-the-art temperature control system.

There’s nearly 58,000 square feet of water rides, interactive games, dining, party rooms and much more. Check out the description of these rides for the whole family no matter what age:

  • SNAKE EYES: Challenge your friends on New Jersey’s fastest indoor speed slides. Snake Eyes are two eight-foot wide slide barrels that twist and turn as you roar toward a splash landing at the finish line.
  • MOUNT KILIMANJARO: Go to new heights! At 45 feet above ground, this winding 390 foot family raft ride churns it up with white water rapids and the open sea.
  • FLOW RIDER: Surf’s up! Think you’ve got what it takes to be the Big Kahuna? Test your surfing or boogie board skills on New Jersey’s first surfing machine, the hugely popular FlowRider.
  • CONGO BONGO ADVENTURE RIVER RIDE: This is no lazy river ride. The Congo Bongo rafting trip is full of surprises as water geysers, swirling vortexes and water cannons challenge you at every turn.
  • CROCODILE FLATS: Swing, crawl or leap – just don’t fall to the crocs waiting below while climbing through this intricate web of ropes and cargo nets suspended high above Sahara Sam’s rainforest lagoon.
  • TIM-BUK-TU TREE FORT: A giant tree fortress complete with water cannons, slides, sprays and a 1,000-gallon tipping bucket.
  • SAM’S SLAM DUNKER: Take the ball to the rim and literally dunk it home on this water basketball court.
  • THE LIZARD LAGOON: A special for area just for the little adventurers, featuring a zero-depth pool entry and mini slides and water geysers. The Lizard Lagoon also has a baby bungee swing specially designed for toddlers.
A very cool feature available at Sahara Sam’s is its one-of-a-kind retractable roof, which opens up to let the outdoors in on sunny days.

If you need a break from the water you can visit Sammy’s Trading Post. Everyone has the chance to win a cool prize at this 3,000 square foot arcade featuring the latest video, simulator and redemption games.

    I have never been here before, so i don't have a favorite. I like the idea of a regulated temp in the cooled seasons. Makes water fun great year round.

    Indoor Water Parks are the perfect mini vacation for my family! Not only are my kids obsessed with water parks, but they’ve also been disappointed numerous times by cancellations due to bad weather for planned trips. That’s why we plan day trips as well as weekend trips to this AMAZING indoor water park! Now we all count down the days until we go and never have to worry about rain! I couldn’t recommend them more!

    Sahara Sam’s Oasis is an EXCELLENT place for anyone!!

    As a Father with a large family and small children, we all really enjoyed our time at Sahara Sam’s. Everything was perfect – the rides/attractions, the people/management/staff, the safety was perfect and so was the food. I will definitely come again with my family, and I highly recommend to anyone — such a friendly and fun place!!
