West Berlin, N.J. – Sahara Sam’s Oasis indoor and outdoor water park is set to break ground on a 10,000-square-foot expansion to the indoor year-round section of the complex. The four million dollar expansion is the New Jersey-based water park’s second major capital growth project in two years and is expected to open in six months.
The new section of Sahara Sam’s will be connected to the existing 70,000-square-foot indoor water park and include two additional water slides as well as a family leisure pool.
The slides are head-first, mat racers manufactured by Proslide Technology Inc. and will allow guests to race one another down 300-foot-long courses, dispatching from an enclosed 4 story indoor tower. This pair of colorful Twister slides will be the first of their kind in New Jersey and will be visible to travelers on Route 73, where the park is located.
The other part of the addition, the family pool, will provide guests a place to lounge and swim recreationally. The entire expansion, designed by Aquatic Development Group, will be included with the park’s general admission ticket and accessible to annual pass holders at no additional cost.
“We are really looking forward to breaking ground on this expansion,” said Ilya Girlya, CEO of Sahara Sam’s. “As a leading entertainment destination, it’s paramount that we continue to build upon the experience we provide our guests. The addition of two high speed slides and a new integrated family pool is exciting for our visitors and ensures every visit to Sahara Sam’s is a new experience.”
The latest expansion is the park’s first since joining Apex Parks Group and is tentatively scheduled to open May of 2016. Similarly, three years ago Sahara Sam’s announced the addition of a two acre outdoor expansion. The Beach Club opened Memorial Day weekend in 2013 and includes a leisure pool, wave pool, child’s splash area, tiki bar, cabanas and volleyball court.
Guests who want to enjoy the newest expansion of the park during its May 2016 debut can take advantage of discounted memberships and any day tickets during the Sahara Sam’s 24-hour sale on Friday, November 27th.
