Round Rock – A huge African-themed resort and water park is coming to Texas. The Kalahari Resorts & Conventions has announced it's opening a theme park in Round Rock.
According to the company’s website, the Round Rock resort will have an indoor and outdoor water park, a hotel and convention center, an arcade, a salon, restaurants, and shopping.
The resort is slated to have about 1,000 guest rooms and suites, and 150,000 to 200,000 square feet of meeting space. The water park itself is about 200,000 square feet.
The Kalahari resort will be located on U.S. 79 across from the Dell Diamond and Old Settlers Park.

The city of Round Rock’s website says the resort will open no later than December 2021, but the Kalahari website says they expect to open the property in 2020.
Round Rock will be the fourth Kalahari Resorts location. The other three are in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin; Sandusky, Ohio; and Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania.
