Why simply slide down a waterslide when you can float through space or glide through the jungle on the country's first and only virtual reality waterslide, which is just a few hours away from Utica, New York.

Welcome to the future of waterpark attractions. The one-of-a-kind VR Waterslide in the United States is at The Kalahari Resorts & Conventions in the Pocono Mountains. There are multiple immersive experiences, that throws you into a new realm as you ride down the waterslide. Waterslides are fun… but sliding through a jungle or floating through space is a whole new level of excitement.
