Maui Sands Indoor Waterpark Resort announces that the opening of the Sandusky Hawaiian-themed indoor waterpark resort is scheduled for April 15th, 2008.

Say "Aloha" to the Midwest's newest attraction - Maui Sands Indoor Waterpark Resort. This year-round Hawaiian-themed indoor waterpark in Ohio will bring a slice of Hawaii to the shores of Lake Erie when it opens April 15th, 2008 in Sandusky, Ohio. With 306 guest suites in three hotels, 55,000 square feet of tubes and waves with real-life surfing, Maui Sands Resort will be Ohio's second largest indoor waterpark.

Visitors should prepare; Maui Sands Indoor Waterpark Resort -- -- boasts unique features that cannot be seen at any other Sandusky indoor waterpark. This 55,000-square-foot water playground features more than 10 state-of-the-art water attractions, including daredevil slides, adventurous activity pools and attractions for kids ages two to 92.

This Sandusky indoor waterpark prides itself on offering guests innovative and exciting attractions like the SurfRider® and CannonBowl™. The SurfRider® is North America's first and only real-life deep-water surf machine. Unlike anything experienced before, riders can ride a boogie board or real finned surfboard on a continuous two-foot wave with a landing cushion of four feet of water. But a waterpark wouldn't be fit without a mind-blowing waterslide like the CannonBowl™. Riders slide down a steep, dark tunnel into a huge bowl, where they take several circular spins before plunging through a corkscrew chute into the lazy river below.
