Sahara Sam's History
Sahara Sam's Opens to the Public
In March of 2009, Sahara Sam’s Oasis opened its doors in the community of West Berlin as New Jersey’s first free-standing, indoor water park with 58,000 square feet of aquatic and arcade attractions. Each year since its inception, Sahara Sam’s has managed to increase the value of their guest experience by making capital investments in attractions, expansions, and new programs.
The water park is owned and operated by the Girlya family. President Ilya Girlya is quick to note that the success of the water park can be attributed to its staff and the hard work of his family. The Girlya’s business is diversified in various holdings; however a strong emphasis is placed on the local development and management of entertainment venues such as Sahara Sam’s Oasis.
