Rides and Attractions


Surf, Slide and Swim Your Way into Fun at Sahara Sam's!

The Congo Bongo

Meander and Relax! (Read More)

Spanning nearly the entire length of our indoor facility runs the Congo Bongo Adventure River. Chances are this river won’t appear on your GPS as we do our best to keep its existence a secret…and you’ll understand why after your first float down stream. The Congo Bongo gives our guests a chance to slow down and take in the entire park. You’ll drift under our gardened terrace and float past the tropical warming pool; just a few of many sites to see along the Congo Bongo Adventure River.

 

Children under 36″ must wear a personal flotation device and be accompanied by an adult.

The Flow Rider

NJ's ONLY Indoor Surfing Simulator! (Read More)

Our FlowRider technology creates an everlasting wave for guests to “hang ten” and surf the night away (in a shark free environment). Rain or shine, FlowRider continues to produce the ultimate wave. You can perfect your style with practice, ride the tide on your belly, or pull up a chair for prime wipeout views; you’ll always have the chance to strut your stuff on FlowRider.

 

42″ Minimum Height to Body Board   NOTE: Stand-up surfing is no longer permitted on the FlowRider®. Only belly-boarding is permitted. On non-peak hours, the FlowRider and other water attractions may run on a 30 minute rotating schedule. On weekends and school holidays, FlowRider will open at 11 am.   Minimum height= 42″ AND minimum age= 8 years old. All participants on this attraction must fill out a waiver.

Tim-Buk-Tu

An Adventure Playland! (Read More)

Taking center stage at Sahara Sam’s Oasis is Tim-Buk-Tu. Nested in the palm trees among the fountains, platforms, slides, and rides sits one of the most dynamic water attractions in the park. Tim-Buk-Tu is ready for exploration and adventure, closely resembling a tree house village one might stumble upon backpacking in the rain forest. Just when you think you’ve conquered the trials and tribulations of Tim-Buk-Tu, lookout overhead for that bucket!

 

Children 5 years and younger must be accompanied by an adult.

Snake Eyes

Our Famous Tube Slides! (Read More)

Wrapping around the outside of the building, the Snake Eyes tubes do their best to constrict the fun out of our guests with the thrill of their speed. Different from The Nile Mile, Snake Eyes requires a tube to ride on. With limited friction between the bottom of your tube and the belly of this snake, it’s anyone’s guess which way you’ll be facing when you emerge! Be sure to try them both and let us know which slide is the fastest.

 

Minimum height= 42″ to ride with an adult. Minimum height to ride alone= 48″.

Mount Kilimanjaro

The Family that Slides Together... (Read More)

Named after the volcano in Africa, our version of Mount Kilimanjaro is no longer dormant. This beast erupts with entire rafts full of our guests. This is a massive slide, with a girth wide enough to swallow an entire family! Depending on the size of your party, our rafts will hold 3-4 members at a time. If you’re here as a family, be sure to give Mount Kilimanjaro a visit. It’s always fun to tell your friends you took the kids on a trip to a volcano.

 

Minimum height= 42″to ride with an adult. Minimum height to ride with no adults= 48″.

The Nile Mile

Super Fast 350 ft. Body Slide! (Read More)

At 350 feet in length, The Nile Mile is a long enough ride for you to check your emails on the way down, but we certainly don’t recommend it! On most attractions, we would tell you to “hang on” but this is a body slide. No shirt, no shoes, no tubes, no problem! Designed for speed, this attraction is so fast we need 50 feet of runway at the end of your adventure just to slow you down! Da-Nile is no longer an excuse for you to stay home tonight; it’s become the number one reason to grab the crew and get out of the house.

 

Minimum height= 42″. Single Rider only.

Crocodile Flats

A Cargo Obstacle Course! (Read More)

How’s your balance? Try your hand at crossing the Crocodile Flats. Using the cargo ropes above, you’ll need to hang on tight if you want to navigate the flats! Can you make it from one side of the pool to the other without making a splash? Choose your path wisely; the spinning/floating/bobbing terrain under you has been known to cause some stability issues. Does this sound easy? That’s what they all say…

 

Must be a minimum of 42″ to use Crocodile Flats.

Sam's Slamdunker

Sam's Slamdunker (Read More)

It’s a whole different ball game, pun intended, when the home court is under water. Sam’s Slamdunker features multiple backboards and enough open water to get your game on in this aqua basketball emporium. Popular games include the classic “HORSE” but we prefer to play “CAMEL.” In the event of a tie game on Sam’s Slamdunker, the Life Guard on duty will choose a winner.

 

Children under 42″ must wear a personal flotation device and be accompanied by an adult.

The Lizard Lagoon

Perfect for Toddlers! (Read More)

An Oasis all its own! Don’t underestimate their size; toddlers have the ambition and curiosity of most 16 year olds (and sometimes the same attitude). The Lizard Lagoon offers our smallest generation an area to safely explore until their heart’s content. The slides and attractions in this area of the park are “fun-sized” just like the guests they were designed for. The low water depth and keen eye of our Life Guard staff make Lizard Lagoon a safe and happy adventure for our babies and tots.

 

Children under 36″ must wear a personal flotation device and be accompanied by an adult. Maximum height to ride kiddie slides = 48″ – Maximum weight to ride Baby Bungee = 35lbs.

Rip N' Roll | Outdoor Attraction

Ride the Waves! (Read More)

Imagine how nice the ocean would be if you could control the waves, remove the salt, and see the bottom. We did exactly that and named this behemoth “Rip ‘N Roll.” The Rip ‘N Roll is a wave pool and one of Sahara Sam’s newest attractions. Just how big is Rip ‘N Roll? The foot print of this inland ocean covers 12,000 square feet! Before you ask, the process to generate waves is a trade secret, sorry.

 

Children under 42″ must wear a personal flotation device. Children under 48″ must be accompanied by an adult.

Blue Lagoon Leisure Pool | Outdoor Attraction

Tradition at it's Finest! (Read More)

For years humans has looked to the sky and pondered some of life’s deepest questions. For instance “Why do I need a membership to separate facilities to enjoy both the thrill of water park attractions and the functionality of traditional leisure and lap swim areas?” Sahara Sam’s Oasis presents: The Blue Lagoon, a traditional open swim and lap lane pool. Enjoy an open swim, practice your laps, or soak up the nostalgia while you appreciate a revolutionary new concept only Sahara Sam’s Oasis could bring you: combining a leisure pool with the best water park attractions in New Jersey.

 

Children under 42″ must wear a personal flotation device. Children under 48″ must be accompanied by an adult.

Splish Splash | Outdoor Attraction

Where a Kid can be a Kid! (Read More)

Splish-Splash is the outdoor version of our Lizard Lagoon. This area of our outdoor facilities is perfect for toddlers and small children alike. Designed with safety in mind, parents will enjoy Splish-Splash for its unique setup and ability to entertain for hours. Those fluent in both the “Goo-Goo” and “Gaa-Gaa” languages will make friends quickly.

 

Children under 36″ must wear a personal flotation device and be accompanied by an adult. Maximum height to ride kiddie slide = 48″.

Sam's Lounge

You Sip, They Splash! (Read More)

Has anyone told you that you’re the best parents in the entire world? Well, you are and for that we would like to propose a toast! The Lounge is open during operational hours on Saturday and Sunday. (For weekday entertainment check out our Outdoor Tiki Bar, The Wipe Out, which operates during the Summer when the Beach Club is open.)

 

Boasting both a traditional and tropical drink menu, Sam’s Lounge also carries relaxation and peace of mind on tap. Located (strategically) just inside the entrance of our water facilities, your descendants won’t be able to slip past your line of site.   Maybe you came to watch the game, forget about work, or enjoy good company, whatever the reason is we are toasting to you: “To the best parents in the world!”

The Wipe Out!

Enjoy a Tropical Drink! (Read More)

If The Wipe Out was located anywhere else in the world, you would expect to arrive in a hollowed out canoe built by the local indigenous tribesmen. (If you actually did arrive at Sahara Sam’s Oasis in that fashion, we will still need to see some ID before we can serve you at The Wipe Out.) Exotic yet effective in both simplicity and design, The Wipe Out specializes in tropical-mixology for weary travelers and the energetic young professional. Located poolside as part of outdoor expansion, this over 21 pit stop is the perfect place to fuel up in the summer.

Sand Volleyball

Warming Tub

Let the Stress Melt Away! (Read More)

Some of the best attractions at Sahara Sam’s are the ones you stumble upon during your exploration. The warming tub is often our guests favorite “discovery.” This little slice of paradise is discretely tucked away off the banks of the Congo Bongo Adventure River. It’s the perfect place to kick back and watch the stress melt away. Don’t confuse our warming tub with a hot tub, we keep the temperature at a safe level. The warming tub is a big help for our “cold-blooded” friends who have a might hard time staying comfortable, but seriously, no reptiles allowed.   Must be at least 18 years of age or older to enter.
