Sahara Sam's History


SAMAZON Ropes Course

In October of 2010, Sahara Sam’s Oasis opened SAMAZON, a four story tall ropes course, (at the time) the tallest in the world – the ropes course was later removed.


The SAMBULANCE Educational Safety Program was launched. This program is provided by the SAMBULANCE Safety Squad, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, primarily supported financially by Sahara Sam’s Oasis. The program’s mission is to foster the independence of individuals with special needs through educational programming and safety alliances. The Squad travels to special needs schools and organizations to offer complimentary, hands-on programming designed to educate individuals about first responders, 9-1-1 emergencies and basic first aid.

Aquatic Safety Recognition

Sahara Sam’s Oasis was awarded the prestigious Silver International Aquatic Safety Award by Jeff Ellis & Associates, Inc., International Aquatic Safety & Risk Management Consultants.

Special Needs Nights

Sahara Sam’s Oasis continues to grow both economically and as a beacon of community involvement. The introduction of S.E.A.S. evenings, also known as “Special Needs Events at Sam’s” gives families and individuals with special needs the opportunity to share in a pleasant, judgment-free experience at the water park. The events include limited ticket sales to restrict crowding, modified lighting and sounds, quiet rooms, extra seating, and the ability for families to network and make new friends.

The Beach Club Expansion

Sahara Sam’s announced its next expansion project and construction began on a 2-acre, $6.5 million dollar outdoor facility. This latest expansion includes a 25 meter leisure pool, a children’s splash park, full service bar, sand volleyball courts, and a 12,000 square foot wave pool. In conjunction with the outdoor facilities, the park also added another tube slide: The Nile Mile. At 350 feet, this super-fast body slide starts inside the building and snakes around the exterior, eventually reemerging with 50 feet of runway for the guest. The project also includes an 8,000 square foot addition to the current building and features new kitchen facilities, additional restrooms, and expanded party facilities.

Outdoor Water Park Opens

Construction of the outdoor Beach Club Expansion project was completed in May of 2013.
