Sahara Sam’s Oasis Indoor & Outdoor Water Park

Sahara Sam’s Oasis is an Indoor and Outdoor Water Park in West Berlin, NJ. The Park was founded in 200. The park offers families affordable, high value entertainment for the entire year with 58 of its 68-thousand square foot retractable roof system.

If you think this is a place just for kids then you have it all wrong. This is a great place for the whole family and a place for you to act just like a child again.

Here are just a few of the key spots:

New Outdoor Attractions

The new outdoor park is awesome. The outdoor attractions are open all summer until September.

Rip ‘N Roll

This 12,000 square foot wave pool could easily be my new favorite way to hit the waves. It is like you are at te ocean.

Splish Splash

Splish Splash is a kids dream playground. If mermaids and pirates invented a place for their little tykes to splash, squeal, and giggle, this would be it. It’s great for toddlers and small children. The unique setup will entertain you and your kids for hours.

Blue Lagoon

This is where Sahara Sam’s went above and beyond with creating a truly epic experience for it’s visitors. The Blue Lagoon is a crystal clear open swim and lap swimming pool. Now you don’t have to choose between taking your kids (or yourself!) to the theme park and getting your exercise in, Sahara Sam’s Oasis Indoor Outdoor Water Park let’s you have both!

The Wipeout Tiki Bar

If you’re an adult who likes to play like a kid, you’ll love that you can take your mid-day break from the waves in this beach oasis.

Year-Round Indoor Attractions

The new outdoor attractions are a blast, but the indoor waterslides, surfing simulator, and innertube rides are equally fun. Here are some of my favorites.

The Mile Nile

You’ll love your wild ride through this speedy 350-foot waterslide. This ride is the thrill of a lifetime!

The Flow Rider

Don’t miss your chance to ride New Jersey’s one and only indoor surf simulator!

Snake Eyes

Grab a tube for this raging ride through the tropical belly of a snake!

You’ll love your visit to Sahara Sam’s Oasis Indoor Outdoor Water Park whether you have kids, are with a group of adult friends.

They truly have fun for all ages, all skill levels, and rides to enjoy even on days with bad weather.

The holidays are here and you are going to be attending alot of holiday parties and events to attend. Now comes the big question, what should you get as a hostess gift? All of the things that go into this decision is whether you are close to the host, is it a friend of a friend, or is a work person. These things can make your mind spin with what is the perfect gift.

Glade Gives you the Gift of Feelings for the Holiday Season

On November 17, 2014, I was invited to attend the opening of the first Glade Boutique. This store opened in New York City and will be there through the holiday season. This one of a kind Pop-Up Boutique is here just in time for the holidays and it was a night of great fun and surprises.

The boutique features a multi-sensory, immersive, and interactive experience for shoppers-including a journey through five spaces all inspired and infused with fragrance. These rooms will knock you off you feet, when you step inside, you will feel like you have been transported into another land.

The idea behind this is one that is simple but one that we don’t think about with our busy lives. How does the power of scent make us feel and how it affects our mood?

The space was created collaboration with designer Pamela Dennis and noted interior and architectural designer Stephanie Goto. Both designers played role in designing the boutique and visitors can see how the interior space reflects the inspiration and emotion they drew from the Glade scents.

When you first enter the boutique, you are greeted by a Concierge to help guide your scent and emotional journey. You have these great sofas where you can just sit and relax from the hustle and bustle of the city and the holidays.

The boutique features five amazing and stunning rooms that bring to life the Glade scents that we have come to love.

Relaxation which was inspired by Hawaiian Breeze is a walk through a larger than life conch shell where a warm breeze blows through the air and an orange glow warms the skin. As sounds of the ocean waves relax the mind, when you come out the other side to experience a beautiful sunset.

Flirty inspired by Blooming Peony and Cherry. This allows you to participate in a personal high fashion photo shoot y stepping into a one of the the kind gown created by celebrity designer Pamela Dennis.

Energized inspired by Red Honeysuckle Nectar. Enter a sleek, minimally futuristic space featurin four Oculus Rift stations (3D virutal reality) where a custom trill ride ends in a field of Red Honeysuckle Nectar and leaves you feeling energized.

You should are asked to share your experiences via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #FeelGlade.

I leave one surprise for you check out the wall of 1.500 candles and see what is hidden there.

The Boutique is located at 408 West 14th Street in New York’s meatpacking district and will be open from November 16th through December 23rd, Monday-Friday (11:00am-8:00pm), Saturday (10:00am-8:00pm), and Sunday(11:00am-7:00pm). It will be closed for Thanksgiving Day.

After all the gifts are open your kids begin to open the packages and want to play with the toys and you read on the package that batteries are not includes. You then notice that it needs AA batteries. You walk over to the drawer that you keep all your batteries and find that you are out of them. Panic sets in as all the stores are closed and now you have watch your kids be upset that they can not play with their new toys.

This problem could have been avoided if you had stocked up on batteries before the holidays. With the all of the electronic games, toys, remotes, and let us not forget the all important smoke alarms, we need to always have a fresh supply of batteries on hand. I have a routine that I follow whenever I buy a gift I check to see if it requires batteries and I purchase them and add them as a stocking stuffer with the gift.

Duracell Cooper Top All-Purpose alkaline batteries are not only dependable, they are also long lasting. It provides you with a 10-year guarantee in storage with Duralock Power Preserve Technology. The main thing is it is a brand that we have all trusted for years and is one that we can be confident in. CooperTone batteries are available in AA,AAA,C,D and 9V. These all purpose alkaline AA batteries come in 4 pack and 16 pack.
