Kalahari Resorts celebrated the announcement of Nov. 12, 2020 as the official opening date for their Round Rock location by bringing a caravan of 22 life-size animal sculptures to the new resort and convention center site.
The herd of one-of-a-kind sculptures includes 12 elephants, seven zebras, a mother and baby rhinoceros and a cape buffalo, each weighing up to 10,000 pounds and measuring up to 10-feet tall. Each piece of art was designed and sculpted specifically for placement at the Kalahari Resort in Round Rock by National Rock and Sculpture, a process that took more than 15 months to complete.
Kalahari Resorts broke ground on the Round Rock project in May of 2018. The 350-acre resort will feature America’s largest indoor waterpark, including 20 pools, 30 waterslides, 975 guest rooms, five restaurants, an indoor adventure park, 200,000 square feet of flexible meeting space for events and more.
Construction is on schedule for the November opening as crews at the resort and convention center make finishing touches and employees are hired to ready the facility for guests.
Kalahari estimates hiring 700 employees in 2020. Virtual career expos are hosted every Wednesday by Workforce Solutions Rural Capital Area (WSRCA). Open positions include lifeguards, managerial staff, culinary staff and information technology work, among others.
