Travel Guide to Wisconsin Dells
Go Two by Two Down the Tubes
Noah’s Ark is the largest water park in the United States, home to 49 water rides, two wave pools, endless rivers and the monstrous Black Anaconda Water Roller Coaster. You’ll also want to ride the Scorpion’s Tail—America’s first nearly vertical water slide loop, a 400 foot-, 10-story slide at more than 50 feet per second. If you’re looking to get thrown for a loop, the Time Warp will do just that. Step into the portal of the World’s Largest Bowl Ride and slide off into a new dimension of fun on a four-person raft. Or if the fear of the unknown gets your adrenaline pumping, venture into the Bermuda Triangle. Go down the tube slides on a double-rider raft because there are so many winding turns there’s no telling what you’ll encounter. One thing’s for sure, it’s going to be exciting.
When it comes to delivering extreme thrills, Mt. Olympus® Water and Theme Park rises to the occasion in mythological proportions. Plummet down the tracks of Hades straight into the darkness of the world’s longest underground roller coaster tunnel. Keep one eye open, or shut them both aboard the Cyclops. This coaster drops you 75 feet and meanders 1,680 feet through Zeus’ Playground. You’ll find more epic adventures at Medusa’s Indoor Water Park. Slither down the tubes of the wet and wild Anaconda into a jungle pool flowing through the mouth of the Mayan Raging River. If you consider yourself but a mere mortal, the Parthenon Indoor Theme Park is home to more casual excitement like go-karts and Tea Cups.
Call of the Wild
Kalahari® is another exciting all-weather water park. Experience the Master Blaster, the first-ever uphill water coaster, and the FlowRider®, a surf simulator. The attractions also include a six-story, glass-enclosed Ferris wheel, bowling lanes, a mini-golf course, go-kart tracks and a rock wall. Weather permitting, other outdoor attractions include the Swahili Swirl and Anaconda slides as well as the Splashdown Safari interactive play area. In all, more than 20 Wisconsin Dells water parks are available to make a splash landing during your Bluegreen vacation. All you have to do is choose your experience and decide how wet you want to get.
Waddle Through the Dells
The Original Wisconsin Ducks®, one of the most popular Wisconsin Dells attractions for generations, take you on one-hour tours with splashdowns into the Wisconsin River and Lake Delton. These land-and-water vehicles, originally created for the Army during World War II, will take you past twisting sandstone cliffs and spectacular rock formations for which the city Wisconsin Dells is named.
