The Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells is aptly named. The property is huge, sprawling, and difficult to navigate without a guide (ie, a friend who’s been there before). Still, there are treasures waiting to be discovered by truly intrepid adventurers, in the form of four – count ’em, four – indoor water parks.
Those aren’t the only treasures at the country’s largest water park resort, though. Among the other features is a large outdoor water park that’s open during the summer. All together, the resort has more than 500,000 square feet of water attractions. You’ll have to get a room at the resort if you want to enjoy them, though – admission is not open to the general public.
The hotel has everything from economy guest rooms to luxury accommodations. If you’re staying awhile – and you’ll need to in order to see everything the Wilderness Resort has to offer – you might want to rent one of the many suites that include a full kitchen and other amenities for a long-term stay. One extra that’s included with every room is admission to the water parks.
Beyond the two water parks, the resort has a bunch of attractions to keep you and the family busy during your stay. In fact, there are too many to list here. These are some of the highlights:
- Indoor Ropes Course
- Zipline Tour
- Miniature Golf
- Laser Tag
- Award-Winning Day Spa
- Multiple Arcades
Again, that’s really just a small sample of the many activities and services. Half of the fun of visiting the Wilderness Resort is discovering all the things there are to do.
Slides and Rides
The four indoor water parks at the Wilderness Resort all feature a Wild West theme, but otherwise have a character of their own. The four water parks are:
- Cubby’s Cove – smaller indoor water park with kiddie play area, hoops, and spa
- Klondike Kavern – includes long lazy river and family raft ride
- Wild Waterdome – 70,000 square foot water park with sun roof and large wave pool
- Wild West – another large park with a kiddie fort (includes tipping bucket), bumper boats, and group raft rides that plunge you into darkness
The indoor water parks at the Wilderness Resort are missing some of the premium features to be found at places like the Kalahari. Still, the size of the resort and number of things to do are enough to keep you and your family entertained for a week or more.
The Wilderness Resort is centrally located in Wisconsin Dells, so you’re never too far away from the town’s many restaurants, bars, and tourist attractions. Of course, there are plenty of things to do at the resort if you don’t want to go out (and you probably won’t if it’s the middle of winter). However, if you want to mix things up, the number of attractions in Wisconsin Dells is impressive to say the least.
