Thinking about a voyage to the water parks of the Wisconsin Dells this summer? There are a number of spots where you and your kids enjoy one of America’s best summer holiday epicentres at, so we’ve put together a synopsis of what you can expect at each place … enjoy!

1) Chula Vista Resort Waterpark

With over 26 water slides that stretch over a mile and a half in total, Chula Vista Resort Waterpark has plenty of excitement for the whole family, no matter the time of year.

With tickets to the park included in your hotel admission, this all-encompassing family resort makes most facets of your trip uncomplicated, as your lodging, dining and fun needs are all in one place.

Highlights include Flyan Mayan, which is the biggest indoor water coaster in the United States, and the outdoor slides in summer, which feature thirty foot drops on some rides.

2) Kalahari Resort Waterpark

While this park certainly has plenty of attractions for children and their parents (not the least of which is the Victoria Falls family raft ride), those seeking some adult time will find plenty to love about the Kalahari Resort Waterpark as well.

Fine dining and the Wisconsin Brewpub top this list, as does the Mud Hut, which is a swim up bar where those of age can enjoy the aquatic ambiance of this resort with a refreshing alcoholic beverage. Teens in your clan will love the recently installed Flowrider, which allows participants to hang ten on a surfboard despite being thousands of miles from the nearest natural surf break.

3) Mt. Olympus Theme Park & Water Park

More than just a water park, Mt. Olympus offers plenty of attractions both land and water based for your family’s entertainment needs. The theme park’s biggest star is Hades 360, which is the first roller coaster in the world to feature a 360 degree loop and a steep 110 degree turn. When the heat of a Wisconsin summer leads to take to the refreshing H2O of its water park though, the excitement won’t stop there. 44 indoor and outdoor slides, two giant wave pools, a lazy river, and an epic children’s play area known as the Lost City of Atlantis will see to that…!

4) Noah’s Ark Waterpark

A visit to the Wisconsin Dells won’t be complete without a journey to Noah’s Ark Waterpark, as it is America’s largest facility dedicated to aquatic fun. Though it is only operational during the summer, the lack of an indoor adjunct only lends to the sense of urgency to discover this place on vacation. Your expectations won’t be met with disappointment, as its eighty attractions spanning from mat slides to wild tubing rides will be up to the challenge.
