This was our second time visiting Wisconsin Dells. When someone told me a few years ago that this is the “water park capital of the world” I thought she was kidding. Who knew you could play at water parks year-round in Wisconsin?
The first time we went there it was for Jake’s 12th birthday and now he is 17. My how times flies!
We find it more fun to stay on property at the water park hotels when we visit, but we park the RV at a nearby campground so that Fat Cat has a place to stay. 😉 On this trip we stayed for 2 days each at Kalahari Resort and Wilderness Resort.
You actually have to be an overnight guest at Wilderness Resort to play at the waterparks, but Kalahari Resort offers day passes if you’re not staying there. I think we prefer the resorts that do not offer day passes because they are less crowded.
We tend to avoid visiting places during the most crowded times of the year, so when we came here in May the outdoor waterparks were not open yet. That didn’t matter; there was plenty to do inside.
Each resort had really fun adventure parks to keep us busy when we were tired of walking around in wet bathing suits. The adventure parks included go karts, climbing walls, ropes courses, mini golf and other fun stuff.
Walking on the ropes course above the arcade was a little scary. I kept seeing people below me and hoping I wouldn’t fall on them. Of course I couldn’t have fallen on them since I was secured with a harness, but I was still nervous the whole time anyway.
The mini golf at Wilderness had an “under the sea” theme which included aquariums. That was really cool and I especially loved these 2 cute fish that kept swimming up to the window to see me.
After a fun-filled week at the Waterpark Capital of the World, we moved on to Michigan which I will begin writing about next time.
