Maybe another way to describe MagiQuest would be that instead of playing or watching a video game you are more like an interactive part of the game. In any case it was an pleasant surprise to our family.

The Tommy Bartlett Show

Here is the text display when the Image not load yet
I have personally been a visitor to the Tommy Bartlett Water Show on many occasions. In fact, several of my hometown high school friends performed in the water ski show several years ago. The ski and boat show is as good as or better than ever, and the ski performers are the best in the mid-west if not the entire country. This is a live, 90-minute show featuring high-powered boats, fast-paced water-skiing and breathtaking stunts on water, stage and sky.

Rick Wilcox Theatre

The mystifying magic of master illusionists Rick and Susan Wilcox is sure to be a big hit with the family. The show lasts about 90 minutes or so, and Rick and Sue use participants from the audience to help with stunts. Sit in the first couple of rows for a chance to be in the show.

Timbavati Wildlife Park

There has been a welcome addition to one of the original attractions in the Dells. In fact the original attraction dates all the way back to the mid 1950’s. The recent owners of Storybook Gardens has added an entire new theme in the way of Timbavati Wildlife Park!  By adding wild animals from all over the world they have created an entirely new attraction even more enjoyable for all age groups. Our visit really turned out to be an experience we’ll talk about for a long time.

And if you’re in the audience, you can’t help but to break out in laughter. Call for reservations & show times.

Tommy Bartlett Exploratory

The Tommy Bartlett Exploratory offers over 150 interactive activities. The optical illusions and puzzles will boggle your mind from beginning to end.

Canyon Creek Riding Stable

We found it was really nice to take a step back from all the excitement the Wisconsin Dells attractions have to offer and take a peaceful horseback ride through the trails of Lake Delton. The Canyon Creek tour lasts for about an hour and takes you through tiny streams and roaring waterfalls.

They also have a petting zoo at the end which is perfect for kids. All in all, it’s a great place to enjoy some quality family time.

Christmas Mountain Village Golf Course

Although Christmas Mountain Village may be known for its resort and ski hill, the 27 hole championship golf course is nothing to sneeze at. Being avid golfers, we feel the need to play any and every course possible, and this course was very impressive. From the well manicured fairways to the picture perfect greens, the Oaks Course at Christmas Village was as enjoyable as any other golf course we’ve ever played.
