Wilderness Resort Wisconsin Dells
The Wilderness Resort Wisconsin Dells
With 4 indoor water parks and 4 outdoor water parks set on a 600 acre resort, the Wilderness Hotel in Wisconsin Dells is considered to be America’s largest waterpark resort destination.
That’s 12 football fields worth of astoundingly awesome jaw-dropping thrills and adventurous water thrill rides. Are you ready? In all, there are 52 slides, 6 lazy rivers and lakes, the wave pool, 8 kiddie and toddler pools with play structures, 9 hot tubs, and 8 activity pools!
The Wilderness Resort Wisconsin Dells is not only filled with some of the world’s most awe inspiring water rides, it also feature Wild Rock, an 18-hole golf course, The Woods 9-hole family course, Sundara Spa for grown-ups only, laser tag, haunted house, Timberland Play Park, 3 black light indoor mini-golf courses, 3 mega arcades, paint-your-own pottery, go-karts, plenty of restaurants, a zip line tour ride, and go-karts and kiddy go-karts
We have taken a trip to the Dells many times. We try to go at least once during both the summer and the winter months. We have been to the Wilderness Resort Wisconsin Dells on four different occasions over the past 5 years. They just keep growing and adding great new lodging and water park options. They really have something for all ages as our family keeps growing and growing up. We really think that the prices are reasonable for the value that is offered as well.
We always try to arrive several hours before the official check in time. We don’t expect to get a room early, but even with the check-in at 4 pm and check-out at 11 am, the resort water park policy allows you to check-in early so you can use the water park while waiting for your room, and then again all day after you check-out. So come early and stay late. They also have a changing area with lockers large enough to fit clothes for two to three people.
Before making that call to Aunt Alice and Uncle Henry to see if they can let you borrow the guest house, there is one small detail you should know. The Wilderness Water Park is very exclusive. It is for the guests of The Wilderness Hotel and Golf Resort only. You have to stay at the hotel to play at the hotel.
Think the Wilderness Resort Wisconsin Dells is for summer fun only? The Wilderness Territory Resort Water Park is open all year round. Winter, summer, spring and fall, it does not matter. Even when there is a blizzard raging outside you can still relieve the tedium and winter blues by taking a trip to the resort and enjoying the fun and exhilarating adventure of some of the wildest rides in the world. We stay at the Wilderness Resort Wisconsin Dells because there is something to do for kids and adults of all ages. We can go to the same place and everyone has a great time.
Indoor Water Parks
Winter was never this much fun with 4 full sized indoor water parks to quench your thirst for adventure. Each water park area is set up for just about every age. Within each area, they have set up some great areas for the younger crowd. They usually include a couple of small slides, sprinklers and bubblers with zero depth water entry. For the older kids and even adults, they have many great variations of slides for speed and turns or both.
The wave pool is awesome and the indoor-outdoor hot tub is great during the winter months. It’s almost magical out there when the snow is falling. The older kids’ favorite rides were the Black Hole at the Wild West and the Hurricane at the Klondike Kavern. The Hurricane takes your breath away...and was just a little too much, even for me.
What do you think of a 70,000 sq. ft. dome filled with wild rides and a private poolside cabana to relax in? What if we add the ability to sunbath in the heart of winter? The dome at the Wild WaterDome Indoor Water park is made up of state of the art Foil Tec material that not only allows the beautiful live palms and banana trees, but will also allow you to go home in December with a beautiful summer tan.
What else does this futuristic park hold in store for you? How about the largest indoor wave pool in America, the Dueling Mammoths raft race, a play lagoon for the kiddies, and private cabanas.
It is so nice to take some time and get away in the winter months, especially to the Wild WaterDome at Wilderness Resort Wisconsin Dells, where you tan all year round. It sort of gives you the feeling you are on a tropical vacation.
The wave pool is the one of the biggest I have seen for an indoor waterpark. It’s a walk in beach style entry and the deep end is six feet with some really nice big rolling waves!
If you need a little more excitement, the Klondike Kavern section of the Wilderness Resort Wisconsin Dells may just be your “cup of tea “ with 65,000 sq ft of gripping jam-packed fun .

There are also two more good water slides, a nice lazy river, three pools, Bear Foot Island, and Toddler’s Cove that our youngest really enjoyed.
