Wisconsin Dells Indoor Water Parks
Welcome to Wisconsin Dells Indoor Water Parks. The Dells is an enormously popular year round attraction for family vacationers and a “unique vacation destination" for kids and adults of all ages. Whether it’s winter or summer, there are several world class indoor water parks in the Wisconsin Dells to choose from!
Enjoy the warm summer weather by spending a sunny day with your family at the world's largest outdoor water park, or beat the snow and cold weather and enjoy a weekend getaway at America's largest indoor water park.
The African safari theme park experience is right here in the Wisconsin Dells. The Kalahari Resort offers what they say is the largest indoor water park.
Upon entering the water park, you enter the park through the largest dressing/locker rooms I’ve ever seen. We had no problem finding a chair in this 120,000 plus square foot water park and proceeded to climb the Master Blaster,
a 570 ft. uphill water roller
coaster. What a ride!
The Kalahari Resort indoor water park boasts virtually every attraction found at a large outdoor water park. When you first walk in, the scope and size is almost overwhelming. For information and pictures about the specific water rides click on this link to Kalahari Resort.
The boys insisted on trying their luck at surfing the famous Waverider. It is very challenging and they had a lot of practice runs ending up on their behinds! But they and many others sure had a lot of fun trying. We took a break and relaxed on a tube down the Lazy River, where we could stop and start when and wherever we wanted. The Wave Pool was a lot of fun as the waves are close to like being at the ocean. They also had several good size whirlpools in this area.
Also, in the indoor water park area, several concessions are available such as Zulu Grille, Cracked Coconut, and the Mud Hut which serves kids and adult beverages inside the middle of the water park while overlooking the fun. Overall, we were very impressed with the water park, especially the dedicated lifeguards on duty. It was also nice to see an extensive kids play area and a 0 depth pool for the very young. The water park is open to the public as well when purchasing an all day pass. You do not have to stay in the resort to experience the fun.
Great Wolf Lodge
A definite advantage for the Great Wolf is that the indoor water park was not open to the public and was for hotel guests only. The water park was not crowded when we went, which meant we wouldn’t be standing in any lines. The water park was enormous. It featured over 70,000 square feet of water park fun, including countless number of water slides, pools, a lazy river, whirlpools, and more.
Our favorite ride by far was the Howlin’ Tornado. The entire family could get in one tube and slide and swirl our way down the funnel. Everyone needs to check this ride out, you will not be disappointed. There is also a forty foot tall interactive tree house that with a ring of a bell dumps over 700 gallons of water on everyone down below. After all that excitement, we found the perfect cool down…a relaxing float down the lazy river.

We really enjoyed the Fly’n Mayan and rode it several times. Hang on tight and keep your head and back against the rear support right from the take off. The ride starts fast, goes fast, and ends fast. It’s fast!

The Wilderness now has three distinct Wisconsin Dells indoor water parks with over 200,000 square feet. New to the Wilderness Resort is the Wild Waterdome
. It has an awesome wave pool named theThe Great Wave
. I personally road the waves several times with and without a tube. For indoors it is really amazing. Beth and I also road the water slide called the Mammoth
a few times. It is a very large tube that seats four, and gives you quite a ride.
They have several private cabanas for rent and two eating areas called Tommy Knockers and Survivors Bar and Grill. The part we liked the best about this Wisconsin Dells indoor water parks was the wide open space in the dome. It has more of a beach feel with lounge chairs. Bring your sunglasses and suntan oil. The Dome is a new hi-tech glass that allows you to suntan all year round.
The Wild West Water Park, has over 70,000 square feet of fun! One of our favorites rides was the Fantastic Voyage, which is a five stories high family raft ride. There is also a lot of fun to be had at the Cannonball, and several other tube slides. This also has a smaller wave pool, and has a huge play area for the kids with a Wild West Bucket Dump. If your hungry or thirsty check out the Thirsty Buffalo and Grizzly‘s Grill.
has 65,000 square feet of hands on activities including, body slides, lazy river and much more. This was the main water park the first time we visited the Wilderness Resort Wisconsin Dells indoor water parks. We came with the entire family including Grandparents who enjoyed watching all the grandchildren ages, 2-20, race around the attractions.
Our children were the three oldest grandchildren, so they set off with friends and cousins, while we retreated to the hot tub that was built partially inside and partially outside of the building. There is nothing more romantic than to sit in a hot tub watching and feeling the beautiful Wisconsin snowflakes fall around you. They have several good tube slides but the big boys go the best action from the Hurricane. Kid and family foods are available to eat at the Klondike Kanteen.

Another indoor play area, features two 2-story waterslides, Blackbeard's Dark Tunnel Mystery Voyage Lazy River
, the Water Factory
, and two whirlpools. One of the favorites that keep kids coming back is the bucket of water…you guessed it - a full bucket of water is dumped on everyone down below! If you’re looking for a smaller, more contained resort, then the Polynesian is your ticket.
