10 Wisconsin Dells Attractions That Are One-of-a-Kind

April 07, 2011

Only in Wisconsin Dells

Here are 10 reasons to drive past other destinations and deposit yourself in Wisconsin Dells for your vacation.  You might be able to experience all 10 in one trip, but we recommend you visit us a few times year.

  • The largest concentration of indoor and outdoor waterparks in the world.
     
  • The world’s largest and country’s only looping waterslide, Scorpion’s Tail at Noah’s Ark Waterpark.
     
  • The world’s longest underground roller coaster tunnel, with 90-degree turn in complete darkness for added scream-factor, is the highlight of wood roller coaster Hades at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Parks.
     
  • The largest fleet of WWII land-to-water craft in the country, better known as DUCKS.
     
  • The longest running outdoor show in America, the Tommy Bartlett Show, featuring water skiers and stage performers.  It’s been around since 1952, when Tommy’s traveling road show first performed in the Dells.
     
  • More holes of mini-golf than anywhere else in the state, 325 to be exact.
     
  • Two classic Wisconsin supper clubs – Del-Bar and Field’s at the Wilderness - both designed by a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright.
     
  • The H.H. Bennett Studio, the original 1875 studio of famed landscape photographer Henry Hamilton Bennett, who not only made Wisconsin Dells famous with his landscape photos, but also invented stop-action photography.  The evidence is in his photo of his son Ashley caught mid-air leaping from one rock bluff to another.
     
  • The International Crane Foundation, the only place in the world where you can see all 15 species of cranes.  This restored prairie-style sanctuary is on the outskirts of town.
     
  • Circus World is home to the world’s largest collection of antique circus wagons and show vehicles, more than 200 in all.  This historic site, just a short drive from Wisconsin Dells, also houses some 8,000 circus posters, with the earliest dating back to 1855.
