Hop on the Trolley

September 01, 2015


Downtown Wisconsin Dells

There’s a new mode of transportation in town that is as old as the late 1800s. It’s the just-debuted Dells Trolley Tours, a historic trolley car plucked from the burbs of Chicago and renovated under the direction of owner Jeremy Ringdahl. In an amusing side note, Jeremy vacationed in the Dells as a kid and loved it so much that vowed he would find a way to live and work here someday. That someday came when he landed his dream job – Duck driver. With transportation his passion, he hatched a plan to move from on-water to on-land with his own trolley service. You can use the Wisconsin Dells trolley as hop-on hop-off transportation just like in the big cities, or reserve a ticket for a one-hour tour that blends history of the area with modern attractions in an entertaining narration given by the driver. Fittingly, the tour starts at the historic H.H. Bennett Studio, the original studio of the photographer who made Wisconsin Dells famous with his 1800s photos of the river and cliffs, and winds its way through the downtown, out to the village known as Lake Delton, through the countryside, and back again. There’s even a stop at Newport Park where riders can disembark to take photos of the Wisconsin River.

Here’s an idea for anyone planning a destination wedding or family reunion in Wisconsin Dells: reserve the trolley for your group. You can be sure of great photos and even better memories. Or, if you’ve never been to the Dells, make a trolley tour your first order of business.

An all-day pass will set you back just 10 bucks. The trolley runs year-round and is wheelchair accessible.
