If you can’t wait to introduce your toddler to a giggle-inducing splash pad, geyser, kiddie waterslide or squirt cannon, then you’ll definitely want to consider the mid-sized resorts in the Wisconsin Dells community. Alakai Hotel & Suites has a zero depth pool perfect for toddlers who just want dip their toes in the water. Atlantis Waterpark Hotel & Suites has toddler slides, plus water basketball for the next age up. At Grand Marquis Waterpark Hotel & Suites, the dolphin and dinosaur slides are irresistible to young children, and same goes for the bubbling geysers and slides at Meadowbrook Resort, and the polar themed playlands at Wintergreen Resort & Conference Center. Then there’s the Polynesian Water Park Resort, where the country’s first indoor waterpark was built and where kid-centric water gadgets and gizmos still rule. When your little squirts are ready, go ahead and graduate to the bigger slides at Great Wolf Lodge, with story time to follow in the lobby that evening after they’re all tuckered out.
Don’t overlook campgrounds for little ones. Sherwood Forest Camping & RV Park has a huge splash pad with rainbow arches plus a heated pool. Yogi Bear™ Camp-Resort & Water Playground has three water areas appealing to toddlers all the way up through teens.
Speaking of teens, and tweens for that matter, you can never go wrong with the waterparks at Wilderness Resort, Kalahari Resort Waterparks, Chula Vista Resort, Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park and Noah’s Ark Waterpark. They offer enough racer slides, wave pools, bowl rides, plunge slides and water coasters to keep that age group busy. Now here’s one surprise to end this post: Those five waterparks also have kiddie areas. So if your children range in age from those just learning to toddle to those who zip from one extreme ride to the next, they have you covered and everyone goes home just as happy as they were when they arrived.
