    One Of The Best Winter Getaways Awaits You In Wisconsin Dells

    Here in Wisconsin Dells, we know winter, we embrace winter, we love winter.  And so will you! That’s because our winter combines the best of both worlds – seasonal outdoor activities and indoor water park fun. Get giddy over all these winter activities for kids and grown-ups.

    Winter Activities In Wisconsin Dells

    Snow blow yourself out of your driveway and get to Wisconsin Dells, where you can reacquaint yourself with the recreational qualities of snow.  Like snowmobiling, sledding, skating, skiing, snow tubing – you name, we have it here. In Wisconsin Dells, there are miles and miles of snowmobile trails criss-crossing the scenic countryside, so bring your sled.  We also recommend Cascade Mountain Ski, Snowboard & Snow Tube for those who prefer barreling downhill. There are candlelight cross-country ski, hike and snowshoe events at Mirror Lake State Park.

    When in Wisconsin Dells, expect things out of the ordinary, in a good way that is. Like zip lining in the winter. BigFoot Zipline, with six lines that take you above and through majestic red pine and white oak forests, is open year-round, for example.  And over at Vertical Illusions, an adventure outfitter known for its kayak and rock climbing tours in the summer, their experienced guides will take you on a climb of a frozen waterfall.  Talk about seeing the beauty of the area in a whole new light! They also have something called a snowshoe zip line tour, new for 2012.

    The snow scenery from the vantage point of the Downtown Dells RiverWalk is awesome. The community even has a charming outdoor ice rink at Bowman Park in Downtown Dells. For something unexpected, how about riding horseback through the snow?  Red Ridge Ranch Riding Stable and Canyon Creek Riding Stables are accepting reservations. See our full list of Wisconsin Dells winter activities.

    Winter Packages In Wisconsin Dells

    Where else in the world can you have guaranteed 80+ degrees and pleasant humidity every day of the year besides Wisconsin Dells?  Nowhere, that’s where!  We have indoor water parks geared toward toddlers and others geared toward tweens and teens.  Many of the indoor water park resorts offer terrific winter packages too.

    Winter Lodging In Wisconsin Dells

    There’s nothing quite as nice as cozying up in front of a fireplace after a long day of skiing or waterslide riding.  Check out these cabins and winter lodging options in Wisconsin Dells for an authentic feel of the north woods.

    There, the cure for cabin fever, ripe for the taking.

    Wholesale Pandimonium, In A Good Way That Is, In Wisconsin Dells
    2012-01-10

    Every January in Wisconsin Dells, Wis., the resort community better known as “The Waterpark Capital of the World!®”, there is a little tradition the local visitor bureau likes to call the official release of what’s new for the coming year.  Given everything that’s debuting in the Dells for 2012, frankly it might have been easier to chronicle what’s not new.  But, in the spirit of keeping the tradition alive, here is the rundown of new waterpark rides, attractions, accommodations, restaurants, shops and outdoor adventures for the new year.

    Big Waterpark News
    Starting outdoors, Noah’s Ark Waterpark, America’s Largest Waterpark, is debuting Quadzilla, a $1 million family mat racer slide that stands 47 feet tall, with lanes that run 323 feet long.  How can that be, you ask?  Because the four slides making up this ride are literally braided and twisted together, a first-of-its-kind for this community.  Riders will plunge head first on Quadzilla, reaching top speeds of just over 20 mph.  If you do the math, that’s 24 seconds from top to bottom.  The lanes start out enclosed, but as you race to the bottom, they become open lanes so you can see who’s winning in the side-by-side competition.  As you crest over vertical curves and gain even more speed toward the bottom, be prepared to experience a feeling of weightlessness.

    At Kalahari Waterpark Resort Convention Center, they’ve literally raised the roof to install two indoor Super Loop waterslides, the first of their kind in the world, the Sahara Sidewinders.  These slides stand 65 feet tall, which meant extending a section of the roof to accommodate the added height.  You’ll even be able to see the top of these slides from the interstate.  Riders will step into the slide and brace themselves as a trapdoor opens below their feet, sending them rocketing at speeds up to 25 mph.  Kalahari also installed an additional free fall slide for the really adventurous called the Screaming Hyena.  While the new slides will be a hit with tweens and teens, the toddlers have not been left out, as the resort has opened a new kid’s play zone called Tiko’s Watering Hole, with more than a dozen kiddie slides and interactive African animal figures – think grey-crowned cranes doubling as squirt guns.  A rain tree gushes water as if it’s raining for added squeals.

    Heading back outside, the Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort is adding two new water tube-style slides, one that loops and one that jettisons riders straight down, both with trap doors to get the free fall started.  Riders can reach speeds up to 40 mph thanks to maximum G force.  Both of these behemoths will be in the Glacier Canyon Lodge section of the sprawling resort, the country’s largest combo indoor/outdoor waterpark property.

    Over at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Parks, their archeological crew has “excavated” the $3 million Lost City of Atlantis, a gigantic outdoor water fortress that covers over three acres.  This new archeological find will be easy to spot at a whopping six stories tall.  Tailored for all age groups, the Lost City of Atlantis will feature a monster dump bucket and seven water slides including a bowl ride, boomerang slide, family tube slide, kids’ water slides and a geyser blasting water over 160 feet.

    The new splash pad at Sherwood Forest Camping & RV Park proves waterpark fun doesn’t have to be limited to just waterpark resorts.  This zero-depth attraction is festooned with rainbow water arches, squirt cannons and geysers.

    New Ways to Be Entertained
    There is a really nice variety of new indoor attractions this year starting with Wild Fun Zone, located downtown Dells and offering indoor bumper cars with spinning action, 3-D black light mini golf, a laser tag arena that takes the shape of a space cave, virtual roller coaster ride and mega arcade.  Look for the huge gorilla on the top of the building to find this place.

    Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum has added a “shrunken head alley” featuring a half-dozen actual shrunken heads.  Next door at Wizard Quest, a new character by the name of Professor Oodlesmack has been added to the quest displays.  His eccentric hobby is creating new flavors of popcorn, so naturally there is an Oodlesmack Popcorn counter attached to Wizard Quest, with more than 40 different gourmet flavors.  Plus, the Dells 4D Special FX Theater, on the same block, has two new films this year that will make you feel like you’re in the movie.

    There’s just something about oversized gadgets that gets kids, and adults, engaged.  At the Tommy Bartlett Exploratory – Interactive Science Center, you can lift a 3,000 pound car off the ground using an oversized lever.  This new hands-on exhibit is located right outside of the front entrance to the Exploratory.  Head inside and you’ll find two other new exhibits – one, a musical experiment called “Dancing Sands” and the other a “Square Wheel” that actually rolls.  Side note – the Exploratory is also celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2012.

    Jeremy Allen’s Grand Illusions magic show now has a theater all its own on Stand Rock Road and, to mark the move, Allen has added two new David Copperfield-type escape illusions.  You’ll also see four new white tigers making their stage debut.

    Outdoor Recreation and Adventures

    Vertical Illusions, known for its inspiring Wisconsin River kayak and rock climbing adventures, is now offering an Eco Zip Line Canopy Tour.  You’ll zip off the top of Chimney Rock, a 500-foot bluff affording 120-mile views, and then travel along 15 tree-to-tree zip lines without ever touching the ground. For winter visitors, Vertical Illusions offers a 40-foot frozen waterfall climb.

    If you like zip lining, there’s a good chance you’ll also like the new adventure ropes course located inside the Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort.   It’s called the Northern Lights Sky Ropes Course and it’s perched 30 feet above the mega arcade in the Wild West region of the property.  Wearing a full-body safety harness, you’ll climb your way around 42 challenges with varying degrees of difficulty.

    Big Chief’s Go Karts is new, with enough uphills and downhills to make you dizzy.  A hairpin turn is thrown in for good measure.

    Lost Voyage, a nighttime adventure on the Wisconsin River that takes participants on a mystifying scavenger hunt of sorts in search of a mythical (or is it?) tour boat that vanished years ago, has new chapters planned for this ongoing conspiracy mystery.  Look for clues online, in the ticket center lobby and as you enter Cold Water Canyon on foot and interact with characters you meet along the way.

    For baby boomers and older, the first thing that probably comes to mind when they hear “P.T. 109” is the movie by the same name that dramatized President John F. Kennedy’s WWII experiences during which he captained a PT boat.  Now, it’s also part of the moniker for a Wisconsin River tour of the Upper Dells glacial park. The P.T. 109 Boat Patrol sightseeing excursion is narrated, drawing on both history and legend of the river, and showcases the sandstone rock formations.

    Sports Report
    This is just about ESPN-worthy news.  JustAgame Fieldhouse has completed a huge addition to its facility, adding two regulation high school courts that can be reconfigured to a regulation college court with seating for 2,000.  No sooner were the floorboards in place than the announcement came that JustAgame had been selected by the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association as the site for the 2012 All Star Games, bringing 200 of the best Wisconsin high school players to the Dells.

    Anniversaries and Reunions
    The Tommy Bartlett Show is marking the 60th anniversary of its iconic water ski show with reunion performances the weekend of June 30-July 1, inviting skiers back to celebrate with the current cast of “Livin’ the Dream.”  Retro ski acts are making a comeback too, featuring the ski tricks that made the show famous the world over.  Other special events and appearances to mark the occasion will be sprinkled throughout the summer.

    Both Swiss Maid Fudge and Wisconsin Dairyland Fudge are marking their 50th anniversaries with sweet specialties that will only be available for the anniversary year.

    Wollersheim Winery is celebrating its 40th anniversary of being in business, although the land’s use as a vineyard dates back to the 1840s, with tours, events, displays and wine releases.  Already a national historic site, Wollersheim was also recently bestowed with an historical marker from the county’s historical society.

    A Little Food, A Little Wine
    Sprecher’s Restaurant & Pub of Wisconsin Dells brings to town its casual style dining, micro-brews and gourmet sodas made by its own Sprecher Brewery.  The cream soda is a must, as is the root beer.

    Fawn Creek Winery has introduced two new wines.  The Kilbourn Red is a cranberry-flavored Shiraz; one dollar from the sale of every bottle is donated to the Kilbourn Volunteer Fire Department of Wisconsin Dells.  Cabin Fever is a backberry-flavored Merlot and is billed as a seasonal wine to help cure the doldrums of Wisconsin winters.

    Insider Shopping Finds
    Downtown has a new shopping experience in women’s apparel – it’s a boutique called Alpha Beta Karma.  This store has the feeling of a Parisian flea market meets So Ho boutique, thanks to the owners’ frequent buying trips to bring in fashion, jewelry, footwear and accessories from both east and west coast designers.

    The third downtown newcomer is Thirty Below Leather, selling an ever evolving inventory of purses, gloves, hats, wallets and belts, and the best part is that every item in the store is $30 or less.

    For anyone into gardening, Wisconsin Landscaping & Garden Center will lure you in with their solar gazing balls, glass bird feeders and garden art. If you’re in Wisconsin Dells on a celebration vacation and would like flowers delivered, their floral department is at your service.

    RVs Welcome
    Finally, Ho-Chunk Gaming – Wisconsin Dells has added a new recreational vehicle park to its complex.  It’s called Hocak Houisa Chi’ Nuk Luxury RV Park, which translates to "Ho-Chunk Parking Village."  This three-season addition has 49 spaces with amenities like Wi-Fi, water, sewer, electric, fire pits and picnic tables, along with a comfort station with showers and a guest laundry facility.

    If you’re still looking for other things to do in the Dells, then you are not only ambitious but clearly a diehard fan, so have at it by logging on to the official web site, www.wisdells.com.  There you’ll find complete listings of waterparks, attractions, restaurants, retail, lodging and service choices.

    Happy Holidays from Wisconsin Dells2012-08-16If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’ve been to Wisconsin Dells at least once and an equally good chance that trip was for a summer vacation. Time to broaden your horizons. The community, known affectionately at “The Waterpark Capital of the World!®”, also wants to be known as a four-season destination and they’ve earned that.Read More
    Happy Holidays from Wisconsin Dells
    2012-08-16

    WinterWhen you’re known far and wide for your wildly fun waterparks and classic attractions, you can’t back off just because it turns cold. After all, it’s Wisconsin where winter makes up a big chunk of the calendar, so why not kick it off big with the holidays and then continue strong all the way through to spring thaw?

    For winter lodging, you can’t go wrong with a big cabin, like those on the grounds of the Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort, or a vacation home rental from Sand County Service Company. They just feel, well, Christmas-y. New Year’s Eve bashes are hosted from one end of town to the other. Choose a cozy party or an all-out countdown celebration, whatever suits your fancy.

    But that only takes us up to January 1 and there’s a lot of winter left to fill.

    Consider a cure-cabin-fever getaway to a weather-proof indoor waterpark resort - the community has plenty to choose from. There's something so satisfying about swimming indoors in 80+ degree temperatures when there's snow falling outside. A mid-winter getaway would be a good time to test out the new waterslides at the Kalahari Resort. Or perhaps you could set a goal of riding every waterslide within Mt. Olympus' indoor waterpark.

    If you prefer not to get wet, there are other indoor adventures to consider, like rock climbing, ropes courses, laser tag, mini-golfing and go-karting, to name a few.

    A little fresh air is a good thing too, as in tubing, boarding or skiing at Cascade Mountain Ski, Snowboard & Snow Tube or Christmas Mountain Ski, or how about a little ice skating on Lake Delton. The area has lots of snowmobile trails as well. Outdoor outfitter Chimney Rock Park Zip Line Tour - Vertical Illusions will take you on a frozen waterfall climb to experience the beauty of the area like you've never see before. Snow shoeing and cross country skiing are other options for taking in the natural wonders of Wisconsin Dells in the winter.

    Red Ridge Ranch Riding Stable is open year-round, so maybe you'd like to opt for a trail ride through their 250 acres of rolling farmland and wooded hills. Ask about their sleigh rides too. Same suggestions goes for Canyon Creek Riding Stables, where riders enjoy a guided tour with an old west theme.

    There are plenty of things to do in Wisconsin during the winter. Those winter months will whiz by.

    What is it about heights that people either love or hate?

    Since there isn’t enough room here for a pseudo-psychotherapy session, let’s just focus on the lovers. You know who you are. For starters, your vocabulary does not include the word “no” when it comes to opportunities for scaling, careening, flying and plunging. You’re usually the ringleader, and the first in line too.

    In Wisconsin Dells, plenty of business owners like your type. In fact, maybe the our website should have a tab called “Thrill Seekers.” For now, the section on Amusement Parks and Rides will do.

    Here’s a sampling of fly-me-to-the-moon picks and why they’re so popular.


    Roller Coasters


    Zooming up and down not enough to get your heart pumping? Then how about looping upside down before disappearing underground? That’s the experience the Hades 360 wooden roller coaster at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Parks delivers. At Timber Falls Adventure Park, the Hellcat coaster combines 10-story drops with extreme 70-degree banks, just to keep it interesting.

     

     


    Trapdoor Waterslides


    Take your pick – indoor, outdoor, straight down, looping. Waterparks in Wisconsin Dells with waterslides where the bottom drops out from under you include Noah’s Ark Waterpark, Kalahari Waterpark Resort and Wilderness Hotel and Golf Resort. The community isn’t called the Waterpark Capital of the World!® for nothing, and visitors wanting a waterpark thrill invariably have the Dells at the top of their bucket list. 

     

     


    Ziplines


    Ziplining Speed, altitude and gear are the trifecta for today’s modern thrill seeker. In Wisconsin Dells there is something for everyone, and ziplining is no exception – the Wilderness Canyon Zipline Canopy Tour feeds the need for speed and pleases the eye while you explore the beautiful forests like only a bird can. Become one part Tarzan and one part Batman as you careen through the tree tops, across the lake to BigFoot Island at BigFoot Zipline Tours. Still need more? Soar like an eagle with Chimney Rock Park Zipline Tours –Vertical Illusions.

     

     


    Extreme Rides


    For you science nerds, you know what it means to pull Gs at 60 mph 160 feet off the ground and what that can do to a person. Yes, the correct answer is “make them scream uncontrollably.” The Skyscraper ride at Timber Falls Adventure Park should really come with ear plugs for those in line. You can also turn your world upside down on the new Revolution 360 ride at the Kalahari Indoor Theme Park. Bring along seven friends to lift off together on this circular pendulum-style ride.
