    2012-10-21What a total waste of money! There was no interaction with people dressed up as ghosts, monsters, etc. Just a bunch of old displays that had nor fear factor to them at all. Plus, it was maybe 8 minutes long. 10 dollars? Really? I guess if you're a person from out of town, you don't know better. Don't waste yourvtime

    Family Playtime After Dark
    2010-06-28

    wisconsin-dells-mini-golf-84When families vacation in Wisconsin Dells, believe us when we say they work hard to squeeze every minute of fun out of their getaway.  And that often includes hitting activities and Wisconsin Dells attractions after dark.

    Stroll downtown Wisconsin Dells on a summer evening and you’ll find families ducking into fudge and candy shops for a late night treat, then lingering on benches to let the chocolate-y goodness melt in their mouths. Stores up and down Broadway keep their lights on so shoppers can pick up a Dells hoodie or a new swim suit to debut the next day at one of the many Wisconsin Dells water parks.  And there’s nothing like mini-golfing in the Dells under the lights at places like Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf, Timber Falls Adventure Park. Or, plan on a keepsake photo from Old Abe’s Old Time Portraits or Professor Porter’s Old Time Portraits.

     

    big-sky-drive-in-dells-84What’s a classic night of fun without a drive-in movie?  Yes, there’s still such a thing in the Dells - at the Big Sky Twin Drive-In Theater.   Haunted houses seem to be scarier after dark, which makes the Ghost Out-Post Haunted House a family favorite when the moon comes out.

     

     

     

     

     

    There’s evening entertainment for those who prefer late night over matinee, like the Tommy Bartlett Show of water skiers on Lake Delton and the Rick Wilcox Magic Theater magic show.

     

    Kalahari WI DellsThe Dells' indoor amusement parks keep their lights on late for visitors as well.  Topping the list of family favorite Wisconsin Dells attractions are businesses like the massive Kalahari Indoor Theme Park, the laser bowling mecca known as Knuckleheads Bowling & Indoor Amusement Park and the Downtown Dells Wild Fun Zone.

     

     

     

     

    So forget curfews when you’re in Wisconsin Dells.  And don’t bother with a wake-up call the next morning either.  After all, you’re on vacation.

    ShowboatGhost Stories That Get You Thinking

    Here's a disclaimer: Don't read this if the idea of poltergeist makes you uneasy. O.K., with that out of the way, let's take a little tour of places in Wisconsin Dells that are purported to be haunted. First, there's the historic Showboat Saloon, a 100-year-old wedge-shaped building located at 24 Broadway in downtown Wisconsin Dells. It's long been regarded as haunted by a past resident – her name is Molly – and she favors the upstairs kitchen, opening and closing doors and fiddling with appliances. Her appearances became so regular that the current owner no longer allows people to rent out the upstairs apartment. The bar area has apparently been the scene of some supernatural activity too, with stories of human forms in turn-of-the-century clothing materializing in mirrors. Some say a strange voice has been heard numerous times near the stage area. In the cellar, unusual cold spots are apparent and employees have been known to experience feelings of nausea and sudden anxiety in this area.

    Others in the community say the ghost of lumber rafter turned riverboat captain Leroy Gates haunts the waters of the Wisconsin River. Gates was one of the first entrepreneurs to see the potential in sightseeing tours for the area and in 1856 he took out an ad declaring he had purchased a boat for the purpose of touring occult caves of the Dells. Gates met his death on September 8, 1895, but his apparition apparently didn't get the memo.

    Then there's Belle Boyd, famous Confederate spy who spent her final days in Wisconsin Dells. As the story goes, Boyd, who hailed from Virginia, aided Confederate generals using her flirtatious charms to get information from a Union general's aide. At the end of the war, she traveled the country to present dramatic narratives of her spying adventures. On June 9, 1900, she arrived in Wisconsin Dells to give a speech to veterans of the Union Army. Two days later, at the age of 56, she suffered a fatal heart attack. Her gravesite in the Wisconsin Dells Spring Hill Cemetery was completed with stones from each of the Confederate states. Some claim her ghost wanders the paths of the cemetery yet today.

    TombstoneFrighteningly Good Times

    If all that ghost talk gives you the heebie-jeebies, perhaps you'd have more fun exploring manmade attractions dedicated to scaring visitors. The Ghost Out-Post Haunted House has more than a dozen bone-chilling animatronics-filled chambers. It's open daily through the end of October, then on the weekends after that. Note – this attraction is not intended for little ones afraid of the dark.

    The Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort sure knows how to celebrate Halloween! The whole month of October is filled with family friendly activities such as wagon rides, trick or treat trail and Ken-Ducky Derby Halloween Duck Races. Don't miss their Family Halloween Costume Party on October 31st, featuring a costume contest with prizes for all winners. 

    The October calendar looks eerily appealing too at many of the Wisconsin Dells Waterpark Resorts. Throughout the month there are various haunting activities such as hayrides, mazes, trick or treating and more.

    One other not-to-be-missed attraction is the vampire exhibit at Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum. Look for the secret passageway and also allot time to bone up on your vampire trivia while you're there.

    Ghost BoatGhost Tours by Land and by Sea

    The Ghost Boat Tours of the Wisconsin River take passengers on an eerie after-dark excursion to Witches Gulch. Boats depart from the Dells Boat Tours® main dock at 11 Broadway in Downtown Dells, where even the historic ticket building will be decked out for Halloween. Upon arriving at Witches Gulch, passengers will disembark and snake along a narrow boardwalk leading deep into the darkened gorge. This after-dark tour, which runs Friday and Saturday evenings through Halloween weekend, is not recommended for children under the age of 11. Reservations are required and can be made by calling Dells Boat Tours® at (608) 254-8555.

    Hayrides and Mazes and Zip Lines, Oh My

    Less than a half hour from Wisconsin Dells in nearby Mauston, Red Ridge Ranch will have haunted hayrides and a haunted corn maze Friday and Saturday nights from dusk to 10 p.m. through the end of October. Weekday activities are a little less scary and include pumpkin painting and a petting zoo.

    If you like zip lining during the day, you’ll be screaming with delight knowing you can now zip by the light of the moon at the Moonlight Canyon Zip Line Tour at the Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort. The tour spans six towers, with the longest run 907 feet. You'll be 55 feet above the floor of Lost Canyon. Tours continue through the fall, weather permitting. Advanced reservations are required at (800) 867-9453. Whee!

    Looking to get lost in a corn maze? Stop by Chula Vista Resort’s 7-acre cornfield. It’s open (weather permitting) Friday - Sunday. In October, the corn maze features zombie events. Attendees are encouraged to dress up in their best zombie costume. Chula Vista also has a GPS and trivia game app for smartphones. Download it, and you will be given clues that help guide you through the maze. Isn’t that nifty?
