2017-05-14Pirate's Cove is a great tradition for my family and is so fun and cheap!
-VictoriaWest Allis,WI
2009-05-22Came up last summer for the first time to experience the fun of your golf course. The place was packed, however the experience was wonderful. Coming from Dubuque, we don't get to experience a golf course like yours. Loved every minute of the course. The attractions and set up was awesome. We are planning to make another trip up this year to experience it again.
-StephanieDubuque,IA
2008-08-25I love coming there with my grandsons.5 dollars for all day at the play area is great.I am 55 and the peddle carts are easy for even me to have a lot of fun
-MaryBaraboo,WI
2008-06-17I got my first hole in one at Pirate's Cove! Yeah, sure, maybe it's mini golf, but it's tough! I go back every year to try again!

See the Dells in amusing style. The banter of the drivers is good clean comedy, and the scenery on land and water is a sight to behold, up close and personal.

Let Dells homemade fudge melt in your mouth. Buy a caramel apple, dipped multiple times for good measure, for midnight snacking.

Honestly, the Tommy Bartlett Show is synonymous with Wisconsin Dells and is one of the most fun Wisconsin Dells attractions. Remember, don't try all those tricks at home. Leave it to the professionals.

Heading Downtown? Here's Your Intinerary
2010-04-01

There are so many ways to slice and dice a day in Downtown Wisconsin Dells, but here's one itinerary to consider that will give you a real taste of both the Dells' classic and contemporary sides.

  1. Begin the day in the Dells with a round of mini-golf at one of the downtown area's courses -- Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf or Timber Falls Adventure Park. It's cooler in the morning, allowing you to make a go at playing dozens and dozens of holes.
  2. Get gussied up in costumes and pose for an old-time photo. Saloon settings are always fun, or maybe the gangster getaway car is more your style.
  3. Set aside quality time for a visit to the H.H. Bennett Studio, one of the great historic Wisconsin Dells attractions. The location is a certified Wisconsin historical site and is the original studio of the famed 19th century landscape photographer who is credited with making the Dells famous.
  4. In keeping with the history of the Dells, walk the RiverWalk and see vistas of the Wisconsin River not accessible for 75 years. This winding paved pathway has benches and game tables nicely spaced along the route.
  5. Stop for lunch off the main avenue at Rail Dog, located at the corner of Oak and Wisconsin. This is a real train car -- a 1956 Milwaukee Road caboose, to be exact -- turned corner hot dog stand. The owners will insist you try their very own homeland creation, the Polish taco. This is just one of many kitschy dining options Downtown Dells.
  6. For dessert, head to any one of the fudge or sweet shops that line the main avenue. Load up on hand-dipped in the Dells chocolate-covered toffee, homemade fudge, gooey caramel apples and saltwater taffy.
  7. Wear off those calories with some retail therapy and check out great Wisconsin Dells deals. There are upscale stores with fashion-forward resort wear and handmade jewelry. There are souvenir shops that give kids a chance to pick up a Wisconsin Dells logo sweatshirt or a pair of moccasins without breaking the vacation budget. And, as you'd expect, there are some great swimwear retailers.
  8. Time to cool off with a tour of the river. Boarding docks are located throughout the downtown area. Hint: If you really want to cool off, try a jet boat ride. You're sure to get plenty wet on one of these!
  9. Would you be surprised to know you can stay downtown? Classic Wisconsin Dells hotels, motels, even a B&B are sprinkled here, there and everywhere.
  10. After checking into your room, head back out for some free entertainment. On most summer evenings, you'll find musicians and dancers at the corner of Broadway and Eddy Street.

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.

indoor-water-parks-wi-dells-99Wisconsin Dells Indoor & Outdoor Water Parks

Some families just seem to have the adrenaline gene.  You know the type.  They’re happiest when every second is filled with adventure, intrigue, exploration and fun.  And that just covers plans for the morning.  If you’re one of those, Wisconsin Dells applauds your energy and zest for life.  In fact, you’ll feel right at home in this, “The Waterpark Capital of the World!®”, given many of the attractions here sprung up with family fun in mind.  Plan for at least a few days to get to everything on your list, knowing there will be plenty of time to sleep later.

Let’s commence with a lodging choice.  Of course there are great water park resorts.  The area has small, medium, large and gargantuan-sized water park resorts, so it’s your choice.  If you like the option of indoor and outdoor water parks, then consider one of the five largest - the Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort, the Kalahari Waterpark Resort Convention Center, Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Parks, Chula Vista Resort or Great Wolf Lodge.  The number of rides, slides, tube funnels and watercoasters your family can play on is staggering.  The surf machine at Kalahari is enough to keep tweens and teens occupied for hours at a time as they try to catch a wave indoors.  At the Wilderness Resort, the place is so sprawling they have shuttles to take you from one water park to the next on the property.  Their new zip line gives you a lay of the land from the air as you glide above the tree tops.  Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Parks' outdoor water park includes a surf pool with nine-foot waves and a sandy beach and six side-by-side racing slides. Their indoor water park includes towering tube slides and endless river. Chula Vista Resort has an outdoor water park overlooking the Wisconsin River, a second outdoor water park on the other side of the property, and an indoor water park that you access via an underground tunnel.  Very cool.  Great Wolf Lodge has built its stock in trade with the younger kids and has themed their place to the hilt.

 

outdoor-theme-parks-wi-dells-99America's Largest Outdoor Water Park

If you plan to visit Wisconsin Dells during the warm weather months, you could stay at your favorite hotel or motel, and then head out first thing in the morning to spend the day at Noah’s Ark Waterpark, the country’s largest outdoor water park.  Noah’s Ark has the extremes, with the family friendly Tadpole Bay at one end of the spectrum and the new Scorpion’s Tail loop-de-loop extreme tube slide for bigger kids and adults at the other end.  Bring comfortable aqua shoes as you and your family will be covering 70 acres in your quest to try all 80 rides, slides and activities at Noah’s. 
 

 

indoor-theme-parks-dells-99Indoor Wisconsin Dells Amusement Parks

When you’ve logged sufficient hours at the water parks, dry off the kids and head to the indoor amusement parks.  Kalahari Indoor Theme Park has a six-story high Ferris wheel, multi-level go-kart track, laser tag, 24 lanes of bowling, a ton of arcade games, a ropes course, climbing wall and mini-golf.  Let’s all pause to catch our breath.  Knuckleheads Bowling & Indoor Amusement Park also has two dozen lanes of bowling, a 4D theatre ride, bumper cars and go-karts, plus you can grab dinner next door at Buffalo Phil’s Pizza & Grille, where their three secret-recipe BBQ sauces, made and bottled on premise, making family dining there triple the fun.

 

outdoor-theme-parks-wi-dells-99Outdoor Dells Amusement Parks

There are outdoor amusement parks that are must-stops for families who crave fun and exhilaration.  Timber Falls Adventure Park has a roller coaster called the Hellcat that features 70-degree banks and 10-story drops and is a favorite among roller coaster fan clubs.  You’ll get some air on the coaster, and even more air on their end-over-end ride called the Skyscraper.  It pulls 4 Gs at 60 mph 160 feet off the ground.

 

 

 

mini-golf-wisconsin-dells-99Mini-Golf In Wisconsin Dells

Time to move on to mini-golf.  Actually, you can stay put at Timber Falls and golf 72 holes, all in the shade of tall pines along the Wisconsin River.  There’s also Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf.

 

 

 

 

wi-dells-go-karts-99Dells Go-Kart Tracks

Large outdoor go-kart tracks are a favorite for families who like a little competition with their fun.  ADare Go Carts is everything you’d expect from a good track - hairpin turns, fast straightaways and racing through waterfalls (this is Wisconsin Dells, after all.)

 

 

 

 

jet-boats-wi-river-99Jet Boats On The Wisconsin River

Right about now you may be looking to cool off a little.  Take a jet boat ride on the Wisconsin River and you’ll cool off a lot, as in get soaked while the wind is whipping through your hair.  These rides are a blast, from the first 360-degree turn to the last, all under the power of a 1,200 hp engine.  There are two companies offering this option - Jet Boat Adventures and WildThing Jet Boats.

 

 

 

wi-dells-live-entertainment-99Dells Live Entertainment

End the day with some family entertainment that plays with your senses - Dells 4D Special FX Theater is a good choice, as is the Rick Wilcox Magic Theater - and then a great burger at Monk’s Bar & Grill, either the original restaurant downtown or the expanded version at the Wilderness Resort.

There, that should be enough family fun and adventure for one Wisconsin Dells getaway.
