If you think the only place to gather ‘round the tree, open presents and feast on holiday treats as a magical snowfall commences as if on cue is at grandma’s house, guess again. The waterpark resorts in Wisconsin Dells are where families gather too to celebrate the season in a setting of comfort and joy.
If all you want for Christmas is for your family to be together, then being together in Wisconsin Dells could be everything you wish for and more, thanks to the work of the elves, err employees, at these four waterpark resorts.
Let It Snow…Indoors “Snow Land” is the perfect description for Great Wolf Lodge in December, with nightly snow showers inside the grand lobby courtesy of snow-making machines suspended from the ceiling, visits with Santa, holiday story time, reindeer bingo, sing-alongs and holiday dance parties.
Decking the Halls How would you like someone else to put up the tree and bake the cookies for you? At Chula Vista Resort, you can rent a tree ready for decorating with ornaments supplied by the resort and decorate sugar cookies with icing and sprinkles delivered to your room. Now if you are really into the holidays, consider their full-room holiday decorating package with garland, door hangers, balloons and more.
Selfies with Santa The jolly old elf himself will be posing for pictures on weekends in December at Wilderness Resort. There will also be cookie decorating, Christmas-themed craft projects, special deliveries to good girls and boys and Christmas Day buffets. Peel off time for indoor go-karting, ropes courses, room escapes and, of course, indoor wave pools and waterslides.
Save Room for Dessert The holiday buffets at Kalahari Resorts & Conventions are legendary. Turkey, ham, prime rib, sides hot and cold…just be sure to save room for their famous chocolate fountain extravaganza. Spend the night and enjoy the warm temps in the indoor waterpark, a relaxing spa treatment, a zip around the indoor adventure park, and a little gift shopping for yourself.
