A Couple’s Favorite
“The Dells” as this resort town is called by natives, is known for its scenery and laid-back pace of life, making it perfect for couples or anyone who is looking for peace and quiet. The Wisconsin River runs through the town making it perfect for river tours of the spectacular sandstone formations that line its bank. Couples will enjoy the Sunset Dinner Cruise, featuring live music ranging from Country to Island Reggae, paired with a succulent Surf ‘N Turf entrée. Passengers are even able to disembark and take a romantic torch-lit walk through the hauntingly beautiful Witches Gulch. Tickets are on sale for $50.
The area is home to numerous indoor and outdoor water parks, the most notable being Noah’s Ark Water Park. Whether your children are three or thirteen-years-old, they will have a blast at this family-oriented amusement park. Older children and adults will enjoy the mammoth water slides. Be sure to check height requirements to make sure everyone in your party who wants to ride is able. Be warned—these slides are for thrill-seekers. Smaller children and people looking for a calmer experience will enjoy the Endless River, Wave Pool, and arcade. Check their website for seasonal prices at https://www.noahsarkwaterpark.com.
The Dells’ premier form of entertainment is Wizard Quest, a full-scale 13,000 foot Harry Potter-like interactive game. This is a real-life mock-up where gamers will cast-off their controllers and physically find their way through mazes, obstacles, riddles, and hidden clues to unleash the “good wizards” trapped within the game. “Evil wizards” strive to block you at every turn, so watch out, the game is timed. Free all the wizards by the time the clock runs out to win. The game is primarily meant for teens and adults, but there is a kiddy section if you have young adventurers. Tickets are on sale for $15.
