Next time you head to the Wisconsin Dells make sure you stop by the Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort to check out its new 'dueling' waterslide ride.

The Waterpark Capital of the World

Every year when my kids' Spring Break rolls around my family usually heads to our family cabin in Wisconsin, which is only about 45 minutes North of the Wisconsin Dells. The other thing that typically goes hand-in-hand with this trip is spending one day at a waterpark in the Dells.

Now that Spring Break is about a month away, we are busy planning our yearly pilgrimage to 'The Waterpark Capital of the World." While Great Wolf Lodge is usually where we end up, I'm thinking we may need to check out Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort this year. Here's why...

In case you can't quite figure out what is happening in that video, it is the new waterslide at Wilderness that allows you to race an opponent to see who reaches the finish line first!

Waterpark Attractions at Wilderness Hotel in the Wisconsin Dells

For those, like me, that have never been to Wilderness before, this waterpark looks and sounds amazing! The hotel has 8 total waterparks, with 4 of them being indoors. Since we're not quite ready for outdoor swimming yet, here are the 4 waterparks you can enjoy INSIDE the Wilderness Hotel:

  • Klondike Cavern Waterpark - This area features a 4-person raft ride called "The Hurricane", body, raft, tube slides, a lazy river, and more.
  • Wild Waterdome Waterpark - This area features America's largest wave pool and it has a glass ceiling which makes you feel like you're truly basking in the sun. (you can even get a tan in the winter!)
  • Wild West Waterpark - This newly-renovated area of the park is where you'll find the dueling waterslides; Twisted Trails (tube slide) and Warped Wagons (mat ride). It also has a 4-person 'raging' tube ride and a new swim-up bar for adults!
  • Cubby's Cove Indoor Waterpark - While all ages can enjoy this area of the waterpark, young children and toddlers will especially love the multi-level spray area and two mini water slides.

Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort actually features 3 different lodging facilities to choose from, and there are some pretty great Spring Break specials you can take advantage of now too. Find out more at
