Wisconsin waterparks bring out the kid in all of us, no matter your age. From relaxing hot tubs to adrenaline-pumping slides, waterparks offer wholesome fun for everyone, and many are open year-round so you can experience the joy and laughter water parks bring during any season. So, let’s dive into some of the top waterpark destinations found statewide to make your family vacation even more special.
Wisconsin Dells Waterparks
The Wisconsin Dells is home to over 20 indoor and outdoor waterparks, which offer something for everyone in the family.
Spend a day at the largest waterpark in the Wisconsin Dells, Noah’s Ark Waterpark, and feel like a kid again. The park sits on 70 acres of land and features everything from a lazy river to several children's play areas and wave pools. Test your surf skills at the Surfin’ Safari and conquer Raja, a 335-foot water slide designed to look like a king cobra. Both day and season passes are available for this incredible attraction.
Another popular destination is the Chula Vista Resort, open year-round. In addition to lodging, restaurants, a spa and a golf course, Chula Vista offers 200,000 square feet of outdoor and indoor waterpark attractions. During your stay, rent a cabana while your kids play in the pool or hit up all 26 water slides together.
Waterparks Across the State
The Wisconsin Dells isn’t the only place in Wisconsin to enjoy water slide thrills and relaxing lazy rivers. No matter your destination, there’s sure to be a waterpark nearby that’ll add a splash to your family vacation.
Lake Geneva is home to the Timber Ridge Lodge & Waterpark at Grand Geneva. With two gigantic slides and a lazy river, this indoor waterpark — and its heated pool — is the perfect getaway any time of year. Plus, lodging is available, as well as vacation packages to make planning a breeze.
From three-story-tall water slides to a lazy river, the Tundra Lodge Resort, Waterpark & Conference Center in Green Bay has it all. During the summer months, the outdoor jacuzzi and splash pad is open. Host a family reunion or another celebratory occasion — there are plenty of on-site event spaces — and stay overnight in a roomy suite.
If your travels take you to Madison, be sure to visit Crawdaddy Cove. You’ll find this shrimp-boat-themed waterpark at the Holiday Inn & Suites Madison West. While ideal for young children, Crawdaddy Cove includes an oversized whirlpool and a pool bar for adults.
In Sheboygan, the Blue Harbor Resort & Conference Center is the place to be, partially because of its indoor waterpark. At a balmy 84 degrees year-round, it features a surf simulator, water basketball and a toddler tidepool. If you’d like to stay the night or a couple, you may enjoy scenic views of Lake Michigan from your room.
Beloved by the young and the young at heart alike, our waterparks offer an escape from the everyday. With so many to choose from, you’ll want to keep bringing your family back, again and again.
