Did you know that there are roughly 1,600 water parks worldwide and more than 1,000 of them are here in the U.S.?
Water lovers need not travel far and wide to enjoy the thrills of water slides or lazy rivers. Wisconsin boasts dozens of indoor & outdoor water parks including the newly opened Chaos Waterpark in Eau Claire. Attached to the Metropolis Hotel and adjacent to Action City Entertainment Center, Chaos features water slides such as Twister, Bailout, or Hurricane Run.
If you’re not headed towards Eau Claire, you’ll still find plenty of wet & wild fun at Wisconsin water parks around the state. We’ve already shared a few Wisconsin Dells spots with you in this post, but check out some of the others as well:
The Waters of Minocqua
This northwoods-themed park features indoor-outdoor hot tub & pools along with water slides and kiddie pool and guests of the hotel have free access to the water park throughout their stay. When you’re ready for some dry fun, check out the mini-golf, horseback riding or go-carts near the hotel.
Lodge at Cedar Creek, Wausau
At 50,000 square feet, the Lodge at Cedar Creek in Wausau is one of the largest in northern Wisconsin. Kids will love the anticipation of waiting to be drenched by the 800 gallon tipping bucket. Of course, you can’t head to Wausau & not catch a Woodchucks baseball game!
Timber Ridge Lodge, Lake Geneva
Families heading to the Lake Geneva area won’t want to miss the fun at this indoor/ outdoor water park with two interactive splash pools, water slides, lazy river & more. Parents can also enroll kids in the “Kids are Grand” day programs which allow grown-ups free time to enjoy the nearby Well Spa + Salon or get in a round of golf at either the Brute or Highlands courses.
Best Western Midway Hotel Riverfront, La Crosse
If your travels take you to the Mississippi River this summer, be sure to check out the Best Western Midway’s tropical themed, indoor water center. Kids and adults alike will enjoy slides, geysers, whirlpools and more! Of course, La Crosse is also home to a Northwoods League team, the La Crosse Loggers.
