Wisconsin Dells IS the Waterpark Capitol of the World(R) & what better way to kick off our new series on Wisconsin’s indoor waterparks & water activity centers than with a property located rightAquaKingdom ‘on the Strip’ in the Dells?

At 16,000 square feet, the Atlantis’ indoor waterpark may feel small in comparison to others in the Dells, but young families will enjoy its “small scale and the ability to keep a close eye on young children.”  With both indoor & outdoor pool areas, the Atlantis includes an indoor waterpark with slides, water splash features and basketball hoops plus a quieter indoor “Lobby Pool”.   Parents may also appreciate the poolside bar, open on weekends in the off season.

For the more adventurous, or those with older children, the Atlantis also includes free tickets for Mt. Olympus just a short walk away.  New for weekends in October – the Mt. Olympus opens Bitten, its “First ever “Haunted Night at the Theme Park””.

Another ‘don’t miss’ for your fall getaway -and just down the street from the Atlantis- are the Army Duck Tours.  Open through October, these original Army Ducks offer daily tours through Dells Glacial Park.  (Money Saving Tip: order tickets online & save $3 per person)

As always, click on over to WisconsinLodging.info to learn more about The Atlantis Waterpark Hotel & Suites as well as more Wisconsin waterpark destinations.
