Ready for a truly unique addition to our series on Wisconsin’s indoor waterparks & water activity centers? Billed as “the first urban indoor waterpark of it’s kind in America,” Paradise Landing is located in the Hilton Milwaukee City Center.
The 20,000 sq ft facility features a three-story Jamaican village theme with four water slides, a Hydro-therapy Spa, and an idyllic lagoon. Watch the kids enjoy themselves on the Lily Pad walk, Turtle Squirt, Beached Boat Slide, Seashell & Frog slides, and Mushroom Rain Drop Fountain.
Because all this fun will create big hunger in even the littlest bodies, the Cabana Cove serves up a variety of snacks and refreshments. The menu includes nachos, pizza, sandwiches, ice cream, and hot dogs (prices are fairly reasonable, too!) Adult beverages are also available.
When you’re ready to throw in the beach towel, remember that you’re in the middle of Milwaukee’s many family attractions; the Zoo, museums, and shopping!

Up next in our series on Wisconsin’s indoor waterparks & water activity centers, we head to the Northwoods to The Waters of Minocqua.
No matter what the weather outside, you’ll find 13,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor waterpark fun for the entire family at The Waters of Minocqua!
Two 3-story-high, completely enclosed body slides carry you to a refreshing plunge pool. Or, have fun in the indoor/outdoor activity pool and relax in the indoor/outdoor hot tub. For the younger children, check out the kiddie area with a slide of it’s own and shallow depth water.
A snack bar onsite offers pizza, nachos, soda and a few alcoholic drinks for the adults. For dry fun, don’t miss the huge arcade just off the waterpark – great fun for “kids” of all ages!

Just outside the waterpark is a game room featuring video games, air hockey and pool table.

We head southeast to the Timber Ridge Lodge & Waterpark in Lake Geneva for the second in our series on Wisconsin’s indoor waterparks & water activity centers.
At 30,000 square feet of indoor fun, Moose Mountain Falls includes two water slides, lazy river, plus activity & splash pools. I certainly wouldn’t let this crisp fall weather keep me inside though – there’s really nothing like watching the stars light up the cool night sky while relaxing in the indoor/ outdoor hot tub!
There’s so much more for families to do in addition to the water park… As a sister property to the Grand Geneva Resort, Timber Ridge guests will also find:
- Indoor climbing wall
- Fitness center
- Nature trails (check to see if their guided nature walks are available too!)
- Horseback riding
- Carriage rides
- Golfing (ask about their golf clinics)
- Kids Are Grand activities & child care

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 right ‘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)
