If your idea of summer fun is to splash down a water slide or get tossed around on a water coaster, then Wisconsin Dells is the place for you. Known and loved by all as the “Waterpark Capital of the World”, Wisconsin Dells is teeming with dozens of indoor and outdoor water parks, each with rides that will delight even the least adventurous soul. However, if you are an adrenaline junkie who is looking to test your nerves against the most jaw-dropping and gravity-defying water park rides, here are some that you can’t miss:
1. The Smoke That Thunders at Kalahari
This is one of the newest additions to Kalahari’s range of thrilling rides. The most interesting part about this ride is that it is the first ride in the country that combines two rides into one wild ride. First, you will experience a steep drop that will send you spinning down a huge tunnel, and then a second drop shoots you up a wall, causing you to hang almost vertically before you splash down to the end of the ride.
2. Black Anaconda at Noah’s Ark
Black Anaconda, which is as thrilling as it is trippy (owing to the red and white cobra skin patterns), is more than 400 yards long. A combination of a waterslide and rollercoaster, it is what you would call a water ride from hell that blurs the line between thrill and pure terror. Yes, it is that good. First, you go spiraling down the mouth of the snake at almost 30 miles per hour before getting tossed up and down by the splashing water. This is one is not for the faint-hearted.
3. Howlin’ Tornado at Great Wolf Lodge
This one is a family favorite at the Great Wolf Lodge. You, along with your group of friends or family members can slide down together on a four-person raft ride. You will experience one big drop that will plunge you down a giant six-story tunnel and along with that, you will also glide up and down the walls until you are splashed to the end.
If thrills are your thing, then at Wisconsin Dells, you are in for a real treat. From massive free-fall slides to terrifying water coasters, you will never run out of fun things to do.
