Treasure Island Waterpark Resort and Family Land Waterpark, both owned by Jim Mattei, and Big Chief's Mt. Olympus Theme Park will merge into one entity called Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park. The owners said the merged entity will become the largest property in the Wisconsin Dells area in terms of amenities offered.

No one has anything to say? Then I'll say it, sounds great, can't wait. I hope they can pull it off successfully, best of luck to Mt. Olympus.

I think that is a creative approach to have the admission price included in the room rate. nice marketing technique.

This is good news. Now, lets just hope they leave that miserable Top Secret attraction behind.

The article and synopsis are a little confusing. Treasure Island and Family Land are not two separate waterparks. Treasure Island Waterpark Resort comprises Family Land (an outdoor waterpark), Bay of Dreams (an indoor waterpark) and a hotel.
I hadn't heard much about Treasure Island before; Noah's Ark and Kalahari seem to get all the notoriety in the Dells. But, according to the website TI is the (self proclaimed) largest waterpark resort in America. This merger creates a pretty substantial amusement park/resort. I'm looking forward to visiting the new complex during the ACE convention next year.

Noah's Ark is a waterpark, not a hotel actually. I'm interested, as a local, to see what kinds of water rides they are going to add in next year. Do you think they'll have some kind of shuttle between the two parks?

I never said Noah's Ark was a hotel. As far as waterparks go, Noah's Ark is the one I hear about most in the Dells, and when talking about indoor resorts, Kalahari is the one that is most often mentioned.
