Wisconsin Dells

Wednesday, July 7, 2004 11:53 PM
I am going to the Dells this Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and im coming home Monday.

We are staying at Kalahari Resort.

The plan, so to speak, is we leave on Friday at 10:00 Central Time, from Mishawaka, IN. About a 6 hour drive.

Then do the indoor and outdoor water parks at the hotel for the remainder of the day.

Saturday we plan on going to Big Chief's.

Is BC close to Kalahari? I don't mean driving distance necessarily, but walking too?

Sunday we plan on going to Noah's Ark, to check that out. I do expect big crowds then because after all, its supposed to be 90 degrees.

We plan on doing the Hotel Stuff whenever we have downtime.

If you guys have any tips, or know where to direct me for some good Wisconsin Dells information, I would really appreciate it.

Well, It's a long, long, long walk (not realistic) from the kalihari to Mt. Olypus, so you will need a car.....Noah's Ark too.

DOn't forget Timber Falls!

Have a great time!

Kyle, Mount Olympus is not far at all from the Kal. If I remember correctly it's within walking distance. Just don't go to the Top Secret attraction. It was awful. Noah's Ark is a blast too!

Oops...I might be wrong....maybe I was thinking of Great Wolf. You will have access to a car, no?

Oh yeah, I just thought it might be easier for me to walk back to the hotel if i get tired. Then walk back a couple of hours later. But, 5 minutes away in a car isn't that bad either.

See my parents are going down there to do other attractions, while I do the coaster/water related things.

Any shows they might like? They are gonna see this one magic show thats supposed to be real good, but I forgot the name.

We are going to BC together as one famiyl though.

We love Go-Karts!

I saw the magic show and it was very nice. Not David Copperfield or Harry Blackstone, but a good show. Not the waste of money other things in the Dells are.

That's good, they plan on doing the magic show and touring around the dells on boat looking at scenery or something. I do hear, that the Dells can be a tourist trap.

The duck rides (boat rides) can be awesome. That was one of our favorite things there. If you have the spare cash, a ride on the SCAD dive or bungee jump at Extreme world is amazing (though overpriced)

We did the Original Ducks and it was really fun! You have to ride that. THe Top Secret thing really left me with a sour taste as it was $12 for 10 minutes of dumbness. Hit some of the haunted houses too. One of them scared the heck out of my girlfreind :). The gocarts at BC rock too! Don't forget Avalanche is supposed to be open Sunday at Big Timbers from what I have been reading.

Well I think I just made room for that on the travel thing for Monday!

The Kalahari is at least two miles from Mount Olympus and most every other major attraction. I don't believe there are sidewalks the whole way either (the area near Kalahari is not walking friendly).

Pick up a Dells book as soon as you get there (they're everywhere) and do what looks interesting to you. The Tommy Bartlett show good entertainment.

Ride Avalanche in the front seat.

When you do the coasters at Mt Olympus, there is a slight chance they might not check your seat belt. Please be prepared for that possiblity so you don't almost die again. Also, they may not card you for the last seat of Cyclops. (You must be 18 to ride that car.) The ejector air at IB is NOTHING compared to that seat, and there is only a buzz bar and a seatbelt that can easily slide loose. Just a heads up for you.

Raven, are you related to Kyle? ;)
Thursday, July 8, 2004 6:28 AM
No, I just read his last TR and I want to make sure he is okay on his trip. ;)
Thursday, July 8, 2004 11:14 AM
LOL Thanks guys, I'll make sure I read every safety sign before I ride the ride.;)

Are you serious about having to be 18 to ride in the last seat?

I think you guys are gonna want to read my Dell's Trip Report! Which I hope doesn't get closed down like the previous two! ;) or :)

I hope Avalanche is open, that looks real fun!

Kyle, Kalahari is a bit farther than two miles from Big Chief. Kalahari is located in the town of Lake Delton, while Big Chief is located in the town of Wisconsin Dells. There is a good stretch of road, especially by the Wilderness, and the Wonder Spot that has no sidewalks and is extremely dangerous to walk on. Timber Falls is even further, closer to downtown Wisconsin Dells. I would recommend driving to and from each location. Many of the roads around there are VERY busy and are less than pedestrian friendly.

Have a good time, and tell us all how Avalanche is! I'd go on Sunday for the opening but I have too many plans already. :(

Wow, I guess THe Kal is further than I remember. My trip there this past June was so packed because of work and it was a whirlwind. Next time I go I will have to pay more attention to what is all over. Cyclops in the last car was an experience though!

I don't know for sure if I am gonna get to ride Avalanche, but I will be on my hands and knees praying that I do.

Actually, Avalanche has been since Monday. Sunday the 11th is simply an enthusiast discount day.

“Are you serious about having to be 18 to ride in the last seat?”

edit: It works for me. Try it again. *** Edited 7/9/2004 1:52:07 AM UTC by RavenTTD***
