Is it possible to hit three of the four Wisconsin parks in one day? Where should I spend most of my time and should I, perhaps, allot more than one day for the Wisconsin Dells area? What are my major coasters and unique rides to hit in those parks?
For those of you in the know, thanks in advance!
On the other hand, there's a ton of other things to do in the Dells. If you're planning on going to Noah's Ark (and you should if you like waterparks), you should plan at least a majority of one day for that.
Personally, I'd plan for two days if you've never been there before.
Don't forget Little-A-Merrick-A (near Madison) either. The more support they get, the closer they'll be to finally erecting Little Dipper again.
It is really easy to hit every single coaster in the state of Wisconsin in one day if you start at Little A Merrick A in the morning and then hit the Dells in the afternoon/evening. Avalanche really starts rocking at night with some seriously insane, out of control rides.
That being said, I'd say one day for Noah's Ark, and you could probably do Mt. Olympus that same day (in the evening--they're open late). Little A-Merrick-A isn't worth more than a couple of hours. If you can afford it, Kalahari Resort has an awesome indoor waterpark that's worth a day in itself.
Noah's Ark is a blast, but I think Family Land is awesome for a lower price. Fewer crowds, and they have two kick-ASS slides. Demon Drop or something like that is the name, and there's one right next to it too.
I actually have an extra 2-4-1 coupon for both Noah's and Family Land that I'd be willing to mail anyone who's interested...
So you liked Family Land? And you liked Big Chief's?
They've been combined into Mt Olympus.
See why there's so much fuss about it?

If you listen closely, you'll hear me screaming all the way from Sandusky..
Last June Dawnmarie, Zingo, and I did Mt Olympus and Little A-M-A quite easily in a single day. You won't need more than 2-3 hours tops at Little A-M-A.
I really appreciate it!
Now, here's a final question on the Wisconsin parks: is the second and third week of June a good time to go or should I try and go a few weeks earlier, while school is still in session?
Regarding the waterparks, even June can be chilly in WI. We just had a flurry of warm days, but it's back in the low 60's today. I've gone there on days under 80 degrees, and it feels very nippy!
Everyone is really pumped to ride Avalanche and all of the Mt. Olympus, but I'm having a really difficult time convincing the rest of the group that Little A-Merrick-A is worth a stop. They are worried that since it opens at noon, it will take away from time at Timber Falls and Mt. Olympus. Any ideas to help coax them? I'd also like to do Riverview as well, but since that is actually in the Dells, they should have less of a problem going there.
Waterparks interest me none, so I doubt I'll be going to Noah's Ark, though some of the other members wanted to go there. I could just hit Riverview while they're at Noah's Ark.. hmm...

As for convincing people to go to little america, first see if they are 5 years old. If not, ask if they are credit whores. If not, I really can't help.
If you get to Little AMA by noon you should be done no later than 2pm. It really depends on what else you want to do other than the coasters. If you're just there for the three credits you could be done within an hour.
They have a walk-thru Haunted House [that I accidentally missed] and a nice long train ride thru the countryside. They have some classic flats that are fun and a unique single-car monorail.
If the Dells parks are open until 10pm I think you'll be OK spending some time at Little AMA. I was there early last June and was done with Mt. Olympus in about 4 hours, and that includes multiple rides on the three woodies.
