Adrie Groeneweg was 19 when he decided he was tired of leaving his hometown of Hull, Iowa, every time he wanted pizza. Armed with six pizza recipes from his mother, Groeneweg opened the first Pizza Ranch in 1981, delighting travel-weary pie lovers with dough and sauce made fresh every day. At more than 170 locations in 11 states, a bevy of signature pizzas form the backbone of the sprawling menu, with such options as the bacon- and beef-covered Bronco and the Tuscan Roma's delicate assemblage of spinach, tomatoes, and alfredo sauce. A wide variety of such specialty pies lines the buffet table, but diners who don't see their favorite combo can make a special request to the pizza chefs?who will not only bake it and add it to the buffet but also hand deliver the first slice to the table. Alongside the disks of mozzarella and pepperoni are trays of the Ranch's other specialty, crispy broasted chicken that's seasoned with a house blend of spices and then broasted so that its crunchy coating conceals ultramoist meat and the occasional winning lottery ticket.

Laughter and shrieks of excitement fill the air as families plunge down an enclosed water slide's 420-foot descent. The thrill ride is just one of the attractions that pack King's Pointe Resort & Waterpark's indoor and outdoor entertainment facilities. Nestled against the edge of Storm Lake, the outdoor park invites visitors to soar down its five slides and ponder loudly why its lazy river doesn't get a real job. The howling hurricane slide’s green open flume winds down to the earth in tangled twists, and side-by-side slides let friends race down 100-foot drops. Within the 20,000-square-foot indoor park, three more slides, a rock-climbing wall, and a slew of year-round activities await. Above all else, King's Pointe Resort & Waterpark makes safety a priority across all of their attractions; Red Cross–certified lifeguards keep a close eye on all visitors.
With balconies overlooking Storm Lake or the city, the onsite resort offers a relaxing retreat in which to browse free WiFi and order room service. Hungry guests have more options in the resort’s two restaurants: the Sara Lee Snack Shack and the Regatta Grille, where a wood-fired grill cooks ahi tuna and chefs pour alfredo sauce over al dente pool noodles.
