The nine-hole course at Weymont Run Country Club leads players on a rambling chase through treacherous dogleg turns and narrow fairways. Built in 1971, the track extends for 3,124 yards over 84 bucolic acres, nuzzling up against dense forest on four holes and forcing players to remain wary of water hazards on two. The club also allows ample room for practice at its driving range, a perfect solution for those needing a pre-round warm-up or a testing site for a homemade catapult.

Forget actors, scripts, or props: Wisconsin Dells Ghost Tours likes its ghosts stripped bare of gimmicks and its encounters backed by bone-chilling authenticity. Its guides spin true tales of eerie happenings, all supported by police reports and historical documents, raising goose bumps as guests rumble through the darkest corners of the Dells on a luxury bus. The 75-minute expeditions visit more than 20 haunted locales, including unmarked burial grounds, houses plagued by spirits, and back alleys populated by dancing zombies. The tour guides open the closets of Newport, Wisconsin Dells, and Lake Delton to reveal skeletons lurking inside, and the tour’s well-researched, heart-quickening stories thrill and educate minds both old and young.
From the 10-story peaks of Timber Falls Adventure Park's Hellcat roller coaster, visitors can view the entire family-fun facility before quickly gliding back to the grounds. The Hellcat is one of three high-speed rides that keep adrenaline levels soaring at the facility. The park also hosts a log flume with two steep vertical drops, and a gravitational-force skyscraper ride that sends passengers as high as 160 feet in the air. Between high-speed public-transit simulations, guests can enjoy relaxing features such as the 72-hole miniature golf course. Tall trees and wooden bridges sit between each hole, providing the experience of jungle exploration without the inconvenience of having to hunt down your dinner—a Hot Pocket in a jungle-dweller’s refrigerator.
The laughter of children echoes through the dense pine forest and across the sandy beach before breaking on the lake's water like a crystal vase smashed with an inflatable hammer. Each week, new groups of kids explore Camp Lakotah's 126 acres alongside Little Hills Lake, engaging in more than 30 activities within its state-licensed and American Camp Association–accredited facilities. Campers engage in aquatic play, land-based sports, and arts-and-crafts sessions, honing both their physical fitness and creative sensibilities.
Staffers cater to each camper's needs throughout the week, guiding each individual toward activities focused on his or her personal goals and interests. The camp can serve vegetarian and diet-restriction-conscious food, and counselors can sing all campfire songs in the styles of both Bruce Springsteen and Andrea Bocelli.
As the owners of Skydive Adventure, Bill and Donna-Marie Hasenfus run a pretty tight ship. For one, their company is a member of the United States Parachute Association, ensuring everything from its staff to its equipment is up to par. Bill himself has been jumping out of planes and training students for nearly half a century. He puts that experience to good use at Skydive Adventure: for the past two decades, the company has taught up to 1,500 first-time students in a given year. For those who just want to feel the rush of a skydive—and enjoy a bird's-eye view of Wisconsin's lakes, rivers, and seasonal changes—Skydive Adventure also offers tandem jumps.
Experts in extreme motor sports and racing machines, Big Power Sports' mechanically minded crew revs up and rents out high-speed watercrafts for jetting around Wisconsin's idyllic waters. Relegating the snowmobiles to the garage for the summer, Big Power Sports breaks out a fleet of Yamaha WaveRunners on which to cruise the defrosted snowmobile track, Green Lake. With more than 11 square miles of open water, the placid playground hosts scores of fishing boats and kayaks for the pilot to rocket past as the passenger soundtracks the event by singing power ballads from the back of the jet ski's dual saddle.
