Spacious Suites Above Massive Indoor Water Park

High above Fort Mackenzie—the four-story waterlogged treehouse that feels like a mixture of Swiss Family Robinson and _Pirates of the Caribbean_—a 1,000-gallon bucket slowly fills with water. Eventually it topples, drenching those gathered below in a torrent of water. Heated to a balmy 84 degrees, Great Wolf Lodge’s indoor water park sports 17 splash-filled attractions, including a wave pool, a six-story funnel slide, the Crooked Creek lazy river, and two Hot Springs whirlpools.

The 80,000-square-foot aquatic arena is merely one of many activities at the family-friendly resort. During the ShadowQuest and MagiQuest live-action adventures, kids wield wands and journey through a land filled with mythical creatures including pixies, dragons, and Bob Dylan. Scooops Kid Spa doles out manicures and pedicures to pintsize patrons sitting atop ice-cream-cone stools and banana-split thrones—free ice cream completes each visit.

Onsite dining options include hot breakfast at the Camp Critter Buffet and steaks, burgers, and fresh fish at the Loose Moose Bar & Grill. Family Fireplace Suites accommodate up to six guests and feature microwaves, refrigerators, and flat-screen TVs. This Getaway includes a $50 resort credit with the two-night stay option.

Wisconsin Dells: Picturesque Scenery and Family Entertainment

Before the Dells became synonymous with water parks and amusement rides, the Midwestern destination's claim to fame was its scenery. Visitors in the mid-1940s came to see the craggy rock formations that frame both sides of the Wisconsin River. These bluffs—or dells—are still visible today from the downtown area, which is rife with kitschy attractions, from mini-golf courses to go-kart tracks.

But it's safe to say that most visitors nowadays come for the water parks. In fact, the Dells area likely has more water slides per capita than any other spot on the planet. The fun doesn't stop in the cooler months, either, thanks to a slew of indoor aquatic centers, many of which are nearly as elaborate as their outdoor rivals.

For a break from all the chlorinated excitement, take a stroll along the river, where you’ll find antique stores, candy shops, and a Bavarian-themed village. At a handful of German restaurants, you can wash down plates of schnitzel with pints of lager to the sounds of glockenspiels. The H.H. Bennett Studio museum makes for an interesting side trip. Exhibits recount the early history of the Dells through the life of the 19th-century landscape photographer whose work originally attracted tourists to the area. Just down the road, in the town of Baraboo, Victorian buildings and quaint shops lie on the outskirts of Devil's Lake State Park, where 500-foot bluffs present a challenge for intrepid rock climbers.
