The Wisconsin Dells Go Dry

The Journal Sentinel has a very interesting article today about the new trend of the big indoor and outdoor water parks located in the popular Wisconsin Dells resort area moving toward offering dry rides and attractions to keep guests visiting longer.

The area has become so saturated - pun intended - with water parks and water attractions that they are now diversifying through dry rides.

Mount Olympus started the trend back in 2006 when they opened an indoor theme park, and now many others are following suit.

This past December the Kalahari Indoor Theme Park opened and now offers guests a selection of rides and activities to take part in - all indoors.

The article also points out that Noah's Arc - a huge and popular water park in the Dells is also renovating their indoor attraction called Noah's Incredible Adventure into Curse of the Crypt to appeal to guests seeking dry attractions.
