Wilderness Hotel & Resort Review
Editor’s Review of Wilderness Hotel & Resort
Lisa Meyers McClintick
The Wilderness Territory claims to be the largest water park resort in the world. Small wonder. It sprawls across 600 acres multiple water parks, and several resorts within one complex. There are 444 guest rooms, plus condos, villas and cabins with some partly on Lake Delton.
It's often a top choice for travelers to Wisconsin Dells, which claims to be "The Waterpark Capital of the World." Families could spend a week and never visit the same water park twice. Indoor and outdoor water parks spread throughout the property, totaling more than 500,000 square feet. Different themes fuel young imaginations, whether it's the frontier, the Wild West or dinosaurs.
The one that makes this water park resort stand out ... more among others -- especially on cold winter days -- is the sunny, clear-roofed Wild WaterDome. Anchored by a huge wave pool with up to five-foot waves, families can spread out on recliners beneath tropical trees and get a tan.
'Tweens and teens also love the go-carts, arcade, mini golf and zip-line, which is one of the Dells' newer attractions and another feature that makes the Wilderness stand out. For adults, there are outdoor pools, golfing, Field's at the Wilderness Steak House and one of the area's most buzzed-about place for pampering, Sundara Spa. less
