Summer will be here before we know it and taking your kids on a fun trip to a waterpark is a great way to welcome the warm weather and have some fun family time. The Midwest is one of the greatest places to be for the best waterparks because the Wisconsin Dells houses some of the best waterparks in the nation. Looking to take a trip this summer? Here are the top five water parks in the midwest.
  1. Kalahari Resort // A part of the Wisconsin Dells family Kalahari is home to some of the best water rides that the Wisconsin Dells has to offer. Located in Wisconsin Dells, WI Kalahari is a full service resort featuring two water parks; one indoor and one outdoor. The Master Blaster is a ride for those ambitious enough to ride its 570 foot course. This water park also has fun activities for more tame park goers like the crocodile creek, a fun activity pool.
  2. Noah’s Ark // America’s largest waterpark also belongs to the Wisconsin Dells family. Noah’s Ark is filled with some of the best water attractions such as the Black Anaconda that is over ¼ mile long and reaches 30 mph!
