The Top Wisconsin Dells Attractions For Every Age Group

wisconsin dells attractions by age group

One of the best aspects of Wisconsin Dells is that there’s something for everyone. No matter if you’re an adrenaline junkie, looking to lay back or craving a crazy night out – the dells has what you’re looking for.

However, as there are so many attractions in Wisconsin Dells, there is not a “one-size-fits-all” type of recommendation for visitors. What may excite one group or individual may bore another person.

So we wanted to break down the Dells by age group. Below you’ll find featured recommendations for each and every common group of visitors to Wisconsin Dells. Once you know the best attractions for your group or family, you’ll be able to better plan an awesome adventure in the dells.

Without further ado, here are the top Wisconsin Dells attractions for every age group:

Families With Small Children

If you’re coming to the dells with a small kid or two in-tow, you’ll want to focus on fun activities that are exciting, but not overwhelming. The best water park for toddlers and preschoolers is Great Wolf Lodge water Park. Many younger children also enjoy Kalahari Indoor Theme Park. If nature is more up your alley, you’ll want to take the young ones to the Wisconsin Deer Park.

Families With Teenagers

Families with teens are often looking for a little more excitement than those with smaller kids. If you’ve got some reckless teens looking to be let loose, we suggest the biggest and baddest water parks. Mt Olympus Water Parks and Noah’s Ark water Park come to mind. Many teens also get a kick out of the Tommy Bartlett Show.

Friends Under 21

If you’re visiting the dells with friends and are under 21, you already know nightlife is out of the question. Even if you stumble upon an “18+ to enter, 21+ to drink” club, you know it’s just not the same. However, there’s still plenty of fun to be had during the day while in Wisconsin Dells. Make sure to check out Noah’s Ark water Park or Mt. Olympus Water Parks, as they’ll be the most exciting for your age group. As well, most in this age group find the Bigfoot Zipline Tour to be an exciting time.

Friends Over 21

Friends over 21 visiting the dells in a group often have two things on their minds: waterparks and nightlife. Visit Mt. Olympus Water Parks or Noah’s Ark Water Park during the day. Then hit Club Wett or The Reef @ Marley’s during the night. Wisconsin Dells has great nightlife, especially in high season. Just don’t drink too much or you’ll miss the waterslides the next day. If camping is more your group’s style, you’ll want to check out Edge-O-Dells. This resort style campground features a bar and is only for individuals 21 and older.


If romance is in the air, you’ve come to the right place – as Wisconsin Dells offers a number of couples-themed hotels and packages. A few of our favorites are the Sundara Inn & Spa and Amber’s Hideaway. Both hotels are couples oriented and offer good value. Field’s at the Wilderness Restaurant is one of the many great options for a romantic dinner in the dells.
