We have been to Wisconsin Dells several times, both as a couple and as a family. I honestly think it is one of the best places for family vacation, where everyone, kids and adults, will find something they enjoy. Wisconsin Dells is packed with activities and entertainment. Waterparks, all kinds of rides, tours, theaters, museums, golf, mini-golf, and other attractions will keep you busy for days.
One of our personal family favorites is Pirate's Cove miniature golf. You don't have to be an experienced golf player to enjoy it; in fact, you don't have to know how to play golf at all. My mother-in-law had not had any golf experience and for that reasn she wanted to skip Pirate's Cove; we had convinced her to try, and she ended up winning! The mini-golf has 4 courses, each one increasing in difficulty, so you can hone your skills as you go. The pirate theme appeals to kids, especially boys, and adults have just as much fun trying to get the ball n the hole.
Another place I would single out is Rick Wilcox live magic show. It is one of the very, very many shows Wisconsin Dells has to offer. When we went there, the theater was packed with families with children. The show was light-hearted and fun, with music, tricks, disappearance acts, and more.
Accommodations and meals are never a problem in Wisconsin Dells with its many hotels and restaurants. You can save money by staying at a smaller hotel a little farther away from all the attractions, or you can pay more but stay at the very center of everything. Just like in any tourist trap, restaurants are a bit more expensive, but there are ways as well to save if you choose carefully. I like what Wisconsin Dells has to offer and highly recommend it for family fun.
