This is a sponsored blog post. While the views expressed here are genuinely my own, consideration was paid to me by Noah’s Ark Waterpark.
I love waterparks. From the time I was little, my brother and I would wait for our family waterpark trips every summer. We visited various waterparks throughout the Chicagoland area, some in the far suburbs and a few in Wisconsin Dells. Noah’s Ark was definitely our favorite – and that was over 30 years ago! Look at what they’ve become now!
Noah’s Ark is now America’s Largest Waterpark, with more than 50 of the best slides around! There are two lazy rivers (TWO, not one, TWO) so that we parents can relax while the kids clamor back and forth to tell us about their excitement and two massive wave pools so that you can ride the waves together! If your kids aren’t quite big enough for the large slides or wave pools, there are also four kids areas that can be played in, so there is really something for everyone.
If you want some major adventure, try two spine-tingling attractions: RajaTM – The World’s Largest King Cobra, and Scorpion’s Tail, America’s first near-vertical looping waterslide!
During your downtime, you can relax in outdoor lounge chairs or have your own poolside paradise in one of 33 cabanas located throughout the park! If you’re someone who is visiting with a large group or small children in particular, those cabanas can be priceless for keeping everyone together and organized!
Wanting to change out of your swimsuit and do something on land for a bit? Try the brand new (this year!) Noah’s Ark 18-hole Safari Adventure miniature golf course or their 4D Theater with the Action Packed show “Journey 2: Mysterious Island.”
We are all busy people, so if you are wondering when might be a great time to visit, there is actually a full calendar of special events that they list, including:
- The Father’s Day Flop belly flop contest on Sunday, June 16; The most daring of Dads will put their paternal prowess on the line for a chance to win great prizes and be crowned the Big Kahuna! Plus, take advantage of $21.99 general admission Father’s Day weekend
and $2 from each ticket sold will benefit the Jimmy V Foundation.
- Noah’s Art Chalk Art Festival on July 6 & 7; Noah’s Ark becomes Noah’s ART as nearly a dozen of the nation’s best street painters transform the park’s walkways into massive one-of-a-kind works of art that appear to come to life with stunning colors and 3D effects!
Admission to the two day event is free! Access to water attractions requires a purchase of a waterslide wristband.
- Arktoberfest on August 30 & 31; Beer, food, polka and all of your favorite slides and attraction come together for one last splash of summer and a celebration of Wisconsin’s German heritage. The event features over a dozen regional beer vendors, a German-themed buffet and live entertainment. Admission to the event is free! Access to water attractions, beer sample card and buffet ticket require purchase.
Going to a waterpark can be the highlight of your vacation if you are a family who likes to be active. In fact, with this many activities, it can be your entire vacation! There is enough to do that by the end of your stay, you’ll each have your favorite ride, activity, and food. The best part is that these are the memories that become influences for your next getaway. So the next time you go there to vacation, everyone can just fall right back into the groove!
