Rides, Slides, Spills, & Thrills: Noah’s Ark Waterpark


I received compensation for this post, all opinions are my own.


My two older son’s have summer birthdays and will turn eleven and eight respectively.  I occurred to me the other day that my time with them is starting to essentially countdown. Yes, I have lots of years left with them at home. Yes, counting down can be somewhat dramatic. But to a mom sometimes each birthday can be a year closer to them moving out. It’s important during these years to have experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. For my boys Noah’s Ark is a destination that incites cheers and family stories. 

We visited Noah’s Ark for the first time last summer and had an amazing experience. When I mentioned visiting the water park again this summer, my boys broke out into cheers of happiness. Quadzilla, Congo Bongo they started to list off the rides they HAD to visit. 


A little more experienced this year, we came stocked with water shoes, sunscreen, and towels. The tag line for Noah’s Ark is “America’s Largest Waterpark”. It’s no joke. There is so much to see and do here. We set up camp in our private cabana off of the The Wave and then set out to visit our favorite rides and to try some new ones. 

Last year we loved Congo Bongo, Quadzilla, Paradise Lagoon, and Big Kahuna. This year we loved Congo Bongo, Quadzilla, Paradise Lagoon, and Big Kahuna. Yeah, it’s hard to break old habits or to step away from such fun. There are tons of rides that we haven’t visited either because they are a bit too much for my fellas age group or because we just didn’t have time. I think my biggest learning about Noah’s Ark this year is that you need more than one day! Hey, if we are going to make family memories we might as well do it big!:) 





Visiting the Wisconsin Dells is such a great short trip from the Minneapolis area. I know that there are water parks in the Twin Cities, but to my family Noah’s Ark is our park. It’s the biggest and it’s definitely the best in their eyes. Even Nana joined us for the fun, she is riding Congo Bongo below. 

This year there were new cabanas and handy electronic lockers. The new system means you don’t need to have a key dangling from your arm anymore, hooray! And for all of you concerned about safety Noah’s Ark has received the Top Award for Aquatic Safety every year since 1995!
