They tell you you will get wet. They ain't kidding. We took the speed boat ride on the lower Wisconsin River on a warm July afternoon. The driver cautioned us that we would get wet and to hold on to the rails at all times. He announced the first boat maneuver which left all of us wet. After that he... More

I came here with my boyfriend who is very hard to entertain at times. He loved the ride and the silly puns the captain makes! You do get wet, but there are containers for your belongings on the boat. It's a beautiful ride through the upper dells along with a thrill ride.

We always have the best time on the Wild Thing! It's great for all ages, especially on a hot summer day. All of the staff, from the ticket booth, to the bus drivers, to the boat drivers all are so friendly and kind. They also have a bar, snacks and gift shop with lots of cool items and photo ops....

This was the best thing we did on our Bigfoot Tours. I would go again in a heartbeat! Plan on getting SOAKED! Fun, Fast Boat. Great Tour. Our captain was funny and the music on the boat was great! Would do this every time I visited the Dells!

If you are looking for a great time other than the waterparks book a tour with this company. We were a group of 19, ranging 6-55. EVERYONE had a blast and got SOAKED. Captain Kurt was the best! Gave us a fast and fun ride with a bit of dells history. Sit more towards the middle rows for the most... More

Captain Kurt was very entertaining and gave us an incredible ride. It was a very hot day and we definitely got wet. He was also very informative with some of the history and gave us a fantastic ride. Went with my two grandsons ages 6 and 9 and they had a blast

Plenty of power under the hood. Driver knows how to have a good time, but he should stop telling jokes.
