Best Outdoor Waterpark/Hotel for family with teens?

We're looking to book a long weekend this summer at the Dells, and are trying to figure out which hotel/waterpark offers the best outdoor options? It's looking like the Wilderness has the largest outdoor park, but would love to hear how people think it compares to the other big ones, like Kalahari, Great Wolf, etc.

Thanks for your help!

there's a lot of great info. breakdown above that may help you decide in addition to their websites and reviews.

One thing about Wilderness is it's spread out...some are bothered by this others are not. I hear Kalahari recommended more overall for the teen age but both have lots to offer.

As part of the Wilderness Resort they now have ziplining:

Part of the reason Kalahari is favored for teens -- the other activities on site for later in the evening like multi-screen movie theater, indoor theme park. Outdoor parks close by 8 -- that's a lot of time before bedtime for teens.
