What cold winter?

They will be plenty warm.

Call the hotels and ask them.

What are the ages of those using the waterpark? The indoors are kept warm year round and it's a mild winter here besides. Lake Geneva, closer to you offers a waterpark in their resort. If they're younger I would recommend a closer to home excursion, if you want bigger like Kalahari then definitely stick with the Dells. I would imagine they're all open on the holidays (smaller places wouldn't be so likely to stay open). Just e-mail those you're interested in or call and find out specifics of those two days. I would imagine if the waterparks are open (not sure their hours of operation would be diff. or not those two days) then those that offer food would still have that option as well.

My guess is that they are all open at least normal hours for indoor waterpark and dining options. Kalahari will be less likely than Wilderness to close early since all the Kalahari waterpark stuff is under one roof. Check websites or call to be absolutely sure.

Temperatures are not an issue.

Hi John,

Wisconsin Dells waterparks are great places to visit during the holidays. The majority of resorts are open 365 days a year. In fact, many of the resorts go "all out" for the holidays. The larger waterpark resorts have many food options located right on property so there is no need to leave the resort for meals.

The indoor waterparks in Wisconsin Dells are 80+ degrees all year long so there is no need to worry about the temperatures.

Here is a list of some highlights for the holidays that the waterpark resorts are offering:

At Chula Vista Resort, kids can have breakfast with Santa or breakfast with Frosty the Snowman – tough call. Cuddle up in your p.j’s and blanky for story time in front of the grand fireplace, write a letter to Santa and decorate cookies. For the adults there are holiday cocktail demo’s – watch and learn as their expert bartenders give you ideas to dazzle your holiday guest this season. Their New Year’s Eve bash includes live music for the grown-ups and a kids’ carnival for the little ones.

At Great Wolf Lodge, they have added to Snowland with a life-sized Gingerbread House that seats up to 6 people for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Made with 1,320 pounds of sugar, 100 pounds of chocolate and 5,000 Christmas candies the delicious aromas are sure to inspire a sweet craving. Even sweeter, $20 from each reservation will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters. They’ve also rigged up snow machines in their lobby to create actual indoor snowfalls. It’s awesome! They have North Pole University for elves-in-training in their Cub Club, holiday carol sing-alongs, nightly story time with Rowdy the Reindeer and a Polar Bear Race inside their water park.in their Cub Club, holiday carol sing-alongs, nightly story time with Rowdy the Reindeer and a Polar Bear Race inside their water park.

At the Kalahari Waterpark Resort Convention Center, get your family holiday photo taken in the main lobby with a backdrop of elaborately decorated Christmas trees and elephant statues. Professional lighting and staff assistance will ensure the image is perfect for sharing with family and friends. And for those staying for Christmas in the Dells, get ready for their incredible holiday buffet. Spend New Year’s Eve on an exciting whirlwind trip that spans the globe during their Passport Party. Experience authentic foods from all corners of the world…don’t forget to get your passport stamped at each destination!

The Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort is hosting Santa every Saturday and Sunday in December – lucky Santa! Santa’s elves are also available to make deliveries and to do tuck-in services for good boys and girls visiting the Wilderness Resort throughout the Wisconsin Dells Christmas season. The resort’s Wild Canyon Café is hosting Dells holiday dinner buffets which include a totally tempting dessert table. On New Year’s Eve, they’ll be throwing their annual bash, complete with live band and party favors.

Please let us know if you have any questions or if you need further information. You can reach our Visitor Information Center at 800-22-DELLS.

Happy Holidays!
