We've come to noah's ark 4 out of the last 6 years. We usually go in late August so that we don't have the long lines. We pack lunches to save money and eat in the designated picnic areas or in our car. Food prices are a bit much. They have $4/day small locker rentals and $6/large locker rentals. Used to be $1 in quarters but you'd have to replug it every time you needed something. You'll also need to put down a $5 deposit for the key to the lockers. Lines were reasonable and we had a blast. Park was clean and workers were nice. They only thing that would ruin it, is a rainy day since there isn't anything to do but two attractions indoors (a 4D movie and a scarey ride). Parking if free and we received discount tickets by buying them at the Kwik Trip in our town. Better than Mt. Olympus!

We've been to Wisconsin Dells many times and had always stayed at a waterpark resort. This time we decided not to stay at a waterpark resort so that we could visit Noah's Ark instead - big mistake! Within an hour of the park opening the lines for each of the major rides were about an hour long. Much of the park was closed when we were there (in August!), wish we would have known that before we bought tickets. Many of the slides were very old or not working - this whole park needs to be renovated. Overall, they just let way too many people into the park for the number of attractions that they have or maybe we're just spoiled from visiting Great Wolf and the Wilderness where you rarely have to wait for more than 5-10 minutes except for the very biggest rides. If you love to spend your vacation waiting in line and hiking across hot tar for miles only to find that 3 out of 4 waterslides are closed - this place is great!

This is absolutely the best waterpark we've ever been to! Our family travelled 13 hours to Wisonsin Dells and we enjoyed every moment while we were there. Definitley hit the popular rides first thing in the morning such as Scorpion's Tail and Black Anaconda to avoid the big lines. Also as others stated bring your flip flops as you can put them at the bottom of the ride when you go on. Will definitely be back!

We chose Noah's Ark as part of the Passport to Savings (http://www.passporttosavings.com/), which I would recommend. However, having been here several times in the past, this was not the great park I remembered it to be. The food was hugely overpriced, such that we left the park and walked down to Dairy Queen Grill & Chill to save $20. Lockers are going to cost you, as well. Many of the slides and the big kahuna were very fun--we were disappointed at the abundance of decommissioned slides. It was kind of a downer being surrounded by a slide grave yard most of the time. The staff friendliness has really declined.
