My 19yr old Daughter and I just got back from Our yearly Dells trip, 2nd year in a row, We again stayed at the Wilderness, as usual, it was wonderful!! The place is spotless at all times, the staff is constantly cleaning everywhere, even the
parking lot! The staff is especially friendly, even when a fee was charged to our room, that wasn't ours, it was taken off with no problem, check your bill before you leave!! The new Tsunami outdoor wave pool is beyond believable!! We could have spent our whole trip there!! The wilderness offers something for every age!! The wilderness is a bit pricey, but, you never have to leave, considering the price of the other water parks it is worth it!! You can now order Pizza to your room from Sarento's. A 16inch cheese and saugs was $16 and
very good! Not a Chiago pizza, but very good! The Kodiak Kanteen has everything you could want, but it is expensive! We got 4 dipndots(we're addicted!) 2 btls of water and a juice, $22!!!
Our "fancy" meal was at Fields. It was wonderful!! A peacful way to have an elegant dinner! the steak melts in your mouth, they treat you like royalty! Not a place for young children. Very expensive, very worth it!! We will go back every year! We also at at Applebees, in town, food was very good, Service was not, My daughters sierra mist (soda) was pure seltzer water and it took forever
to get a waitress' attention, they were not very busy, but the attitude was as if we were bothering them. The food was very good, price was good, but, I wont go back. Culvers was Great! The highlite was Dennys Dinner!! The treated us like
family, only better, happy, friendly, very very good food, fast,and excellant prices. It was also realy neat to be in, it was like a rock and roll diner.
Outside it is statues of James Dean, Marylin, The Blues bros. and Elvis, Yes, We took cheesy pics in front!! As last year We did the Jet boats!! Its like a tour and a thrill ride all in one!! Not for small children. Our favorite is the Lost canyon tour. Even though its the same thing every year, it is just so nice, the guides are funny, This year We had Matt, the scenery is breathtaking! It is also very reasonable. $7 plus the "if you want to buy something" part of every Dells tour.But the way Matt did it was no pressure and very nice! This year We tried horse back riding at Canyon Creek stables. My experiences in the past were awful! This was Great! They take the time to size you to a horse, make sure you are all strapped in, explain how to guide your horse, everything. Our guide was great, the ride was at least an hour long, very scenic, The old west town you go thru isnt what you are led to believe it will be, cheesy, but its the Dells!! Price was abt $35 for two of us. Anyone can do this, even Me, No expience necessary! Might be boring for expierinced rider, But We loved it!! Parsons Trading Post is a must! Its like being in a museum where you can buy things, prices are good, the owner is very friendly, He even wished us a safe ride home! We had a Great time from start to finish!! If you are like us, and forget things
there is a Walgreens in town, just like home. We also found a Super Walmart!! Good to know!
Can't wait till next year!! Great Mother Daughter trip, Do need to warn you about the Sundara Spa, went there last year, it was horrible. upppity. snobby. treated us like dirt, acted like we did not belong there, was very beautiful, but would never ever go back!!! Didnt mean to end on a bad note, just didn't want to forget!
Till next year,
