Amusement Parks, Water Parks & Zoos

Amusement Parks

Badger Sports Park
Go-cart, batting cages, and mini-golf in Appleton. Small, but very close to home.

Bay Beach Amusement Park
Inexpensive family fun in Green Bay. Tickets are only twenty cents apiece, and each ride uses 1 or 2 tickets. Classic carnival style rides, without the carnival setting.

Marion A-MAZE-ment Park
Not a traditional amusement park, but very amusing nonetheless. Find your way through the gigantic maze, or check out the climbing wall. In late October, try the maze again at night during their annual Transyl-MAZE-ia celebration!

Water Parks

Noah's Ark Water Park
America's Largest Water Park, in Wisconsin Dells! Lots of water slides, endless rivers, special water activities for younger children, wave pools, bumper boats and mini golf.

Indoor and outdoor water parks, 29 water slides, 2 endless rivers, the Midwest's Largest Tidal Wave Pool, 3 children's play areas, bumper boats, bumper cars and mini golf. Located in Wisconsin Dells.

Riverview Park and Waterworld
A combination water park and amusement park in Wisconsin Dells. Lots of go-cart (a couple different styles), amusement park rides, inner tube rides, waterslides, a wave pool and children's play areas. Also includes Bay of Dreams, billed as the America's largest indoor waterpark!

Rainbow Falls
Amusement park and water park in Plover, WI. Wave pool, water slides, endless river, mini golf, go-cart and children's play area.


Henry Vilas Zoo
A free zoo in Madison, WI. My favorite animals there? The Malayan Tapirs Rosie and Snorkel. Come and spend the day at the zoo, enjoying the animals and the beautiful location on Lake Wingra, downtown Madison.

Milwaukee County Zoo
The premier Wisconsin Zoo. Check out the Zoo news to find about about the latest additions, happenings and special events at the zoo.

NEW ZOO (North Eastern Wisconsin Zoo)
A small, beautiful zoo in Green Bay, WI. I admit, I'm prejudiced. This is a lovely place to take children for a terrific afternoon. Lots of shade, terrific exhibits, with a strong focus on animals native to Wisconsin. Their calendar of events lists lots of special events and activities.
