Water Park Capital
of the World
If you like water and you like water parks, you've got to visit Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin this summer. The water parks around this vacation site feature extreme tubing, indoor surfing, and more than 200 water slides. The favorite? Howlin' Tornado at Great Wolf Lodge. It's a six-story whirling vortex of extreme tubing.

The Bay of Dreams is home to the tallest and longest indoor waterslides in the country, towering over 53-feet tall and running 400-feet long. Yahoo!
Also at Mt. Olympus is the Hades Roller Coaster, which features
the world's longest underground roller coaster tunnel. It also includes the steepest vertical drop of any hybrid wooden coaster in the country: a hundred-foot drop at a 65-degree angle. Ooo-whee! It opens for play on Memorial Day 2005!
