2/24/04 Drool's Out for Summer: What's Up at Six Flags?
Do you want to know what's new at the Six Flags parks for the 2004 season? Well, not a heck of a lot. Even though Six Flags won't be debuting a bunch of new high profile attractions over which we can drool, there will be some new coasters, a lot of water rides, and a great new ticket-buying option to help get us into the parks and onto the rides even faster.

Like a mirage in the parched desert (er, better make that the frozen tundra), the Kalahari Waterpark Resort's improbable indoor water park building stretches at least a couple of football fields in length along the highway that runs through Wisconsin Dells.

The Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells is one of the first indoor water parks to feature a water coaster. By using jets of water to propel two-person rafts uphill, the Botswana Blast combines a water slide attraction with a roller coaster-like experience. What a rush it is to careen around the rafters of the Kalahari's immense facility. Here's my ride review.

1/13/04 Indoor Water Parks Put the Wild in Wilderness
The sprawling Old West-themed Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells, with 443 guest rooms, 40 vacation villas, 76 condo units, and 19 cabins, is so big, it has two lobbies.

With about 160,000 square feet of water-based fun, the resort can lay claim to the Dells'--and the world's for that matter--largest indoor water park resort. Read about Wilderness, including a feature article, an overview profile of the resort, tips to save money and enjoy a Wilderness Resort vacation, a photo gallery, and a review of the Fantastic Voyage water raft ride.
