Some attractions of The Ark Area

Flash Flood.

Will you get wet? Oh, yes. Very, very wet.

Go down the waterfall in a boat, creating a gigantic wave and getting into it!

The water splashes in a mammoth wave in all directions!

When you get off the boat, hurry up to a bridge to get wet again from the splash of a next boat!

Curse of the Crypt.

This is not a wet ride, don't believe it and go in with your shoes on.

It was somewhat boring, but there is a very interesting experience at one point of the walk, so go there, you'll find what it is!

I'll give a little hint- you will go through an amazing labyrinth with lots of other people. Try to find your way out!

Some attractions of The Plunge Area

Black Anaconda.

Black Anaconda is America’s Longest Watercoaster (over 1/4-mile long),

It is combination of water slide and rollercoaster.

Start at 30 miles per hour. Then defy gravity as rushing waters push you up the creature’s six humps and lash you about in its dark coils.

Black Anaconda lets you experience thrills on a whole new scale!

Sting Ray.

First, you will experience that vertical drop… well...

then you'' slide back!

It is not as scary as it looks!

As the only double slide of its kind in the country, you can choose to ride single or double, facing your partner

(so you can watch each other scream!)

The Scorpion Tail!

The ride that will turn your idea of waterslides upside down.

Ten stories high. 400-feet long.

An initial drop that sends you plummeting down at more than 50-feet per second.

Oh, and did we mention America’s first nearly vertical waterslide loop?

Meet the Scorpion’s Tail.

The Scorpion Tail!

Some attractions of The Paradise Lagoon Area

Paradise Lagoon.

There are dozens of ways to have fun in one pool.

  • 2 lily pad walks.
  • 2 cable drops.
  • 3 cannonball chutes.
  • 2 body slides.
  • A jumping rock.
  • A shallow swim area.
  • A whole lot to do in just one pool area.

That’s why it is “Paradise”. Paradise for kids!

Tadpole Bay.

An island of fun for the little ones!

Noah’s Ark offers lots of attractions for the little squirts!

The Tadpole Bay Kiddie Playzone features

  • a giant 8-foot dump bucket,
  • 4 kiddie water slides
  • over 50 different swings,
  • dancing springs and more!

All the action stays in one area designed for maximum visibility and safety.

Proved: parents love Tadpole Bay as much as kids!

Some attractions of The Wave Area.

Hooligan's Harbor.

Arrrrrrr you ready to captain a pirate ship?

You and your kids can choose your own remote-controlled pirate schooners, then battle it out on the high seas. Requires token purchase, not included with admission.


Part octopus. Part submarine. All fun.

A lot for your little explorers to discover while playing in this unique kids activity center.

And it is all about FUN!

  • Kids can climb the tentacles of the octopus,
  • peek out the portholes of the submarine,
  • frolic under the water geysers,
  • make water shooting fight and more!

Some attractions of The Endless River Area.

Time Warp.

Slide through the portal into the World’s Largest Bowl Ride!

Time Warp is the thrilling water ride that throws time for several loops.

Wave goodbye to the present as your four-person raft sets off into the Great Unknown.

Then plunge into the warp at hyper-speed and take a wild spin through time and space.

Just hold on tight. Time definitely flies here.

Ah, did I forget to mention that your time journey is in complete darkness?

Congo Bongo

The family adventure with a twist. More than 700 feet of twists and fun.

Round up the family and set out for adventure on your circular 5-person raft.

Everyone can clearly see everyone else, so do your best not to scream when the raft twists and you go backward into that hard turn in the rapids!

Unforgettable ride for the whole family!

Some attractions of The Big Kahuna Area

Dark Voyage.

You can go with your entire family or friends on Dark Voyage.

4-person raft will take you into total darkness.

You are going to encounter the twisting,


mammoth rapids

and other surprises within.

And don’t be afraid to scream all you want , nobody will see you!

At the end of the journey enjoy a total shower!

Big Kahuna.

It’s not easy to get to the ocean in Wisconsin Dells. So they brought the ocean to Wisconsin Dells!

In the Big Kahuna Wave Pool, you can bodysurf ocean-sized waves, peaking every 10 minutes.

Tubes are also available for those who prefer to soak in the rays as well as the waves.

Bodyguards on duty are keeping an eye on you closely.

10 minutes of waves give a way to 10 minutes of quite water and you can just enjoy your suntanning session.

Big Kahuna Kiddie Area.

The Big Kahuna Kiddie Area is like a waterpark within a waterpark, designed just for the younger ones.

And parents will love it, too, because the area is ringed with comfy beach chairs that offer great views of the entire playground.

Adventure River.

Don’t get too comfortable enjoying your lazy journey. Pesky geyser or cascading waterfall are waiting for you around a corner. Enjoy the trip alone, in a single-person raft, or experience it together on a family-size tube.

Lost flips-flops are decorating utility shed.

      Thank you, Sheila, and I know what you mean about the slides. I myself was enjoying Lazy Rivers, Wave Pool and mild rides. It's more of a psychological barrier, because all the slides are completely safe.

      I've never been able to figure out where people get the nerve to go on those scary water slides. Just looking at your pictures of them makes my heart race. Scrolling on, though, I saw lots I'd enjoy at Noah's Ark, so it's not only for the daring. Very good article.

      God does not approve!

      Genesis 9:22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.

      Genesis 9:23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.

      Genesis 3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

      Genesis 3:10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

      Genesis 3:11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
