We are excited to announce a NEW waterslide experience and a NEW attraction to the Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells.  Claim Jumper Challenge, powered by Slideboarding is a mix of waterslides and video games all in one.  Room Escapes by D.O.A. is a real-life, interactive, mind-intensive and highly strategic team-building exercise.  Both are scheduled for completion in December, 2015
Claim Jumper Challenge. Powered by Slideboarding

We’re super excited to announce that starting this September we will be converting two of our existing tube slides in the Klondike Kavern Indoor Waterpark into state-of-the-art, interactive Slideboarding systems. The Claim Jumper Challenge will offer a real life gaming experience within a waterslide.  

The slideboards resemble surfboards with handles that riders sit on. On each of the handles, there are two colored buttons that serve as the game’s controllers. As riders adventure down the waterslide, they encounter a series of flashing red, yellow, green and blue lights. The goal is to press the colored button on your slideboard that corresponds with the colored light that is lit at the exact time your board passes under it. If it is done at the correct time a rider will get the maximum amount of points and the handles of your board will vibrate to alert the rider of their bullseye accuracy. A leaderboard in the waterpark will let guests see how they did and where they rank against other riders. As riders get better at Slideboarding, new and challenging levels will be unlocked.

  • Coming in December
  • Only one of its kind in the Midwest
  • Leaderboard in the waterpark
  • Integrated Mobile App
Room Escapes by D.O.A.

After seeing some really amazing, interactive, real-life room escape games featured on The TODAY Show, The Conan O’Brien Show, The Big Bang Theory and The Bachelorette, we’ve decided to add this hugely popular phenomena to our Wilderness on the Lake property!

The two Room Escapes by D.O.A., The Hotel and The Basement, will build upon a series of real-life incidents that occurred during the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. The Hotel will feature a recreation of its lobby and will be integrated with clues and puzzles to help the visitors find their way out! The Basement will be designed to inspire a mindset of urgency and confusion as participants navigate the layered twists of the room while spontaneous audio, visual, and animated objects will invade their senses.

Margarita’s Swim-Up Bar

Take a dip and get a drink at Margarita’s Swim-Up Bar, an adults-only, indoor/outdoor pool, which is located in the Wild WaterDome and New Frontier Waterparks. Spanning 1,400 square feet, the bar can accommodate up to 88 guests over the age of 21, and  features an inviting tropical theme complete with a pergola and unique conversation areas.
