1Noah’s Ark

The warm weather is on its way! So get on that diet, dig out your swimsuit, and get ready to hit the water parks for some fun in the sun! To help you with your planning, here are the nine best water parks in the U.S.

1.  Noah’s Ark

water parks

Noah’s Ark is the country’s largest water park. It’s located in the Wisconsin Dells and (as expected) it has a huge variety of water rides. This family-friendly place includes Surfing Safari, a surfing simulator, a pair of wave pools, and more than 50 slides.

The Scorpion’s Tail is an extreme ride for thrill-seekers only. This ride sends people down an almost-vertical slide into an intense inclined loop. Said by some to be “America’s most thrilling water coaster,” the Black Anaconda rushes riders through a crazy course that reaches speeds of up to 30 mph. After the rides, grab a bite at Monk’s Bar & Grill.

  1. This park closed in 2016 after a child was decapitated while on one the rides. The safety of the park was questionable from the beginning. You should remove the link to this article.

    • Hi
      This is an old article. I wrote the article but I have written about park disasters too so your comment is not specific enough for me to respond. You also fail to include any proof of your claim so without specifcs, I am afraid we can’t do anything beyond thank you for your comment and opinion of the unnamed park.

    • I live in Wisconsin and went to Noah’s Ark in 2019. Your story is wrong that never happened and it closed when the Pandemic hit in 2020

      • Hi!
        Yes! HER comment is misleading!
        Thanks for proving my point!
        She is apparently speaking about an entirely different water park BUT does not note the name. THIS is what I was trying to explain. The comment section appears under the park listed on this page and thus her comment could make people think THIS was the park that closed!
        THANK YOU for your comment and your support too, of course.

      • Hi!
        We hope you are correct and it is now open and people can return to the park and have a good time!
        Apparently, further discussion of the original confusing claim is a sore spot with one or two readers/her friends and we get profanity-laced, insulting comments that we are unable to publish. So while you and other readers are free to continue discussing it, we consider the whole confusing matter closed.
        Thank you for your support! We appreciate it!

        • The KC Schilterbahn was closed after the accident where a child was decapitated. It was reopened only to be permanently closed and has been torn down. It should never have been allowed to open as their safety protocols were weak. It’s very unfortunate a child had to die before this was realized.

          • Hello!
            Yes. There was an accident and it was closed. Then it was reopened. Much more recently, it was closed again.
            They have plans to convert the property to an amateur sports complex. Now we are all up to date. Thanks for your comment and reading this older article. Hopefully, you will read the other articles here as well!

    • The claim she made was “this park.” (Note how and where comments appear on this site.) She did not name a specific park.
      Again, this is an old article. Thank you though for taking the time to figure out just which park she was allegedly referring to though, at any rate. We will not be taking down the entire old article because of one report. These were the top 9 at the time of publication.

  2. I believe she is referring to the Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City with the death of the 10 year old child, Caleb Schwab.

    • Hi!
      As we demonstrated previously in the comments, the problem was she did not specify which park her claim referred to in her comment. As you can see in the previous comments, her lack of details confused some people.
      Thank you for your support!

  3. Wow! Way to kill a fun filled story! You know there is a million things that are awesome in this world…. Water parks being one of them!So this story was about cool water parks…. Not a story that decapitated child…. Good vibe killer!!! Just keep scrolling!!!

    • Hi!
      It has been awhile since I read about it but that sounds right to me. There was an accident. They shut down/closed the ride, reopened then closed. Last I heard–and it was awhile ago– they were turning into an amateur athletic park. Thanks for your support!
