Let me start off with what Vertical Illusions isn't. It isn't an illusion. It isn't some hyped up flash in the pan fast food tour-trap theme park ride. It's substantiative. The Wisconsin Dells itself is a kitschy touristy place that's more suited to the "Illusions"...More

My family loves going to extremes, so my husband decided we should take our son on a zip-line tour for his 4th birthday. The other zip-line tours in the area seemed to be more commercialized and less exciting than Vertical Illusions. We were so happy...More

Agree, we went Kayaking only and we were pretty tired after doing just that. I would say do one or two activities per day. The guys at VI can advise as well when you call. They are very helpful.
