This time we took the Wildthing on the upper dells. I like the Wildthing better than the dells jet boat. They are both similar but the music that is played and I have found the drivers have just a little more fun on the wildthing....More

My 13 year old son did this ride and he loved getting splashed. The captain was deliberately trying to get them wet as part of the fun turns and stops. I suggest a rain jacket and maybe flip flops . We did all 3 activities...More

Next time just take a nice slow tour of the Dells. It might be just as fast. While the quick turns and fast stops were fun the actual speed part of the trip was dull. I think the "Speed" was maybe 30 mph tops.

Such a blast, you will not be disappointed!! Great time! I can't say enough good things about it. Wear your swimsuit! Or clothes you don't mind getting wet in. Be prepared to get more than just splashed a little. So fun!
