... a turnstile, drove down a parallel track to the end of the train and hitched itself up there for the return trip. Very cool.
After that,we went into the town of Wisconsin Dells. The city takes its name from the French word "dalles" which means narrows and refers to the way the Wisconsin River flows through the narrow gorges in this area. The Dells are scenic, glacially formed gorges that feature ...

In case you're wondering, we're getting about 11 miles to the gallon. Yikes! But no surprise. We didn't do anything today but drive and stop briefly at a few rest stops.

After dinner when it cleared up a little we finally thought to pull out the "geyser experiment" (diet coke and mentos!) that we had been planning to do at Yellowstone but forgot! The kids thought it was great watching it erupt and loved seeing Bru run before he got covered in Coke. We've been lucky that we haven't had too many rain days. I think we were all pretty glad to just veg ...
Historical Traveler Reviews RainTree Resort & Conference Center Wisconsin Dells
RainTree great for kids under 12!
We stayed at the RainTree for one night. It was perfect. Our 3 kids (4, 6, & 9) loved it, and that is what our trip was all about, pleasing them. The water activities weren't geared towards teenagers, but more towards ages 12 & under (just as their web site explains). The staff was wonderful, and everything was perfect in our room. Our initial plan was to stay somewhere different each year at the Dells, but until our kids are older, we'll be just fine staying here again!
I just returned from a three night stay at the Raintree Resort in Wisonsin Dells with my husband, 4 year old, 18 month old and my parents. We were there July 17, 18 & 19, 2004. We even got a big family room with an extra king bed at no charge. The room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. Even with all of the kids on staff working over the summer, they were very professional and helpful. The kids had a great time just hanging out at the pool. The only bad thing about the hotel was our room was facing the main road with a night club right in front of the hotel that was blasting music until about 2:30 am every night. The person at the front desk told us that club was going away in September but because of that we had trouble getting to sleep. Other than that, I would consider staying here again. The location was very convenient too.
We just returned from a 24-hour stay at the Raintree. We have a 2-year old and a 6-month old and can't imagine that they could have had more fun in 24 hours. This place is perfect for kids 4 and under and there are two indoor slides for older kids and adults. The weather for July was absolutely awful, but the indoor waterpark was just what we needed. I echo the comments about cleanliness, the Raintree is quite well maintained and obviously has a great staff. I wish that it was a bit cheaper, as we payed $135 for two queens - - we will definitely be back in the future, especially when there is a period of special rates.
A great place for kids and adults
This was a great place to stay during our visit to the Dells. Our children 15 months and 3 years old just loved the waterpark. It is very hard to find things geared toward the younger children. It was a joy to see the children having so much fun. This was fantastic. The room was very clean and the staff very nice, and it was also quiet. We will be visiting again. stayed May 2003
The Best Hotel Ever!!!!!!
The Rain Tree hotel was the cleanest hotel that I have ever been to.
The people were extremely friendly and my stay there was great. The full continental breakfast tasted better than mine and the water was clean, crisp, and clear. I would advise you to check out this hotel if you want to feel like royalty and pay a little of nothing.
Our terrible stay!
Our stay was Terrible our room was a suite across from the Ice Machine because of this we got no sleep!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At TWO in the morning two guys filled Two COOLERS full of ICE and woke us up!The A/C smelled like a DIRTY DIAPER, the Janitor lady was no help she just yelled at us for opening the window to get rid of the smell!!!!!!! (Stay away from her!) And the Non-Smoking rooms smelled like Smoke. The Hotel room was very DARK and DINGY. The Hotel was Terrible and we will not be going back!
We just had our first trip to the Wisconsin Dells since the indoor waterparks became all the rage and it was wonderful. We took our four small grandchildren (6 yrs. and under) and even the 15 month old had a wonderful time at the waterpark. The resort was very clean and nice and accommodating. I was rather nervous about picking a place sight-unseen but I did a lot of research on this web site and others and was quite pleased - and even surprised - with our choice.
Great place for everyone!!!!!
This is one of the greatest hotel i have ever been too! you never get bored because your so occupied with everything that they have there to do! My doughter (13) loved it because she could sit on the stools in the water and drink a coke and feel very special and my son (16) would just love to play the arcade and swim around! My husband and I just loved to watch the kids have a great vaction and have drinks and lay in the hott sun!!! (also the just take a break from hard work!) I think this is a great trip for anyone of all ages and That it will relax you all and bring all close as a family!!!
Very Clean Hotel
We stayed at the Raintree, the week of July 21st, it was a very nice place, I have been to the dells many times and have regretted my selections, but this hotel was very nice, staff was friendly, rooms were very clean, and it is a nice distance to the parkway. My two little ones had a ball in the waterpark, it was small but they did not care, it was lots of fun. We will definately go back. I thanked them for keeping such a good place.
FINALLY SOMEWHERE CLEAN!!!!
After arriving in the dells to a very poor quality hotel and having to get our money back for that reservation, we were forced to look at several other places before deciding to stay at raintree. Other places smelled and were very dirty. It was a great relief to open the room door and not smell mildew, smoke or urine!!
