Attention Thrill Seekers! America’s Tallest Waterslide Opening In Wisconsin In 2024
Hitting a water park in the summer is always a fun time as there's usually something to do for all ages. Whether you have little ones who simply enjoy splashing around as they wait for a big bucket to tip and drench them with water, or you have older kids who like things more intense, everyone can have fun.
Of course, water park fun isn't limited to kids, so my teenage kids and I are all excited about what is opening in Wisconsin in 2024. If you're going to ride a waterslide, why not go for the tallest one in America?
According to TripSavvy, America's tallest waterslide can currently be found at DreamWorks Water Park at the American Dream mega-complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey. That's where you'll find the Thrillagascar and Jungle Jammer standing tall at 142 feet.
However, it won't the title long as Mt. Olympus Water and Theme Park in Wisconsin Dells is beginning construction after Labor Day this year on The Rise of Icarus, a waterslide that will stand 145 feet tall.
Of course, according to Greek mythology, Icarus soared too close to the sun on wings fastened to his body with wax. The heat of the sun ultimately melts the wax, causing Icarus to fall to the sea. Mt. Olympus promises a much happier ending at the bottom of The Rise of Icarus, which will be opening in the summer of 2024.
The new waterslide isn't the only addition visitors will find next summer at Mt. Olympus Water and Theme Park. The Rise Of Icarus is part of 5 new larger waterslides that will be opening, as well as a "major new outdoor children's play area", which will consist of an additional 10 new slides and several water play features.
I think I speak for waterslide lovers everywhere when I say I can't wait for another cold and likely snowy winter to move along so we can get to next summer already!
