Any August Family vacation recommendations?

We are looking forward to our first family vacation to the Dells this August. We have rented a cabin for a week and it'll be myself, my Fiance, our 2.5 year old daughter and 8 year old nephew. Just looking for recommendations on age appropriate activities, and which waterparks would be best for children this age?

Also any tips on the best place to buy (discounted) attraction/waterpark tickets? Is the $20 Dells coupon book worth it, or no?

1. Re: Any August Family vacation recommendations?

If you aren't staying at a waterpark resort, your choices will be limited as several are not open to non-guest vistors. The other waterparks you could purchase one-day passes to would be Kalahari, Chula Vista and Mt. Olympus. Mt. Olympus has lots to do for kids such as gocarts, wooden roller coasters, rides, slides, pools, etc. Noah's Ark has water slides, some extreme, lazy river, areas for younger kids, but no coasters or gocarts. Knuckleheads is an indoor activity park for kids and you can buy a wristband for the best deal. Kalahari also has an indoor theme park so check that out on line to see if the rides would be something that would work for your kids. Tommy Bartlett Ski Show may be something you would like and there is also the Tommy Bartlett Exploratory which is an interactive science exploratory. Lots of mini golf to choose from - Timber Falls used to have a little petting zoo with some goats, chickens etc. Not sure if they have it this year.
