When you live in Wisconsin, heading to Noah’s Ark at least once every summer seems like a right of passage. If you aren’t from the area, however, you may have some questions about the park.

I have compiled a list of the most asked questions when it comes to this fantastic summer destination, along with all the answers you’ve been wanting to know!

Everything You Want To Know About Noah’s Ark Waterpark

Does Noah’s Ark have an indoor waterpark?

No, you will find all your thrills outside. There are some shelter areas as well as private cabanas but expect to be under the sun for an entire day of fun.

I highly recommend reapplying sunscreen a few times during your visit, and be sure to drink water throughout the day.

Is Noah’s Ark the biggest waterpark?

According to their website, Noah’s Ark is the best and largest waterpark in Wisconsin Dells. But are they the biggest in the U.S.?

Located on 70 sprawling acres, it does lay claim to being the largest waterpark in the United States. The park was established in 1979 by the Waterman family who created a bumper boat ride and a go-kart track (then named Noah’s Incredible Adventure).

Today the park features two endless rivers, four children’s water play areas, two giant wave pools, and numerous thrilling water rides.

The waterpark also offers several attractions that can’t be found anywhere else, including RAJA: the World’s Largest King Cobra™.

How much is parking at Noah’s Ark waterpark?

All-Day General Parking is $15.00 online and $20.00 at the gate, cash only. Preferred Parking is $25.00 at the gate, cash only.

Preferred Parking is centrally located near Tadpole Bay and available on a first come, first served basis. Cash only.

Does Noah’s Ark waterpark provide towels?

You will need to bring your own towels, which many people will leave on a lawn chair by one of the wave pools or near Tadpole Bay.

If you decide to rent a private cabana where you’ll have your own shaded area to relax, you will get 2-4 cabana towels included with the rental.

Can I bring my own food and drinks?

No outside food or beverages are allowed inside the park. Noah’s Ark has a wide selection of food to choose from; such as hamburgers, french fries, pizza, salads, veggie burgers, sandwiches, hot dogs, chicken, ice cream, soft drinks, popcorn, funnel cakes, and cotton candy. Food is served throughout the park in food stands and outdoor seating areas, and if you opt for a cabana you will have a server that will deliver food right to you.

My family and I typically pack a picnic lunch and eat near our parked vehicle or in one of the provided picnic tables in the upper parking area. You are allowed re-entry so this is a great way to save a few bucks.

What are the best rides at Noah’s Ark?

Everyone has their favorites, but whenever we head out for a day of fun in the sun, we always make sure to hit certain rides no matter what.
