Claim Jumper Challenge Powered by Slideboarding

New in 2016, Slideboarding, the interactive gaming waterslide. 

Our new Slideboard rides are OPEN!  We have converted two of our tube slides in the Klondike Kavern Indoor Waterpark into state-of-the-art, interactive Slideboarding systems. The Claim Jumper Challenge offers a real-life gaming experience…Within a waterslide! 

The Slideboards resemble short surfboards with handles. On each of the handles, there are two colored buttons that serve as the game’s controllers. As riders shoot down the waterslide sitting on their Slideboard, they encounter a series of flashing red, yellow, green and blue lights. The goal is to press the colored button on your slideboard that corresponds with the colored light that is lit at the exact time your board passes under it. If it is done at the correct time, the rider will get the maximum amount of points and the handles of their board will vibrate to alert the rider of their bullseye accuracy. A leaderboard in the waterpark lets guests see how they did and where they rank against other riders. As riders get better at Slideboarding, new and challenging levels will be unlocked.

Riders must be at least 42″ tall to ride and weigh under 300 lbs.

Room Escapes by D.O.A.

Room Escapes by D.O.A. is a hit!

After seeing some really amazing, interactive, real-life room escape games featured on The TODAY Show, The Conan O’Brien Show, The Big Bang Theory and The Bachelorette, we’ve added this hugely popular phenomena to our Wilderness on the Lake property!

The two Room Escapes by D.O.A., The Hotel and The Basement, build upon a series of real-life incidents that occurred during the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. The Hotel features a recreation of its lobby and will be integrated with clues and puzzles to help the visitors find their way out! The Basement is designed to inspire a mindset of urgency and confusion as participants navigate the layered twists of the room while spontaneous audio, visual, and animated objects will invade their senses.
