4th of July At The Wilderness

Celebrate Independence Day at the Wilderness!

Join our WildKids staff at the Lost World Waterpark for a number of activities throughout the day. At dusk, get ready for our annual fireworks show! The Wilderness fireworks display is second to none in the Dells. No need to fight the traffic – our show is right here at the resort!  We launch our fireworks near our Glacier Canyon Conference Center, so the best seats will be near or around Lost World Waterpark. You provide the ooooohs and ahhhhhs and we will provide the booms!

Our fireworks show will begin at dusk on Monday, July 4th, 2022
