Roadside Attractions – The Wisconsin Dells


Wisconsin Dells - Mt. Olympus - Trojan Horse


The Wisconsin Dells are a place of inspiring natural beauty. So I hear.

However, when you’re in Wisconsin and you say “The Dells”, most people assume you’re talking about something other than the miles of fantastic gorges the Wisconsin River has carved out of its sandstone banks over the centuries.

Something like one of the 20-odd waterparks that cover 70 acres. Or Monster Truck rides. Or the famous amphibious WWII Ducks.

Maybe the upside-down (not kidding) full-sized replica of the White House. (I have no idea what’s inside.)

Something like a five-story-high model of the Trojan Horse, with a roller coaster going through its belly.

Wearing a Halloween costume. (I guess it’s supposed to be a mummy of the Trojan horse?)
