Groupon has two excellent deals up today for two great waterpark resorts in Wisconsin Dells!
First, Kalahari resort is $119.00/night for a one-night stay and $99.00/night for a 2-night stay. Both offers are for a room that sleeps 4. It includes both indoor water park passes and indoor theme park passes. There is a $12.99 resort feel you'll pay at check-in. This offer has dates in September, with a few dates into October.
And, Great Wolf Lodge is $149.00/night for a one-night stay in a suite that sleeps 6. It includes 6 water park passes and a $25 resort credit for meals or shopping at the resort! There is a $19.99 resort fee you'll pay at check-in, so your resort credit almost makes that a wash. This offer has dates through most of November, including Columbus Day weekend!
Both of these are great prices for these resorts!
UPDATE: Great America extended this offer now through 9/3! And, if you use Discover Card to pay, you can buy ONE pass at $61.99 without having to buy the four-pack. Select the 4-pack, then enter code DISCOVERGOLD, and it will let you select how many season passes you want at that price.
You do have to pay with Discover to use this code.
Also, if you are a Discover card holder, use this link to add the 5% cash back bonus to your card BEFORE you buy, and you'll get an extra 5% back on your SixFlags.com pass purchase. That drops each pass to $58.89!
