With summer winding down we have a fun challenge for you! Check out these ultimate slides for your adventure kids.
This park is unlike any others in our area. It is built into a hill and definitely for a thrill seeker. For maximum speed make sure you are sporting longer shorts or pants! Make sure to check out the rest of the park or walk across Trestle Trail while you are here. Another fun tip about this park… the bathrooms are open year-round.
Riverside Park, aka The Rocket Park
This slide has a pretty big hike to the top and is a little difficult for little ones under 3 but its pretty fun! We also like this park because it has the soft ground and we can walk along the water or visit a lighthouse.

N2564 US-151, Chilton, Wisconsin
One of our favorite places to visit in the fall! Meuer Farm is a family-owned working farm with 150 acres. They grow corn, soybeans and wheat, strawberries, tap maple trees for syrup and have a small herd of beef cattle. The owners, David and Leslie Meuer enjoy working the land and teaching others about farming and preservation of the land. In the fall, they are known for its corn maze that changes every year. They also have a 45 minute hayride, pumpkin patch and kids activities including this 80 ft barrel slide! Learn more about this Fall roadtrip here.
