As beautiful and wondrous as nature is in Wisconsin, not everyone will enjoy it. Children in particular can get bored quickly if you take them out on a nature tour. The next time you suggest a nature tour, they might even demand to go to the waterpark instead—but not with Wisconsin Wonderland. Here, everything about the 40-minute tour will keep the whole family busy and entertained. There’s not a moment of boredom to be found when you’re surrounded by such natural beauty, and the horse-drawn carriage is like something out of a fairy tale. There are two different types of tours which we’ll cover here. The ride costs $20 for adults and $8 for children. Read on to learn about one of the top things to do in Wisconsin Dells for both adults and kids!
The pleasure of the ride comes not just from the surrounding scenery, but also from the gentle beast drawing your wagon or sleigh. If the horse gets nervous, is not well trained, or has a restless nature, then the ride will not be as smooth and pleasant as you’d expect, which says a lot about the horses at Red Ridge Riding Stable. Since they breed and train the horses themselves, the horses are all friendly, love people’s company, and they do enjoy the ride themselves.
Sleigh rides are available during the snow season. A handsome and healthy horse will draw a sleigh that can take between 10 and 15 people. Put a blanket on your legs and sip at the hot chocolate offered to you during the tour. Winter has blanketed the landscape with a white cover and the scene looks ageless. You can imagine yourself in any era in history. For thousands of years, people have used sleighs and horses to move around when the snow blocked all roads and passages. So, one way to enjoy these rides is for everyone to pretend they’ve gone back in time (and maybe to a different geographical location) and talk about that era in history. It’s both fun and educating.
When you’re vacationing with your family or a group of friends and would rather not wait for the horse rides, taking a wagon tour can be fun. The wagon takes between 10 and 15 people comfortably. The tour guide will point out the interesting aspects of the tour and tell you something about the history of the area.
