From Lake Delton all the way to the banks of the Wisconsin River, the biggest resorts in Wisconsin Dells will be throwing the hottest New Years Eve parties around. The best part? There is both family friendly and 21+ fun to choose from!

The Wilderness Resort is bringing in 2013 at their Glacier Canyon Event Center. Dividing the adult fun up into two ballrooms, you can choose which one you like best based on your preferred New Year’s Eve playlist. So don’t stop moving to the beat between 9:30 pm and 1 am.  The family movie room will be playing movies all night long so families that want to be together can enjoy the New Year with a big screen and some of the kids’ favorite flicks. Tickets include: 2 drink tickets for adults, party favors, and entrance to both parties. Call 800-867-9453 to ensure your spot at the New Year’s bash. Hint: advanced tickets are cheaper!

Kalahari’s party will keep you busy all day! On the 31st you will be given 18 quests to complete. Can you finish them before midnight? Test your skills and find out. If you complete the tasks by 11:00 you can hand in your answers at the door to the party to be eligible for amazing prizes! The main ballroom will host their family fun New Year’s Eve bash for party animals of all ages. For those 21 and up, come be wild at Kahunaville! Hint: they may or may not be giving away a grand prize of a flat screen TV or a PS3. Prior to all of these, celebrate the last day of 2012 with the meal of a lifetime at Kalahari’s New Year’s Eve buffet.  Reservations are strongly suggested and can be made by calling 608-254-5466.

Mt. Olympus will also be feasting with an incredible meal at Gladiator’s Bar. Choose from three mouth watering entrees to get you and your family geared up for their New Year’s Eve bash in the Hotel Rome lobby. This party is free with stay and includes a live DJ, free party favors and of course champagne! Those 21 and up can catch the free shuttle over to Club Wett for a bit of Vegas with your 2013!

Your kids will be some tuckered out little pups after bringing in 2013 at Great Wolf Lodge’s Snowball! Starting at 8 pm, nightly activities include: a duck race, a magic show, face painting, a balloon and caricature artist, movin’ and groovin’ dance party and last but not least, laser tag and blacklight mini golf! Rest assured this is a New Year’s Eve bash your kids will howl with glee about for months! Most of these activities will take place in the Grand Lobby. Enjoy a family feast at their New Year’s Eve buffet from 4 to 10 pm. If you have 8 or more in your party be sure to make a reservation at 704-549-8206.

What could be better than a free champagne toast at midnight? How about the rest of Chula Vista’s New Years Eve party, unlimited beer, soda and rail drinks from 8:30 pm to 2 am! The Unexpected will be playing to get the party started and keep the beat going well into the New Year.  A DJ will also be playing everyone’s favorite songs and artists from years past. There will be a separate party and DJ for the little ones including: a goldfish toss, cakewalk, treats, and endless prizes to be won!

So no matter where in Wisconsin Dells you and your family end up this New Year’s you know that everyone of all ages will be in for an incredible end to 2012 and even better start to 2013!
