A journey upriver in the Wisconsin Dells region is a journey filled with mystery, legend and dread. Ancient demons, ghost tribes of Indians, long-dead lumberjacks and spirits from the netherworld are all said to haunt the ancient glens and dark forests.
And nowhere are the shadows more thick with fear than Cold Water Canyon.
Early Dells pioneers shunned its mysterious depths. Rivermen steered their lumber rafts well away from the dark entrance. Ancient Indians called it “the taboo land.” For it’s said that people went in but never came out again.
We’re about to put that to the test.
Join us for a 1.5-hr after-dark adventure into the canyon’s mysteries. You’ll hear dark tales of terror during your boat ride upstream — legends that may make you reconsider the next stage of the journey — an on-foot exploration into Cold Water Canyon’s dark, winding passages.
But there’s no turning back now. So sit back, relax and enjoy the ride — if you can.
