I still think the Dells are cool. It's campy, and it doesn't hide it. It's pretty much the same as it was in the 60s and 70s, and I think that's kind of cool, even though a lot of the "entertainment" is horrendously outdated. It depends what you're looking for, I guess. Mo and I usually go early in June before it's kid central. It's all about waterparks, mini golf, and Paul Bunyan's. It's a fun 2 to 3-day place for us. Any longer than that, and i'd go stir crazy. Off-season is a good idea.
