This Water Park Will Creep Your Kids Out

Screams at water parks are usually indicative of kids having a great time on waterslides, but at The Polynesian Resort Hotel in Wisconsin Dells, we're guessing the screams are terror-induced. The indoor water park here (built in the 90s) was one of the first in the area, but it hasn't been updated since. Spooky and crumbling decor includes a racist scene of Polynesian tribespeople (with melted faces) devouring a human skeleton, dirty pirates with missing hands, and a giant frog with an extended tongue that serves as a slide. Thankfully, the resort is undergoing extensive renovations that should be completed this year. We're hoping the mutilated pirate body gets the old heave-ho!
