2018 International HET Meet

Wisconsin Dells, WI (“The Waterpark Capital of the World”)

Wisconsin Dells is known as the “Waterpark Capital of the World” with the largest concentration of indoor and outdoor waterparks of any place on the planet. So, naturally when you think Wisconsin Dells, you think water, water and more water. Water parks, water slides, water rides and the fun and adventure you can have in the sun and in the water. It will be a great place to bring the kids and grandkids giving us time with two of our favorite things Hudsons and family. In fact, our theme will focus on Hudsons as the Ultimate Family Car.

While the waterparks will be a favorite with the young and young at heart, there are plans to include the kids and grandkids (or great grandkids) in some special activities. It is only fitting that the host hotel, Chula Vista Resort is the most complete family resort in the Wisconsin Dells. Much like French Lick, host of the 2014 International Meet, Chula Vista is truly a destination resort. It has remained a family owned resort for 65 years now. It prides itself on offering “the best of both worlds” adventure and relaxation.

The word “Chula” means beautiful in Spanish. That is where the Resort and its scenic location on hundreds of acres along the Wisconsin River with a beautiful river walk and walking trails is different from other Wisconsin Dells waterparks. For the mild side there is a giant outdoor hot tub set amongst the 100 foot Norway Pines with views of the Wisconsin River, golf on their 18 hole course, relax with a Swedish massage at Spa del Sol or simply enjoy outdoor dining while watching the sunset. Just want to chill and enjoy our Hudson made autos? In this beautiful setting, that works too.

The Resort has 640 luxurious guestrooms, suites, villas and condos. It is a big property so, for those wanting or needing it, there will be scheduled shuttle service between the hotel and the HET reserved parking and swap space areas. The exceptional Junior Suites or Fairway Villas room rate includes the daily resort fee and 6 waterpark passes for $139 and is good for 3 days before and 3 days after the meet. These rooms have a refrigerator, microwave, sofa, table and chairs for eating and a patio or balcony. There are also family suites which sleep up to 8 and have a rate of $179 including 6 waterpark passes. If your clan is too large for these rooms, or you are just looking for luxury other rooms including 2 & 3 bedroom condos are available at significantly discounted rates and include 8 waterpark passes. If your room accommodates more than the number of people that the contract provides waterpark passes for, additional passes can be obtained for the entire week for an additional $10. As this July meet is approaching the Dells high season, make reservations early to ensure you get the category of room you want. Reservations are being accepted starting after the 2016 Chattanooga International Meet, please call (844) 395-8078 and use the NEW Booking ID E27838-Code HET 2018.  Never been to a Hudson, Essex, Terraplane International Meet?  The Chicago Milwaukee Chapter invites you to come get your feet wet!  Remember you must indicate HET2018 when making your reservation.
