WISCONSIN — Wisconsin Dells resorts now have their eyes set on reopening after the Supreme Court overturned the Safer at Home order extension.

Following the decision from the Supreme Court, some Wisconsin Dells resorts began making reservations.

As kids wrap up their school year, the resorts are busy preparing to open for the summer season.

According to WMTV, owner of Mt. Olympus Water and Theme Park Nick Laskaris says he is now taking reservations, and plans to kick off the season on May 26.

Laskaris is planning to cut his capacity in half in order to protect the health and safety of visitors and staff. The resorts also plan to practice social distancing.

There are no specific guidelines set for Wisconsin Dells, as it extends across four counties with various different guidelines in place.

Great Wolf Lodge is also preparing to reopen, however they have their eyes set on some date in June.
