Adventures & Sports Venues

Ready to take your Sauk County experience out on a limb? Literally? With a vast crop of adventure and sports venues offering thrills of a lifetime across the county, you’re bound to find an activity that excites.

Soar above and through the treetops with Bigfoot Zipline Tours, float like a paragliding butterfly with the help of Compass Airsports, and challenge your friends to a puzzling undertaking at Dells Escape Rooms.

Arcades & Casinos

Calling all gamers and high rollers! When it comes to casinos and arcades, you’ve hit the jackpot in Sauk County.

Ask your inner child to come out and play Frogger, Pac-Man, and Donkey Kong at Asgard’s Underworld Arcade Bar. Suit up in virtual reality garb for an experience unlike any other at the VR Universe Arcade. Or go all-in at the Ho-Chunk Casino.

A night of fun you won’t soon forget? It’s in the cards.

Movie Theaters

When you want to get away from it all and escape into another dimension entirely, then head to the movies.

Staying true to the classic movie theater experience — red velvet seating, huge tubs of buttery popcorn, the sound of the projector behind you — AMC has a Desert Star location. Meanwhile, the Big Sky Drive-In Theatre, one of the last drive-in theaters in Wisconsin, promises a cinematic night under the stars for the whole family.

Bonham Theatre & Video, a time capsule that offers first-run movies alongside DVD, Blue-ray, and video game rentals, is always a solid choice. Yes, DVD rentals, you read that right.

Performing Arts Venues

All of Sauk is a stage, and you and yours are the players. When it’s a classical Shakespearean play, a booming symphony, or an elevated opera you desire, Sauk County is ready to answer the curtain call.

Get a taste of the performing arts at American Players Theatre, where Sense & Sensibility, Hamlet, and A Raisin in the Sun are just a sampling of what you can expect. Movies, culture, and classical music are on the menu at the historic, renovated AI. Ringling Theatre. And budding thespians are taking the stage, performing children-, teen-, and adult-focused productions at the Sauk Prairie Theatre Guild.

Now, to make it a double feature or not to make it a double feature. That is the question.

Live Music Venues

What’s a day in Sauk County without a little music? Soundtrack your vacation, trip, or night out with the sounds of Sauk. We have venues pumping with live music ranging from indie rock to bluegrass to pitch-perfect Americana.

Not to be missed: The Sh*tty Barn, an intimate little spot that’s, well, the you-know-what when it comes to welcoming the hottest indie acts in town. Also, the Crystal Grand Music Theatre offers a concert experience unlike any other; it’s big enough to attract headliners, but small enough that you can actually see them.

And then there’s the Slowpoke Lounge and Cabaret, a low-key respite with cocktails, conversation, and cabaret. Ditch the rest of your to-do list; your night’s set.
