Wisconsin Dells, WI Amtrak station serves the theme and waterpark park town right in the middle of Wisconsin. The Amtrak Station is located within walking distance of the various shops and amusements in this town. The Amtrak station consists of a old fashioned retro-style looking station building, that infact only opened in 1989 replacing a previous station house, with wooden benches and antique light fixtures that is unstaffed but opened around the two hours of the Empire Builder's stop at the station in each direction. This is along a simple long concrete platform with a tactile warning strip. One major sign of the fact that the station is in a town of tourists is one in the station window saying that restrooms are for Amtrak customers only.
