If you remember Haley Mills movies at the drive-in with your jammies then this is the place to see your movie in the Wisconsin Dells. The people all about were happy and fun to talk to while we waited and the concession stand was equipped with a classic pay phone that worked!

I took my 7 year old son to the Drive In for the first time and it was great. We went to the consessions and got some popcorn and candy, the candy was definately over priced, but everything else seemed reasonable. Bathroom was dated, but clean. Grounds were clean as well.

It has been years since either my wife or I had been to a drive-in movie. My two children have never been to one. My daughter was real skeptical about this...why go to a movie and stay in your car when you can go to an indoor theater? By the end of the night she was glad we went here.... More

We attempted to go to the drive in on a Friday night but got there too late, there were about 70 cars in line and no chance of getting in. We went back the next night and got there earlier around 8ish and we were able to get in about 8:30. The movie was supposed to begin as soon as... More

We went to the Big Sky Drive-In on our recent trip to the Dells. We saw "World War Z" and "Man of Steel". None of us had been to a drive-in in over 15 years, so this was a nice way to relive the old days. The audio worked great through our FM car stereo - in fact, even if... More

We wanted to check out a drive in, and it was great. Tickets were $8 per adult, and the movie was easy to hear through the car radio. Make sure you bring bug spray, and don't miss it!

We never get a chance to do something like this, so it was a thrilling night for everyone...even though we drove home with a car full of sleeping kids.

Had a great time here! Where else can you see 2 movies for 8 bucks?! Good fast service in the snack bar as well! Could use an update to bathrooms and out buildings but still an awesome deal!! We will return!

Where can you get 2 first run movies for $8?!? The value is amazing...the concessions were more than fairly priced, and the attendants were courteous and attentive, escorting cars out if there were violations or disturbances to others. I'm so glad we did this, and will be back...
