Great Wolf Lodge is North America’s biggest indoor water park, and a great vacation spot for families. There are thirteen great locations to choose from, all with tons of fun for everyone. You pay one price for almost everything at the resort, which makes a trip budget friendly.
The park stays a balmy 84 degrees year round, so whatever the weather outside, you will be warm and comfortable indoors. Great Wolf Lodge has thousands of square feet of water enjoyment.
For the younger set, there are wading pools, mini slides, balancing logs and forts with water sprays. Toddlers will absolutely love Soak’n Oak Springs. This is a playtime treehouse with gentle slides and cute fountains that look like baby bears.
For Children a little older, Totem Towers is great sliding fun. There are body slides that have easy turns with straightaways that gently slope. It is nice that life jackets are allowed on this ride, but the slides end in a shallow pool of water.
Teens (and adults!) will love Alberta Falls. This four story waterslide will have you twisting, sliding, splashing and turning before dropping into the plunge pool. There are single tubes or a double if you want to share the ride with a friend. Just make sure to exit the pool right away, since other sliders will be coming down right behind you.
If the kids need some down time, there is story time and even Cub Club, where they can do arts and crafts. In the morning there is a Wolf Walk around the lobby where the kids can learn about wolves, crawl around and even learn to howl.
Great Wolf Lodge has great overnight accommodations if you want to stay longer than a day. There are suites that will accommodate four to eight people. Most of the suites have mini-fridges and microwaves for convenience.
Don’t worry if anyone forgets sunscreen or swimsuits. There is a swim shop at Great Wolf Lodge, and a gift shop, too. MagiQuest Marketplace lets you get a magic wand with a character that lets you play this live-action adventure game as you go throughout the resort.
Great Wolf Lodge has some great places to eat on site as well. From coffee and donuts to burgers and pizza, you are sure to find something everyone can agree on. There is also a nice Grill that serves delicious food and has a good variety of meals to choose from.
Whether visiting for a day trip, or a long weekend, Great Wolf Lodge has everything you need for a family getaway all in one location, at a great price.
