Spending time with the family on vacation is important, and getting everyone in one place for a week without fighting is important too. So when it comes time for a family vacation, parents want to find some magical place where everyone can have fun, bond, and make memories. Great Wolf Lodge does the trick.
From the moment you walk through those huge wooden doors, you enter into a world made for family fun, adventure, and a little help from fairies. Little kids love story time, an event every night held in the lobby where children come in their PJs and hear stories. There is a MagiQuest game that kids can play all around the hotel; with a magic wand they go on a quest with fairies, pixies and dragons. But for tweens and teens who have outgrown nature shows and and bedtime stories there is bowling, an arcade and the water park that is fun for everyone!
If moms want to escape the family fun, they can get a massage or a manicure. But kids can get their nails done, too: Elements spa is for adults and Scoops spa is for kids; they let everyone relax and take a break with a mani, pedi, facial or a nice massage.
While moms are taking a break, Dad and the kids can enjoy the water park. With wave pools, a tree house, toddler pool, and water slides, no one will be bored. Kids over 48” can go without parents on all of the slides, and the wave pool is an amazing feature; it is truly like being at a beach with crashing waves but no sand, jellyfish, crabs, shells, and salt water stinging your eyes.
The slides at the water park are the most fun! The Howlin’ Tornado is a one of the most extreme, and if you are not in for all that fun, they have single and double runs that still make you giggle. Then after riding all the rides you want, the hot springs and lazy river are nice and relaxing.
Food…we all eat it right? Great Wolf Lodge has the Loose Moose Cottage. This restaurant has omelets in the morning, sandwiches, soups, and lunch foods in the afternoon, and great meals in the evening, or you can grab a pizza at Hungry As A Wolf. If you don’t want to eat on property, thats ok, too; there are many options all around the hotel. You can go to any one of your favorite chains and grab something to eat. And every room has a microwave and fridge so you can bring meals and snacks back to your room and even save the leftovers.
