We were invited to spend the night at Great Wolf Lodge and we had a blast.
To start off our journey we got there early so that we could enjoy the water park. By the time we had our bathing suits on our room was ready so we walked upstairs to put our clothes in there. Then we started playing at the water park. It was fun this year because Miles has decided that he LOVES water slides. He rode quite a few before we went into the swim area. Zoe and I spent quite a bit of time in the wave pool and that ended up being her favorite part. When we ere done swimming we went back up to our room and put our clothes back on.
Great Wolf Lodge let us stay in one of the special Snowland Suites complete with twinkling garland, decorated tree, oversized snowflakes, and an assortment of take-home goodies. We got to keep the blanket and story book.
They gave us a Paws Pass, there are three different Paws Passes to choose from and if you plan on doing any of the extra activities there it is such a good deal to get a Paws Pass. We worked up quite an appetite and decided to eat at Lodge Wood Fired Grill.
We spent many hours playing Magi Quest. After all our fun Violet the Wolf hand delivered milk and cookies. That comes with the Snowland Suites.
The next day before we left we made sure to finish our MagiQuest. The kids had so much fun while it exhausted me. We went up and down and up and down the stairs but it was great seeing the kids solve all the riddles. I was really tempted to go to the spa with Zoe and get a mommy daughter treatment but we ran out of time. I think if you stay at Great Wolf lodge and want to do more than the waterpark you need to stay for about three nights.
You can eat in the Gingerbread House.
Families are invited to celebrate the magic of the season by dining inside the world’s only life-size, dine-in gingerbread house. Great Wolf Lodge has partnered with Just Born, makers of PEEPS, Mike and Ikes and Hot Tamales, to create each gingerbread house. Featuring more than 5,000 candies, 600 pounds of gingerbread dough and 1,320 pounds of sugar, each house will be baked, iced and candied to perfection, providing the setting for a memorable holiday feast. The appetizing walls of the lodge-baked abode have as much heart as taste as the proceeds for each meal goes to charity. Up to six individuals can dine in the gingerbread house for a $10 “sitting fee.” The sitting fee is then directly donated to local Ronald McDonald House Charities. Over the past three years, Great Wolf has raised $65K for charity from their Snowland fundraising efforts.
All the decorations are beautiful and it was so fun. We love going to Great Wolf Lodge and are greatful we got to stay.
