The water park portion of our stay was very enjoyable. We all had a lot of fun on the slides, in the lazy river, and of course, in the hot tub. Unfortunately, that is about where it ends. We were encouraged to arrive prior to our check in time to use the water park, which we did. When we arrived,... More

We just returned home from a weekend at GWL in Kansas City where they have lots of fun activities to keep the kids happy and busy. The Paw Pass is worth the extra $$. Every employee was wonderfully helpful and polite. The water park was great. The arcade was okay (small and not a wide variety of games.) The Magic... More

Took our grandkids and their parents, of course last June. It is paradise for youngsters...not shabby for adults too. Water slides of all sizes galore. Plenty of lifeguards...water is very shallow. Life vests provided free for the younger ones. Not cheap, but all the kids could want. While there visited a dinosaur café within a mile. Moving dinosaurs overlooking your... More

Our kids had so much fun in the water park, and doing the magi quest, they also loved their wolf den bunk beds. From an adult perspective, our room was filthy with stains on the carpet and cob webs, service wa horrible in the restaurant and pizza pick up, and the lady who filled our animals was grumpy!!!! All the... More

The Great Wolf Lodge in KC is a great place to stay if you have children. The indoor waterpark is warm inside, 84 degrees, with lots of slides and a large water playground. It is perfect for the entire family, as kids get to splash and play while the parents have a chance to relax. Our two boys are 13... More

Our third family weekend trip to the Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City was an enjoyable experience for the whole family. The kids had a blast in the water park and playing Magic Quest. The mothers, we were with another family, spent an entire day outside of the hotel shopping at the Plaza and the Legends. The fathers relaxed and... More

We loved our room, a wolf den, the kids were estatic about the bunks! Only complaint about the room was our drain in the tub wasn't working, but none of us wanted a... More

My family has visited grapevine 30+ times. This was our first stay at KC. It is a smaller hotel. There isn't a wave pool, family slide (for four people), or guest laundry. We still had a great stay. Several guests mentioned dust in the rooms but ours was clean. Some spots at the bottom of the pool needed resurfacing but... More

We just spent the whole weekend at Great Wolf Lodge. Two little girls with my wife and I and overall, there was a lot to be desired. While the staff overall was very pleasant and the girls did have fun, which is the most important part, for what they charge a night plus all the add on amenities they expect... More

We arrived on a Sunday early because of the weather and we were pre-booked into a room and were told they would contact us when the room was ready (which was about an hour and was within the timetable given). I had already bought and paid for the room on Groupon but was told that they needed to just "swipe"... More
