Booked one night stay, which was definitely enough. I can't imagine staying here longer than that one night since you get use of the waterpark plus other activities from 1pm on your checkin day to close of the day you actually checkout. Stayed in the 2 queen room which was really nice, roomy with high ceilings, fridge, micro and sitting... More

We stayed for one night; this was our second trip here and it seems one night is about right. If you take advantage of the ability to start using the park at 1 PM day of check-in and through the remaining day, you get a good chunk of water fun for a somewhat more reasonable price. This is expensive, but... More

Great year round fun for the whole family. The indoor waterpark has something for all ages from 1 to 100. Teens can veg out at the arcade and the adults can relax at the spa. Multiple restaurants make finding something for everyone easy.

My family loves this place!!! One night is really not enough, go for 2!!! We have stayed twice, both times in a Kid Cabin Suite. We take almost all our own food along, the bar fridge, microwave and coffeemaker just about cover everything we need. A few hints: book your breakfast buffet when you make your reservation, it will save... More

Great waterpark, although not as big as the GWL at Niagara Falls. LOTS of life-guards around, indoor & outdoor hot-tub, wavepool, waterslides, etc. Beds were very comfortable. We pre-purchased the breakfast option and it was worth it. Dinner prices were a bit high so we went to nearby Country Cousins (see restaurant review for that).

Spent 2 nights in a wolf den, I would stay In a regular room the next time we go. We brought in snacks from outside and ate dinners outside of the resort. Healthy options are pretty limited. The breakfast buffet was not bad though. Both kids (10 and 11) loved the magic quest. The workers seemed to enjoy their jobs... More

This place is awesome! My kids said they liked it better than Disney World! We really enjoyed our stay here and can't wait to return. The water slides are SO fun. Overall really great experience.

We had a tribe of 7 in a Wolf Den room. Costs were curbed because we went during one of their discount time periods as well as going mid-week. It was our first time. They give everyone a bracelet so you can get into the water park. The adult bracelets also work as the room key as well as purchasing... More

A friend of mine and I took our kids to the Great Wolf Lodge for one of the kid's birthdays. She booked the trip on-line through the hotel but we found out after that there are great deals through on-line travel companies so check there, first. We paid double what the family in front of us (in the check-in line)... More

We stayed here 1 night while visiting the Seattle area. We travelled with two small children and another family. Overall, we had fun at the resort but would probably not rush back for another stay. Resort/Common Areas - the place is huge and has a great lodge feel. High ceilings, wooden beams and stone fire place make for a great... More
