Fun for the family, from the words of my ten year old daughter, terrible food choices for children. Not many veggies or fruit choices at all besides the breakfast buffet. Water park is good for two days but boring after that. Don't think we will be back, just other stuff to do on the coast. Gave a three for value... More

GWL is a blast if your family is into water parks. We did two nights with a 3 1\2 and a 4 year old and that felt right as far as seeing everything and leaving while everyone was still sane and really excited we had went. We were there in February and with the snow outside it makes you really... More

Wow, I just spent a night at the Great Wolf Lodge. easy to find and right off I-5. Let me tell you , you better love kids. I'm a grandfather and went with 4 teenage girls. Tried to read a book in the lobby as two children flew across the coffee table in front of me. Good excuse for parents... More

This was our family's 3rd trip to Great Wolf, and it was definitely the best! The park was already nice, but they just keep making improvements with each visit - heck, feels like they read reviews here for pointers! Our family of 2 adults, 4 kids (2 teens, 2 tweens) booked the Grand Bear suite, and had plenty of comfy... More

It was a blast! Even with the President's Day weekend crowds, it was organized and designed well enough to be quite enjoyable. The lines for the slides look long, but aren't really bad at all (AWESOME water slides). We did have to wait a half hour for dinner, but they gave us a pager and we enjoyed the wait. Tax... More

We've stayed before & paid way too much so I didn't enjoy myself then. This time some friends got an unbelievable deal. If you can get past the price its a great place. All rooms are nice. The waterpark is amazing and it is worth paying the extra to play the Magiquest game during the breaks from the water. We... More

We bought a Groupon certificate for $229 that included a night stay in a Premium Suite, up to 6 passes to the water park, buffet breakfast for the family, and a pizza dinner meal. There isn't a better deal for 2 days of family fun in Western Washington in the middle of winter! This entire resort is built for fun... More

No one ever chooses when and where they might come down with a viral illness. We had invited my daughter's best friend to come and experience Great Wolf Lodge with us on our 5th return. She had never been and was thrilled to get an opportunity. Unfortunately she came down with a stomach bug which we thought might be motion... More
