We just returned from our stay at the GWL. We have two 11 year old kids one boy & one girl who had a blast, there was plenty for them to do and they stayed occupied. It was nice to have an indoor water park; I wish they had a few more slides in my opinion, because I thought it would be grander. Anyhow, I wouldn’t go overboard on your room because you’re there only to sleep. Hotel was clean and customer service was outstanding. We went during the summer, and there were a lot of people, but we went to the water park both days late in the afternoon which was nice because most of the younger kids had gone in by then. Park was open from 9 am – 9 pm we would go about 2 pm which gave us plenty of time to do everything we wanted to do.
Food was also good there we ate at the Lodge Wood Fired Grill twice and it was tasty (need to change out the soup of the day daily as advertised) The Loose Moose Cottage great place for breakfast, which is buffet style and a make your own omelet bar, and had an evening pizza from Hungry as a Wolf. All were reasonable for families. There is also a Starbucks in the hotel for the morning coffee. I would go back again I think only two days is long enough for us. Only thing I didn’t like was this game called Quest, (which we didn’t participate in $16 bucks for this magic wand and $16 bucks for the game), even though it kept A LOT of KIDS busy it was more of a hassle then anything since kids were everywhere playing this game in the hallways, down on the first floor and mostly using the elevators to go from floor to floor which made for some long elevator wait times.
I recommend using the stairs much faster unless you’re on floor 8. I do have to say 11 pm it got quiet can’t play the game after that time. I did see a lot of families bring in their own ice chests to their rooms with drinks so they would not have to buy drinks there. I didn’t see any Ice Chests at the water park. There are also a few things close by to do which my kids enjoyed. I recommend the Bureau of Engraving (free tour) see how money is made in Fort Worth & the Texas School Book Depository museum - the JFK shooting site in Dallas.
