I'm not sure. There is a ramp from the landing to the boat, but I would say at times it might not be per ADA standards , depending on water levels. So I guess with assistance, the answer would be yes.

I will be bringing my 7 yr old granddaughter to the Great Wolf lodge this weekend. Would the Pirates of the Ohio Cruise interest a little girl? Also, is this cruise close to the lodge?

The Pirates of the Ohio cruise would be a great time for your granddaughter! Our location is about 20 minutes south of Great Wolf Lodge.
