While we love the water park, we have been there many times, this was the dirtiest we’ve seen it. Also the coldest. We ate at the buffet dinner. My kids were super hungry. None of them wanted to eat! It was terrible. I’d never want my name on the advertisement for being the

Great Wolf Lodge was a total surprise in a way that it surpassed all our expectations. The place was very well operated and absolutely caters to children. Staff customer service was exceptional. The room we stayed in was not one of the themed rooms, but it was well appointed,

We took our 3 year old son and 3 month old son to the Great Wolf Lodge and had a complete blast! They thought of pretty much everything at the water park! Some many things to do other than swimming if you want to get out of the water for a while. We spent time in the arcade and

My family and I have been vacationing here for four years. Every year has been a great experience for us! The hotel is cute, friendly staff, and most importantly clean. The water park has something for everyone. Our bigger kids enjoyed the wave pool, lazy river, and water slides

Paw pass or wolf pass which is better
We actually did the Wolf Pass and got a great deal through their website. However, because we were celebrating Birthdays, I added my niece with the Paw Pass and still had a BlassssssssT!!!!! It's funny because I was playing all the games with my kids.

Yes you can. I bought one our first year and my daughter wasn't really into the wand magic quest game so I didn't find the value for us. This place is so much fun! Have fun and enjoy

Honestly I do not know that. I checked in early they took our luggage and held it for us so we could start enjoying the waterpark when it opened. When our room was ready we got a text from our concierge and they took our luggage and unloaded in our room without us having to leave the waterpark. That was so helpful. Hope this helps

"Make sure you get the ones with the children bunks. There is no bad place for rooms here as much of the stuff is on the lower levels."
"Go for the higher rooms 7+"
"Book early!"
"The 4th, 5th, and 6th Floors have several Magic Quest stations around the elevators."
"ask for a room as far away from the elevators as possible, it can be a long walk, but much quieter.."
$138 - $479 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
