Before you visit Great Wolf Lodge right now (or anywhere, really) understand that things are going to be different. Yes, the some areas (ex: hot tubs) are closed. Given the current circumstances, I think the employees did a fantastic job. Everything was very clean. With that out of the way, we had an amazing adults only trip. Not once were we made to feel silly for going without children. I was so excited when the front desk offered us free wolf ears at check in. On our first night we got in late so we didn't visit the water park but we had dinner at Loose Moose Cottage which was serving the dinner menu from Lodge Wood Fire Grill. I was pleased to find gluten free offerings on the menu. GF sandwich bun was good. On day 2 (a Saturday) we started out the day in the waterpark. We got there after it was already open but we did not struggle at all to find chairs. If you are concerned about social distancing, you will want to skip the slides as people do tend to not follow the tape on the floor. We were crowded on most slide lines, but it didn't bother me. After a few hours we dried off and did MagiQuest, the arcade, and mini golf. I have seen a lot of other reviewers saying that these activities are crowded after the water park closes, which is absolutely true. If you can, doing them in the middle of the day is great. There was only one other family in the mini golf room and we did not have to wait in line to get into the arcade (after the water park closed there was a huge line to get into the arcade since they can only let let so many in at a time). We were able to explore MagiQuest without tons of people running around the hallways. Also- MagiQuest is limited to a small section of hallways off of the main lobby. You won't have to worry about kids running past your door when you are trying to sleep. There are no MagiQuest items in the guest room areas. We went back to the water park around dinner time and it wasn't as crowded as it was in the morning. Around 8:30PM on Saturday night the fire alarms went off. Obviously beyond anyone's control but the employees were great about it. I received updates via the Great Wolf Lodge mobile app (download it before you go) and we were back inside within 15 minutes. We ordered pizza from Hungry as a Wolf (again, so glad to have a GF option. I actually texted the app earlier in the day and asked if it was available, and someone responded to me within two minutes). We did another round of MagiQuest while we were waiting for the pizza and this time it did have a lot of kids dashing around everywhere- definitely do it earlier in the day if you can. We had a buzzer to let us know our pizza was ready and we took it back to the room. The employees in the pizza place were fantastic. Pizza was good. On Sunday we were able to sleep in since we purchased late check out (highly recommend). All in all, it was a great trip. Activities are fun and the employees are doing all they can to keep everyone safe and happy The whole time we saw maybe three or four families who refused to wear masks, but honestly- you'll see that at your local grocery store too. Can't wait to go back!…
We stayed at Great Wolf lodge in Mason Ohio in Feb 2021 and had a very good trip. Upon returning home however I began to receive emails about a “bounce back” discount if I booked a one night or two night stay prior to 3/20/21. The stay didn’t have to be before 3/20/21, just the reservation made prior to that date. They promised up to 40% off for one night and up to 50% off for two nights in big bold writing. There was some fine print but so small it was unreadable. I decided this would be a nice weekend trip for the family since we had such a nice time the month prior, so I used the code to make the reservation. Upon attempting to make the reservation I noticed that the code didn’t decrease the price of the stay at all. In fact it increased it for less days. So, I called the great wolf reservations to inquire about the discount, at which time I was informed that I could not use the discount for these days that I wanted and that there are black out dates. Also, in order to qualify for the discount I was told that I would need to book 60 days in advance and even with that 60 day notice the discount may or may not be the 40 to 50% promised. Basically, I was told that the days had to be days that were convenient for them and not for us, the customers. These details were nowhere in the big bold advertising that was sent on three separate occasions to my email. This, in my opinion, was false advertising and an attempt by great wolf to promise one thing, then get you online or on the phone, and try to talk their way around why they couldn’t honor what the email stated. I understand that the fine print may have stated some of these things, but the way they have it set up is 100% an attempt to deceive and “bait and switch” the customers. It my opinion, that is not a way to get repeat business and is misleading at best & downright dishonest and wrong at worst. So, with all that being said, we will be spending our money closer to home at a different water park/resort that is cheaper, and in all honesty, better. I have stayed at Great Wolf several times in the past and spent thousands of dollars in their facilities, but Feb 2021 was the last time. If they can’t be more honest and upfront with their customers, especially during a time when money is tight for many, then I prefer to spend my money elsewhere and to warn others of their practices. Instead of helping during this time with families and their finances they are trying to allude to one thing while trying to hook you with another. As a matter of fact, these two nights we were going to stay, in the exact same type of room as in Feb 2021, was actually going to be hundreds of dollars more expensive for two nights than it was for the three we stayed in Feb. Buyer beware. My advice: Spend your money somewhere else that will be upfront and honest with customers and not try to promise things they won’t deliver. You’ve just lost many more visits from my family Great Wolf and from anyone else I can convince to go other places with this review and others I will make. I will use every platform available to me to get the word out about this type of practice. …
Great Wolf is a fun time. I can go on and on about the bad, but who wants that. We've visited three years in a row with hope of it being better. This trip was probably the best of the three even though there were still hiccups. The staff was wonderful and did there best to make sure a great time was had despite the current times. We were overjoyed. The guests on the other hand were rude. It is difficult to docile distance, but there are areas where it can be possible inside the building, not the Waterpark. I'm saddened by how several patrons behaved. Overall, a good time. Our daughter is getting a little too old for most of the activities, but she still had a fantastic time. The food was great and served ina speedy manner.
We’ve been guests at Great Wolf Lodge countless times through the years and we were excited about our weekend getaway as our winter break plans had to be cancelled. We’ve travelled safely during the pandemic with few issues, but this was one trip we regretted almost immediately. The Good The hotel is at limited capacity and advanced online check in was quick and easy. We picked up our packet from the front desk quickly and the staff were super friendly and efficient. The app was easy to use and provided the daily schedule and online ordering. I would highly recommend online ordering, especially for breakfast - we preordered from Dunkin Donuts, got settled into seats in the water park and picked up breakfast while bypassing the line stretching through the lobby. The Bad Online ordering was a breeze, pickup not so much. Dunkin Donuts was pure chaos, but everyone was friendly and working hard. Getting lunch less so. We had ordered cups of cheese sauce and didn’t receive them, when I asked the girl handing me our food snapped at me that it cost extra - and I told her I was aware as I’d ordered it. They then informed me that it would be 20 minutes before they would have it ready. None of the food places seemed to have napkins available, which was really odd - you would think we’d want to avoid having people lick their fingers before returning to attractions during COVID. Highly recommend arriving at the water park at or just after opening. Seating is limited, even more than capacity. Within an hour of opening, there were no available seats and people were upset and frustrated. (There were also a few that were moving others’ belongings to take seats.) The Ugly If you haven’t been vaccinated or don’t have antibodies from a previous infection and care about your health whatsoever, wait - this is NOT the time to visit. Masking and social distancing are a joke. Attractions are limited capacity - which means that people are lining up with no distancing and no masks all over the place waiting. This can be done and done right if it’s enforced. If you don’t care and think COVID is a giant conspiracy and want to pretend it doesn’t exist, you’ll have a great time. …
I was cautious about going here during COVID. Generally, things were well done. There were a few people who didn't wear masks, but they didn't look like people with whom reason would work. A rating was lost because on Saturday the pool and leap pad were closed, which forced everyone together on the remaining attractions and things got close. Also, the dual lines were opened on the rides which placed people close together. Otherwise, they limited people in the arcade, enforced mask wearing, and I was impressed with how hard the cleaning crew worked on each room.
