We went to GWL to celebrate our son’s 9th birthday. Check-in was fast and efficient. Our room was not ready, so we were given wristbands and directed to the swim area. The slides were great and there was something for every age. We have a 2 year old, so I was afraid he wouldn’t have much to do. I was wrong…very wrong. He LOVED everything. GWL has done a great job making sure every family member has fun.
After dinner, we played MagiQuest. We had a great time; running up and down the stairs will really tire your kids (and you) out. I would recommend getting the Paw Pass. We split one between the two children. It allowed my older child to play MagiQuest, go to the arcade and play a round of mini golf. My little one made a stuffed bear and colored a pillowcase in the craft area.
I have a few negatives, but they were small:
(1) The pool area smelled of chlorine – bad. I had a headache after about an hour. However, I understand that this can’t be helped.
(2) We stayed in a Kid’s Kamp suite and the bunk beds were very hard. Save your money and get a regular room. Also, I would only stay a day or two. This place wears you out. You’ll be too tired after day two.
(3) The food was very expensive. We took snacks, drinks and dinner to save a little money. There were also plenty of places close by if you wanted to grab something outside the GWL.
All-in-all - a GREAT experience. Wonderful staff, plenty of lifeguards and very clean! We will be planning a second trip soon.
