My wife and 5 year old son stayed at Great Wolf on Friday April 20th. We arrived at 1pm knowing check in was not till 4pm, but knowing we could use the water park early, we decided to get their early. I was surprisded that our room was ready so that made everything easier as we were able to take eveything to our room and change in there vs. changing in the locker room.
We stayed in the Family Suite and it was just fine, it was clean with plenty of room for the 3 of us.
Our son loved the water park as he was able to go on all the rides, something he can't do at other water parks. Sometimes my wife or I had to go ahead of him down the slide and wait for him at the bottom, but that was fine for us. He could also wear a life jacket in other areas, so all in all he had a great time. I can see where for older kids they could get bored pretty quickly though. We have been to other water parks that have more rides.
Being there on Friday was great, we never had to wait in line, be that at check in, the water park or the restaurants.
On Friday night we ate at Gitchigoomie and it was very good with large portions. Saturday morning we ate at Lumber Jack's which was served family style and was good also.
We had a good time in the arcade as there are games for little kids and adults.
Saturday the park did start to fill up more, and when we finally left at around 3pm, there was a long line out the door with people waiting to check in. I was really glad at this point that we came on Friday.
All in all we had a really good time and we were exhausted when we left as our son never wanted to take a break. I would highly recomend Great Wolf for people with little kids as they can use the entire park. As they get older though we would probably go to other parks.
