We just returned from the Great Wolf Lodge and won't be returning until some kinks get ironed out. To start, our kids are on the young side (3 and 1), and the water thing got old quickly. Really, the only other thing to do is visit the arcade or gift shop. The Camp Critter bar and grill had great food at a reasonable price. Starbucks just opened up, which was great, but they didn't have breakfast sandwiches, pastas, yogurts, etc that a typical Starbucks would have. Nowhere, could you get anything other than a pastry for breakfast for less than the $13.99pp buffet....not even a banana. If you brought breakfast and lunch food (rooms have microwaves and mini fridges), you can save alot. The water was too cold for all of our tastes. The warm indoor park made the water seem all the colder. I spent much time with goosebumps. We upgraded to a kidcamp suite, but be warned that there is no door, so the kids are pretty much in the same room. We started with a basic room...the pictures show the divider wall extending to the length of the bed, which isn't accurate. The wall extends about a meer 3 feet. The t.v. isn't in the sitting area, but rather the bed area. This provides for no escape from the kids. The resort itself is well-kept, clean rooms etc. I think they have the right idea, but need more healthy food, more activities and cheaper prices. The spa prices seemed absurd for the clientele. I would have gotten a massage had the rates been cheaper. We left a night early. If you're planning a trip, I'd say one night is more than sufficient. Just arrive early, use the facilities prior to check in and you'll have an entire day in the water, which is more than enough, I think.
