Our family of six consisting of four kids ages 12, 9, 6 and 3 spent two nights at the Great Wolf Aug 2014 on a little getaway. We live about three hours from the Dells and this is the fourth waterpark resort we have tried. We really enjoyed our stay! I was a little nervous before going because I had read it was more for small children and my older kids are daredevils but they greatly enjoyed the stay as well and are already asking to go back!
Check in was quick and efficient. We got two paw passes for the kids to share which ended up being a GREAT deal. The boys got the magic quest games and wands and both felt it was their most favorite thing to do. The girls used the build a bear. We shared the cups, candy, ice cream and other goodies that came with the pass.
Location is excellent, near many eateries and an outlet mall which we walked over to. It was a short drive to the downtown area and other attractions. The waterpark consisted of three areas and an outdoor park. It was a little on the cool side so we didnt spend much time outdoors. The indoor park areas were fun. There were plenty of slides for our three year old to enjoy that were perfect for her. She also enjoyed the large wave pool which was warm and fun. The older three enjoyed the various slides, with Howlin tornado being the favorite. There were three other tube slides and some mat racers we all enjoyed as well as a few body slides. Only thing I missed that other parks had was a decent lazy river. Staff in the waterparks were so vigilant, we were really impressed. I also really liked the fact that the dont admit outside guests, you must be staying at the resort. It never seemed crowded at all.
The storytime and clock show in the lobby were loved by our youngest, and definitely geared to the younger set, but truly with the magic quest and some of the bigger slides, our older kids seemed to have just as much fun.
Our room was a kids cabin and it was a super cute set up with a bunk bed and daybed in the cabin part and then a queen and pull out in the main part. Kids felt the beds were a bit hard but were so tired they fell asleep quickly at night. We enjoyed having our own private balcony. Room was clean and in good repair.
We would not hesitate coming back to this resort, but will probably continue trying other parks as well as each place has something different to offer!
