Great Wolf Lodge Promotes Family Fun in 2012
We recently posted a review of the Great Wolf Lodge for it being a great family fun resort. Now, they are making it even better. North America’s largest family of indoor water park resorts is adding wide new array of attractions to properties all over the nation. They really have something for everyone. If you have never been there, or are experiencing the lodge for a second time, it will exceed your expectations.
“We’re delighted to introduce so many new amenities and attractions that help us continue to do what we do best – create family traditions, one family at a time,” said Tim Black, executive vice president of operations, Great Wolf Lodge. “We’re in the business of providing quality experiences for families, and brand-wide we have added exciting new experiences that our guests can enjoy together.”
The lodge has begun renovations worth of $4 million at its first two resorts in Wisconsin Dells, WI and Sandusky, OH. They are also creating new activities and attractions at all of their other locations to promote family focused fun.
Their new attractions include:
Ten Paw Alley Strikes with Fun
A family oriented spin on traditional bowling. The six-lane alley is complete with five-pound balls – perfect for the little ones. They also have a “no rental shoes allowed” policy which is nice for everyone involved. It is already a fan favorite at some of their properties likes the Pocono Mountains, PA, Mason, OH, Williamsburg, Va, and Concord, NC.
Howl at the Moon Glow Golf
No matter how late at night, you can find yourself playing this new glowing miniature golf experience. Present at the Pocono Mountains, PA.
Scooops Kid Spa is an Ice Cream Dream in Sandusky, Ohio
Your little ones will be in heaven at this attraction. The Kid Spa is complete with giant banana split thrones for pedicures, ice cream teamed manicures, and sherbet scrubs.
Resort-wide, Scooops Kid Spa guests will have the chance to experience special one-on-one time with one of the resort’s lovable characters, Violet, during Social Hour. Pedicures and manicures are now much more fun with everyone’s favorite girly wolf, Violet, by your side!
The MagiQuest Adventure Continues
Even though this is already a favorite in the Lodge, the interactive live action adventure game has begun a new chapter. Opening earlier this spring in Niagara Falls, Canada, the game has made its way to all Great Wolf Lodge resorts. Also added were Topper Powers. These wand toppers give players the ability to enhance their game experience and bring a new level of magic and fun to their experience.
Topper Powers are just one part of the MagiQuest adventure for the Great Wolf Lodge resorts in Kansas City, KS, Concord, NC and Traverse City, MI. With the addition of Compass Quest at these resorts, players who have achieved “Master Magi” status can now take on new challenges and quests solving mysteries and slaying dragons.
Northern Lights Arcade
Another interactive gaming experience. The arcade at each resort will gain new games and new prize-winning opportunities. The Great Wolf X Theatre and Lazer Frenzy attractions in Grapevine, TX, are new multi-participant experiences that are fun for the whole family, while the Williamsburg, VA resort is adding a Great Wolf XD Rider attraction experience and Oliver’s Time Challenge interactive game.
The Great Wolf Kids Pack Expands
A new member has been added to the Wolf Pack, Oliver Raccoon. He never leaves home without his gadgets and bug net and can be found all over the resorts. He can even be found exploring Cub Club, playing MagiQuest, and hosting Story Time.
While you are there don’t forget to pick up your trading cards. Great Wolf Kids trading cards have become treasured collectibles during meet and greets with the Great Wolf Lodge characters and new life-sized versions of the game “Memory” help entertain children as their parents check in. This summer, the resorts will debut original, branded stories and accompanying picture books. Each book stars Wiley the Wolf, Violet, Oliver Raccoon and their friends and will be read at Story Time. Families can then purchase the books to take home with them.
Dining is a Howl
Dining has been a staple of fun in the Great Wolf Lodge and company-wide the food choices are always growing. A day of play at the Great Wolf Lodge water park can leave you “Hungry as a Wolf”; and ready to dine in the new pizza parlor location inMason, OH. Even treating yourself to ice cream and frozen yogurt is an interactive dining experience as seven properties add a unique dessert experience that allows guests to design their own treat and have it delivered by a robot.
Guests in Grapevine, TX will be treated to a wakeup call with Wiley and Friends at the character breakfast buffet which kicks off Mid-June.
Those visiting the resorts in Concord, NC, and Sandusky, OH will have their children under 10 eat for free. Also offered is those families staying the resort between Memorial Day and Labor day which features on free child breakfast or dinner buffet per adult buffet purchased at regular cost in the Loose Moose Cottage.
Guest Service Begins at Home
The enhanced and fully interactive Great Wolf Lodge website makes vacation planning even easier. The website is complete with online chat assistance, videos, discounts, and special offers.
To help guests maximize their time at the resort, Great Wolf Lodge has introduced online check-in. Guests can now check-in from home on their personal computer, and then bypass the regular line at the front desk which helps the Great Wolf Lodge experience begin that much faster.
