I’ve stayed at several Great Wolf Lodge locations and I wanted to share some things that you probably didn’t know about Great Wolf Lodge that will make your visit even better.
Each time that I visit a Great Wolf Lodge, I learn something new and I’m passing that information along to you.
Great Wolf Lodge Has Wine Down Service for Parents!
Yes, that’s right! You can enjoy wine and chocolate delivered to your room!
Experience a relaxing date night in your room while the little kids go to sleep. Seriously, genius idea!
Great Wolf Guests Can Get a Free Photobook
Great Wolf Lodge has a brand partnership with Shutterfly.
Guests who stay at one of their lodges get a special code for a free 8×8 Photo Book using designs exclusively available for Great Wolf Lodge guests.
Your Waterpark Wristband Doubles as a Room Key
You can also ask to add your credit card information to your wristband so that you can charge by the pool.
Great Wolf Lodge has several experiences throughout the year that go directly to Charity
For example, during select spring weekends from 2-4 until April 16th, you try samples of lemonade at the kids club lemonade stand.
For $2.50 you can purchase lemonade that comes in a color changing cup and 100% of the proceeds go to Alex’s Lemonade Stand to help fund pediatric research projects for better treatments and cures for kids with cancer.
Now that is drinking for a great cause! There are also special experiences around the holidays that directly go to local charities.
Great Wolf Lodge has FANTASTIC Conference Food
I’ve experienced the food in the Conference Center at three different locations and each time it has exceeded my expectations with their culinary creativity that delivers on taste.
There are menu items that are more sophisticated for the adults and classic favorites for the kids. Weddings, reunions, and businesses are using their spaces more because they provide a great experience for the whole family.
The kitchen is peanut and tree nut free
Parents of kids with nut allergies can rest a little easier during their visit with this knowledge.
If you have special allergy concerns you can call ahead or email the chef directly from the website.
Great Wolf Lodge works really hard to ensure that all family members can enjoy their dining experience.
Contact in advance if you have questions or concerns for a child with special needs
For example, sign language interpretation services can be requested for shows and amenities with advanced notice.
The arcade is open 24/7
But there is not an attendant stationed there to cash in tickets 24/7.
Birthday Kids Get Special Birthday Wolf Ears
There are birthday packages available that offer additional features like a birthday banner on the birthday child’s room door.
Great Wolf Lodge is a Great Mom and Me Option
Most guests tend to be family units but it can also be a great option for friends with kids.
Share a room and share the cost. The parent has a friend and so does the kid for the win!
How You Can Experience 2 Days of Waterpark Fun!
Check-in time begins at 4 p.m. or as rooms become available but you can play in the water park as early as 1 p.m.
Check-out time is 11:00 a.m. and you can continue to enjoy the water park facilities until closing and the waterpark is for overnight guests only.
Younger kids can get a colored armband that will help identify which rides they are allowed to ride due to height restrictions.
There are also life jackets available for guests to use.
GoPros are allowed on waterslides as long as they are attached to the body and hands are free
No selfie sticks are allowed on rides.
You Can Lock Up Your Valuables
There is a safe in each room and there are also locker rentals available. If you want to keep your cell phone nearby to take pictures, I suggest using Flex Safe by AquaVault portable safe.
I’ve used mine at several resorts and I like that I can attach it to my lounge chair and it doesn’t take up much space.
I fit 3 cell phone and my husband’s wallet in mine and the safe doesn’t take very long to unlock. I would suggest trying the lock a few times before you put anything in it.
