"There's nothing to be scared of here." So sings the slightly creepy animatronic characters during the daily musical show. And it's true. Don't let the negative reviews stop you from having a good time with your family. This was our first time at the Great Wolf Lodge. Our kiddos are 8 and 5, and declared GWL their "favorite place on...

Took our daughter here for her 4th birthday. She had a great time. Loved that the arcade had the majority of games that kids could win. Story time in the lobby was adorable. I recommend getting the paw pass if you plan on doing a lot of the activities besides swimming. Overall we had a great time and our daughter...

For the money that is being charged,this place falls way behind. The family suite room is too small. The shower is like getting a shower in a closet. The whole room was tiny. The kids room was best part but no door to it so your kids are right there with you. The water park was a huge disappointment. The...

So many things to do it's hard to do it all in a two stay trip!!! It's an amazing place. We already have reservations to go back and stay for both our kids birthdays this year and we all can't wait. It's a great place for a mini vacation.

The staff was pleasant. The room was very basic and needs updated. I do not recommend for kids 12 and older. There is only one big slide and my 12 and 13 year old got bored quickly. Lazy river is tiny. Spending the extra money for Kalahari is totally worth it.

We went because it seemed to have more for toddlers. It was very toddler friendly. There were heaps of people but it never felt over crowded in the kiddie pool. There are tables and chairs but too many people "reserve" a table and you wouldn't see them in the pool area for hours. The room smelled musty and the carpet...

Only go here if you have money to spend. While the 'pack members' are pretty friendly, there are those who aren't and I never saw them smile. Its a perfect place to take children between the ages of 4-10 but anything over that, you might be looking at bored teens. My small children had fun but even they noticed things...

This our first visit to a GWL. Our 8 year old enjoyed the water park. Our room was just OK. When we first arrived, you could tell that the carpet had not been vacuumed...there were threads/strings and fuzz in several places. That made me nervous as everything else looked dirty too. I checked our bedsheets and everything was fine. Things...
