Great Wolf Lodge

We had an amazing time at Great Wolf Lodge.
Here's my personal review of our experience:

Check-in/out- Quick and easy, the staff was very helpful.

Cleanliness- The room, lobby, and grounds were all very clean. There is no smoking in the lodge and I didn't see a lot of butts outside (like you do some places that are non-smoking).

Waterpark- Open from 8:30am to 10pm. This place was great. It had something for everyone. There were 3 slides for the younger set (preschool age and under), 2 slides for the older kids and 3 large slides that used inflated rafts, a lazy river, and an area that was a little deeper (about 4 foot) with basketball goals and things to climb on. There was also a huge family hot tub. They had a lot of lifeguards and I felt very safe.

Room- Our room was very comfortable, two queen size beds, a loveseat with a foldout bed, mini fridge, and microwave. The tv had internet and a game system. We also had a balcony which would have been nice if it hadn't been snowing. When you arrive you recieve armbands that must be worn as they are your waterpark passes - the kids didn't like wearing them and S said she had a hard time sleeping with it on. I would suggest putting them on the ankle if your kids are easily annoyed.

Food- There are 3 places to get food in the lodge. We ate lunch and dinner at the Camp Critter Bar and Grille. The food was very yummy, fresh and well made (I suggest the Loose Moose Burger with onion rings). The kid's menu had a good amount of choices. They have a breakfast buffet from 9am to 11am. From 11am to 1pm you get a free kids meal with each adult meal. There is also a Pizza Hut Express at the waterpark, we didn't eat there but it looked like regular pizza. The last place is the Bear Claw Cafe, they serve ice cream, donuts, fudge, coffee, juice, etc.

Arcade- The arcade is directly across from the waterpark. For 5 bucks you get 20 tokens and each games cost 2 tokens. We got an amazing amount of tickets and the prizes were good.

Buckhorn Exchange- The gift shop is large and has a good variety of stuff. They are suprisingly reasonably priced. I bought a hoodie for 30 bucks and the kid's t-shirts were $12 to $14.

Cub Club- The lodge offers activities throughout the day for the kids- craft time, pj storytime, morning hike through the lobby. We colored t-shirts in the cub club room in the afternoon ( cost $10).

Overall, I give this trip a 5 out of 5 stars. Personally I care about value, what I get for my money, and I feel that I got more than I paid for. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, the waterpark was huge, the room was perfect, what more could I ask for?

I also want to add, for anyone thinking of making this trip, there is a Hampton Inn directly across the street. Since you have to check-out at 11:00am but you can swim at the Waterpark til 10:00pm it's a perfect spot to get a room for the day of your check-out. OH, and if you have never had Famous Dave's BBQ (located across the street) you must eat there.
