We couldn’t wait for Grand Opening Day of course we had to be there to experience all the great fun. After all it is the first indoor water park resort of any kind in California.
The minute we walked in we were greeted with great smiles the hospitality was wonderful! The kids couldn’t wait to jump in the water. However, that wasn’t quite possible. First we had to check in and honestly it was a mad house, but worth every single minute we stood in line to check-in and get our wristbands. By the way you don’t want to loose your wristbands, without them you won’t be able to use the water park. There is a $40 additional charge per wristband if you need to replace it. Besides they work as your credit card and room key. You can make any type of purchases throughout the resort with your wristband which was A+ plus to me. Saved me from having to carry my wallet around the resort specially inside the water park.
The water park comes with a wave pool, water slides, lazy river, basket ball court pool, and many other water activities for all ages. There is plenty of non-water activities to do such Bowling, Arcade, Minituare Golf, Magic Quest, Howly Wood X-D Theater which is a 3D motion simulator ride along with morning and nightly activities to keep the little ones busy. There is also numerous restaurants on site. Our favorite one was the Loose Moose were we spent our Saturday morning having breakfast. They also have a Pizzeria next to the Arcade. However, they sold out on Grand Opening Day. We didn’t get a chance to sink out teeth into one of them yummy slices. I have to admit we were all a bit upset. So while the kids played at the Arcade, Mommy called Pizza Hut! That sort of took care of the problem.
They also have a few retail shops and Scoops kids spa which happened to be our favorite of all. With that said we can’t wait to come back for another Staycation and make more lifetime memories. The best part was waking up the following morning and finding great news delivered under our door. A letter from Management apologizing for the delay in check in giving us a $150 room credit and a complimentary future night stay! Great Wolf Lodge really knows how to keep their guest happy. Did we say we love you Great Wolf Lodge! The best Staycation experience ever. The kids and I loved it! Oh and Daddy can’t stop talking about it! We’ll definitely be back soon!
