Great Wolf Lodge – Day 19

Great Wolf Lodge – Day 19

by Renee Bodkin

Our family – including my sisters and their families (and Grammy and Gapa) – has been going to Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls, Ontario annually for what seems like forever.  I believe this year was our fifth year – we went the first time just the 5 of us because I won a “trip” there for a radio contest.   We always go in the winter because truly it’s awesome swimming and being in a 84 degree water park when you see snow falling outside!

The boys love it!!  They have gotten to a point where they can go off on their own to this slide or that slide with a buddy (or brother or cousin).    There are waterslides for toddlers on up to daring slides for bigger kids and adults!  There is a wave pool, lazy river (a favorite for all), a climbing area, a ginormous 4 story treehouse play area called Fort Mackenzie, and more pools for fun water activities!!  And, don’t forget the hot tubs.  There’s a family hot tub and one for adults and an outdoor one for people over 16.  This year was the first time I could go in the outdoor one (escape the kids for a few minutes) and I must say it was awesome with snow falling on our heads!!  There is really water fun for all!!  



The rooms are fantastic.  Even the more generic room – the deluxe suite – is great.  The boys enjoyed the Wolf Den Suite this year  – bunkbed area for them to sleep.  The whole place rooms and all is themed like the outdoors with log cabin-esque features.  The lobby is so warm and inviting and a wonderland (especially at Christmas time) for the kids.  Interactive, animated animals and a warm fireplace are the highlights!

We had a blast!!  

And I am grateful for this family tradition of going to Great Wolf Lodge!
