We travelled to Great Wolf Lodge last week for the second time. Last year we went right after Hurricane Irene (we had to delay the trip) and the kids have literally not. stopped. talking. about this place for the past year.
It’s an indoor water park. You stay over and the purchase of a room entitles you to admission to the water park. For someone like me with OCD, it’s really a challenge to let go and let loose at Great
Germ Wolf Lodge as we wander around in our bathing suits jammed pack with others, indoor, in a large humid room filled with water and rides and tattoos…lots of tattoos.
But the kids really have a blast.
The drive is only about 2 hours for us with a stop for lunch. And this stop is the highlight for my husband who always plans for us to dine at Cracker Barrel.
The way I see it, it is a way for us to fortify ourselves with a big meal to prepare for the physical exertion involved with dragging 3 small children up 20 flights of stairs to the tops of many water rides, many times over!!
I am ever so grateful that there is a Starbucks in the lobby at the Lodge. I literally become elated when I purchase my chai tea latte, after a night in one room the three bickering monkeys.
Great Wolf has several locations around the U.S. Have you ever been?
