Swimming at Great Wolf Lodge

On the last day of spring break, the kids and I went on an adventure to the Great Wolf Lodge. We were able to get day passes through Big Brother / Big Sisters (this offer is available through May 22) which meant we didn’t have to stay there overnight and that we got a nice discount. My kids aren’t into big water slides, but there was plenty for them to enjoy between the swimming pool, the wading pool, the large water play structure, and the hot tub. Of course, it is hard to get photos when you’re swimming and soaking wet, but here are some!

After swimming for 2 hours, we were wrinkly and hungry, so we got some ice cream in the lobby.

And then we took funny pictures with the lobby displays.

My only real complaint about the experience was that the bathroom / changing room could have been warmer! I hate when I’m wet and freezing! Otherwise, we had a lot of fun and would definitely do this again!

Looked like so much fun, but I am with you and don't like to be cold changing either.

No moose in the displays??
That looks awesome and tiring - just how I'd want a vacation to be. We have one somewhat near us.

It looks like you went on the perfect day! We went there a LONG time ago--when I was in High School and it was SO packed you couldn't do anything without smacking into four other people. I can't wait to take Berkley there!

We have one of these about 3 hours away. Someday we'd like to check it out!

yeah, they really should heat the changing rooms!

no moose...at the great wolf lodge? lol. maybe it would be cool if it was the great moose lodge, you think?

Dara said...

I love them too. it is hard to do stuff with the kids though - can't leave them to go down the slides!

Dara said...

this was nice, not being packed at all! our spring break wasn't the same as everyone else's so that was awesome!

Dara said...

you should go and stay for a day or so!

That looks like so much fun! We had a water park about five minutes from my house growing up. It was a blast being able to go there whenever. We don't have anything like that within an hour radius of us now unfortunately.

I always wanted to live close to a water park! that must have been so much fun.
