Great for families A review of Great Wolf Lodge
Arrived at 1:00 and received wristbands to use the water park before 4:00 check in time. Went to the lobby to check in at 5:00 and waited in line for 45 minutes. I would advise anyone to not check into their room until after 6pm. to avoid the lines. The rooms are very nice. We had a "wolf den" room and the kids really enjoyed their own space. You really don't need to spend the extra $ for the kid room because we only spent 2 hours of awake time in our room. We ate at the buffet for dinner. It was a little pricey and our waiter wasn't very helpful. The kids enjoyed that we didn't have to leave the facility. After dinner, we walked out to the clock tower and the kids watched the show/storytime. Starbuck's still isn't open and one slide still isn't working. They don't have iced coffee, so I drove to a drive-thru espresso stand and swung over to McDonalds for breakfast sandwiches while the kids already started swimming with their Dad. The breakfast buffet looked good, but it is pricey for us to do the buffet twice. Overall, we loved our stay. We had all day to swim on arrival day and swam until 2pm the next day. Plenty of time for a 1 night stay. I think they need to better their arrival check-in procedure and make the buffet more affordable. We will definately go back!
