On Friday night my family and I traipsed off to Great Wolf Lodge.
Well okay, we didn’t walk there (since that is apparently what traipsed means – I looked it up) but we did drive there.
Wasn’t that totally worth your time for me to clarify that?
I thought so too.
You’re so welcome.
Anyway, the reason we
traipsed drove to Great Wolf Lodge is because the great people at Great Wolf Lodge invited my family to spend the night, play in their water park and generally have a good time so that after my experience there I would be compelled to tell you…
Go immediately to the closest Great Wolf Lodge near you!!! Do not walk, do not hesitate, do not pass go and collect $200 (although you may want to hit the ATM on the way) just GO!!!!!!
And I seriously do mean every single word of that. They didn’t tell me to tell you that, they were probably just hoping I would say something remotely like that to you all, so that worked out well.
Seriously this place is so. much. fun. You must go as early as yesterday. In fact, you may have even wanted to go as early as last week, it’s that much fun.
The whole Great Wolf Lodge experience is amazing. As soon as you walk in the doors you feel like you’ve walked into a North Woods Cabin. You truly feel you are “away from it all.”
Many of you may have recently seen Great Wolf Lodge on the TV show Undercover Boss (great episode by the way) and one of the “hitches” the under cover boss had was with the lengthy check-in process.
Well I’m happy to report to you that the boss must have made some serious changes because the check-in was not lengthy at all. It was speedy, informative, and no longer than any other check-in process at a regular hotel.
But what I can’t wait to tell you about is the room! Great Wolf Lodge hooked us up with one of their KidCabin Suites. (That’s how great Great Wolf Lodge is folks.)
Here’s what the KidCabin Suites look like. When you walk in you see this to the left…
Well, you don’t see the children. They don’t come with the room, you have to provide your own.
But inside this Kids Cabin is a bunk bed…
(again, child not included)
And a single bed…
(Hopefully by now you know… children aren’t included.)
And a video game/TV area…
At this point I would just like to say two things…
1. Children aren’t included.
2. The room ROCKED.
Then, as if the hook up with this KidsCabin Suite wasn’t enough, the incredibly great people at Great Wolf Lodge went the extra mile and left this on our bed….
Whatever could it be?…
Well, hello my little pretties… come to mama…. I won’t hurt you a bit…..
Great Wolf Lodge left us a very nice note saying that since we were special guests they wanted us to enjoy some milk (in the fridge) and cookies!
Milk and cookies?! Uh, sign me up for that one.
Oh, wait. I did.
Now, I’ve been told that milk and cookies are not a standard thing that happens for all guests, so please don’t go all crazy on your Great Wolf Lodge front desk people if you don’t have any in your room when you go (because I’ve already told you you should go). It was just a nice little bonus. And besides… it WAS my birthday weekend.
At this point I don’t even have time to tell you about the other fun amenities at Great Wolf Lodge. There are truly so many I’m sure I would forget half of them and not even do them justice, so it’s probably better that way… but just to name a few…
- major arcade
- a show (complete with snow fall) in the main lobby
- amazing food (seriously, the breakfast at Lumber Jack’s Cook Shanty is AMAZING)
- crafts at Cub Club
