Great Wolf Lodge Made Us Feel So Welcome
We just took a family road trip and spent a few days at Great Wolf Lodge in Charlotte, NC while attending Reviewers Retreat. We had a blast! When traveling with finicky tweens and teens, you never know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by just how much fun everyone had. The kids said it was one of their favorite vacations, second only to Disney World.
One of the things we really liked about the resort is how inclusive it was. Our family suite reservation included free admission to the on site indoor water park, for everyone in our party. We didn’t have to leave the resort for anything. On site activities include an outdoor pool area, Howl In One Mini Golf, Norther Lights Arcade, Ten Paw Bowling Alley, water park, MagiQuest, and Scooops Kids Spa.
Each Evening Guests Gather in the Lodge for Story Time
There is also some great shopping and multiple restaurants at the lodge, including a Pizza Hut Express and a Dunkin Donuts. We purchased a meal plan in advance which helped us keep within our budget, and were able to enjoy the fabulous buffet at the Loose Moose Cottage.

We Had A Blast at the Northern Lights Arcade
The star of the show was definitely Splash water park. It’s an indoor water park with 380,000 gallons of swirling, sloshing and sliding water! Included are 11 huge slides, 4 pools (including a wave pool), giant waterfort and much more. There is also an outdoor water park, but we spent most of our time inside. It was so fun!

This trip to Great Wolf Lodge gave us a lot of great family memories, as well as many fantastic photo ops. We took hundreds of pictures while we were there. It was difficult to choose which ones to share. Next time we’ll be sure my sister and her little ones join us, since there is so much for the younger children to enjoy also.

There is already talk of our next trip to Great Wolf Lodge. The Charlotte location we went to is only a few hours away and we heard it’s a great place to go for the holidays. There are eleven lodges located in the United States and you can visit greatwolf.com to find a location near you.
What are your family vacation plans for this summer?
