My family and I recently had the pleasure of heading to Great Wolf Lodge in Massachusetts for the weekend. We had so much fun playing in the water park, checking out all the activities, eating amazing food and learning all about their new Summer Camp-In experience which can read about HERE.
I also came away from the weekend with 15 tips for your own stay at Great Wolf Lodge!
Tips for your stay
Want to go a certain time of year? Make sure you plan accordingly since many popular times (school vacations, holidays) tend to book up fast. So book your stay early!
Make sure that you pack accordingly, especially for children. Changes of clothes, bathing suits, swim diapers and sandals were staples in my luggage when we went. If you forget your bathing suit don’t worry, the lodge has a bathing suit shop located right by the water park.
Get to water park in the morning
In order to secure your spot. Or you can rent a cabana for the day which guarantees that you will have a nice spot to set up for the day.
Paw Passes are worth it
If you plan on doing other activities at the lodge then Paw Passes are for you. There are different options to chose from but some activities included are Magiquest game, arcade credits and even a cup of candy.
Rooms have fridges
This was especially important for us because we needed whole milk on hand for Avery. You can also put drinks and snacks in it to keep the kids happy!
Don’t forget the ears
My daughter is still obsessed with these ears and wears them all day, every day.
You can use the water park before your room is ready
You can check in early, starting at 1 pm the day of your check in, to your room and go play in the water park before your room is officially ready.
Need caffeine? No problem
Imagine my surprise when I discovered a Dunkin Donuts in the lobby at The Great Wolf Lodge in Massachusetts. Great way to get my caffeine fix in in the morning and prepare for the busy day.
They have towels for the water park
The great thing about this lodge is you don’t have to bring towel, you can get them outside the water park. Just make sure you return them or you will be charged
MagiQuest is a must
Also know that it takes a little while to complete but really fun for the kids to do. To learn more about MagiQuest check it out HERE.
Life jackets are available
Need a life jacket for your little one? There are plenty stocked in the water park.
More activities then water park
In addition to the water park there is a ropes course, mini-golf, Magiquest, story time, dance parties, rock climbing, and so much more.
Multiple food options
Hungry kids? There are multiple dining options at the lodge. Something for everyone, even the pickiest of eaters.
Room key is in your bracelet
Instead of worrying about carrying a round and keeping track of your room key, they have conveniently placed your room key in your activity bracelet.
Book the family suite
In addition to being decorated for the current session (the summer camp-in is pictured) they have bunk beds for kids and plenty of room for all family members.
