GreatWolfLodge-RedOutlineLogoMADISON, Wis. — Just in time for summer vacation planning, Great Wolf Resorts, Inc., is adding more new attractions and guest experiences to its indoor waterpark resorts than ever before. With this multimillion dollar investment, guests visiting any of the 11 Great Wolf Lodge properties this year will discover something new, from water slides and dining, to shopping and interactive attractions.

“We are focused on providing fun-filled experiences for the entire family in the waterpark and throughout the entire resort,” said Tim Black, chief operating officer, Great Wolf Resorts. “This year our guests will find something new at each of our properties. Our goal is to create memorable vacations for guests of all ages and these brand-wide additions are great examples of how we do just that.”

Traverse City, Mich. will offer a brand new way to get wet. The River Canyon Run takes parties of three to four people at a time sliding and winding down a long indoor tunnel that stretches outside the resort and then back in, culminating in a final splash.

Ten Paw Alley bowling is coming to Traverse City, complete with balls that are perfect for little hands. The six-lane alley, with a “no rental shoes allowed” policy will soon debut at the resort. The resort is also expanding Scooops Kid Spa, where young girls can enjoy even more ice cream-themed manicure and pedicure services in the sweet place that is all their own.

The Howl at the Moon Glow Golf experience, is expanding to Grand Mound, Wash. and Mason, Ohio in May. Families will putt their way through a forest filled with woodland creatures, glowing golf balls and howls of delight.

The Great Wolf Kids Store will open at the resorts in Grand Mound, Wash.; Mason, Ohio; Williamsburg, Va; Concord, N.C.; and the Pocono Mountains, Pa. in May. The shopping experience will feature “Creation Stations” so children can stuff their own Great Wolf Kids character to take home. Guests will also be able to decorate “like me” shirts — one to wear and one to share with their new stuffed friend.

A new “Hungry as a Wolf” family-style dining option allows guests to pick up and go with a meal that’s as focused on value as it is on taste at the resorts in Grand Mound, Wash., Grapevine, Texas and Concord, N.C. The Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, Texas, features a the brand new outdoor Grill that offers an All-American bar and grill dining experience, overlooking the outdoor pool – but comfortably in the shade.

Breakfast from Dunkin’ Donuts will soon join the Lodges in Concord, N.C., Williamsburg, Va. and Traverse City, Mich. The Lodge in Grand Mound, Wash. will debut the Wake up with Wiley (and Friends) character breakfast buffet. The new dining experience will bring the Great Wolf Lodge characters together each morning for a breakfast that is as delicious as it is fun.

The resorts in the Pocono Mountains, Pa., Williamsburg, Va., and Traverse City, Mich., will receive the exclusive new Great Wolf Lodge Cabin Comfort Collection mattresses, new sleeper sofas and carpet in all of the guest suites. There are 3,000 new televisions that will be added across the brand along with energy-saving automatic thermostats in guest suites. These are all just a few examples of how Great Wolf Lodge continues to keep its resorts modern, inviting and comfortable.
