Our 3rd Year in a Row Visiting Great Wolf Lodge

I’ve talked about Great Wolf Lodge before, with our first visit here for Jack’s 4th birthday and then a follow up visit for Jack’s 5th birthday. We were going to skip it this year, because we had a kid birthday party for Jack, but then they were running a really good special and I decided to jump on it.

What can I say… the winter was long and I really like having something fun to look forward to!

We usually would visit from Friday to Saturday because the pricing is better, but by using a ‘Book Early and Save’ deal, we were able to get a Saturday to Sunday reservation for less than usual. We drove there on Saturday morning, checked in, took a few ‘howl’ photos, and went to the water park for a few hours of fun.

We got dinner late (and it was truly awful with terrible service) at a nearby Red, Hot and Blue and then went straight to bed. On Sunday morning we went to our favorite pancake house for breakfast. If you are in the area, we highly recommend the Astronomical Pancake House for breakfast. It’s all the goodness of a diner, but much more clean!

And LOOK at these amazing waffles that I ate:

SO, GOOD!

After stuffing ourselves full of coffee and food, we put our bathing suits back on. Because that’s what you want to do for some total body confidence…

Anywhoo, we spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon at the water park. Even after 3 years it was so much fun! Jack loves the Fort Mackenzie tree house area with water spewing around everywhere and interactive water toys to play with. We all loved the water slides, especially Water Canyon Run where the three of us hurtled down a dark tube while screaming at the top of our lungs. When we were done, we threw on some comfy clothes for the ride home and took one more quick photo on the way out…

All in all, it was a great weekend and really helped get rid of some of that winter funk we were feeling!

Do you have someplace you return to again and again? For us it’s usually Ocean City, but now I’m adding Great Wolf Lodge to that list!
