Did you know that there is a Great Wolf Lodge, halfway between Portland and Seattle?
We went to the Great Wolf Lodge a few times about a year ago. Our kids loved it and we did too. At the time we were living right outside of Portland, OR so we visited the one up in Washington, Grand Mound. It had been a very cold winter and it was very refreshing to step into their water park that they keep extremely warm. I think they keep it at 78 degrees.The rooms were awesome. There was a refrigerator and microwave. The kids had a bunk area with their own tv. This may not sound like much but what a difference it makes to have that little separate area!
There were also wall hangings, treasure boxes, and other strange things that would “go off” when you waved a magic wand at them. My kids loved this feature! You can get a wand in their magic shop.
The actual water park had tons to do. A kiddie area, wave pool, body slides, tube slides, hot tub and a swimming area with basketball and lily pads to cross.
I would definitely recommend this. It is expensive so be sure to sign up for their mailing list to get good deals. We were able to get a deal that they mailed to us for $175 a night and another time we used the military discount and got the room for $170 a night. Both times we were able to get this rate on a bunk room.
It is expensive to eat at the actually hotel. Go into town to eat!
