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!
Families can escape to Great Wolf Lodge to swim, splash and slide. The centerpiece of the resort is the extensive 84-degree indoor water park, complete with water slides, a massive wave pool, a gentle lazy river, interactive pools.
Extending far beyond being just a water park, Great Wolf Lodge also offers families quality accommodations, exceptional service, a multitude of dining options, popular indoor arcade games and more.
There’s something for the entire family at Great Wolf Lodge, from PJ parties and nightly story time for kids to spa programming and evening “wine down” packages for adults.
