Great Wolf Lodge—Wisconsin Dells, Wi
It’s no surprise to fans of the Great Wolf Lodge that their waterparks are among the most beloved in the country: with a range of splash-tivity from toddler to teen (and grown-up kids, too) including log walks, a water tornado, wave pool and water fort. Activities like character story times, an arcade and craft times and the cutely-themed lodging means the fun doesn’t stop once the bathing suits dry.
Good to know: Word on the midwestern street is that the Great Wolf Lodge is opening a new location in Bloomington, Mn near Mall of America sometime in 2017!
