Have the kids started asking about Halloween costumes yet? Because the holiday will be here before we know it. In just a little more than one month from today, Great Wolf Lodge’s Howl-O-Ween event kicks off and families should book soon if they want to get in on the spooktacular fun. With 11 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada — and a new one coming to Southern California in 2016! — Great Wolf Lodge is a resort that is convenient and super kid-friendly.
This year, from October 9 to 31, enjoy the resort’s Howl-O-Ween event with your family. From sweet treats to ghost stories, there’s fun for kids of every age.
Nightly Costume Parade
Every night, kids (and parents!) can dress up in their costume and strut their stuff throughout the lodge. Snap photos and have fun — kids also receive a prize for participating!
Monster Bash Dance Party
Every Friday and Saturday throughout Howl-O-Ween, kids of all ages can shake it at the Monster Bash Dance Party in the main lobby. Games and prizes will also add to the ghostly fun!
Spooktacular Story Time
Great Wolf Lodge is known for its nightly Great Clock Tower Show at 8 p.m., and during October, families can stick around for even more fun with Spooktacular Story Time. Your favorite characters will be there, telling ghoulish tales that are sure to scare even the bravest (not really, this is a family place).
Throw on your costume and grab your bags, pillowcases or whatever you can find to fill with candy. The Trick-or-Treat Trail is a safe and fun way for kids to get candy while meeting their favorite Great Wolf characters. (Sorry parents, the treats are only for the kids!)
Rates start from just $199 per night for the event, but vary according to location. For more information on the resorts, see Great Wolf Lodge.
