About Great Wolf Lodge Wisconsin Dells

My family has visited a number of resorts in the Wisconsin Dells and we believe this is the Dells' best large resort for toddlers and preschoolers. Older kids will find plenty to enjoy -- especially with the sprawling water park and bling-y arcade -- but it's the younger ones who will be most excited by the atmosphere and activities. They love the evening programs in front of the giant lobby clock, the woodsy decor, seasonal fun, ice-cream-themed kids' spa, and the many ways they cater to children.

It's a formula that obviously works since this resort sparked the Great Wolf Lodge chain that now includes a dozen family-focused resorts across the country.

Highlights include an 80,000-square-foot indoor water park with funnel slide, wave pool and tube slides; an animated song and story hour each night in the lobby; Magic Quest, an interactive game with computerized wands to activate wizards, fairies and dragons.; bubblegum-scented shower gel in each room and an ice-cream-themed spa experience for kids (plus a grown-up one for parents); family suites with wolf-dens, a room within a room that has woodsy-themed bunk beds and TVs; playful decor with lights and objects that can activated by Wizard Quest wands; seasonal programming and crafts; and kid-friendly dining. What else can any family ask for?

While this resort is big with 436 rooms, it's less overwhelming than the Dells' largest resorts. It's manageable and easy to navigate. The resort also excels at seasonal decor -- especially when it comes to kids whose eyes still sparkle at the mention of Santa. The entire lobby becomes a Christmas village in December complete with snow.

Bottom line: Great Wolf is a kickback, easy getaway any time of year for burrowing and enjoying your cubs -- especially in winter when cabin fever hits.

    Amazing service and waterpark!
    by suziegirl
    The check in service was amazing, fast and professional. My 75 year old mother paid for the trip. My mother was able to go on the slides and play basketball in the pool, relax and have a great time. The children had a ball in pools and were able to go on some slides too. Overall an amazing experience for the whole family. ... read more
