Editor’s Review of Six Flags Great Escape Lodge & Indoor Waterpark
Lake George is nestled in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains, so the property theme follows suit. Lodge-style decor carries throughout four floors of guest rooms and the lobby, with its floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and a high ceiling with exposed wood beams. Other property amenities and features include the Tranquility Spa, a fitness center, an arcade, two gift shops, and a cozy library area with fireplace. On-site, there are three ... more dining facilities; the highlight of these being Johnny Rockets.
The resort's Kids' Club runs character meet-and-greets throughout the day, as well as games, contests, arts, crafts and scavenger hunts. There are both free and fee-based programs throughout the day which provide interaction with several "Scooby Doo" characters, plus the park's own "Timbertown" characters.
From the Lodge, it's a two-minute drive -- or 10-minute walk -- to The Great Escape & Splashwater Kingdom. This combination theme park and water park is open seasonally, between late May and early September. The theme park alone is open on select weekends for Halloween and holiday celebrations.

Took the family for 2 nights to The Great Escape Lodge in Queensbury, NY this past week. It was the most awful hotel experience I have ever had! We arrived around 2pm and our room was ready so we checked in. Within 20 minutes ...Read full review

RoomsThe Adirondack-themed lodge is a completely non-smoking property featuring 200 guest suites, 180 of which are one-room family suites which can accommodate up to six guests. The remaining twenty suites with kitchenettes have two rooms each, accommodating up to 12 guests.
Standard suites offer two queen beds, with a pullout couch in a seating area separated by a half-wall. The lodge decor is omnipresent and detailed -- there were even snowshoes hanging on the wall of our room. The color scheme is warm and comfortable: forest green, burgundy and taupe. The plaid bedspreads were worn, but the beds themselves were comfortable.
Our room was spacious, and the layout was smart. Along one wall were compartmentalized sections with a clothes rack and luggage rack in one space, the bathroom sink with marble counter top in the middle, and the microwave and mini fridge in the third. Having the bathroom sink apart from the rest of the bathroom is convenient and time-efficient.
Guests are asked to observe quiet hours between 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. The lodge faces the I-87 highway, and even with the fan running, we could hear vehicular noise. The hard-wired internet connection, while free, was slow and unreliable. Check-in time is 4 p.m. and check out is 11 a.m.
