My kids are on spring break and as a special treat last week I took them both to Great Wolf Lodge in Pennsylvania for one night. Great Wolf Lodge is a hotel with a fabulous indoor water park. We live just an hour and half from Great Wolf Lodge so for us it is an easy one night trip.
The day of arrival you can enter the water park at 1:00 pm. We wore our swimsuits in the car and went straight into the park. Although there are snacks in the park, I brought a small cooler with healthy snacks, sandwiches and beverages. The park was full of families with kids. My son especially loved all the big slides and my daughter loved the wave pool.
After about 5 hours we headed back to our room to shower and change for dinner. They have a nice all you can eat buffet. I love this because there is no waiting at all for the food, and they did have much healthier options here than available in the actual park. If you want there is also Magic Quest in the halls of the hotel as well as a big arcade.
The next day we grabbed some doughnuts and headed straight back into the park when it opened at 9:00 am. By 1:00 Mom was ready to head home. After a quick shower in the changing rooms we grabbed a snack at the Starbucks in the lobby and headed back home.
Great Wolf Lodge makes Family Travel easy and fun!
