Day 1: Splish & Splash At Great Wolf Lodge
- Explore a four-story water fort treehouse
- Catch waves at Slap Tail Pond
- Howl In One Mini Golf & Northern Lights Arcade
The indoor water park at Great Wolf Lodge is full of activities to keep you and your little ones busy for hours. One highlight is one of the best water treehouses you’ve ever seen -- Fort Mackenzie! With interactive water toys and kid-activated splash features, there is endless fun!
Great Wolf Lodge is known for its fun and thrilling waterslides. Triple Thunder will find you in a tube, dropping into three successive waterslide features. Before making a splash at the end, you'll find yourself twisting and gliding up the slides of the funnel.
In Slap Tail Pond, you’ll think you’re at the ocean, catching waves and splashing around. The pool ranges from zero-depth-entry shallows to five feet deep, so there’s a safe place for every age and ability level.
No family vacation is complete without a round of mini golf! Be sure to reserve your tee time for 9 holes of play with sand traps, tricky shots, giant animals and ball-eating fish. The course is challenging enough for skilled players and easy enough for beginning putters to enjoy!
The Northern Lights Arcade is packed with incredible games to entertain the entire family. The arcade is filled with the action and excitement of the newest and best arcade games, and great prizes, too! It’s open 24-hours, so the fun never ends.
River Canyon Run is a group raft ride, so your whole family fits on a single tube for the twisting, gliding, raft-riding adventure of your life!
When you’re ready to put your feet up, relax in a tube as the kids splash around you in Crooked Creek. Allow the gentle current of this lazy river push you around the resort.
The MagiQuest Adventure allows the kids to explore the lodge while they have the adventure of a lifetime. MagiQuest turns Great Wolf Lodge into a live-action game, with children choosing a special magic wand, topping it off with extra powers, and embarking on a quest in the realm of imagination.
The Rustic Ridge Climbing Wall is a 21-foot challenge that’s appropriate for all skill levels. Great Wolf staff will assist your family into safety harnesses and provide friendly tips for success. There are no flip flops allowed, so make sure to wear closed-toed and heeled shoes, preferably with a rubber sole.
At Ten Paw Alley, everyone will find success and fun in their lanes designed for toddlers, teens, and adults. Your whole family will find the perfect size bowling ball and enjoy some healthy competition in this group activity.
Featuring wildlife from around the world, Wild Animal Safari is a wholesome family adventure. While exploring the 500-acre park, you’ll get up close and personal with hundreds of animals and 70 different species. Take your personal vehicle or a rented zebra van on a winding trail through the park. When you purchase tickets, be sure to purchase bags of grass pellets for the animals, who will flock to your vehicle for a treat!
Encounter the ancient world through history and culture at Biblical History Center. Through authentic archeological replicas, Biblical meal presentations, daily life artifacts, lectures and personal experiences, ancient Middle Eastern life is revived. Children can bake bread like ancient nomadic people in the Shepherd’s Bread Experience and explore archeology and history in the Kid’s Dig.
Enjoy some fresh air and exercise at LaGrange’s downtown park. Southbend Park is beautifully landscaped with huge age-appropriate playgrounds, a dog park and skatepark. The park also has a pavilion and plenty of seating and green space. It’s a wonderful place for a picnic or snack, so grab food or dessert from a downtown spot and enjoy it while you enjoy the park.
