{Great Wolf Lodge} Travel Diary

I went on vacation!! My parents took my brothers on a surprise two-day trip to Great Wolf Lodge a few weeks ago. I had so much fun and decided to share my adventures with you!! If you don’t know what Great Wolf Lodge is it is an indoor water park and lodge. Let me show you the pictures now!

This first picture is of a random corner of a light, which I thought looked cool XD

Here is the tiny closet coat hanger area and our little safe.

This is the wallpaper in both bathrooms. The whole suite was very cabinย themed.

Here are the cute little lotions and soaps. They smelled good!

Yummy food in the mini fridge. We didn’t buy our food there, my mom brought all our food with us. We had grapes, yogurt, salad, cream cheese, and lots of other deliciousness:)

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here are the cups and coffee. It looked cute and I couldn’t refuse a picture.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here are two of the beds. The one with the dolls is mine and the other one is my brothers’.

This is the fireplace and television. We didn’t end up using the fireplace because it was super warm. On Wednesday I watched a Full House rerun on one of the TVs. I fell in love and I came home and started watching Fuller House. I finished the season now ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

This is the living ย room where we ate and had devotions.

Here is our cute little balcony. On Tuesday it was cold enough to keep our water and juice outside, but on Wednesday it was 69 degrees!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

We were on the highest floor, but that didn’t bother me. Guess what? While we were there, there was a tornado warning. (Two theres next to each other. Is that grammatical??) It was a bit scary. Fortunately, nothing happened and God protected us.

Here are the steps to the loft.

This is the loft. My parents slept here, it looks cozy.

There was a little sink alcove separated from the toilet.

Here is the view from the loft. The awesome part is that we were upgraded for free! We just had a normal room, but since we came on an off week (when not many people were here) they upgraded us to the loft room, which would have been more money.

We got these really cute wolf ears when we checked in. I love mine!

We visited the exercising room Tuesday night. They had lots of other stuff to do, like a spa and arcade but we just went to the water park.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Welcome to Great Wolf Lodge Water Park! They have a giant bucket that fills up and spills every ten minutes or so. It is a blast to be right in the water there.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here is the play area without a ton of water spilling. There were tons of things to do in the play set.

This is the very pretty wave pool.

Story time:

As you know there was a tornado when we went. It was Wednesday night (the night of ย the tornado) and all of a sudden all the fire alarms started to go off in the whole building.ย It was very loud. We stated to head toward the doors that sectioned the hotel apart from the water park. Nobody knew why the alarms were going off, but the staff said everyone needed to stay inside the water park. So we were stuck inside. All the slides and pools were still open, so my family started going on the rides.

I had no clue how long we would be there so I plopped down and felt the wave wash over me. It was very calming and relaxing. A few minutes later the alarms stopped and we could leave. Apparently, a pipe had burst and had caused a few inches of water to spread all over the floor of the lobby. Firemen came and cleaned everything up. Interesting fact: In the case of a fire being in the water park was the safest.

Here is the wave pool with actually waves! I felt like I was at a very clean and clear beach. I tried to body surf-that didn’t really wok out, though.

Here is an overview of the two tiny slides and water center play area.

The blue slide pictured is my second favorite slide. When you get in it you are closed in for a little bit and then it opens up and the top comes of and you can somewhat see the water park.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

There were a lot of steps! It was 90 steps to the two highest ones. There was a family ride where the whole family can fit in the tube and you go down together. They also had double and single tubes for the smaller slides.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This is the coolest waterside!! I hateย rollercoasters but this was really fun. *Spoiler* There is a drop but it wasn’t that bad. You fall into this giant funnel (shown above) and you slide up the walls in a tube. It holds a maximum of four people per tube.

Story time:

As I said, I hate rollercoasters, drops, loops, etc. My family forced me to go on this ride the first time (I loved it after that). So we were standing in line and I was protesting going on it. The people before us where two teenage boys. They went down and they started screaming hysterically (like girly high-pitched screams) and I was like no no, I’m not going! Well, I did anyway and had a blast. At the bottom my mom, who hadn’t gone, said she had talked to the boys in front of us. She said they came here a lot and that they had screamed really loud just to scareย me. I didn’t see them after that. It was very funny, though.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here is the wave simulator. It was cool, but hard to do and a bit intimidating.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

If your tall like me….well it makes obstacle courses like these fun and very challenging. I will admit I fell off multiple times.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here is a very bad picture of the lazy river. It was fun to go around and you could come off one of the slides and just float right into the lazy river.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This is the one and only doll picture I have. I brought my dolls hoping to get a lot of pictures and took one XD #blogginggoals

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This was my breakfast on our last day.ย I had Trader Joe’s yogurt and granola. Along with my daily banana and my dad bought us donuts! (I should become a food blogger right? I’m being sarcastic:)

  1. WOW! Sounds like you had a BLAST! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I love hotels. XD I like all the little lotions and stuff. ๐Ÿ˜› We have a waterpark in our area and it’s AWESOME! It’s not a Great Wold Lodge though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. DONUTS!!! LOL! XD
    That place looks really cool! And that’s so funny (and kinda rude) that those boys screamed like that just to scare you. I probably would have died hearing them or thought they were just being crazy XD

  3. I love Great wolf Lodge! When I went there, we got the jucuzzi room. It was awesome! We were crammed together because mom, dad, twin, 2 older sisters and myself were there.

  4. I love the Great Wolf Lodge! Our parents surprised us with a visit there last December. (We actually thought we were going to church!). My brother and I share a wand for MagiQuest.
