Our Visit To The Great Wolf Lodge - Charlotte, NC

Last weekend, Darren and I wanted to do something a little different from the usual. We knew we wanted to go to Charlotte because we've traveled there without the kids, in the past, and always found ourselves saying we desired to bring them along one day, not to mention, there is so much to do in Charlotte. This time around, we had a few things planned that were definitely KID FRIENDLY. First up, we stayed one night at "The Great Wolf Lodge". The Great Wolf Lodge adventure begins in their massive, 84-degree indoor water park. We splashed the day away in over 80,000 square feet of water-packed excitement, including jaw-dropping slides for thrill seekers or zero-depth entry areas for little ones. Outside the water park , the fun continues. We played in the arcade, bowled in the "no shoe rental" policy alley, grabbed a wand and battled a dragon in MagiQuest and treated the kids to some ice cream before gathering our family in the Grand Lobby for nightly fireside story time, the perfect ending to a Great Wolf day.

Our experience there was very pleasurable. It was non-stop, kid friendly, age appropriate fun. Some of the things we did NOT get to take advantage of were putt-putt, kids "scoop" day spa, the fitness room, and the arts and craft room. We did make sure to visit their on-site Dunkin Donuts for an iced coffee though. :)

If you've heard of this place and are considering it, I give it two thumbs up, especially for kids 10 and under.

Enjoy viewing the photos.
