August 12: #GWLchat Twitter Party

With just a few weeks left in August, you might be wondering where summer went. Maybe you had every intention of going on a trip or getaway, but time just got away.

Don’t give up! Next Tuesday, August 12, join Great Wolf Lodge as we co-host a Twitter party with tips, ideas and inspiration for some end-of-summer fun!

We are excited to co-host this event with Dave Parfitt (@AdventuresByDad), a father of two, family travel writer and blogger, and Great Wolf Lodge Ask-A-Mom panelist. Dave has a passion for travel and loves to make every day an adventure. He will be asking and answering questions live on location from Great Wolf Lodge Pocono Mountains!

Panelists: @colavito, @anitra@DadLogic

Things to know about a Twitter party:

What is it? A Twitter party is pre-planned question and answer chat that takes place on Twitter, organized with a specific hashtag: #GWLchat.

Why should I participate? Twitter parties are a great way to connect with those who have similar interests. Everyone has their tips and tricks when it comes to family vacations, and this is your chance to share your own family vacation experience and, most importantly, learn from others. In addition, we’ll be randomly selecting one person who participates in the Twitter party and uses the hashtag #GWLchat to receive a $250 Great Wolf Lodge gift card! Official rules can be found here.

How do I participate?

1. Log in to Twitter before the chat starts at 12:00 pm ET and be sure to follow @GreatWolfLodge and @AdventuresByDad.

2. Head over to http://twitter.com. Enter the hashtag #GWLchat into the search bar and select the "All" search option to follow the chat in real time.

3. Remember to always add the hashtag #GWLchat to your tweets.

4. When one of the hosts asks a question, share your answer!  The questions will conveniently be numbered 1-6 (e.g. Q1: What is your favorite indoor water park resort?). When you answer, please note which question you are answering by using the same numbering system (e.g. A1: Great Wolf Lodge). Be sure to include the hashtag #GWLchat.

5. Type #GWLchat into the search bar on Twitter to follow all of the tweets from the party. Please note, all tweets are subject to our social media terms and conditions and may be used in any and all media including editorial.
