Visit YouTube and search “Great Wolf Lodge Surprise”.  You will find page after page filled with videos of parents surprising their kids with a trip to Great Wolf Lodge.

What a fun idea.  Plan a trip to the lodge.  Scheme and brainstorm.  Find some fun way to tell the family about it—a fun riddle in a Christmas present or a birthday card.  Or wait altogether and tell them about it as you are on your way to the lodge.  Then record it.  Brilliant.

So brilliant that we decided to make a contest out of it.



For two weeks, we’ve encouraged Facebook fans and Twitter followers to upload their own version of a Great Wolf Lodge surprise video to our contest app on Facebook.  And upload they did.  We received a ton of great videos (stay tuned, we will highlight some of the top contenders on Facebook and Twitter).  A team of Great Wolf Lodge judges gathered together in a room and watched one by one.  We laughed. We cried. We laughed some more.

They were all so good.  Eventually we narrowed it down to our top 5 finalists.  Now it’s your turn.  Head to our Video Contest app on our Facebook page. Watch all five videos (I dare you not to laugh or cry).  Then vote for your favorite.  You can vote once every 24 hours from now until 5:00pm EST on Wednesday, March 21st.

Be sure to share the contest with your friends and family so they can take part in the fun.

Happy voting!
