My favorite memory from Great Wolf Lodge has to be the first time we visited. There were two specific events during that time that stuck in my head.

The first was when we arrived; I brought my son and his best friend for his birthday weekend. They were really excited when we got there, they were running around looking at everything in the lobby and touching everything they could. Our room was on the second floor, we grabbed our bags and walked up to the second floor. When we got up there we passed the window into the waterpark and all I heard was “WHOA” really loud from both the kids. They were so excited to get in there and play, they were almost ready to change in the hall. I couldn’t open the door to the room fast enough.

The thing that stuck in my head is the look on their faces the first time they saw it, they were so excited, amazed and anxious to have fun. They didn’t want to leave. We spent hours in the waterpark that first day. We almost missed dinner because it is hard to keep track of time when you are having that much fun.

The second thing I remember from that trip was when I was in the lazy river with my son, there are buckets that fill up and dump on you as you are going along. At one point I turned around and saw this man behind me starting to relax in his tube, he finally laid back and got comfy.  As soon as he leaned back a huge bucket dumped right in his face. It startled him so much that he jumped backwards out of his tube. I guess he didn’t know the buckets were there. It was such great timing that the second he relaxed the bucket tipped over. It was so funny. The kids couldn’t stop laughing.

Our entire weekend both the kids always had a smile on their face and never stopped laughing. I love how everyone there tries so hard to do anything they can to make the kids happy.
