Have you ever stayed in a wolf’s lodge with all the fun under one roof? Well, I have—it was called the Great Wolf Lodge. I went just before New Year’s for two days, Dec. 28 and 29, 2019. There are other locations for the lodge in states such as California, Texas and Washington. I went to the one in Scottsdale at Talking Stick.

The Great Wolf Lodge’s attractions include an indoor waterpark, rock climbing, a ropes course, mini golf, a bowling alley, quest adventures, mining and mirror maze activities, and arcades. The waterpark is called Wiley’s Waterpark, with slides of different sizes, pools, and splash pads. There is a whole facility or a big room dedicated to the waterpark. There is activities for all varying ages. The usual park hours are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday to Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Sometimes the hourschange based on season or special occasions.

There are different suites to choose there. For example, you could choose different themed rooms, like forest or cabin themed. Dining and shopping is also all within the lodge. They have restaurants and cafés, they even have Dunkin’ Donuts! The shopping place includes markets,candy shops, and gift shops, including Build-a-Bear Workshop.
