The Rocky Mountains will welcome its first Great Wolf Lodge in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in late 2016. Located at the eastern foot of the Rocky Mountains, just south of Denver, Colorado Springs is near Pikes Peak National Forest and the Garden of the Gods, making it a popular family vacation destination.
The opening of Great Wolf Lodge Southern California in early 2016 marks a new era of expansion and growth for Great Wolf Resorts. Located in Garden Grove, near Anaheim and in the heart of family vacation mecca, Great Wolf Resort Southern California is the first indoor water park in California. It is also the company’s first California resort and its largest, with 105,000 square feet of water park thrills.
Also opening in 2006 was Great Wolf Lodge Cincinnati/Mason, located in “Ohio’s Largest Playground.” It is touted as one of four regional attractions by the city of Mason, along with the Golf Center at Kings Island and the annual Western & Southern Open.
Coming on the heels of the Williamsburg opening, Great Wolf Lodge Pocono Mountains also opened in 2005 in one of the East Coast’s most popular, traditional family vacation areas. Ideally situated to capture the New York City vacation market.
Great Wolf Lodge Williamsburg, built in 2005, is listed as one of the five top things to do in Williamsburg by VisitWilliamsburg.com. Located in America’s Historic Triangle of Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown, it was Great Wolf Resorts’ first East Coast location.
Great Wolf Lodge Traverse City was built in 2003. Known for its ideal location and beautiful natural attractions, including Lake Superior beaches, vineyards, National Lakeshore and downhill skiing, Traverse City was named the number two small town travel destination in the United States by TripAdvisor and one of the top 10 places to retire by U.S. News. It is ideally located to draw families from both Chicago and Detroit.
As Great Wolf Resorts realized that this fully integrated vacation experience would be a hit in other markets, it chose Sandusky, Ohio, a family vacation mecca located half way between Cleveland and Toledo for its second Great Wolf Lodge. Offering the same first-class service and amenities as the property in Wisconsin Dells, Great Wolf Lodge Sandusky is now listed as one of the top ten things to do in Sandusky by TripAdvisor.
Built in 1997, Great Wolf Lodge Wisconsin Dells is Great Wolf Resorts’ flagship property. Located in the Waterpark Capital of the World, its combination of great lodgings, attractions, activities and indoor water park was so popular, it was quickly expanded from 117 suites with 20,000 square feet of water park space to 437 suites with around 76,000 square feet of water park space.
