On the lamb with grandkids at Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City! I think it is safe to say we all had fun. The people there were just awesome. I can also tell you that this place is very attentive to family fun. The day before our trip, I snagged my granddaughter at school and headed to my sister’s house in Kansas. We then loaded up the kids AND what looked like enough stuff to last a week (the kids called it necessities) the next morning for our trip to KC.
The Lodge is such an impressive sight… A real rustic retreat in the big city. We got checked in and headed to our family suite with 3 (yes 3} large overstacked luggage carts. The room was very spacious and clean. Of course the first thing that had to be taken care of was eating… wow, they are always hungry! We headed to Camp Critter Bar and Grille. I think it was great to eat there. After the drive, we did not want to get out to find a restaurant. Very decent price for the 5 of us and the decor was fun.
Of course the main attraction is the Waterpark and we made our way there for some afternoon fun.
Since they were having a Howl-0-Ween celebration we headed back up to our room to get ready for the festivities. We grabbed some Pizza from their Hungry As A Wolf takeout menu from Camp Critter because the kids were hungry again! The kids then went on a trick or Treat trail to various places thru the lodge.
Next it was Story Time and the Dance Bash with some of the crew and wildlife at the lodge.
Now… both of the “Old” adults have proof that we outlasted the kids One was still awake but was out soon after the pic.!
Now what do you think the first thing our Teen and Tweens did when they woke up the next morning? Well… on their phones, of course!
The next day we took a ride (by train) out to the Pumpkin Patch where the kids picked a pumpkin out. Then back to the Cub Club where they decorated their pumpkins.
After another trip to the water park, I took the girls for a manicure at Scoops Kid Spa! They had a wonderful time and Corie took great care of them. That lady gets my 5 STAR for the way she treated Shaela and Shelsie.
Of course, we did not leave Trenton out. He went on a date with his grandma (my sis) down at Northern Lights Arcade.
We finished off the day attending another Dance Bash. Young and old get into the party mode… especially when a song from “Frozen” comes on. Check out this video… really fun animated singing and dancing!
So, my thoughts are…
Staff is very friendly and attentive. I have already mentioned Corie down at Scoops Kid Spa. I also thought manager, Pete, was awesome. We saw him several times during the weekend and he always was friendly with a huge smile. Then there was Mike, Steve, and… well I could go on. Hmmm! Can I just give all the staff a 5 STAR.
Lodge was clean and room was very roomy. There are plenty of extra things for the kids to do, but the prices are something you should consider before you go. Great Wolf Lodge is really ideal for the young ones….even for tweens and teens. Let’s face it… If the kids are having fun, the adults will have fun.
The water park has several slides for all ages (and levels of courage). Plenty of safe climbing, swimming, and all around relaxing. Towels are furnished, so you don’t have to drag them from your room. Lot’s of fun with smiles, laughs and screams. Oh! Wait! That was me screaming… yeah, the kids convinced me to go down one of the big slides. My first and last time. I will leave that up to the younger ones from now on.
Did we have FUN!!!???
I think you could say that!
We woke up our last morning and let the kids have one more wet and wild time in the water park before we headed for home. The adults were not the only ones worn out when we left…
