Head to the basement level of the lodge where kids can enjoy a full arcade, mini golfing, bowling and a full Build-a-Bear workshop featuring some of the lodge’s own characters, like Sammy the Squirrel. Great Wolf Lodge makes participating in their many attractions easy with the purchase of a Paw Pass, which provides kids with arcade tokens, candy, swim goggles and more.

Preorder wine pairings with charcuterie or chocolate-covered strawberries and have it delivered directly to your suite. Don’t worry about waking the kids, the resort will text you when they’re at the door instead of knocking!
