I partnered with the Great Wolf Lodge on this post. All thoughts and opinions are my very own.
For the month of October, Great Wolf Lodge is transforming its resort into a family-friendly Halloween experience! Last weekend our family got a chance to check it out at the Great Wolf Lodge in La Grange, Georgia and we had an absolute blast! Now that Bennett is 4 years old, he’s starting to understand Halloween a little bit more and has been talking about it non-stop for the past few weeks. When I told him we were going to Great Wolf Lodge and they have Halloween activities, he nearly lost his mind.
From the moment we stepped foot on the property, the resort is decked out in all kinds of fall and Halloween-inspired decor! As you enter the resort property, there are pumpkins, scarecrows and even a HUGE wolf sculpture made of pumpkins as soon as you enter the doors of the lobby!
While we were there, we got to enjoy everything the waterpark normally has to offer, but it was so great to have all the Halloween-themed activities to do afterwards! One of the first activities we did was the Trick or Treat Trail that was set up all along the lodge. Costumes are encouraged, but definitely not mandatory. They had several areas set up where the kids could trick-or-treat with a Halloween bag they were given (and don’t worry, non-food/candy items were available too!)
Bennett loved this part and wanted to take pictures with every dressed up staff person he met along the way. We also stopped in the Kids Camp area where they were playing a game of Boo BINGO, where if you got five in a row on your BINGO card, you had to yell out “Boo!” (Bennett really loved this part, even though he never actually got a BINGO).
After BINGO was over, the kids got a chance to decorate a squishy pumpkin and then the staff raced them down the waterslide. If your pumpkin was the waterslide winner, you got a prize!
I also loved that the resort had some Halloween treats for the adults as well, starting with the cocktail menu! My favorite was the Spooky Mule-an apple whiskey and coconut rum concoction that was served with a big syringe of Grenadine (blood) that you mixed in. It was so delicious and fun to drink! Bennett also got his own special drink called Bug Guts- which was lemonade, Huckleberry, blue curaçao, and pineapple juice topped with gummy worms!
Later that evening, Bennett changed into his pajamas (Halloween pajamas of course) and we headed to the lobby for a Monster Bash Dance Party where he danced to all kinds of fun songs before going to bed.
On our last morning at Great Wolf Lodge, we went to a Character Breakfast and got a chance to meet some of the characters like Wiley the Wolf and Violet the Wolf. Bennett is in the phase of being scared of dress-up characters, but Sydney really enjoyed them, LOL.
All of the Howl-O-Ween activities will be going on for the entire month of October and are all included for no extra charge. We had so much fun and it definitely got in the Halloween spirit! I’m sure next October, Bennett is going to ask about the Great Wolf Lodge, because we had such a memorable trip! If you are in the Atlanta area and you are looking for something fun to do with the family this fall, be sure to check out Great Wolf Lodge in La Grange, its only about an hour and a half from Atlanta. There are also several Great Wolf Lodges located throughout the country, so check out the website for the closest location near you!
