Now you can enjoy Great Wolf Lodge’s water park without staying the night

Great Wolf Lodge has announced a new nationwide water park day pass program. Though the water park used to be available only to overnight guests of the resort, this new program gives families the option of spending a quick, fun day at the water park without staying overnight.

“We believe time together as a family is a precious commodity, and the ability to slip away for day, or even a few hours, to have fun at our waterparks is something we feel families will be excited about,” shared Murray Hennessy, chief executive officer for Great Wolf Resorts. “While an overnight stay provides families with the most immersive and comprehensive Great Wolf Lodge experience, we recognize that many families are pressed for time and can’t get away for a night, so we wanted to provide another option.”

The new passes are starting at $50 per person.
