It’s torture but I’m sitting at the bar in our Majestic Bear™ Suite catching up on some work after having had a blast yesterday in the indoor waterpark here at Great Wolf Lodge.  No, I’m not complaining about our Majestic Bear™ Suite.. rather the fact that I’m not in the waterpark with the kids right now.  But, they know that I have to work and I basically took yesterday off so I have to work for a few minutes today.
* OK, so now I feel like a little bit of an idiot because the ladies with housekeeping are cleaning my room while I’m sitting here working at the bar.  They are probably wondering why on EARTH I’m sitting here on the computer when I could be out enjoying the waterpark.  Oh well.. I’ll be out of here shortly.

Last time we visited Great Wolf Lodge we stayed in a Family Suite which is one room and has two queen beds, a dining table, coffee table, a TV, and a sofa bed.  Very sufficient for a family of four.  This trip however, we are staying in a Majestic Bear Suite™ which has two rooms, one with a king bed one with two queen beds, a sofa bed, a large wet bar with 6 bar stools, and my husband and son where thrilled to find that there’s a TV in both rooms.  You can check out all of the suites on the Great Wolf Lodge website here.

So far, we’ve enjoyed the outdoor pool, the indoor water park, the Loose Moose Cottage buffet, and MagiQuest (Tim even got a wand!).  MagiQuest is a one-of-a-kind, live-action adventure game. Armed with high-tech wands, your family must solve magical challenges throughout the resort to gain powers (and points) and move to higher levels of the game. I love how the kids participating in MagiQuest confer with each other in hallways about Quests.  What a great way to help kids get to know each other.
Oh, and this morning at breakfast we heard at least 4 birthday songs.. so apparently a lot of kids enjoy coming here for their birthday!  Fun!

Howlin Tornado waterpark ride

Howlin Tornado waterpark ride

Sebastian, my 11 year old, even talked me into going on the Howlin’ Tornado ride during which I thought I was going to wet myself and he looked terrified BUT at the end we were both laughing histarically and he did it again.. with his Dad.  The Howlin’ Tornado is a thrilling adventure ride that is a 6-story funnel. Although, I wasn’t aware of that before I went on the ride.  I quickly learned how this ride earned its name. Your raft repeatedly swishes and swirls 30 feet up the sides of the funnel, before making a safe splash landing.  Crazy!

I love the Riven Canyon Run ride, a  soothing ride compared to the Howlin’ Tornado.  I could go down the River Canyon Run again and again.

Today we’re going to check out the Mountain Edge Raceway™, Totem Towers™, and Howl in One™ Mini-Golf.
