This weekend, we were treated to a day of Howl-o-ween at Great Wolf Lodge Georgia. Of course, we did the water park, but we spent the morning and part of the afternoon checking out all of the Howl-o-ween decoration, trick or treating and Great Wolf Lodge’s Adventure Park.
When you have access to a a great sign picture, you take the couple minutes to talk over and get everybody together. A bonus is that there was a shady side, so we weren’t all squinty.
For the month of October, the folks at Great Wolf Lodge Georgia have put up special decorations and are holding unique activities to get everyone in on all the spooky fun. A giant pumpkin wolf sculpture and a massive ceiling adornment in the shape of a spider are just a couple of the amazing things in store for you just in time for Howl-o-ween.
Just look how festive it is!
Kids and parents alike can enjoy Halloween-themed activities at Great Wolf Lodge’s Howl-o-ween such as:
Trick-or-Treat Trail – Multiple trail stops will be set up throughout the Lodge where little goblins and ghouls can collect candy and participate in an interactive activity such as the Witch Hat Ring Toss, Mummy Bowling, Pin the Wolf Ears on Mr. Bones, and more. Each stop the kids got candy, and there was also an option for a teal pumpkin non-candy treat.
Howl-O-Ween House – A life-sized, not-so-haunted house will come alive in the Grand Lobby, which will also serve as the first stop on the Trick-or-Treat Trail. Additionally, the Howl-O-Ween House will serve as a Teal Pumpkin stop for guests with food allergies and a non-food treat will be distributed for guest enjoyment.
Costume Parade – Guests will put their boo-tiful costumes on display and join the Great Wolf Kids for a Costume Parade around the Grand Lobby. I missed grabbing a picture, but there was a battle of Jurassic proportions when two dinosaurs started having a little boxing match of their own. The kids thought it was a hoot.
Monster Bash Dance Party – Witches, mummies and more can show off their scariest dance moves set to favorite Halloween tunes that are sure to get everybody’s bones moving and grooving.
Spooktacular Story Time – A Great Wolf Lodge tradition takes on a Howl-O-Ween twist as young guests are treated to a festive Halloween story. The interactive tales will transport guests into a boo-bit scary, but mostly silly land every night in the Grand Lobby. Story time is always a great way to wind down and end the day on a fun note.
In addition to packing plastic pumpkin pails and plenty of ghostly garments for costume parades, families can’t forget to bring their bathing suits for Great Wolf’s massive 84-degree indoor waterpark, featuring areas specifically designed for toddlers, tweens, teens, and even adults. And when it’s time to dry off, families can enjoy dry play activities!
Great Wolf Lodge Georgia Adventure Park
Ten Paw Alley – Enjoy a game of miniature golf complete with bumpers or not, your choice and a ton of different game options.
Howler’s Peak Ropes Course – B wasn’t quite tall enough to enjoy the ropes course, but the rest of the Serious clan enjoyed both stories of ropes fun!
MagiQuest – Everybody enjoyed getting their wands interactive live-action role playing game on with Magiquest®. They’ve played at other locations, but it seems like each one is different and new. They can’t wait to go back and do the entire game.
Oliver’s Mining Co. – Have fun panning for different gemstones in the little mini mine.
Howl in One Mini Golf – It’s a miniature mini-golf experience on the Howl in One 9 hole golf course located right under the ropes course. For the record, Mr. Serious and I both tied for first place.
Northern Lights Arcade – Hit up the arcade from some fun games, squeeze machines, ski-ball and more. The young kid favorite was the tiny merry-go-round and the little fire truck.
Rustic Ridge Climbing Wall – Thankfully, the minimum for the climbing wall was 20lbs (with no age or height requirements), so B was able to experience this. It’s the highest she’s ever gone on a rock wall and really seemed to enjoy it.
Creation Station – We missed creating at the creation station where you can create your own pet or stuffed creature as a souvenir of your vacation.
Camp H.O.W.L. – Was a fun place where we made buttons and the kids played in both indoor and outdoor playscapes. There is family time here and also time for kids to be checked in so parents can enjoy some adult time, too.
We all had a great time at Howl-o-ween at Great Wolf Lodge. We can’t wait to come back and stay over to get our entire fill of everything in!
