Have you heard the news? Great Wolf Lodge (GWL) is coming to Chicagoland this year. I don’t know who’s more excited — me or the kids! We’ve visited the GWL location in Wisconsin Dells and absolutely loved our experience. And guess what? They are now officially taking reservations for their anticipated opening date of July 1. To make it even sweeter, if you book now (before March 9), guests can save up to 30%!! Woohoo!

“We’re thrilled to be one step closer to opening our doors at Great Wolf Lodge Illinois and welcoming families from the greater Chicagoland area and beyond,” says Emilio Fabico, the resort’s general manager.  “From the expansive indoor water park to our signature kids experience and family-friendly attractions found throughout the resort, Great Wolf Lodge offers an incredible resort experience where families can create memories together to last a lifetime.”

What you can expect:

  • 414 updated guest suites
  • Double the size of the existing waterpark (80,000 sq. ft) which is heated to a comfortable 84 degrees and includes Fort Mackenzie – a multi-level interactive water fort treehouse with a tipping water bucket, lazy river, wave pool, family raft ride, high thrill water slides, and toddler-friendly water features.
  • Great Wolf Adventure Park, a full-service family entertainment center featuring the Howlers Peak Ropes Course, Ten Paw Alley family bowling, Howl in One mini golf, Northern Lights Arcade, and Rustic Ridge, a multi-story rock wall.
