We were invited to stay at Great Wolf Lodge in Southern California a couple of weeks ago and we knew about the indoor water, but we didn't realize how much more it had to offer! The first night we got the kids in their pajamas for Story Time. This is a magical moment for all kids as they watch the characters talk and the screen show scenes. Singing songs and then telling stories this was a crowd favorite. Make sure you check the schedule so that you don't miss out.
They also have yoga tails in the morning and wolf walks were the kids will learn about forest animals. Craft time was a hit for kids along with the dance parties!
The arcade is open 24 hours!!! Crazy huh? It's like Vegas for kids. As a family we enjoyed playing the games together. We each took a turn choosing the game we were going to play. Air Hockey was the best for all of us and we would join forces in the tossing games. You have to get a Paw Point card that is available at the front of the arcade. Your Paw Points don't expire so if you don't use them all in your visit you can return and use them on your next visit. Some games reward you for tickets. There is a ticket machine that you can put your tickets into and then place the value of them in your Paw Point card for later. The tickets are then exchanged for prices. Really fun for the whole family!
The Ten Paw Alley is another great activity for the family. The balls are kids size with just 5 pounds each. There is no gutters so your kids will love hitting the pins! Toddlers will even love it. For this you will also need the Paw Points to play.
We had a great time at the nine hole Howl at the Moon Glow in the Dark Golf at Great Wolf Lodge. It does get busy, but the team does a good job at spacing everyone out. Make sure you tell your kids to be courteous and wait for a family to be done with the hole before starting. You can use your Paw Points to play here.
Love shopping or forgot something at home? The Buckhorn Exchange is a great place to shop. From shirts, pajamas, to souvenirs your family will find something to take home with them to remember their time at Great Wolf Southern California. Did you see the Star Wars and Minecraft themed shirts? Cool huh?
When you walk into Scoops Spa at Great Wolf Lodge you automatically in love with everything they have! From the ice cream fizzy balls and themed chairs you and your child will love stepping into a world of the just the two you. I recommend that you do the Mommy and Me package and do this towards the end of your stay since you know nail polish tends to come off from the water. The treatment is about an hour long so make sure you have time for it.
