What activities can you do at Great Wolf Lodge - Southern California?
There are so many things to do at Great Wolf Lodge. Let's start with the water park area.
The toddler area is great! It is a zero-depth entry pool that is up to two feet deep by the slides in the back. There are fountains, sprays, and slides for the kids to play in. This area is gated so kids can't just run out. To get into the gate you have to pull up on the black lever. Little ones can't reach this lever which I am thankful for. There are chairs and tables inside this area and there are also cabanas for rent.
The waves are fun for the whole family! They supply the life jackets and the deepest end is only 5 feet. Little ones have fun splashing and playing.
Fort Mackensie is one of the best places to stake out your seat for the day if you have both big and small kids. It's close to the entrance, the bathroom is right next to it, towels nearby, life jackets and food! Perfect for everyone. Make sure you go over the rules with your kids with no running, pushing, or going elsewhere without telling you. If you are sitting at the front of this it is a perfect view for mom or dad to take a break and still be able to watch the kids go around. The lifeguards are set at the top of each slide and at the bottom.
Alberta Falls is one of many slides at Great Wolf Lodge that you can ride double. My boys loved it!
This is the River Canyon Run. Families sit together in a raft and go through twists and turns. This is a great way to get the family together and if it is your kids first time on an enclosed water slide to let them see how fun it is.
Other activities are:
- Slap Tail Pond
- Crooked Creek - Lazy River
- Wolf Rider Wipeout
- Big Foot Pass
- and they also have water basketball
All of this is included in your stay! Towels are included which makes it nice for not carrying anything with you. Your room key which is a bracelet is your access to everything and you can even use it to pay for food, clothes, or activities.
What other activities are there?
This is an interactive game for kids and adults to play throughout their stay. You get to battle dragons, befriend pixies and as you wave your magic wand the adventures begin. I am so glad they created the app! Download it before you go!
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.
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.
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.
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.
