Chris and I took an adventure with the kids to Great Wolf Lodge in LaGrange, GA right outside of Atlanta. Here is what we learned. But before we get too excited here are 13 Things You May Not Know About Great Wolf Lodge.

Great Wolf Lodge is the largest indoor water park resort in the United States and is a perfect getaway for those cold winter months with many locations to choose from. The water park includes attractions like different size slides. Some smaller slides for the younger kids while older kids and adults can enjoy giant tube slides. There are also attractions such as water basketball, a wave rider, and a wave pool. There’s a lazy river and hot tubs for mom and dad, as well.

For the littlest guests and young kids Cub Paw Pool has a zero entry pool that is baby and toddler friendly and fenced in. There’s also Fort Mackenzie which is a splash around play center to get the kids started. When you get to the water park, life guards will measure kids and provide them with a wrist band corresponding to which rides they can go on. Your entire family will love your stay! Great Wolf Lodge resorts are so much fun and make for a good time. Perfect for kids of all ages!
