Celebrate the Holidays at the Great Wolf Lodge New England #GWLNewEngland

Disclaimer: I visited the Great Wolf Lodge New England for a Holiday Preview Event, and this post is written purely because I want to share the great events and deals they have to offer. It was not mandatory to post anything.


The place to spend the holidays this fall and winter is at the Great Wolf Lodge. We live closest to the New England Lodge, but there are also twelve other Great Wolf Lodge locations nationwide. Why is this the place to be? I will share with you what makes this place so different and great, and what they are offering over the holidays this year.

The Great Wolf Lodge

This is a place the entire family will love. You will find multiple indoor water parks, restaurants, game rooms, gift shops, bowling lanes, mini golf, story time hours, and much more! My kids loved the Howlers Peak Ropes Course™ and MagiQuest® at the Great Wolf Lodge New England. We will be checking out the Scooops® Kid Spa and Lazer Frenzy on our next trip there, which happens to already be booked! The rooms there are amazing, and we have a Kids’ Cabin Suite for our next visit, which includes a kids’ log cabin room with a daybed, bunk beds, and their own TV. As you can see, with the many activities to do with the family, you can stay multiple nights and still not get to do it all. It’s definitely a family Staycation place to build family memories to last for a lifetime. This holiday season will give the family even more to celebrate if you book at Great Wolf Lodge today!

Thanksgiving at the Great Wolf Lodge

You can spend all day cooking at home and planning a meal the family will love, or you can book a trip to the Great Wolf Lodge with your family where you can spend more time visiting with family and less time cooking. The meal you will get for Thanksgiving at Great Wolf Lodge is beyond amazing! So many tasty Thanksgiving dishes, both traditional and non-traditional, so something for everyone in the family to love. It will be a perfect getaway for the holiday, and one your family will cherish and remember! Spend more time together instead of spending more time in the kitchen!



Christmas Season at the Great Wolf Lodge ~ Snowland

Experience Snowland November 29th, 2014 – January 4th, 2015 at Great Wolf Lodge! The lodge turns into an enchanted winter wonderland for the entire family to enjoy! Get involved in fun snow and holiday activities, as well as play in the water parks. This will be a winter to remember. Here in New England we definitely need an escape from the cold weather and real snow days. So pack your bags and come make some delicious Christmas cookies at the lodge and try the rich delicious hot chocolate! Here are some great activities to do during Snowland:

  • Life-size Gingerbread House
    Dine inside the life-size Gingerbread House at the Great Wolf Lodge! The delicious aromas that drift from this giant Gingerbread House may start a craving for sweets, so they have made room inside for you and your family to dine!
  • Santa Visits Great Wolf Lodge
    Santa Claus is coming to Great Wolf Lodge! He will make his grand entry during the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Saturday, November 29th. Additional visits from Santa will vary by lodge. Kids can also write letters to Santa at Santa’s Letter Depot. He will respond after his world tour on December 25th.
  • North Pole University
    Children can become a Snowland expert by enrolling in North Pole University. Complete four fun activities on your task list to obtain your “Snowploma” and a limited edition trading card!

So many great activities to beat the frigid temps outside, but still enjoy a snowy holiday!




So what are you waiting for? Make your reservation today and spend the holidays at Great Wolf Lodge! From fun Howl-O-Ween events to the best Thanksgiving dinner one can eat to seeing it actually snow inside in the lodge. These are things you won’t want to miss this fall and winter season! Maybe we’ll see you there!

  1. We have one of these within 20 miles of our home and I have never been there. I had no idea they did holiday events. Now that I see your post it makes me want to go. Thanks!

  2. I didn’t realize that they were so much more than a water park. All of those activities would be a hit with my son. We need to visit.

  3. It looks like everything you need is right there. No reason to leave the lodge to find things to do!

  4. wow, that place looks so like so much fun. We will have to look at this place if we are ever in the area.

  5. I absolutely love this place! We had a blast when we visited. There is really something for everyone!

  9. Wow! That looks amazing! I love all the fun things the resort has. It’s amazing.

  10. SO fun! I love GWL. We are planning to take the kids there sometime this fall!

  11. We went to the one in Grapevine, Texas a few years back around Christmas and it was so much fun. They had a fabulous display and we had a blast.

  12. I’d love to spend the weekend at Great Wolf Lodge. It looks like a blast. My son would love it.

  13. It would be such a blast to hang out here with my husband and daughter for a weekend. It looks like such fun.

    I’ve never been to Great Wolf Lodge but I have heard great things about it, It sounds like a fun way to spend a family vacation.

  21. That looks like so much fun! My daughter has a really cool wand from a MagiQuest that closed down. Such a bummer. The closest Great Wolf Lodge for us is in the Wisconsin Dells. The Dells are a place I have always wanted to visit. Sounds like staying at the Great Wolf Lodge there would be the perfect place to stay!
