It may not seem like it but The Great Wolf Lodge is a wonderful place for a honeymoon; and the Whirlpool Suite is a must!
When we arrived at Great Wolf Lodge in Concord, NC the people at the front desk were pleasant and helpful. They gave us our keys, which happened to be wrist bands, and we were ready to go. The great thing about the wrist band is that you just scan it to get in your room and it doubles as your pass to get in the water park. I was really concerned about having to keep up with the room key during our trips to the water park, so it was great to find I had one less thing to worry about.
The Great Wolf is just the perfect mix of fun and relaxation. When you’re looking for fun you can visit the water park which has a lot of slides and little challenges you can do. They have one game where you have to get across Lilly pads and my husband couldn’t get enough of it. You should have seen him; It was quite a site. They also have one of the best arcades I’ve ever seen; you could spend hours in it. They are also very generous with the prizes, if you’re at least close to how much you need they will just give it to you which we thought was very nice.
They also have a Magi Quest in the building where you get to fight dragons and earn magic spells. They have a package that’s about $30 and you get your wand and the ability to play the entire time you’re there. The wand saves your progress as well, then when you return you can start playing where you left off on your last visit.
Now I probably haven’t told you much you didn’t already assume about Great Wolf Lodge. After all it’s an indoor water park, so it’s a given that you and your new spouse would have a blast, but can you believe it’s also a place for romance?
Think whirlpool and spa; need I say more? The spa offers massages as well as manicures, pedicures, and facial treatments. As far as the whirlpool, we won’t stay at a resort without one again, that’s for sure! When we would got tired of being at the water park we could come back to our room and melt into the hot tub. It’s very spacious; we both had enough room to lay in it together. If you choose to go for your honeymoon you won’t regret getting that room.
Great Wolf made us feel very welcome, and special. They left us a plate of fruit and a pastry on our bed which was absolutely delicious! They also left a note by the plate congratulating us and wishing us the best. If you have any questions at all John Poole is very nice and he helps you out as fast as he can. Every time I emailed him he responded right away.
You also don’t have to stay in The Great Wolf Lodge the whole time. My husband and I learned that there are many things you can enjoy outside the lodge as well while you are staying there. They have a huge mall and in our opinion the best Ryan’s we have ever been to! My husband and I are going back for our anniversary and I’m sure you will want to as well if you go for your honeymoon.
