Five Things We are Excited about Great Wolf Lodge SoCal + 2-Night Stay Giveaway

Howlin' Tornado Great Wolf Lodge Orange County

The highly anticipated time has come for the Great Wolf Lodge SoCal to open their doors to the public. The family-friendly resort will be an epic Orange County Staycation getaway, and is centrally located in the heart of Orange County being just a short drive away from Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm. With the opening just weeks away, we can barely contain our excitement, and these are the five things that we are the most excited about Great Wolf Lodge SoCal opening.

The Water Park
The indoor water park will feature 105,000 square feet of water play fun. Kids will scream with delight while sliding down one of the three-story body slides, go on a rafting adventure on the 476-foot long family raft ride or say “cowabunga” while spiraling down the Coyote Canyon pipe-style flume ride.

The Dining
Your family will not have to leave Great Wolf Lodge SoCal during your family getaway. Everything your family will need is at the resort including seven different dining destinations. Kids satisfy all their sweet desires by having an ice cream at Bear Paw Sweets and Eats or a delicious donut at Dunkin’ Donuts. There is something for everyone to enjoy eating at the different themed onsite restaurants.

There is endless fun for kids at Great Wolf Lodge Socal. There will be an XD movie theater, arcade, bowling alley, miniature golf and more. Our favorite activity is the interactive MagiQuest experience that will turn your vacation into an adventure.

Your kids will be entertained throughout your stay with story time in the lobby and character meet and greets.

Scooops Kid Spa

Finally, a resort that has created a spa that is both adult and child-friendly. We can’t wait to get a pedicure along with our little princesses in the kid-friendly spa. Every spa treatment wouldn’t be complete without a delicious ice cream treat at the end of the treatment.

Great Wolf Lodge is expected to open in February of 2016. In celebration of the upcoming opening, they are offering a 25% discount for guests who book by December 31, 2015, and stay from February 19th through September 30th. Use promo code GRAND to take advantage of this special offer.
