Great-Wolf-Lodge-lobbyDuring our visit to Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls, Ontario, we had a chance to check out the overall facilities and activities that the resort had to offer. If you have yet to check out Great Wolf Lodge, I highly recommend it! This huge indoor water park resort is built exclusively for families and there are currently 11 resorts spread out across the USA and Canada, making it an excellent choice for a quick and enjoyable weekend away.

As a family who has visited the lodge a couple of times, we checked out yet another one of their room categories, tested out their new MagiQuest interactive adventure and visited the Scooops Kids Spa for the very first time.

Check In:


Upon check-in you will notice that there are no keys or key cards as the resort uses wristbands instead! This is such a fantastic idea (especially when you are coming in and out of the waterpark) because not only are the wristbands water-resistant, they also stay put so you never have to worry about losing a key!


There are several room categories available that accommodate anywhere from 2-8 people. If you have a large family you’ll know how amazing that is in itself as its hard to find rooms that fit a larger group.

Activities & Dining:

The highlight of Great Wolf Lodge is (of course) the waterpark. Featuring countless slides, rides and even an interactive 4-storey tree house, floor geysers and mini slides for the littles, you are bound to spend most of your time here. For those looking for a variety of other activities, the lodge has those too. Check out our full review of the new MagiQuest program suitable for children as well as adults. There is also the Cub Club, Northern Lights Arcade, Scooops Spa (featuring seats in the shape of a giant banana split), Iron Horse Fitness Room and more.

Dining options are varied and include anything from takeout pizza to a sit down buffet.
