Celebrate Howl-O-Ween at Great Wolf Lodge
It’s Fall in Georgia, but it certainly does not feel like it! With temperatures in the low 90s, there’s no place I’d rather be than inside with air condition. Thankfully those of us living in the Southeast have a brand new Great Wolf Lodge in LaGrange, Georgia. Since opening day in late May, Great Wolf Lodge has been welcoming guests to its resort as a great escape from the heat! But don’t let that fool you. Great Wolf Lodge is not just your family-friendly destination during those hot months, it is also the perfect place to create memories with loved ones any time of the year including Halloween! Discover our Top 6 Reasons to Celebrate Howl-O-Ween at Great Wolf Lodge Indoor Waterpark Resorts!
Howl-O-Ween at Great Wolf Lodge is a month-long celebration lasting through October 31. Designed for ghosts and ghouls of all ages, this Halloween themed party is dedicated to all things spooky and pumpkin! From the pumpkin carved wolf to the giant balloon spider hanging from the ceiling in the Grand Lobby, you feel as if you have stepped into the pages of a Halloween book.
And the Grand Lobby is not the only place where you’ll see Halloween decorations. Spooktacular decor awaits you in all corners of the resort. From the Adventure Park to the Water Park, you’ll find pumpkins, scarecrows and more. It is seriously like your favorite Halloween movie or book coming to life in the halls of Great Wolf Lodge. I loved seeing the attention to detail that they took in creating these scenes for guests to enjoy. Even the Timbers Tacos food truck featured Boney(that’s what we called him) in the driver seat.
Tucked away in the Grand Lobby is a life-sized, not-so-haunted house that you just have to see for yourself! Peek inside to catch a glimpse of the bewitching decor that comes to life each night as the first stop on the Trick-Or-Treat Trail. I was so captivated by this house that I could have sworn I heard it calling me to come and sit for a spell!
And as if I needed another reason to love Great Wolf Lodge’s Howl-O-Ween even more, they really stepped it up a notch by thinking about all children that enter through their doors. This house does not just serve as a boo-tastic focal point in the Grand Lobby, but also it serves as a Teal Pumpkin stop for guests with food allergies. At this first stop on the Trick-or-Treat Trail, trick-or-treaters will receive a bag to hold all their goodies in, a non-food treat, and the scavenger hunt clue’s to use in search of their next stop.
Every Halloween celebration should come with opportunities to trick-or-treat and Great Wolf Lodge has not left that out! Once you visit the Howl-O-Ween House, head out on the Trick-or-Treat Trail in search of goodies that are sure to delight. Multiple trail stops are set up throughout the resort where little ghosts and ghouls can collect candy and participate in interactive activities such as the Witch Hat Ring Toss. Even our little ones could have a howling good time at Great Wolf Lodge’s Howl-O-Ween!
SPOOKY CHARACTER WALK & MONSTER BASH DANCE
At Great Wolf Lodge’s Howl-O-Ween celebration, everyone can wear their Halloween costumes including moms and dads. Even the Great Wolf Lodge team members get to have a little fun in their costumes! We loved seeing everyone show off their boo-tiful costumes during the Spooky Character Walk around the Grand Lobby. Our little ones were in complete awe of the inflatable dinosaur costume someone was wearing so much so that they jut had to pet him!
Guests can even enjoy wearing their costumes throughout their stay for the various Howl-O-Ween activities including the Monster Bash Dance Party held nightly in the Grand Lobby. Witches, mummies and more can show off their scariest dance moves set to favorite Halloween tunes that are sure to get everybody’s bones moving and grooving.
SPOOKTACULAR STORY TIME
One of our favorite things about Great Wolf Lodge is the attention they focus on families. Each night they encourage guests to gather in the Grand Lobby to enjoy story time. During the Howl-O-Ween celebration, story time takes on a Halloween twist! Come dressed in your pajamas or costumes and enjoy an interactive tale that will transport the little witches and wizards on a silly and boo-bit scary Halloween tale!
