Family Adventure Awaits at the Great Wolf Lodge

Resting near the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, the Great Wolf Lodge is an adventure for everyone in the family. Sure to please kids of all ages, the Great Wolf Lodge features something all ages can enjoy.

The main attraction for the Great Wolf Lodge is their indoor, temperature controlled 85,000-square-foot water park. With more than a dozen attractions, everyone in the family will find their favorite. For those seeking a thrill, the Wolf Tail will drop guests down a nearly vertical, 20 foot free fall, followed by a 360-degree loop. For family’s wanting to enjoy some quality time in inner tubes down water slides, the Diamond Back Drop, Alberta Falls and River Canyon Run will bring everyone together. And for those younger kids, there’s still plenty of attractions to enjoy, including the Talking Stick Treehouse, with several slides, and the Cub Paw Pool.

When the family is ready to take a break from the water park, Great Wolf Lodge has plenty of attractions waiting. Oliver’s Mining Company lets guests pan for treasure, while the Moonstone Mine has a mirror maze waiting to be challenged. Ten Paw Alley and Howl in One Mini Golf allows for bowling and golfing fun. The Rustic Ridge Climbing Wall and Howlers Peak Ropes Course offers climbing challenges those willing to brave them.

But a real highlight of the attractions is Great Wolf’s MagiQuest. This interactive attraction exclusive to Great Wolf lets adventures live out a truly magical adventure. It starts when guests choose their magic wand, then set out exploring the resort on any number of quests. Throughout the hotel are areas waiting for guests to interact with. From collecting gold to battling goblins and dragons, MagiQuest rewards those willing to discover all of its magic. 

With so much to do at Great Wolf, everyone will build up an appetite. Good thing there are lots of great options to eat. From burgers, to tacos, to steaks, there are lots of great choices, including Arizona’s only Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream.

And when everyone is ready to relax for the day, one of 350 guest rooms will be waiting. From family suites to suites with bunk beds separate from the parents, all the rooms provide the perfect place to rest after a long day of adventure. 

With all of the great options available for family vacations in Arizona, the Great Wolf Lodge is a true standout in the area. Whether it’s to escape the heat of the summer or the cold of the winter in the indoor water park, or to enjoy endless hours of attractions, the Great Wolf Lodge is the perfect family adventure.
