Great Wolf Lodge introduces nationwide Waterpark Day Pass Program

Great Wolf Lodge is offering families a new way to experience the resorts’ water parks with their new Waterpark Day Pass Program.

Guests can now enjoy a single day at the waterpark starting at $50 per person, available at all U.S. resorts this summer. Up until now, access to the waterpark was only available for overnight guests.

“We believe time together as a family is a precious commodity, and the ability to slip away for day, or even a few hours, to have fun at our waterparks is something we feel families will be excited about,” said Murray Hennessy, chief executive officer for Great Wolf Resorts. “While an overnight stay provides families with the most immersive and comprehensive Great Wolf Lodge experience, we recognize that many families are pressed for time and can’t get away for a night, so we wanted to provide another option.”

To celebrate the nationwide launch of this new program, Great Wolf Lodge will donate $5 to Make-A-Wish for every day pass sold now through the end of June. Guests can support this cause by purchasing a waterpark day pass by June 30 to use in June, July or August.

“As a new corporate partner, we are grateful to Great Wolf Lodge for their generosity, which will help more children battling critical illnesses replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope,” said Richard K. Davis, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America. “This month, by purchasing day passes, guests can join the Make-A-Wish community in improving the lives of wish families – many of which are likely guests’ friends, neighbors, and relatives.”

Guests can purchase waterpark day passes at all of the U.S. Great Wolf Lodge resorts, except for Great Wolf Lodge Minnesota in Bloomington. That resort is expected to start offering the pass in July.

The number of waterpark day passes will be monitored each day to make sure that the number of guests in the waterpark is manageable. The quantity available on any given day is based on the projected number of rooms occupied at the resort on that day.

“Families love knowing that when they come to the waterpark at Great Wolf Lodge, they won’t need to wait in long lines for their favorite slides, struggle to find a deck chair, or swim shoulder-to-shoulder in our pools,” said Hennessy. “By managing capacity levels at our waterparks, we will continue to offer a stress-free waterpark experience, just as we have from the onset of Great Wolf Lodge.”

Waterpark day passes much be purchased at least a day in advance of a visit, and are only available online. To check the availability of passes for any particular day, visit
