Great Wolf Lodge

Destinations / North America

Great Wolf Lodge’s beloved Snowland tradition comes back for another year of seasonal family fun, but with all the precautions a 2020 family trip entails.


Get the extended family and friends you’ve missed together for a group celebration — all while taking advantage of Great Wolf Lodge’s new Own the Park! offer. The exclusive buyout allows groups to get together with their chosen pod of loved ones — an unexpected 2020 travel trend, but honestly, kind of a nice way to relax and catch up.


Enjoy exclusive use of the resort’s massive indoor water park after regular operating hours, along with plenty of private access, including full range of the park’s countless waterslides, lazy river runs, line-free body surfing in the wave pool and other water sports.

The Own the Park package is available at several Great Wolf Lodge locations, including Poconos Mountains, Pennsylvania; Grapevine, Texas; Williamsburg, Virginia; Atlanta/La Grange, Georgia; Colorado Springs, Colorado; and Scottsdale/Talking Stick, Arizona. It begins at $10,000 and includes overnight accommodations for up to 10 Family Suites, each sleeping five guests and boasting stocked, in-suite fridges. The package also includes a welcome gift in each suite; exclusive water park access for 2.5 hours after hours (safely surveilled by Great Wolf’s lifeguards); and private breakfast the next morning.


Guests will also enjoy access to a refreshment station at the park, and a variety of complimentary amenities and services, including seasonal programs, crafts, yoga, story time and daily water park access.

For those seeking the full seasonal experience without booking the entire resort, Great Wolf Lodge’s annual Snowland welcomes guests Nov. 27, and runs through Jan. 3, 2021.


For guests skipping the private, intimate experience of the buyout, don’t worry, Great Wolf Lodge’s Paw Pledge program is dedicated to enhancing health and safety protocols for all guests.


Families can still safely enjoy all the fun of Snowland with some tweaks, including daily snow showers in the Grand Lobby; seasonal arts and crafts (this year, to go); social-distanced Santa visits; Menorah Candle Lighting During Hanukkah; “Twas the Night Before Snowland” Yoga Tails; and Frosty Fest Family Dance Party.
