There’s a brand new way to experience the thrilling fun and adventure at Great Wolf Lodge. Thanks to the introduction of a Great Wolf Lodge day pass, guests can enjoy the waterpark without staying the night!

For the first time ever guests can enjoy the waterpark at all Great Wolf Lodge locations across the U.S. for a single day. Visitors can spend the day splashing and cruising through the waterslides with a special day pass for $50 per person. To celebrate the launch of the new day pass, Great Wolf Lodge will be donating five dollars to Make-A-Wish for every pass sold from now through Jun. 30. for use in June, July or August. Toddlers age two or under do not require a pass when accompanied by a paying adult.

“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,” Murray Hennessy, chief executive officer for Great Wolf Resorts said in a press release. “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.”

For those worried that day pass might cause crowds and wait times for the pools and slides, Great Wolf Lodge promises to maintain capacity restraints. “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,” added 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.”

Passes must be purchased at least one day in advance, online only. You can check the availability of day passes for a specific day here. The passes are valid for a full day of play from 10 a.m. until closing.
