Fun getaway
It’s a fun place to stay if you are from Illinois and not wanting to drive to Wisconsin Dells. The only bad thing was not a bid outdoor pool. It was super crowded outside on a very warm day. Another issues was the slide, after walking up all the stairs they closed the slide down with out saying anything. Clean place great rooms

Better communication needed
Great wolf lodge had system down so we arrived at 3pm to wait in a long line til 4pm at check in time but waited a EXTRA hour and a half after that to get a text saying our room was ready. Might I add this is our only day here and the water park close at 8pm… we finally got to our room at 6pm…we only had 2 hrs of water play…
