Indoor water parks are big fun during the cold winter months and Great Wolf Lodge in Concord, NC was the perfect place for a winter retreat, but is the Great Wolf Lodge pass worth it?
We break down…
- What each pass includes
- How it works
- Is it worth it
Comparing Great Wolf Lodge Passes
The Pup Pass is the cheapest pass and doesn’t include any real activities because it only has toddlers in mind. Kids under 3 are unlikely to participate in many of the other activities, so you would purchase the Pup Pass to save money on things you would want to purchase for your little ones while you’re at Great Wolf Lodge.
The Paw Pass is the next tier up and does not include Howl in One Mini Golf, Laster Tag, or Oliver’s Mining experience. Kai really enjoyed mining because he got to play in the water and dirt. You would purchase the Paw Pass if your kids are mostly interested in gaming, treasure hunting, and adventures because the main attractions with this discount pass are the MagiQuest games.
You’re reading this blog because you’re wondering, Is The Great Wolf Lodge Pass worth it?
The Wolf Pass is the most expensive tier and I know these passes do provide a discount and great value, but ONLY if you do EVERYTHING on the list, otherwise it’s not worth it.
Imagine purchasing the Wolf Pass for everyone in your group but not everyone participating in every activity. That’s a HUGE waste of money that can be prevented. We are a family of 4 and we were able to have a great time with just 1 Wolf Pass. This worked out great for us because there was something for everyone on the list. Whoever wants to enjoy it, can!
The Rooms and Late Checkout
Our family of 4 was able to fit comfortably in the Standard Queen room with Sofa Sleeper. Sofabeds are not known for their comfort and the one in the room was to be expected. The room was clean, spacious, and well stocked with towels, bedsheets for the pull out, coffee maker, coffee, mini fridge, and T.V.
We paid an extra $50 for late checkout which was well worth it! We didn’t want to wake up and have to rush out of the room by 11am, so we added late checkout in order to sleep in and get one more day in the water park. Late checkout is at 2pm.
The room did not feel grimy and I didn’t see any random stains.
What can you do at Great Wolf Lodge, Concord, NC?
Within a few days at Great Wolf Lodge Concord, you’ll find that the water area really takes a lot out of the entire family. You’ll be looking for other things to do that don’t involve wetness. Don’t worry, there are lots of things for the kids to do and they will also enjoy hanging out around the lobby and gift shop.
We had the most fun playing laser tag and doing a MagiQuest Mission. MagiQuest has several ways to play that keep kids entertained across multiple visits.
