Great Wolf Will Offer Indoor Waterparks

This March, families will be able to getaway to a warm water-based vacation at Great Wolf Lodge’s central attraction, Bear Track Landing. As part of the resort’s 66,000 square-foot indoor entertainment area, the waterpark will defy seasonal weather constraints and provide year-round adventure.

Curtis Brown, general manager, explained, “As a complete destination resort with indoor amenities, including one of the world’s largest indoor waterparks, Great Wolf Lodge creates bathing suit tourism opportunities for guests visiting the greater Williamsburg region year-round.”

Great Wolf Lodge’s four-story, indoor waterpark will offer an exciting vacation throughout the year. The state-of-the-art indoor facility continues the resort’s theme of northwoods adventure with ample greenery, rock outcroppings and towering totem poles.

The waterpark will include eight waterslides, including: two tube slides that twist outside the building before dropping into a plunge pool below; two three-story body slides; the innovative new Dark Mammoth family tube ride and three kiddie slides for even the youngest of thrill-seekers.

The park will also feature six pools suitable for guests of all ages, including: a gigantic indoor wave pool; a four-foot deep recreation pool; adult and family whirlpools; a leisure river; and zero-depth entry pools. A gigantic indoor wave pool and two whirlpools will allure guest of all ages. During the warmer months, guests will be able to enjoy the outdoor activity pool.


In terms of “wow-factor,” nothing tops the indoor waterpark’s interactive treehouse waterfort. The four-story water activity and fun center will feature 12 levels of water-based adventure interconnected with suspension bridges, cargo nets, web crawls and over 60 guest-activated water effects. Every few minutes, a nearly 1,000-gallon bucket at the top of the 40-foot tall structure will fill with water, tips, and douses the entire fort and everyone gathered below.

More than 60 lifeguards, all nationally certified by Ellis & Associates—a world-leading aquatic safety training company—will oversee the resort’s waterpark safety.
