PHOTOS COURTESY OF GREAT WOLF LODGE Open year-round, the lodge trades winter blues for the gushing waters of the 80,000-square-foot indoor water park. Here thrill-seekers hold on tight while swirling through the six-story slide Howlin' Tornado, explorers splash through the Fort Mackenzie treehouse, and little pups howl with joy in the Whooping Hollow playground. Once you've worked up an appetite, head to Buckets Incredible Craveables for a poolside picnic. Dive into a burger or hot dog and, if you've saved room, the family-sized Tipping Bucket, a dessert that overflows with ice cream, brownies, candy and whipped cream. Afterward, gather the pack for a lively post- lunch lineup. Kids tap into their artistic sides with Paws-on-Projects, face painting and balloon twisting, while resident tree climbers get an adrenaline boost on the Howlers Peak Ropes Course. Team up with the whole family during live-action games like MagiQuest, Compass Quest, ShadowQuest and AtomicRUSH, an LED arcade game. With so much fun to pack in, you may want to extend your adventure. Overnight options at Great Wolf Lodge stretch imaginations with themed tent and cave sleeping areas. You don't hear "I'm bored" at Great Wolf Lodge. Instead, kids, screaming and high-fiving, race down the Totem Towers water slides. Parents look on as they splash about, thankful for a weekend away from video game consoles. 10175 Weddington Road | Concord, NC 28027 866.740.9653 PLAN YOUR VISIT CHARLOT TESGOTALOT.COM 19
