Ways to save money at Great Wolf Lodge

See also

Great Wolf Lodge is a great place to take your family on a trip, but it can be a bit expensive to go there. If you want to take this trip, there are still ways that it can be done on a budget. Use these great tips to save money on your trip.

Here are great ways to save:

  • Check out Groupon. They offer great deals on two night stays at Great Wolf Lodge all the time.
  • Use coupon codes when you book online. They always offer a military discount and also offer other savings throughout the year to make your trip affordable.
  • Take your own drinks. It can get really expensive to buy soda and water all day long. They charge $2.50 for the bottles of water in the room. Each room has a refrigerator and you can take your own drinks with you. Head back to your room anytime you want a drink. You can't take your own into the water park, but you can drink them around the park while doing MagiQuest or going to the arcade.
  • You can take your own breakfast as well. Breakfast out to eat is expensive. Consider taking Pop Tarts or mini muffins to have in your room so you can enjoy a more expensive dinner out. You will also want to pack a few of your own snacks.
  • Share meals at the water park. We each ordered our own meal at the water park and it was way too much food. A chicken strip meal comes with five strips and fries. One of these meals would easily feed two children.
  • If you plan to drink alcohol, take your own with you in your bag. You can mix it up in the room. Cocktails are really expensive here.
  • Don't plan to buy swimsuits, goggles, etc at the park. Buy these ahead of time and bring with you or even hit up a nearby Wal-Mart. They are expensive at the park and most of them don't even have a Great Wolf logo on them.

If you use these tips, you can make a trip to Great Wolf affordable for your family. Your kids will love the experience! Let me know your tips in the comments below.
