Great Wolf Lodge Now Offering Day Passes!

Until now, you can only have access to Great Wolf Lodge‘s indoor waterpark if you have an overnight reservation. Since they’ve been open in Garden Grove, there has been many inquiries for Day Pass options. Of course, the best value is an on overnight because you get two days of waterpark, but what if you’re pressed for time and would like to stop by for a day? For a limited time only (this summer), Guests can now purchase a waterpark day pass starting at $50 per person available at all U.S. resorts this summer!

“We believe time together as a family is a precious commodity, and the ability to slip away for day, or even a few hours, to have fun at our waterparks is something we feel families will be excited about,” shared Murray Hennessy, chief executive officer for Great Wolf Resorts. “While an overnight stay provides families with the most immersive and comprehensive Great Wolf Lodge experience, we recognize that many families are pressed for time and can’t get away for a night, so we wanted to provide another option.”


To celebrate the nationwide launch of the waterpark day pass program, Great Wolf Lodge will donate $5 to Make-A-Wish® for every day pass sold now through the end of June 2019. Guests can help support Make-A-Wish’s mission to grant life-changing wishes to children battling critical illnesses by purchasing a day pass by June 30 for use in June, July or August.

“As a new corporate partner, we are grateful to Great Wolf Lodge for their generosity, which will help more children battling critical illnesses replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope,” said Richard K. Davis, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America. “This month, by purchasing day passes guests can join the Make-A-Wish community in improving the lives of wish families – many of which are likely guests’ friends, neighbors and relatives.”

Limited Number of Passes Sold Daily

Currently, waterpark day passes are available at all of the company’s U.S. resorts (except Great Wolf Lodge Minnesota in Bloomington), which is expected to start offering waterpark day passes in July. The number of waterpark day passes will be monitored each day to ensure the number of visitors at the waterpark is actively managed. The quantity of water park day passes available on a given day is based on the projected number of rooms occupied at the resort on that day. This controlled approach allows Great Wolf Lodge to maintain a safe, comfortable and enjoyable waterpark experience for all guests.

“Families love knowing that when they come to the waterpark at Great Wolf Lodge, they won’t need to wait in long lines for their favorite slides, struggle to find a deck chair, or swim shoulder to shoulder in our pools,” added Hennessy.  “By managing capacity levels at our waterparks we will continue to offer a stress-free waterpark experience, just as we have from the onset of Great Wolf Lodge.”  

The waterpark day pass program provides families with a full-day of play.  Guests can access the waterpark starting at 10 am on the day their pass is valid and can stay at the resort until the waterpark closes that evening. Guests can also choose a more immersive Great Wolf Lodge experience with an overnight stay that offers unlimited access to the waterpark, a spacious family-friendly suite and a host of complimentary family activities throughout the resort.
