Great Wolf Lodge Grapevine Review


We spent the weekend with our worldwide traveling family https://www.facebook.com/DskiAdventures/ so all the cousins could be together at Great Wolf Lodge Grapevine! On our way from Sugar Land we definitely stopped by two Buccees to stretch our legs and refuel. So that broke the long road trip for us.

Since we lost our Jeep Commander to Hurricane Harvey, we took Andell’s 11 year old BMW 335i. It did well! To get the most out of your stay, you can start using the waterpark at 1 pm prior to check-in. So get the kids in their swimsuits already before entering. You will get white wristbands. The boys were amazed! They have been to MANY waterparks, but they still entered with awe and amazement. Your kids will have fun even if you won’t! But you will most likely have fun!

There is an outdoor and indoor area. Know that the outdoor closes about 5 or 5:30 depending on the day. The indoor one closes later. You will need to go to the lower level to get to the entrance of the water park areas. There at the ground level you will see the arcades, pizza restaurant, little girl’s spa and all the other things to entertain your little guests.

Since my boys love basketball, they obviously could not spend too much time in the water basketball section. The teens love that section too. So just keep an eye out. The teens were friendly when we went and entertained the boys. They even gladly shared the balls.

There is a lot of seating in that section and about two handicapped tables. Grandma and Grandpa hung around there while waiting for the rooms to be ready. I will tell you that if you don’t wear your swimsuit, it will be hot for you indoor. You might as well take a dip! Or have plenty of cool drinks with you.

It is a waterpark and there will be many steps to climb! What’s great is that you are not under the blazing sun and it is manageable!
You will definitely get your steps while being with the kids/having fun.

We booked the rooms with the bunk beds, and I would do that again. It just makes it more fun for the kids. You are able to have 7 in each room.

We did have to move out of our room, at GWL’s request because there was a maintenance issue affecting the room below us. But they absolutely more than made up for it! We enjoyed a great breakfast buffet for the 13 guests. If you have a large group and want to spend some time together, this is a great place to be.

Some more photos of the trip!

The kids had such a blast, they were really begging us to go return the following weekend! We will be back!
