Our second stop on our family vacation was Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, TX, just outside of Dallas. This was our third (or maybe fourth) visit to GWL, and we had an enjoyable time. It’s an indoor/outdoor waterpark hotel with lots of fun activities including an arcade, kiddie spa, interactive quest games with magic wands, storytime, Cub Club activities and crafts, multiple dining options, and more. The waterpark is by far the main attraction – with tall slides, a wave pool, awesome kiddie pool area, and much more, but the entire hotel is a treasure trove of fun.
Other than the wave pool which the two older girls enjoyed immensely, I’d say the highlight of our stay at GWL was the hula dancers and drummers who put on a nice show for us for Labor Day. The kids were invited to come up to the front for a fun hula dancing lesson followed by a parade around the lobby area, and they seemed to have really enjoyed it.
