There's a place in the Lone Star State where action and adventure await not just children, but the entire family. Embark on a trip to Great Wolf Lodge - Grapevine, TX, featuring an 80,000-square-foot indoor water park, a state-of-the-art arcade, and more. And it's all just 25 minutes from Dallas, meaning Mom and Dad have a metropolis full of fun close at hand, too.
Stay for one night in a themed Wolf Den Suite or KidKamp Suite that sleeps up to six guests, Sundays through Thursdays ($229) or Fridays ($249), and get six wristbands for the water park and six tickets to the Howlywood XD Theater, a motion-simulated thrill ride and the newest addition to the resort. Or, stay for one night in a KidCabin Suite that sleeps up to seven guests, Sundays through Thursdays ($229) or Fridays ($249), and get seven lunches in the water park and seven wristbands.
Larger families might want a one-night stay for up to eight guests in a Premium Loft, Majestic Bear, Grand Bear, or Grand Royal Bear Suite, Sundays through Thursdays ($259) or Fridays ($279), which comes with eight wristbands. Up to four guests can stay arrive on Sundays through Wednesdays and stay up two nights in a Luxury King Suite, including a late 2 p.m. checkout, one large two-topping pizza, salad, breadsticks, and two-liter soda ($339). Need a longer trip? Combine an unlimited number of vouchers to extend your stay.
Start by hitting the indoor water park, set at a tropical 84 degrees. Rides like the Howlin' Tornado and Coyote Cannon allow you to tube through tunnels and vortexes before plunging into massive pools. Pack the whole family into a raft for the River Canyon Run, a winding beast of a slide, or take a four-story plunge at Alberta Falls. Smack dab in the center of the water park lies Fort Mackenzie, a four-story treehouse set up with suspension bridges, cargo nets, spray stations, and water-slide escape routes.
You'll find a host of other attractions at Great Wolf Lodge: The interactive MagiQuest gives kids a magic wand to face off against goblins while searching for hidden treasure, while Scooops Kid Spa pampers kids with flavored manicures and other treatments.
And for the big kids—ahem, Mom and Dad—there's a world of fun to be had nearby: Bass Pro Shop Outdoor World is any fisherman's dream come true; Dallas Cowboys Stadium will be roaring with football fans; and a host of restaurants, from Big Buck Brewery & Steakhouse to Ferrari's Italian Villa, cater to more mature palates.
Return to a plush bed (adults will have a king- or queen-size bed) and a special kids' quarters, complete with their own TV. Wolf Den and KidKamp Suites come equipped with a large kiddie cave and tent, respectively.
Pack enough bark and bite for your entire brood with this Escape to Great Wolf Lodge—both you and the kids will have plenty to howl about.
