Build-A-Bear Workshop At Great Wolf: All The Details
What makes this spot worth your family’s time? All of the exclusive products that you can only get at Great Wolf Lodge. Basically, just like the usual Build-A-Bear experiences inside malls, you’ll be building a furry friend to take home.
We love that it doubles as an experience at the resort as well as a souvenir that the kids can take home to enjoy.
They offer plush designs that are only available to build at GWL resorts. All of the Great Wolf characters are available to build.
Here are the Great Wolf Resort Characters you can build:
- Wiley The Wolf
- Violet The Wolf
- Oliver Racoon
- Rachel Racoon
- Brinley Bear
- Sammy the Squirrel
Plus we’ve seen plush options, other than their mascots, that are typically available. There has been traditional bears, monkeys and dragon options too.
Just like the usual Build-A-Bear experience, kids will go through different stations to build their plush. After picking out what design they want, kids go to the filling station. They make a wish and place a heart into their plush.
After that, there are so many accessory options to pick from! This is oftentimes the most exciting part for children and what can hurt parents wallets the most. They can pick out everything from shoes to underwear and scents for their new furry friend.

Paying For Your Experience
