10 Family Things to Do at Great Wolf Lodge Georgia
1. The Waterpark
It may be the gem of every Great Wolf location, but the Great Wolf Lodge Georgia location includes 100,000-square-foot space that’s packed with tube slides, raft slides and splash pads. The indoor area is kept at a comfortable 84-degree temperature, while the adults can enjoy their own outdoor pool area.
Kids are given a colored wristband upon entering that designates which slides they are tall enough to ride. An overnight stay at Great Wolf Lodge Georgia includes two days of play at the expansive indoor waterpark. Guests can start playing in the waterpark at 1 p.m, even though check-in time is 4 p.m.
Waterpark Day Passes are available at Great Wolf Lodge Georgia. Guests can purchase a full day pass or a half-day pass, which begins at 4 p.m. The day passes include lifejackets, towels and wifi. The day passes are great if you’re not a guest at Great Wolf.
2. Great Wolf Adventure Park
If getting wet isn’t on your daily itinerary, families can play at the Adventure Park. The 40,000 square-foot area includes the popular Howlers Peak Ropes Course®. Kids will get a birds-eye-view as they carefully tackle the course. There are plenty of seating areas by the Adventure Park if parents want to relax nearby.
Guests can purchase a Paw, Pup or Wolf Pass as an addition to their Great Wolf Lodge stay. These are passes to different tiers of add-on experiences. Great Wolf recommends purchasing the pass according to your child’s age.

To really tire the kids for a good night’s sleep, let them run around to virtually battle an evil dragon. It is the brand’s exclusive live action adventure game where guests scour the resort using magic wands to uncover relics and runes needed to defeat dragons and goblins. If you’ve stayed at another Great Wolf Lodge location previously, your wand will work in Georgia too!
The Paw Pass and the Wolf Pass include MagiQuest upgrades. It’s worth checking out if your kids are interested in playing. Our toddler was too young to understand MagiQuest, but my older kids loved it.
4. Forest Friends Show
Located in the grand lobby, families can enjoy a brand new forest friends show. This interactive animated show utilizes the latest in 3D mapping technology to bring the Great Wolf Lodge characters to life in new and exciting ways and help tell the story of Great Wolf Lodge.
Check the daily event calendar for show times. There’s also pup yoga classes for little ones and a nightly bedtime show around 9 p.m. The kids love to meet in the lobby, in their pajamas, for the nightly bedtime show.
5. Special Area for Little Cubs
Dozens of kids activities are available for young children that range from Yoga Tails – a fun and creative yoga class set to engaging stories – to arts and crafts. It’s located next to the Great Wolf Lodge Build-A-Bear and designed for the youngest wolfs. In addition to the arts and craft tables, there’s an outdoor playground that’s fenced in. It’s a great area for younger kid to play in, without the worry of the waterpark.
6. Stay in a Family Suite
Want to know what kids love? A suite that’s designed with a sleeping space that’s just for them. The property offers a variety of rooms and suites to fit the needs to up to 12 guests total. The resort has several themed suites, including the popular Kid Cabin Suite and Wolf Den Suite. It looks like bunkbeds in a cabin, separate from Mom and Dad’s space.
7. Ten Paw Alley Bowling
Ten Paw Alley™ is the place to go for a competitive family game of bowling. Kids will love the light-up lanes and the bowling balls designed for little hands. It gets crowded in the evening hours when the waterpark is closed. I suggest blocking off time during the day for a more relaxing round of bowling. It’s include in the Wolf Pass and lane reservations are not required.
8. Northern Lights Arcade
The Northern Lights™ Arcade is the place to go for gaming. Kids can collect tickets from each arcade game and cash them in for fun prizes. It’s a classic arcade area. They’ve got arcade games for all ages, including little rides for toddlers. This is a very loud and overstimulating area of Great Wolf Lodge. If your kids have sensory issues, the arcade can be overwhelming.
9. Rustic Ridge Rock Climbing
Have you ever seen an indoor rock climbing wall in a hotel? Great Wolf Lodge Georgia has a vertical rock climbing wall that’s designed with kids in mind. It’s part of the Adventure Park. Even if kids have a Wolf Pass, they have to be at least 40″ to participate in the rock climbing. This is another area that gets crowded after the waterpark closes in the evening.
10. Family Style Dining Options
Dining is a key part of the Great Wolf experience. The resort has several restaurants and quick-service restaurants onsite. Barnwood is the only table-service restaurant at Great Wolf Lodge, whose menu is sourced from within a 100-mile radius of the resort ensuring freshness. Reservations can be made on OpenTable for Barnwood.
The quick-service restaurants are located near the Adventure Park and in the waterpark areas. These quick restaurants serve basic park foods – like chicken tenders, tacos, nachos and fries. Hungry as a Wolf offers pizza to go, if you want to take pizza back to your room.
Two familiar dining options are located at Great Wolf Lodge Georgia: Dunkin Donuts and Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream. Those two locations are popular, especially since a scoop of ice cream is included with all of the Pup, Paw and Wolf Passes.
Each dining area is equipped with highchairs and booster seats for kids. All Great Wolf Lodge locations are nut-free across the property and offer gluten-free options on each menu.
