Great Wolf Lodge Cincinnati/Mason

Great Wolf Lodge is an exciting destination for families looking to enjoy water fun regardless of the weather. Our whole family loves staying at the Great Wolf Lodge. Our children adapted very well to the resort culture as they eagerly awaited story times at the clock tower, meet and greets with the mascots, and delicious buffet breakfast stocked with their favorites.

Great Wolf Lodge is famous for their large indoor (and seasonally outdoor) water park. The MagiQuest game was a hit for our children and nearly every other child in the resort. Guests can purchase a magic wand and then subscribe to a multi-day game with children racing throughout the lodge to collect clues at interactive magical areas. At 11 pm, just like magic, the hallways clear of children for lights out because the games are suspended.
