Property at a Glance: Great Wolf Lodge Chicago/Gurnee

The heart and soul of Great Wolf Lodge Chicago/Gurnee is its 80,000-square-foot indoor water park. Splashy rides such as Alberta Falls—a four-story double-raft water slide—and a zero-depth-entry wave pool with 3-foot swells surround the park’s iconic hub: a four-story treehouse with a 1,000-gallon tipping bucket. Younger kids will have a blast with the water slides and gentle spray features of Whooping Hollow and Cub Paw Pool.

The water park, which hovers around 84 degrees all year long, isn’t the resort’s only family-friendly activity. You’ll also find an arcade with more than 100 games and mini bowling at Ten Paw Alley.

  • Extended water park access: You can enter the water park at 1 p.m. on the day you check in and stay until close on the day you check out (essentially 2 days’ water park admission).
  • Family-friendly fun: There are plenty of games and activities for kids of all ages. Explore all activities by age group here.
  • Hands-on crafts and activities such as face painting and balloon twisting during the Lunch Time Lineup can entertain young children when they want a break from the water park action.
  • Roomy suites comfortably sleep up to eight people. The Wolf Den suite provides extra privacy with enclosed bunk beds.
  • Where to eat: There are eight restaurants and snack bars.
  • Add a Paw Pass or Pup Pass to your stay to enjoy kid-friendly activities and sweets at Creation Station, MagiQuest, and more at a discounted rate. See everything that’s included—as well as other available packages—here (additional fees apply).
  • Safety first: Complimentary life jackets in multiple sizes and trained lifeguards help keep families safe and secure.
  • Distance from Chicago: 45 miles

We had a great time! Park and room were both clean. Gave 4 out of 5 🌟 bc they were EXTREMELY understaffed. The Waterpark lines were quick, however the rope climbing course, Magicquest, ice-cream, and put put golf were hour long wait times. Felt SO bad for the rope course worker (Leo), as he was by himself most of the evening (at least while my husband was in line for over an hour).
