Visit Great Wolf Lodge

Great Wolf Lodge started out as a small indoor water park resort in the Wisconsin Dells area. It’s been over 20 years since we first opened our doors and we now have 18 locations across the United States and Canada. While our indoor water park was traditionally open only to guests staying at the resort, we now offer passes for anyone who wants to drop in for the day!

If you’re crazy about water adventures, playgrounds, slides and thrill rides, you won’t want to miss out on an opportunity to experience Great Wolf Lodge. Check out the information below for more on the best indoor water park near Los Angeles!

Features of Our Water Park

We keep our indoor water park at a comfortable 84-degrees all year round, making it a perfect place to escape bad weather. We offer a variety of body slides, tube slides, raft rides, activity pools and splash areas for every member of the family, from toddlers and teens, to parents and grandparents.

If you’re traveling with little ones, we suggest visiting our Cub Paw Pool, which is filled with spray features and kiddie slides. Our lazy river, also known as the Crooked Creek, is another popular option among guests traveling with small children. Family and friends can relax and float down the river together. You don’t have to worry about pushing yourself along, either. The current does all the work for you!

Of course, you can’t visit an indoor water park without catching a wave. Head over to Slap Tail Pond and splash around the swells sweeping in from the deep end. You’ll be transported to the ocean within minutes of stepping into the tide. Surfs up!

Can’t Miss Water Slides

We’ve got four-story tube rides, a water-jet fueled vortex and raft-riding adventures the family won’t soon forget. While certain slides can only accommodate one guest at a time, plenty of others can seat up to four guests at once. Experience the thrill together!

Our activity pools are also a great place to splash around, hop on a float and enjoy the water. You’ll be sure to find a few basketball hoops located around Chincook Cove for you to practice your hook shots, free throws and rebounds. You can even take part in a friendly round of water basketball! Adventure seekers will want to explore some of our thrill rides, including the Howlin’ Tornado, our six-story tube ride. See how far you ride up the walls before your splash landing! You can enjoy some family fun on the River Canyon Run. This multi-person raft ride just happens to be one of our most popular water features! 

Water Park Attractions

Even if you aren’t crazy about swimming, you’re sure to have a blast at our indoor water park. Our Cool Cabana Rentals provide a cozy spot for guests to rest, retreat and re-hydrate. Each comes complete with refreshing beverages, towels, seating and “smart” amenities to enjoy.

Don’t worry about working up an appetite after spending a day splashing around the indoor water park. You can refuel at any one of our onsite dining options. We’ve got all the classics, including pizza, burgers and ice cream! Parents can even enjoy a cup of coffee or adult beverage around the park.

While our indoor water park remains our standout feature, we do offer a handful of other attractions. Guests can engage in a game of laser tag or challenge themselves on our ropes course from the safety of a climbing harness or win prizes over at our Northern Lights Arcade. We also offer MagiQuest, a live-action role-playing game. To play, kids must choose their very own magic wand which they can take home with them after completing the game!

You can find members of the Great Wolf Lodge team located around the park, ready to accommodate your every need. We also have individuals assigned to read stories, paint faces, teach art classes and yoga for kids!
