Great Wolf Lodge Resort Pocono is a sprawling, 400-room family resort and waterpark is the Pocono Mountains outpost of the wildly popular waterpark-themed chain of Great Wolf Resorts. The resort is child-centric with plenty of amenities that appeal to parents as well.
The main activities center around the 84-degree indoor water park. The Howlin’ Tornado and Hydro Plunge water coaster thrill rides co-exist with tamer activity pools and zero-depth-playgrounds, including the Cub Paw Pool for the little ones. Consult with one of the resort’s “pack members” for a list of daily activities at check-in.
A Parent in Silver Spring says: Our verdict? Great Wolf Lodge Pocono Mountains was every bit as awesome as the commercials on TV. And it was not a budget breaker! I was completely surprised and we were all completely into our howling good time at Great Wolf Lodge.
