Niagara Falls resort caters events to families with preschoolers, including early evening story time, pup painting and extra sweet activities

NIAGARA FALLS, ON. (August 12, 2010) – Young pups will rule Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls during September! The award-winning resort and indoor water park is throwing an activity-filled extravaganza designed just for its younger guests and their families.

From Sept. 7-19, Great Wolf Lodge is hosting “Wolf Pups Week,” where guests will experience an extra dose of age-appropriate adventures.

  • Little ones will hang on the edge of their seats as Great Wolf Lodge storytellers reveal exciting and inspiring tales of Niagara Falls. The daily story time takes place with bedtimes in mind—with special early evening hours.
  • Pup painting allows our younger guests to recreate the inspirational settings of Niagara Falls and its surrounding natural wonders—all with their own paws. Supervised finger painting takes place in the Lodge’s craft and creative hangout, the Cub Club.
  • Top off a long day at the Lodge’s indoor water park with a sweet treat. Children will be able to choose from mounds of toppings in order to decorate their very own Lodge cookie. Then, it’s bon appétit.

Of course, the Great Wolf Lodge’s major attraction is its massive all-indoor and weatherproof water park. It includes 13 waterslides, three pools, two whirlpools, a large outdoor heated spa experience, a giant wavepool, and a 500,000 litre lazy river.  That’s not to mention the looming Fort Mackenzie, a four-story interactive treehouse water fort that offers 12 levels of super-soaking fun, and of course, the Niagara Rapid Run, a water roller coaster that will definitely get the kids (and parents) howling.

It even offers exciting-yet-safe areas for preschool-age kids with fun Kiddie Slides and the Frog Pond, where little kids learn to jump from lily pad to lily pad.

When the young pups aren’t living it up at the water park, there’s still plenty to do—like the luxurious Scooops Kids Spa, where children between 4 and 12 can get manicures, pedicures and facials in a banana-split inspired environment. Or they can jumpstart the morning with the always entertaining Forest Friends Show, starring Mother Bear and Ringo Raccoon, in the Grand Living Room.

While little ones are the focus during “Wolf Pups Week,” there’s plenty to do for the rest of the family. Guests will find numerous styles of upscale, nature-inspired accommodations, multiple family-themed restaurants, Elements spa, an arcade with more than 100 games and an interactive miniature golf course.
