Careening down slides, bouncing in the surf, gathering underneath a giant bucket as a thousand gallons of water prepares to pour down – families will experience this joy, and much more water-filled fun. With the temperature set to a cozy 84-degrees year-round, the indoor waterpark facility will offer weatherproof family fun for every age and excitement level.

Great Wolf Lodge recently released the first details about the waterpark and the slides and attractions that will be offered inside the nearly two acres of water-fun. A sampling of the line-up of waterpark experiences include:

• Talking Stick Treehouse: Great Wolf Lodge’s signature, multi-level water play structure featuring suspension bridges, slides, spray stations and other water elements. Atop of Talking Stick Treehouse sits a massive, 1,000 gallon tipping bucket that pours out every three-to-four minutes, to the glee of the guests waiting below. Attached to the play structure are five water slides, two that originate from the top of the structure for more adventurous young ones and three at a lower-level for more of the toddler set.

• Wolf Tail: A thrill-seekers delight. Guests step into a launch pod and listen to the rhythmic sound of a heartbeat as they wait for the floor to drop out from underneath, hurling them into a nearly vertical, 20-foot free fall, followed immediately by a 360-degree, high-speed loop.

• Alberta Falls: This one or two-person tube slide features drops, chutes and serpentine 180- degree and 360-degree banked curves.
• River Canyon Run: A rollicking family raft ride that sends up to four riders on a white-water adventure down one of the park’s longest slides. With no steep drops, this is the perfect slide for parents and the kids to enjoy together.

The resort will also feature an oversized outdoor resort pool so families can take advantage of the favorable Arizona weather. Near the outdoor pool, Great Wolf Lodge will offer an adult-only oasis with relaxing chaise lounge chairs and a private hot tub for parents to enjoy.
