We are getting ready with fall less than two weeks away, that means Halloween is right around the corner!  Time to get the kids excited to start planning their costumes, collaborating on the best trick-or-treat routes and asking around for the coolest Halloween party to attend. Parents, look no further! Great Wolf Lodge Williamsburg is offering all of this and more in one place for a ghoulishly delightful, and safe fun-filled vacation!

 

Kids and parents enjoy these Halloween-themed activities at Great Wolf Lodge 

 

Trick-or-Treat Trail – Multiple trail stops will be set up throughout the Lodge where little goblins and ghouls can collect candy and participate in an interactive activity such as the Witch Hat Ring Toss, Mummy Bowling, Pin the Wolf Ears on Mr. Bones, and more.

Howl-O-Ween House – A life-sized, not-so-haunted house will come alive in the Grand Lobby, which will also serve as the first stop on the Trick-or-Treat Trail. Additionally, the Howl-O-Ween House will serve as a Teal Pumpkin stop for guests with food allergies and a non-food treat will be distributed for guest enjoyment. 

Costume Parade – Guests will put their boo-tiful costumes on display and join the Great Wolf Kids for a Costume Parade around the Grand Lobby.

Monster Bash Dance Party – Witches, mummies and more can show off their scariest dance moves set to favorite Halloween tunes that are sure to get everybody’s bones moving and grooving.

Spooktacular Story Time – A Great Wolf Lodge tradition takes on a Howl-O-Ween twist as young guests are treated to a festive Halloween story. The interactive tales will transport guests into a boo-bit scary, but mostly silly land every night in the Grand Lobby.

 

Get ready to get your plastic pumpkin pails and plenty of ghostly garments for costume parades, families can’t forget to bring their bathing suits for Great Wolf’s massive 84-degree indoor waterpark, featuring areas specifically designed for toddlers, tweens, teens, and even adults. And when it’s time to dry off, families can enjoy dry play activities, such the interactive live-action role-playing game Magiquest® or Howlers Peak Ropes Course. There’s something for everyone to enjoy!
