Took a group of teen gals to the park for one night, had a large suite, food and park was over the top great, crowds manageable, employees super. Overall, this was a pricy evening, but worth the smiles and giggles.

This is a fantastic place to visit if you are in the mood for a water park vacation. The indoor part has a few good slides, and a wave pool. the outside park is good as well. the one thing that is bothersome is you have to pay extra to play in the arcade area. But other than that it... More

We booked a room for the weekend and the first room we were given was filthy, we asked to be moved and had to wait over hour for another room that was cleaner but needs a major deep clean for sure! The water park is great this time of year, wasn't near as busy as our previous visit this past... More

Great time had by all! I loved the body surfing and the rooms were really nice. We had plenty to do and didn't have time for everything

We spent MLK weekend at this location. The waterpark and game room were fun for our kids (6 and 3). If you go on a weekend where they are having any type of events (with youths) bring a noisemaker for the room. We asked to be located away from these groups, but were not accommodated. Had to call both nights... More

My grand children loved the Wilderness. Staff was very nice and professional. Accommodations were outstanding, clean, loved the rustic decor. Check In and Check Out were quick and easy. Our room had no coffee pot, but as soon as I asked, one was at our door brought by Jay, a friendly staff member. Thank you--We will be back!

This was the best location for a family vacation. We went during the snow storm and had the best of both worlds, snow and indoor water park!! It was GREAT! Played with the grandchildren ages 11, 10 and 2 1/2. Something for everyone, including parents. Great arcade area, climbing, tide pool and seperate toddler area, so no worries.

My family (2 young kids), my parents, and my brother and his family (4 young kids) stayed here for two nights immediately after Christmas. We had previously stayed at Great Wolf Lodge in Mason, OH, two years previous, so this was our second in-door water park trip. Check-in was smooth and they text you when your room is ready. Rooms:...
