This was our family's first time at any Great Wolf and I am confident we will return to the one in Traverse City. I was impressed overall with the attentiveness and friendliness of all the park staff.
We watched a new hire being trained in the water park area and i can understand now how each of the young people in that area seem to be in constant watch over the children and adults in their care. Very disciplined for the most part especially where deeper water was concerned. Very clean as well. I wish the ambient temp was a little closer to the 85 degree mark since my child and many others were seen shivering. Water was excellent temp but seemed colder once walking around. Everything was in working order and bathrooms were clean.
We were on the 4th floor at the end of the long hallway which proved to be very helpful in minimizing noises. Room was exceptionally clean including the bathroom. Nice little balcony with table and chairs that we used to dry swimsuits ;). You also get a little extra ceiling height on the top floor as they have graciously matched the roofline.
Come with $$ and lots of it. Seems that the specialty shops have pretty good fare such as ice cream, sweets, and even Starbucks for the adults. Camp Critter breakfast buffet was the only real complaint we had during our stay. Healthy is not their priority. Fruit was not fresh, oatmeal was actually disgusting. Everything else is the usual bacon, eggs, biscuits, hashbrown fare that my 6yr old refused to eat. For the money this is a 'must avoid'. There is a Mc Donalds literally across the street that will cost you about one third and taste 3 times better.
The arcade is not as exciting as the rest of the park but it is pretty good. Next time we will definitely try the Magi Quest game that we saw literraly every one over about 7 playing. The have done a great job incorporating that game's features all around the massive lobby and surrounding areas.
We will return. The personnel and park amenities truly made it a great vacation for us.
