PERRYVILLE, Md. – Great Wolf Resorts’ largest lodge in company history will arrive in Maryland this August.
As reported by The Baltimore Sun, the lodge is being called the “most ambitious” Great Wolf Lodge ever by Jason Lesecki, vice president of corporate communications.
“Not only is this our largest water park we have ever built, we are adding new elements to the mix like new slides. We also have a new lobby show, and we are bringing together 25 years of learning to Maryland at this lodge,” Lesecki says.
As reported by The Sun, the $250 million project will be the company’s 20th resort overall and is expected to employ as many as 850 employees.
It will feature 12,000 square feet of conference space with breakout rooms, built-in audiovisual technology, and customizable catering options, and 700 family-style suites in various categories and styles including themed suites with bunk beds.
Great Wolf Lodge Maryland will feature a 128,000-square-foot waterpark, which will feature two dozen waterslides and two rides making their Great Wolf Lodge debut—High Paw Holler and Forest Flume.
The article describes High Paw Holler as a “body slide that mimics the sensation of racing down a ski slope. Riders will traverse through a dark tunnel and enter into a saucer, picking up speed before a “drop and dive” experience as they race along the outer wall.
Forrest Flumes is a 275 ft body slide that accelerates riders through open flumes into back-to-back turns, 360-degree loops, and high-banking loops.
On top of this, the resort will have a 57,000-square-foot family entertainment center known as the Great Wolf Adventure Park featuring MagiQuest; bowling; an arcade; a high ropes course; an outdoor, zero-entry pool; and a hot tub surrounded by outdoor cabanas.
