Great Wolf big hit in Williamsburg

Posted Tuesday, November 29, 2005 1:12 PM | Contributed by Jeff

Apparently the newest major attraction in Williamsburg has won fans in more than one age bracket since opening at the end of March. The 301 suites in the lodge were filled soon after, and the summer proved a busy one for the Wisconsin company's first opening outside the Midwest.

eightdotthree's avatar This is really no big surprise, for an area with lots of touristy things to do there is little choice in a nice place to stay.

Do we trust anything they say? Given their use of alternative accounting practices AND the fact their rep was caught lying in this article, I'm a little skeptical when it comes To Great Wolf...

Okay, I am either blind or stupid, or quite possibly both, but where does it say the rep was caught lying?

The part about the 8000 gallons...

The kid quoted at the beginning of the article said it was 8000 gallons, which the writer later said she exaggerated by a factor of 8. The caption on the picture next to the article mentions a 1000 gallon bucket.

Wow, JR. You have some real problems with Great Wolf. The fact is that they are packing them in both in VA, and PA. You could easily expect that weekends will be booked up for the first winter. At $250 and up per night for a family of four you won't see me staying there overnight. I can get a 4 season pass to Six Flags Great Adventure for about the same price, you tell me which is a better value. There are parks out there like this, but none have been building like Great Wolf, and they will continue to rake in the bucks, (but not from me) until someone comes in and offers similar accomodations for a better price.

Jeff's avatar Uh, staying at a good hotel costs $150+ a night to begin with. Add in water park admission for four and it's not a bad value at all.
