Celebrate Howl-O-Ween at Great Wolf Lodge


Howl-O-Ween at Great Wolf Lodge

Have you been to Great Wolf Lodge in Colorado Springs? If not, October is such a fun month to go check it out for Howl-O-Ween fun! 

Great Wolf Lodge will be celebrating the entire month, from October 1 – 31, 2018. The fun includes a Trick-Or-Treat Trail throughout the resort for kids to play interactive games and collect candy, and daily Monster Bash Dance Parties, where ghosts and ghouls can enjoy Howl-O-Ween songs that will make them move their funky bones. A giant spider (constructed from balloons!) greets you as your family enters the Grand Lobby. 

Great Wolf Lodge takes extra care in all their restaurants and activities to include kids and adults with food allergies. The Howl-O-Ween House (in the Grand Lobby) is a Teal Pumpkin stop for guests with food allergies and a non-food treat is distributed. During the the month of October, other children’s activities include Spooktacular Story Time, Critter Cartoons, and Paws On Projects with a silly, not-so scary twist. 

Details of Howl-O-Ween include:

  • Howl-O-Ween House in the lobby
  • Trick or Treat Trail 5:30p-7:30p nightly. 
  • Howl-O-Ween Theme Games in the Lobby nightly — Witch Hat Ring Toss, Mummy Bowling, Feed the Monster & etc.
  • Howl-O-Ween Theme Dance Party nightly
  • Boo Bingo 
  • Haunted Hussle Scavenger Hunt
  • Candy Corn Guessing Game
  • UnBoolieveable Character Meet, Greet & Treat
  • Howl-o-Ween Movie Nights
  • Character Breakfast Howl-o-Ween edition

Activities vary daily and based on location.  A complete listing of daily activities and times can be found in the Lodge Life event schedule (provided to guests upon check-in), verified in advance at GreatWolf.com or by calling the location directly.

Our Favorites at Great Wolf Lodge

  • Specifically for Howl-O-Ween, we loved that we got neon-orange wolf ears at check in! Our kids haven’t stopped wearing them all week since our visit!
  • The Waterpark! When you book a stay at Great Wolf Lodge, it includes unlimited access to a giant indoor water park with a wave pool, raft rides, body slides, and an interactive splash zone for younger kids. When you book one night at the resort, your room includes access to the Waterpark for two days! Our kids had an absolute blast at the Waterpark, and we had to drag them out when the day was done. The lifeguards at the Great Wolf Lodge in Colorado Springs are outstanding. They are certified by Ellis and Associates, an international Aquatic Safety and Risk Management Consulting firm dedicated to the prevention and elimination of drowning. The resort had a surprise audit the day before our visit, and they passed with a 100%! The lifeguards are constantly scanning and are incredible at keeping the water environment safe. As a mom, this is so important to me.
  • We spent much of our time in the Great Wolf Adventure Park – a dry land park that includes an arcade, mini golf course, bowling alley, high ropes course, MagiQuest role-playing fantasy game, and more. We will be back for more MagiQuest fun…the kids have more levels they want to complete! Did you know….you can visit the Great Wolf Adventure Park and the dry land activities without staying at the resort? This also includes the Ben & Jerry’s (the only one in Colorado Springs!) Go check it out for a day of fun!
  • FOOD! We had lunch at Barnwood, Great Wolf Lodge’s farm-to-fork dining concept. The Great Wolf Lodge CO Springs property was the first to have this concept when it opened its doors a year ago. All ingredients highlighted throughout the Barnwood menu are seasonal, influenced and sourced from local farms in a 50-mile radius of the property. Tapping into Colorado fare, this fall’s featured dish is Colorado Trout served with roasted cauliflower, quinoa and spring onion verjus, among many other seasonal menu items. The dishes were delicious, and again, are tailored to any food allergies. You can be sure you will still have an incredible dining experience even with a food allergy!

We received a hosted day at Great Wolf Lodge Colorado Springs, but the thoughts and feelings are our own. We would not promote a business or service to our readers that we did not personally enjoy and love! Great Wolf Lodge is truly one of a kind and we are thrilled to share this opportunity with our audience!

Tonya grew up in Iowa and attended the University of Northern Iowa, where she majored in Health Promotion (the degree you choose when you know are meant to make an impact but you don’t know exactly how) After graduating in 2003, her adventurous spirit lead her to pack up her little car and move to Colorado Springs. Her heart was easily won by the beautiful landscape, the amazing weather, colorful Aspen trees, and the fabulous people in this city. In 2008, she married her love and best friend, Ryan. They added two amazing boys to the family…Landon (2009) and Kellan (2011). After a rewarding career as a Director for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and a sales representative for Pfizer, her heart desired more time with her boys. In 2011, she became a work from home mom, focusing on her very busy boys full time and her health and wellness coaching business part time! Her passion as a mom includes building legos, trips to the zoo, family hikes, fishing, and camping. Her passion as a health coach is helping people see their potential, reach goals, and lead a healthy lifestyle. In her spare time (what is that again??), she loves working out, running, and reading. Her favorite things to do with her handsome hubby include riding bikes downtown Colorado Springs for date nights, hiking the incline, trying new (exotic) foods, spending time with great (adult) friends, and trying craft beers (inspired of course by her husband!).
