As I predicted (darn, I’m good!) Great Wolf Lodge has announced a new 48 Hour sale. If you’re missing balmy temperatures already, you may want to get in on it!
Now, if you bought a Groupon or Living Social offer recently, you still got a better deal for the nicer rooms with more water park passes.
But, this sale should give you the cheapest rate you can get on the least expensive rooms. You’ll find the very lowest ones mid week, which are around 160.00 before tax, which is a real kick in the teeth. You’ll note they’re now quoting their rates, “Per person,” so it’s possible those of you with smaller families will get a better deal, but I suspect it’s going to be almost exactly the same as in the past.
One heads-up: If you’re a member of the military, law enforcement, or a first responder, SFM Facebook readers have reported that you can do better with the code HEROES. I tested it, and it did work out to be cheaper on the dates I checked, though not by much. You will be asked for i.d. at check in.
If you don’t qualify for the HEROES code, the sale codes are 48HOUR or R48HOUR if you’ve been before. The rates seem to be the same to me, though I only checked a few dates.
If you’ve never done Great Wolf before, you’ll want to read this post with tips and links. If it’s out of the budget even with the sale prices (I Totally get that), you can always hit the pool at the Federal Way Community Center for water park style fun at an eensy, beensy fraction of the price.
Btw, GWL does these sales at almost exactly the same time every year. You can mark your calendar, or sign up for their emails. Oddly, I didn’t get one this go-round, so thanks go to Angela at The Coupon Project for the heads-up. Have you checked TCP lately? Angela does so many fun things-way beyond coupons!
