It’s Great Wolf Lodge 48 Hour Sale time.
This is the cheapest you can score a Great Wolf room ( some deal sites offered specials last year that were even better for bigger suites and families. I don’t have any way of knowing whether they’ll run those again, but I’ll be on the lookout for you).
Do note that readers have reported getting an even better deal with the code HEROES that is for members of the military, law enforcement, and first responders. If you qualify for that discount, be sure to check. Yes, you will be asked for id at check in.
You’ll find rates as low as 140.00, which is a good price for this spot. If you’ve been before, you should have gotten an email that you can click through to make a reservation, or you can go to the Great Wolf Lodge site.
Returning guests can use code R48HOUR and newbies can use 48HOUR. Once you plug in a date, you can then use the rate calendar to search for other options. Usually they have this deal on the home page, but weirdly it doesn’t seem to be there right now. You have until 9PM Wednesday to book your room.
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- or this time of year, you have a few more weeks to hit many of the area’s awesome outdoor pools. Try the slides at the Henry Moses Aquatic Center in Renton, or the wave pool at Kandle Park in Tacoma! I have all of those fun, splashy spots right here!
What else is going on this week? Library programs have wound down for the summer, but you can still hit a Free kids’ concert in Bonney Lake or Auburn, get in some free bowling or roller skating, or go to a free kids’ summer lunch program. Here at the site, I’ll have more day trip ideas for you and a blackberry picking post with the SFM grandma’s favorite cobbler recipe! You won’t want to miss it. For more ideas, be sure to check the calendar or explore the menu bar!
