Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound, WA is adding another new attraction to the roster. Construction is underway for Great Forest Challenge, a family activity where groups of players travel through a series of rooms while solving puzzles and maneuvering through laser mazes. The new Great Forest Challenge will replace GR8_Space, the former teen hangout area that offered Xbox games and an internet cafe.

Great Wolf has recently added attractions to several of its resorts.  The Grapevine location added the Howly Wood XD Theater and Lazer Frenzy. Howl in One Glow Golf was added to the Pocono Mountains lodge. The Williamsburg location added Oliver’s Time Challenge late last year.

The Grand Mound, WA lodge will be the first to get Great Forest Challenge. The concept is similar to Lazer Frenzy at the Grapevine location, but takes the concept to the next level by adding puzzles and challenges to the mix. Great Forest Challenge is intended to be played as a group, which should make it a popular activity for families to enjoy together.

Construction began in late January and will likely be completed in time for a summer opening. Great Wolf Lodge has already added “coming soon” posters in the resort’s elevators and added a teaser page to the website to create excitement for the attraction.

It is nice to see Great Wolf Resorts continue to invest in their properties. When we visited last week, my son had a lot of fun playing the new Howl at the Moon Glow Golf and we spent a lot of time in the renovated Northern Lights Arcade. We are looking forward to giving the Great Forest Challenge a try when the construction wraps up.

    so. we just returned home from great wolf, and by a fluke, me and my 3 kids (ages 3.5, 5, and nearly 11) were invited to try it out (i guess they were testing it). it was pretty cool. my oldest declared it “awesome”, my middle kid took part in it all but had some trouble reaching things, and at one point my youngest decided the lasers were gonna REALLY poison her ;).  we came out of there sweating, and it was supper fun and challenging, for me at least! a good variety of activities inside/
    i wonder how much they will be charging? we finally did some “extra” things this year, like magiquest and the arcade. we did not get to do the glow golf thingor any of the craft paid activities.

      Hi Molli – Thank you for sharing your experience. I didn’t realize they were that far along with the construction. It sounds like it could open any day now. My son is about the age of your middle child, so I appreciate the tip about some items being difficult to reach. I expect that he will like the laser part best.

      Great Wolf does a good job of offering a variety of activities, so there is plenty to do even if you visit a few times. Your younger children would likely enjoy the Cub Club crafts. The glow golf was a little much for my 4-year-old. Mainly, he wasn’t a fan of the darkness and noises. It seems like a good activity for older kids though.

      Thanks again for the comment.
