    Great Wolf’s gingerbread experience

    No Comments

    From the Toronto Sun:

    Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls is creating a life-size gingerbread house for family dining.

    Instead of a little ginger house with frosting, gumdrops and candy canes used a dinner centerpiece, the lodge builds a gingerbread house large enough for a one-of-a-kind holiday dining experience for lodge visitors and local families.

    It stands nearly two stories tall and seats up to six for a meal full of memories.

    This year’s edition is set to begin taking reservations Nov. 24, with up to nine seatings each day for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls Creates Life-Size Gingerbread House for Family Dining

    Life-size gingerbread house will open for dining on Nov. 24 to raise money for the Child Advocacy Centre Niagara

    Niagara Falls, ON (Oct. 13, 2011) – For many families building a gingerbread house is a holiday tradition. The Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls turns that holiday tradition into a larger-than-life adventure.

    Instead of a little ginger house with frosting, gumdrops and candy canes used as a dinner room centerpiece – The Great Wolf Lodge builds a gingerbread house large enough for a one-of-a-kind holiday dining experience for Lodge visitors and local families. It stands nearly two stories tall and seats up to six for a meal full of memories.

    Life-size Gingerbread House at Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls

    Annually the award-winning resort and one of Canada’s largest indoor waterparks has constructed this gingerbread house to make family memories and raise thousands of dollars for charity – this year’s edition is set to begin taking reservations on November 24, up to nine seatings each day for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    It takes more than 300 hours, hundreds of pounds of gingerbread, chocolate, cookies, pretzels and candy to build. General Manager of The Lodge, Keith Simmonds, said that during construction the entire lodge is filled with the sweet aroma of Gingerbread and chocolate.

    Once construction is complete families will be able to walk through the front door of this real-life gingerbread house and sit down for a holiday meal. Dining reservations are available to the public, as well as to Great Wolf Lodge guests.

    This year, the Lodge is partnering with Child Advocacy Centre Niagara, a group that helps abused children in Niagara’s twelve municipalities. The $20 reservation fee (meals are additional) will go to the agency.

    This marks the fifth consecutive year that the Great Wolf Lodge has partnered with a local agency.

    The gigantic gingerbread house will be part of a whole Winter Wonderland experience at the Lodge to help families soak in the holiday spirit and cherish the gift of time spent together.

    Winter Wonderland activities including:

    • Snowflakes falling in the Grant Living Room
    • Picturesque horse-drawn sleigh rides straight out of a holiday carol
    • Visits by Santa, Mrs. Claus and all of their cheery elves
    • “Taffy on Snow” treats – hot maple syrup drizzled on a bed of snow and rolled into a popsicle stick
    • Holiday magic performed right before your eyes-during the Forest Magic shows
    • And fun and games the whole family will enjoy

    For gingerbread house dining reservations, call (905) 354-4888 ext. 5718, or visit the restaurant’s host stand. Select holiday dining times are available. Those with reservations can be seated at the gingerbread house through Jan. 9 (does not include New Years Eve).

    Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls celebrates “Howl-O-Ween” with spooky family activities

    No Comments

    On Monday I linked to a Toronto Sun blurb about the Great Wolf Lodge and some Halloween activites. It turns out that is from a press release, and I received it too. Here is the whole thing.

    By day, the Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls is the ultimate family fun zone with kids taking part in a variety of wet and wild activities in Canada’s largest indoor water park.

    But when the sun goes down during Halloween season, the Great Wolf Lodge undergoes an amazing transformation and becomes a surreal, slightly spooky setting for a one-of-a-kind Halloween experience.

    It’s all part of a “Howl-O-Ween at the Wolf” from Oct. 14-31.

    This all-out family extravaganza begins at the door with intricate haunted Lodge décor, and includes daily activities for families that are fun, safe and just a boo-bit scary.

    Families will enjoy:

    • A trick-or-treating trail that coils through a haunted forest
    • A monster mash family dance
    • Pumpkin carving
    • Witchy crafts
    • Costume parade and contest (with prizes, of course)
    • Spooky story time with lodge characters
    • Wolf science – where you can concoct science experiments that are sure to impress

    The Lodge houses a massive all-indoor and weatherproof water park. It includes 13 waterslides, three pools, two whirlpools, a large outdoor heated spa experience, a giant wavepool, and a 500,000 litre lazy river. That’s not to mention the looming Fort Mackenzie, a four-story interactive treehouse water fort that offers 12 levels of super-soaking fun, and of course, the Niagara Rapid Run, a water roller coaster that will definitely get the kids (and parents) howling.

    Guests will find numerous styles of upscale, nature-inspired accommodations, multiple family-themed restaurants, Elements spa, an arcade with more than 100 games and an interactive miniature golf course.

    The other day I received the following press release about an event at the Great Wolf Lodge:

    Monster truck rides will cost $40 per adult and $25 per child or $100 per family of four. A portion of the profits raised will benefit the Walker Family Cancer Centre – a new oncology unit opening in St. Catharine’s in 2013.

    The Bucking Bronco is one of Canada’s largest monster trucks and has been voted one of the top adventures in the world by a leading men’s magazine. The truck features tires measuring almost two metres high and a state-of-the-art professional 4-link suspension system designed from professional race trucks. It is also equipped with professional racing seats and seatbelts to ensure the highest comfort and safety for riders.

    This event is open to guests of Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls, as well as the public.
