Great Wolf chooses Minnesota to open 15th indoor waterpark resort

The Bloomington, Minnesota-based Water Park of America has been acquired by Great Wolf Resorts and is now closed for renovations and rebranding.

The US indoor waterpark operator paid US$39m (£31m, €37m) for the facility, which originally opened in 2006, and the adjoining Radisson hotel. This will be Great Wolf’s first foray into Minnesota state. It will open next winter.

“Our paw print is expanding across the country, and we are excited to open our next Great Wolf Lodge in Minnesota,” said Great Wolf Resorts CEO Rubén Rodríguez. “We look forward to contributing to the region’s growth by making Great Wolf Lodge Minnesota a world-class family destination with incredible family attractions, entertainment, dining and accommodations all under one roof.”

Like other Great Wolf Lodges, the Bloomington resort will boast an indoor water park with “Fort Mackenzie” waterplay treehouse and tipping bucket, a Crooked Creek lazy river, Slap Tail Pond wave pool, River Canyon Run family raft ride and variety of thrilling slides.

Alongside the waterpark, there will be other signature facilities, including a Great Wolf Adventure Park FEC, Scooops children’s spa, and Great Wolf experiences, such as interactive adventure game MagiQuest, Yoga Tails and the Forest Friends Show. The hotel side will have 404 family rooms and there will be a number of themed dining options.

This will be the company’s 15th resort in the US.
