There are many Great Wolf Lodges around the country, this is just one of them. The park features some pools, five water rides, a MagiQuest (which I did not do but would like to if I get a chance in the future, don't ask why), and a large hotel. I didn't actually stay at the hotel since I was with friends, and was invited as a visitor. Unfortunately, the park does not sell day passes - none of the Great Wolf Lodges do - you have to be invited as a visitor or stay overnight. It's a shame, because I enjoyed this water park. It will be harder to get in unless you have money or have connections.
The rides are:
Alberta Falls - Enclosed tube slides with some good twists and turns.
Totem Towers - Body speed slides, water can get in your nose at the end.
Mountain Edge Raceway - This is a fun one, you twist and turn on a mat and then go straight down racing the other riders. There are even clocks to time you, but when I was here, one was broken and one was missing.
River Canyon Run - Like Alberta Falls, but as a multi-person ride.
Howlin' Tornado - The King of the Wolves, the grand ride. You are thrown into a funnel and shuffled around after going down a steep slide. It is a 2-4 person ride.
Transportation: If you're flying, fly to CLT (Charlotte-Douglas Airport).
Depending on your financial situation, the cost may or may not be worth it.
