Great Wolf Lodge celebrates Halloween, Thanksgiving and Winter! (Win a stay)!BOSTON AND AROUND, CONTESTS, REVIEWS & CONTESTS, SPONSORED | Nirasha Jaganath | October 9, 2014 at 7:07 am
Recently we were invited to a media event at Great Wolf Lodge New England and I was ecstatic because I had already spent a night during the Opening so I knew it was ten times more fabulous than those advertisements on TV can capture (even though they have been known to entrance any kid or adult alike). We were going to be experiencing a myriad of seasonal celebrations as a preview to what was coming up at Great Wolf Lodge.
It always bugs me that Halloween finishes too quickly but the folks at Great Wolf Lodge know how to extend Halloween. Trick or treat happens all month long and you can do it without stepping outside to braze the New England chilly air. Kids can decorate themed totes, listen to themed stories at the nightly story time in the lobby. Best part? The Monster Bash! To add to the October fun (as if we needed more) the magician, Steve Charette, will be adding to magic with his shows!

While I like the idea of keeping my family close at Thanksgiving (and turkey too), I am a little more “blah” with the rest of the Thanksgiving menu. Sure the Pilgrims ate it that way but man we have more flavors today so you can keep the rest of the menu. I was blown away by how they not only brought every traditional dish but they added new flavor and texture. Gone was the watery squash but thin slices of finely roasted squash (that had my hubby drooling) took their place. Pasta with a creamy pumpkin white sauce topped with roasted pumpkin seeds. To. Die. For! And while they had lovely roast meats the seafood mix of shrimp and crab had me enjoying the fresh new twist. The fact that they were served in a frozen cornucopia just added to the attraction (I adore functional decoration).
How much I loved the food? Well the foodie in me which craves the opportunity to cook is actually tempted to let their chef take the Thanksgiving dinner reins.
We live in New England and snow is a big part of our lives (whether we like it or lump it) so I love that Great Wolf have actually embodied it in their events. Honestly celebrating it without having to don all that winter gear gets a full thumbs up from me.
They make it SNOW. Inside!!!
I would not joke about it. And though the science kid I am that understand the workings of it, the look on my kids faces seeing snow makes it totally magical. That is exactly what it is about, right? They do this in the lobby. Every night!!
You need to sweeten the deal? Well they have this life size gingerbread house that you will get a bite out of (literally) for just $10 which is donated to charity. See, a feel-good element right there, the season for giving covered in one tasty bite.
