The Great Wolf Lodge opened in May 2018 and boasts all-suite accommodations approximately an hour's drive outside of Atlanta. Every suite features 39-inch flat-screen TVs, coffee makers and minifridges; some rooms include bunk beds and themed sleeping areas (the kids can bunk down in cave- or log cabin-decorated sleeping areas).
All lodge guests receive water park wristbands (the park is restricted to guests only), and even though check-in is at 4 p.m., you can arrive as early as 1 p.m. to hit the pool. The indoor water park includes six pools, 12 waterslides, family raft rides, a wave pool, water games and activities. There are also organized kids activities, including yoga, story time and pajama parties.
There are plenty of dining options on hand, featuring mostly casual cuisine ranging from sandwiches to pizza to tacos; the Barnwood restaurant features elevated casual small plates including short rib poutine, beer-brined barbecue chicken and jumbo lump crab cakes -- along with cocktails and craft beers. There's also a small bar for drinks and beers at the water park called (appropriately enough) The Watering Hole.
If the kids get tired of swimming, there's tons of entertainment on dry land -- the resort houses a mini golf course, a climbing wall, a mini-bowling alley, a ropes course and an arcade (additional fees apply). The resort also has Wi-Fi, self parking, towel service and concierge service included in the nightly resort fee -- and kids ages 12 and under even get free wolf ears.
