Great Wolf Lodge

As family-friendly Poconos destinations continue to announce reopening dates, one of its popular resorts, Great Wolf Lodge, has announced it will welcome guests back this week.

On Friday, June 19, the indoor water park will open its doors and launch its new Paw Pledge program, an initiative meant to keep families safe and healthy while they play together at the resort.

“We have been working to develop and implement comprehensive reopening plans based on guidance and protocols recommended by the government and CDC, and we’re excited to get families back to having fun with confidence because of the new safeguards we put into place across our resorts,” said Murray Hennessy, CEO for Great Wolf Resorts.

Great Wolf’s reopening program includes sanitizing frequently touched surfaces in the waterpark, attraction areas, restaurants and other public spaces. All guest rooms will be disinfected and sanitized prior to check-in, with special attention paid to high-touch areas. The Lodge’s occupancy levels will be reduced to 50 percent or less to provide space for families, with a minimum of six feet separation from those outside their traveling party. Staff will undergo a wellness and temperature check before reporting to work and will be required to wear masks in situations where social distancing may be difficult.

Markers will be placed in lines for water slides, attractions, food outlets, retail shops and the front desk to keep six feet between guests and staff, and chairs and tables will be spaced throughout the water park to ensure proper social distancing.

Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the resort, and the Lodge will provide personal protection amenities like disinfectant wipes, sanitizer and face coverings for guests (free masks will be available at the front desk).

Wherever social distancing may be a challenge, Great Wolf Lodge will install plexiglass barriers to provide separation, and will implement contactless payment options at the resort. Food outlets will also offer remote ordering with pick-up options so guests can eat in their rooms if they prefer.

Other Poconos hotspots, like Kalahari and Camelback have partially or completely reopened.
