Metro Mama & Metro Baby

Kids love the refreshing suspense of water slides, and the nirvana of water slide adventure is located within two hours of Manhattan in the Poconos at the Great Wolf Lodge. Have a summer outing that will thrill and chill.

The Great Wolf Lodge is lauded for its eleven massive water slides that twist endlessly down into a pool of water: body slides, tube slides, kiddie slides, family flume waterslide, water roller coaster ride and the cannon bowl tube ride. Pools include a giant wave pool, recreation pool, zero-depth entry children’s pool, lazy river, and adult and family whirlpools. That should be enough water excitement for everyone.

A Fort Mackenzie interactive waterfort features 12-level suspension bridges, cargo nets, web crawls and over 60 guest-activated water effects. And there’s more: a 1,000-gallon tipping water douses guests by surprise. The lodge also offers a grand lobby with antler chandeliers, an on-site Starbucks, extensive game room, indoor slides and an outdoor activity pool.

All 401 rooms at the lodge are suites, and some can sleep as many as eight. Parents will appreciate the Aveda Concept Spa and Iron Horse fitness room. For wee ones, Cub Club has daily crafts, fun activities and a nightly bedtime story in pajamas. Older kids will love the interactive fantasy game MagiQuest, played in halls and other parts of the lodge.

Visit www.greatwolf.com/locations/poconos/ for more information, and get ready to ride the slides.
