Great Wolf Resorts, the world’s largest operator of indoor water parks, will invest $150 million to open a new resort in LaGrange, Georgia.

Great Wolf Lodge Georgia will provide families with nearly 500,000 sq. ft. of entertainment offerings and 456 guest suites along with world-class amenities to enjoy under one roof. The centerpiece of the resort will be a 93,000 sq. ft. indoor water park. The resort will feature signature Great Wolf Lodge rides and attractions, including high thrill water slides, a relaxing lazy river, wave pool and several water play areas for children.

“We look forward to bringing the Great Wolf Lodge brand to Georgia,” said Rubén Rodríguez, chief executive officer, Great Wolf Resorts, Inc., “Great Wolf Lodge Georgia will feature many of the amenities and activities our guests know and love, as well as several new experiences exclusive to this resort. As our company continues to expand, we could not think of a more perfect place than the location we found in LaGrange and we look forward to opening our doors to guests in just two short years.”

The resort is the result of great collaboration and partnership Great Wolf Resorts entered with the state of Georgia and the City of LaGrange. Governor Nathan Deal echoed Rodríguez’s statement, “We are excited that Great Wolf Lodge has chosen LaGrange to build their newest resort. Creating more than 600 jobs and investing more than $150 million, the economic impact from the Great Wolf Lodge Georgia operation will be felt immediately, and we anticipate additional investment in the region as operations ramp up. This project is a result of strong partnership between local and state leaders that will benefit the local community.”

Meeting and event planners can also look to Great Wolf Lodge Georgia for group and meeting needs. The property will have more than 16,000 sq. ft. of flexible conference space, built-in audio/video technology and customizable catering options.

Great Wolf Lodge Georgia will be a complete destination with a multitude of entertainment and dining options. Beyond the thrills of the water park, Great Wolf Lodge Georgia will feature dozens of entertainment choices, including Great Wolf Adventure Park, a full service entertainment center, and MagiQuest®, the brand’s exclusive live-action, interactive that takes place throughout the resort. The resort will have several restaurants and food outlets onsite including Barnwood, the brand’s unique full service restaurant and Hungry as a Wolf® handcrafted pizza and pasta.
