Great Wolf Lodge Southern California

If you have been down Harbor Blvd, you surely have seen this massive hotel and some of the giant water slides. The Great Wolf Lodge resort adventure begins in a massive, 84-degree indoor water park, packed with thrill rides, water slides and splashin’ fun for the little ones. But that’s not all, there are also all ages attractions, games, activities and adventures along with plenty of family-friendly dining options, all under one roof!


Unless you’ve been to another Great Wolf Lodge, you have never seen such an immense indoor water park. It’s huge! A wave pool, over a dozen slides, a lazy river and never get a sunburn.


We attended the recent grand opening of Great Wolf Lodge Southern California, the state’s first indoor/outdoor water park. Located in Garden Grove, this is the largest resort that Great Wolf Lodge has developed, featuring 943,000 square feet of water attractions, hotel rooms, retail, dining, parking and conference space. There is no strong smell of chlorine anywhere.


Aside from the amazing water park. Here are our top 5 other things to do at the Great Wolf Lodge:

  1. Howly Wood® XD Theater – two different films are available throughout the day.
  2. Howl at the Moon™ Glow Golf – 9 holes in pure blacklight!
  3. Ten Paw Alley™ – kid size bowling in an authentic bowling alley
  4. Scooops Kid Spa – mani-pedi’s for children
  5. MagiQuest, a one-of-a-kind interactive scavenger hunt game.

I received two emails from two wonderful readers giving me a heads up on this place. Let me just say this- I didn’t even know this place existed!! I love water parks and we have been to the typical ones in the area- Raging Waters, Soak City, etc.., However did you know that there is an amazing an affordable water oasis in La Mirada? I didn’t either!
Splash is the city of La Mirada’s Aquatic Center. Bucanner Bay is the water park and it features a lazy river(my fav), slides, spray areas and a beach. The park also features shade areas, cabanas that are available for daily rental, a snack bar and lockers.
Admission is $16 for adults and $11 for children 3-11. Under 3 are free. The park is open daily through September 7th and on the weekends until September 27. Hours of admission are 10:30am – 5:30pm.
It’s an amazing little place that you will have to check out.
