Had a great time!!!!!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Great place for families!from A TripAdvisor Member
The plan was to go to Worlds of Fun and then stay at the Great Wolf lodge that evening and into the next day to play at the water park. We had a horrible time at Worlds of Fun and would have much rather stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge the entire time instead. The only complaints I have about the lodge was that it was hard to find from Worlds of Fun and the directions they gave us were horrible AND the service in the restaurant was terrible. Like the other reviews stated, the wait for a table was unreal and much too long for children. Our waitress, bless her heart, was not the best but it was because she had a huge section entirely to herself. She did the best she could. If they would have been fully staffed, it would have been better. The food, I thought, was pretty good.
Anyway, I am planning on taking my children again within the next couple of months and we can't wait! The only thing I will change is that we will definitely eat at Famous Dave's across the street instead of the restaurant in the lodge!
A night to remember!from A TripAdvisor Member
The staff was very polite and helpful, but what impressed me most was the staff at the restraunt. We had an evening wedding so it was rather late by the time we arrived at the lodge. Having been too busy to eat all day we were both starved so went down to the lodge restraunt to see if it was still open. We got there just as they were about to close.
Not wanting to make anyone stay later than scheduled we started to turn to go back to the room when a waitress stopped us and invited us to come in. We said we would order something quick, and easy, so not to mess up the kitchen again. We were told not to worry about that and to order whatever we wanted. We were the only people in the place and I felt like a Princess. Right after we were married we found out that my husband has a terminal illness and has only a few months left. I want to thank the staff at the GWL for making our one and only trip as man and wife so very special. It is a memory I will cherish forever!
Great Getaway!!!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Also compared to the prices in those sorts of places, The Great Wolf Lodge was an outstanding bargin without the feeling that the place was trying to get every last penny from the customer. I would however mention that I could see that on a weekend or busy day that things as far as service may slide a little, but that happens at most places.
GREAT RELAXING PLACE TO UNWIND AND LET THE KIDS RUN FREE FOR HOURS ON END.
Really KID-ORIENTED but great fun for adults too!from oscarnominee
First-timers and we loved itfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We headed straight for the water park. It was a non-stop blast! A couple of hours there and we were all starved, so we took a dinner break and enjoyed the atmosphere at the hotel restaurant. By eating a little earlier around 5:30 we missed most of the crowd. Our boys enjoyed their dinner "buckets" (cute!). We also took a quick trek through the black-lit arcarde (very cool) and then headed back to the water park. Our boys really dug the "Wolf Den" in our room (adorable!) although the bunk bed was a little tight for our 11-year-old. We liked having easy access to all the amenities under one roof. Very family-oriented and not too "hob-knobbish." The next morning we skipped breakfast in favor of the water park from 8:30 until 10. Next time we'll take along some cereal bar snacks. We hit Cabela's for lunch. It was very crowded, but there was some great live bluegrass music.

The weekend I want to forget!!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Then we found that there weren't enough pillows...we were told there were no more available. One of my children slept with their coat folded as a pillow. Then we asked for more towels (only 2 per room for a room for 4). Asked for them...we were told that they would be delivered in the morning, (which they weren't). The water park area is nice to see.
The lines were long. The kids enjoyed themselves. Again...the towels were sparse and very small. We had other incidents (trying to order adult beverages via room service, found dirty linen in the room, phone stopped working) that we tried to work through. This was a family vacation and I didn't want to set a bad example by complaining about numerous things. I feel it was WAY over priced and that it is not worth the time nor money.
Nice hotel but only under certain conditionsfrom A TripAdvisor Member

Top Local Tips for Kansas City
Cabellas As a New Yorker, I had never heard of this store. It was quite an experience just to look around at all the decorations.
Surrounding area....... Great Wolf is right next to the NASCAR race track. This new area has really developed and has anything you need in a very close proximity. The Barbeque place across the street is VERY good...above average!
Arriving Get there either before 1pm or not till around 6:30 pm. other wise it is really busy and you will have a long wait.
