The highly-anticipated, 500-room Great Wolf Lodge Resort opened in Manteca this week.
The main attraction is a 95,000-square-foot indoor waterpark, which features 16 waterslides, raft rides, a lazy river and a wave pool.
Hannah Bond and her family gathered at the resort from across California to celebrate her 16th birthday Wednesday. She told FOX40 she was pleasantly surprised by how much fun she was having.
“I expected it to be fun for younger kids, but it’s super inclusive for all ages,” Hannah said.
Whether it’s the waterslides, virtual reality, magic quest, mining adventure or the 45,000 square-foot adventure park with ropes courses and mini-golf, the resort promises something for everyone.
“I’m looking forward to the mini-golf and the quest,” said guest Adrian Valdez.
Though the property boasts one of the few indoor water parks in the state, only guests will be able to take advantage of the attractions. Unlike some other Great Wolf Lodge locations, no day passes will be available for people not staying at the hotel.
The lodge is currently hiring. There are 50 local part-time and full-time positions posted on their website.
