LAGRANGE, GA. — Great Wolf Resorts Inc. has unveiled plans to open a new $150 million destination resort in La Grange, approximately 70 miles southwest of Atlanta, by 2018. The company has entered into a partnership with the state of Georgia and the City of LaGrange, but no other details of the partnership have been released.
Great Wolf Lodge Georgia will offer 500,000 square feet of entertainment space. The centerpiece of the resort will be a 93,000-square-foot indoor water park that will include a multi-level treehouse, tipping water bucket, high-thrill water slides, a lazy river, wave pool, several zero depth entry pools and kids water play areas.
The lodge will also include 456 rooms that will each accommodate at least five people. Rooms will include refrigerators, microwaves and coffee makers. Great Wolf Lodge will also offer kid-focused suites such as the Wolf Den and KidCabin, which will feature various themes and bunk beds.
Other entertainment options will include a ropes course, climbing attraction, miniature golf, bowling alley, spas, dining options and numerous shows and programs.
The lodge will also feature over 16,000 square feet of meeting and conference space with audio-visual technology and catering options.

Nathan Deal. “This project is a result of strong partnership between local and state leaders that will benefit the local community.”
