News Leader 9 gets sneak peek at huge Great Wolf Lodge Resort in LaGrange

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – On Thursday, we got a peek inside a new family resort under construction in LaGrange during a media day event.

A 456-suite Great Wolf Lodge will feature an incredible array of attractions including a 93,000-square foot water park complete with thrilling waterslides.

The resort will have many "firsts" for the Great Wolf brand including new services and amenities, never-before-seen waterslides and a new food hall dining concept.

"Again, we are very excited to make Georgia the home of our first next-generation Great Wolf Lodge. This would not be possible without the wonderful partnership and great collaboration we have with Mayor Thornton and the city of Lagrange."

The $147 million resort is expected to open in May of 2018.

The facility is located in south Lagrange right off exit 13 near Whitesville road and highway 219.
