Great place to wear out the kidsFlag review
I have two special needs kids which are always full of attention but short attention span. We went to great wolf lodge and played the Magi Quest. By the end of the day both kids fall asleep on us. They kept moving all day long. The only thing I would change is the compass quest has some "timed" quest with younger kids with short legs it is hard for them to get all way from point a to point b. It really kept their attention for two whole days though.
Tips for Families
If you live close by Great Wolf lodge it is a lot easier to do it in different parts. For example we went and done the magi quest and a tiny bit of the arcade. Then just came home and plan on going back and staying/doing the swimming part. If you want to do everything and actually complete everything to the end your going need to visit more then once. Even with our help it took my kids two days to complete magi quest and compass quest. If you live close enough save your money and just go for a visit then a stay later. Also save your money and either bring your own food or eat at the fast food places right down the street. The on site restaurant is cute but costly and was almost always a line when we was there just to get in.

My Kid's Review
Both kids loved it. My 6 year old had a little trouble with all the walking back and forth with the magi quest. She wore out on us but my son made many new friends with other kids and had a blast. Its big enough not to be too crowded but small enough he could run back and forth and we still could keep track of him.
