What’s Included in the Paw Pass at Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls?

Is the Paw Pass really Worth it?

In my opinion, I think the Paw Pass holds alot of  VALUE as it offers activities to fill the time when you are tired of the Waterpark. For us, my daughter showed interest in the Magiquest from the moment we walked to our room and she saw others opening the treasure chests… so I was automatically set to spend money on the wand. We also wanted to let her try bowling for the first time and she normally gets a souvenir so for us it just made financial sense. The pass has alot of VALUE but it really just depends on what activities you plan to do if its worth it for you!

What is the Best Age to get the Paw Pass For?

Its Interesting that the Great Wolf Lodge Website says they feel the Paw Pass is best for Children over 5 years old and Teens, while it is good for them I actually think its more geared to kids aged 3-8 years old and I’ll explain why.

Firstly the stuffed animal, bowling which is 5 pin, wolf ears and colour your own items in cub club are definetly geared towards younger kids as I cant see many kids over age 8 being super excited by these activities. While Kids aged 3-8 are definetly very excited by these activities plus the others as my three year old was so excited for Bowling for the first time but also LOVED the Magic Quest. Learn more about our MagiQuest Experience.

For Kids older then 8 I think they would enjoy the MagiQuest best and you are better to spend your money on a Magiquest Wand/Quest and maybe some fancy toppers for the wand as they will get the most out of this. While they will enjoy bowling and mini golf you can play a round without the Paw Pass for $7.99/person.
