Great Wolf Lodge PJ Party Review

When we went to Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls, Monkey had the opportunity to take part in the Great Wolf Lodge PJ Party.  It was the perfect way to end off a fantastic day playing in the waterpark and at the lodge.  He had a blast and I was able to get a little kids free time to take a breather after playing in the water park all day with the kids.  The Great Wolf Lodge PJ Party is available for children between the ages of 4-12 years old.  Here are the perks of the PJ party and why we would take part again next time we go to Great Wolf Lodge.

Great Wolf Lodge PJ Party Review

No Adults Allowed

It’s not very often an adult gets told that they are not allowed to go somewhere. The Great Wolf Lodge PJ Party is a no adults allowed zone.  Parents can use this time to grab dinner, enjoy an adult beverage, or head to the waterpark to enjoy the water slides without having to keep tabs on the kids.  The party is from 7-9:30 PM, so you get 2.5 hours of time to explore kid free.

Get into those PJs

What kid doesn’t love wearing their pajamas?  At the Great Wolf Lodge pajama party kids can choose to wear their pajamas or regular clothes. It’s a ton of fun for the kids to pick out pajamas to wear to a party.

Plenty of Activities

The kids get to do lots of fun activities while at the PJ Party. While at the party Monkey was able to decorate a fun camp hat, do face painting, have a snack, and even color a pillowcase. The staff to kid ratio was 1:6 so I felt completely safe leaving our little one there.

Story Time

The PJ party takes place in the Cub Club, but the kids do come up as a group and enjoy the ever popular story time in the front row.  No need to worry about them missing any of the fun.

Monkey did get tired before the end of the PJ Party (he was only 4 at the time) so the gave me a call on my cell phone to come and pick him up a little early, which was completely okay because it was past his bedtime. However, he had a fun time and was able to bring his pillowcase with him to color.  I also appreciated the security measures they take for sign in and pick up with a photo being taken of the parents and children so that it is easy to make a “match” at the the end of the party.  There is an additional cost to the PJ Party, however for the fee you get a 2.5 break from the kids while they get to do some awesome activities.

If you’re heading go Great Wolf Lodge, the PJ party is definitely something to look into, but remember that spots are limited so call ahead of time to reserve your spot.  There is an additional charge to take part in the Great Wolf Lodge PJ Party.  The kids have a ton of fun and there is plenty for the adults to do while the kids are at the PJ Party.  Have any questions about the PJ party, let me know in the comments and I will do my best to answer them.

    Fantastic and very unusual to have 2.5 hours of kid-free time, I think this must be a great place to be confident enough to offer something like this.

  3. Aww! That looks like such a fun time for the little ones – and a good chance for the adults to have some time alone! Wonderful idea 🙂

  4. I don’t know how we missed out on participating in the sleepover when we stayed at GWL!?!! We will definitely sign up for it if we ever stay there again (if, haha, more like when).

  5. Wow, this looks like so much fun for my kids!! They have been wanting to go to Great Wolf Lodge for so long and they would love this. Great review!
