Grapevine’s Great Wolf Lodge water park resort could get a $17 million makeover.
Planning documents submitted to the state for the resort describe renovations to public areas and additions that include a grand staircase, arcade relocation, restaurant expansion and an outdoor bar.
The filing lists the estimated cost as $17 million and gives a start date of May 1, 2023 and a completion date of July 31, 2024. Architectural Design Consultants Inc. of Lake Delton, Wis., is listed as the design firm.
“We are currently exploring possible renovations to the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, and to gain insights required as part of the planning and evaluation process, we needed to complete this filing with the state,” Great Wolf Lodge spokesperson Jason Lasecki said in a statement.
“While we are excited about the possibilities of bringing some new experiences to families visiting Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, we are still in the planning stage and it would be premature to comment on what any potential renovations could entail.”
Great Wolf Lodge opened in Grapevine in 2007. It is part of a nationwide chain of water park resorts owned and operated by Chicago-based Great Wolf Resorts Inc.
The company also recently broke ground on a location in Webster in the Houston area with 532 rooms, a 95,000-square-foot water park and 58,000-square-foot Great Wolf Adventure Park, according to its website. That resort is expected to open in 2024.
The renovation would be yet another investment in family entertainment in Dallas-Fort Worth, following the announcements of Frisco’s future Universal children’s theme park and the nation’s second Peppa Pig Theme Park in North Richland Hills.
