Six Flags Great Escape Lodge & Indoor Waterpark combines a resort and waterpark into a unique hybrid that allows for year-round visitation, regardless of the weather outside. The hotel itself has 200 rooms, plenty of amenities, and a variety of dining and recreation choices. The water park comprises 38,000 square feet, is heated to a comfy 80 degrees, and features signature areas like Tak-it-Eesi-Creek, Lott-A-Watta-Bay, and Tip-A-Kanu-Beach, along with simulated surfing in wave pools, and spas specifically catering to adult guests looking for more intense relaxation.
The Glacier Run and Snow Shoe Falls are side-by-side tubular water slides that glide riders through twists, turns and a 41-foot drop. Avalanche is a four-rider raft experience that rocks and rolls visitors through a simulated whitewater raft adventure. Soakum Spring is a warm-water spa designed specifically for adults to leave their troubles behind for a while.
Best time to visit
The lodge is open year-round, but portions of spring are less hectic, since the summer rush brings a high-capacity crowd.
