Wolf Passes were given complimentary to my family. All opinions are my own.

My family and I recently made a trip down to Arizona to visit Great Wolf Lodge. This was our second visit to this location.

Grizzly Bear Suite Tour

Before we get to the wolf pass, I want to give you a quick tour of our amazing Grizzly Bear Suite. We loved this room because it had so much space!

As you enter the Suite, there is plenty of storage space.

We kept all of our shoes and swimming gear in this area so we could grab it quickly as we went out the door.

Bathroom 1 is right inside the entrance and has a tub and shower combination.

Located just outside the bathroom is a sink. Having the sink outside the bathroom definitely which helps when you have a lot of guests staying in your room.

Walking a little bit further into the room, you will see a large countertop with another sink and a mini-fridge.

We had groceries delivered to us during our stay so the mini fridge came in handy for my hungry boys.

Straight back from the entrance is the living room. This room had a large sectional couch that can pull out into a full size bed.

Great Wolf Lodge Wolf Pass

Now let’s get to the fun stuff. Great Wolf Lodge has three types of passes that you can purchase. The Pup Pass, Paw Pass, and the Wolf Pass.

What is included in a Wolf Pass at Great Wolf Lodge

Each of these passes vary by location, so make sure you do your research to get the pass that is right for you and your family.

We have found that for us, the Wolf pass gives us the best bang for our buck. Our stay lasted four nights and the Wolf Pass gave us plenty of things to do.

What is included with a Wolf Pass

Now that you know the difference between the three passes available for purchase, let’s go in depth with what is included with a Wolf Pass at Great Wolf Lodge.

Entrance to MagiQuest included with a Wolf Pass at Great Wolf Lodge


The first activity included with a Wolf Pass is MagiQuest. With the Wolf Pass, you get to choose a magic wand as well as a wand topper.

You will also get a booklet with instructions on how to complete different quests throughout the lodge.

This was one of My 11 year old and 6 year old’s favorite things we did on our visit.

They worked on the challenges for a few minutes each day and were able to complete it by the time our stay was over. Individual Price: Game $13.99 + Wand $17.99.

Ropes Course

Included with the Wolf Pass, is one climb on Howler’s Peak Ropes Course.

You will be secured to ropes that hang from overhead and will go through two levels of challenges.

Kids between 45″ – 47″ are allowed to climb, but must be accompanied by an adult.

My youngest was just under 48” so he fit into those parameters and was required to have an adult with him on the course.

Although his Dad and I probably needed more assistance than he did.

We ended up having so much fun on the ropes course, that we purchased the unlimited pass for $19.99 per person.

This allowed my boys to climb as many times as they wanted for the entire duration of our stay, and boy did they take advantage of that. Individual Price:$14.99.

Moonstone Mine

I was pretty excited to take a trip through Moonstone Mine at Great Wolf Lodge in Arizona.

When we visited the location in Washington, I wanted to experience, but we didn’t get the chance.

With our Wolf Passes, we were to go make our way through the maze.

This is a maze of mirrors with clues throughout to help you complete it.

I have to admit that it could be a little disorienting inside the maze, but it was fun to work as a family to find a way out! Individual Price: $19.99.

Great Wolf Lodge Candy Company

When you purchase a Wolf Pass, you also get to make a trip to the Great Wolf Candy Company.

You will be able to fill a 12 ounce cup with your choice of candy.

With restrictions right now, only one family is allowed in the store at a time, and a Great Wolf Lodge employee will fill the candy cup for you.

This was definitely a dream come true for my kids. Individual Price: Unknown (I estimate around $5).

Climbing Wall

The Rustic Ridge Climbing Wall is another activity included when you purchase a Wolf Pass.

You will wear the same harnesses used for the ropes course, but you get to see how high you can climb on the wall with a giant paw print.

Rustic Ridge is a 33 foot climbing challenge and was fun for everyone. My 6-year old and my husband ( I won’t mention his age 😉) both made it to the top! Individual Price: $7.99 per climb.

Northern Lights Arcade

When you buy a Wolf Pass, you will get a game card (worth $5) that will allow you to play games in the Northern Lights Arcade.

When you pick up your card, you have the option to add more points to it, but we decided not to.

Game Cards called Paw Points to be used at the arcade at Great Wolf Lodge

After playing you can trade your tickets in for prizes like small toys and candy. Individual Price: $5.00.

My kids loved this because, not only do they love ice cream, but they had full ability to be creative with their flavor combinations.

My 10-year-old chose Pineapple Mango ice cream topped with Gummy Bears.

Ten Paw Alley

One game of bowling at Ten Paw Alley is included with a Wolf Pass.

We actually had a lot of fun doing this and no special shoes are required, which was an added bonus.

Mini Golf

If you’re a fan of mini golf, you’re in luck! You can use your Wolf Pass to redeem one round of mini golf during at Howl in One Mini Golf.

I would say that this golf course is suited more for younger kids, but my older boys still had a great time! Individual price: $7.99 + tax.

Is a Wolf Pass worth it?

To determine if a Wolf Pass is worth it for you, you need to decide if your kids will enjoy each activity.

Below I will show you the cost break down. For my family, the Wolf Pass has been worth it every time.

Individual Attraction Prices

  • MagiQuest Game $13.99 + tax
  • MagiQuest Wand & Standard Topper $17.99 + tax
  • Ropes Course $14.99 per person
  • Moonstone Mine $19.99
  • Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Scoop $5.29
  • Great Wolf Candy Company $5 (my estimate, actual price unknown)
  • Climbing Wall $7.99 per climb
  • Arcade $5

Total Individual Cost = $90.24 + tax

If you consider the cost of a Wolf Pass ($69.99) compared to the cost of these attractions individually, it is a savings of over $20.00. To me, it is totally worth it!
