Fake Wolf Lodge
Day 1 of our vacation.
We're headed to Canada, but tonight we're in Lake George, NY, home of Six Flags Great Escape Lodge and Indoor Waterpark--or as we like to call it, Fake Wolf Lodge.
It's pretty much an exact replica of Great Wolf Lodge, down to the faux-rustic lodge theme. It's only half the size, so there are fewer slides and no wave pool--but they do have a surfing ride. We're not complaining, but we all agree they ripped off the concept and we're siding with Great Wolf Lodge if there's ever a lawsuit.
We didn't get here until after 5pm, so after three hours of waterpark followed by showering and dressing, we headed out for dinner at 10pm, conveniently forgetting that not everything in the world is open 24 hours a day.
We ended up going through the Wendy's drive-thru--the only available option.
We're all lying in bed watching "Despicable Me" on pay-per-view; Jen is pretty much asleep, the boys will probably be up until 3am, and I'm thinking I could go for another Frosty on the way out of town tomorrow.
Ethan says he gives Day 1 "one thumb up." Tough crowd.
