The Great Wolf Lodge is slated to open in the Webster area at Flyway development center south of NASA Bypass that which is set to feature 120 acres of top-of-the-line retailers, sports-centered venues, entertainment, and a boardwalk.
The Great Wolf Lodge, which has carved out a 29-acre plot of land at Flyway, will be the second of its kind in Texas, with one opened in Grapevine back in 2008. Billing itself as a major tourist attraction, the venue is set to create at least 500 jobs.
Per the contract, the family resort-style water park will feature restaurants, retailers, as well as “no less than 400,000 square feet of combined lodging and entertainment space…indoor water park of at least 75,000 square feet in size” in addition to a 10,000-square-foot convention center or larger.
“The advent of Great Wolf Lodge represents one of the most monumental accomplishments in the city’s history, as there will be only one Great Wolf Lodge within the entire Houston Metropolitan Statistical Area — and the city is thrilled that Webster will accommodate the nation’s premier indoor waterpark resort hotel and conference center,” the City of Webster said in a statement on Facebook.
The Great Wolf Lodge has just broken ground. The contract requires for its completion to be within three years of beginning construction. Stay tuned for more details!
“We’re always looking for opportunities to introduce the Great Wolf Lodge resort experience to new audiences, and we are excited about the prospect of bringing one of our family-friendly indoor water park resorts to southeastern Texas,” Great Wolf Resorts said to KPRC 2. “We anticipate a resort like the one we are proposing for Webster would help stimulate the economy and generate hundreds of local jobs. We are extremely appreciative of the support from the City of Webster and Harris County for this endeavor, and look forward to the next stages for this project.”
