The place is pretty impressive when you pull up--we had no idea it would be as big as it was, and there were a lot more people there than we expected around 2:00 on a Thursday afternoon. Here's Nate (bottom left) checking out the "little kids" area. In true Nate form, he waited until the second day, about an hour or so before we left, to truly embrace the GWL.
While Gil and the boys went on the quest with their magic wand, Cheryl and I relaxed in the main lobby.
Ben and Gil had about a hundred races down this pair of slides plus another one where they had to go head-first. Gil wanted me to point out that it appears he won this particular race.
Taking a break from the "magiton" (Nate-speak for "magic wand"). There were several treasure chests and pictures on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors that you could wave the wand in front of to complete a quest. We didn't have the book (you're supposed to do them in a certain order), but it was still fun.
All in all, pretty cool place and I'd recommend checking it out. We only stayed one night but they let you use the water park facilities until 8pm the next day if you want. We stuck around until a little after lunch, hit the Concord Mills about a mile away, and headed home. Good times!
