Great Wolf Lodge is splashing into the New Year with a special offer to help make 13 kids’ birthdays extra special. Great Wolf Resorts, Inc.®, America’s largest family of indoor waterpark resorts, has announced the Great Wolf Lodge Lucky 13 sweepstakes, inviting guests with children turning 13 in 2013 to enter for a chance to win a one night’s stay at a Great Wolf Lodge resort for only $20.13.

Great Wolf Resorts wants 2013 to be a lucky year. And, as a premier family-focused destination, what better way than to focus on the resorts’ young guests? Turning 13 is a significant number for kids; it marks the age when they “officially” become a teenager. For kids who are excited to turn 13 and for parents who need a little luck while planning a winter family getaway, the Great Wolf Lodge Lucky 13 sweepstakes is just the trick!

Families that have a child celebrating their 13th birthday in 2013, are invited to enter on Sunday, January 13, 2013 from 12:01 a.m. Central Time until 11:59 p.m. Central Time that night. To enter, eligible guests can send an email to with the subject line “Lucky 13” and the following information in the body of the email: (1) name of parent or guardian submitting the entry; (2) address of entrant; (3) name of the entrant’s child who is turning 13 in 2013; and (4) birth date of entrant’s child who is turning 13 in 2013. 13 lucky winners will be randomly selected to receive a single night’s stay at the Great Wolf Lodge resort nearest them for just $20.13. This very lucky reservation rate is more than 90% off of the average cost of a stay in a Family Suite at Great Wolf Lodge.

“We are excited to kick off the New Year with this unique promotion,” said Tim Black, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Great Wolf Lodge. “As a parent, I know turning 13 is a significant milestone.  Lucky 13 is our way of celebrating 2013, and giving families an opportunity to take a winter break together to the Great Wolf Lodge resort nearest them.”

For those families who do not have a child turning 13 this year, all luck is not lost. Families can save up to 20% off a multi-night stay at their favorite Great Wolf Lodge by entering the promotion code EARLY when booking a reservation by January 18. To keep their lucky streak going, they can also sign up for the Great Wolf Lodge E-pack and receive news about limited time promotions and deals all year long
