A new Great Wolf Lodge is expected to open in the city of Webster, according to recent city agenda documents.
The purchase and sale agreement between the city and Great Wolf Resorts was approved at the Nov. 16 Webster Economic Development Corporation special meeting. The WEDC purchased a 35.36-acre tract of land in November 2020 to accommodate the new attraction, according to agenda documents.
The property was purchased for $2 million, per agenda documents. The contract did not state when the construction would start or where the park would be located. Webster Economic Development Director Betsy Giusto declined to comment on the park and directed all questions to Great Wolf Resorts. Webster Mayor Donna Rogers was not available for comment.
Great Wolf Lodge has another location in Dallas in the Grapevine area that serves as an indoor water park and family resort. There are 19 other locations in the U.S. as well as one in Canada. The park includes multiple indoor waterslides alongside various dining options and a variety of hotel rooms to choose from.
“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,” said Jason Lasecki, vice president of corporate communications for Great Wolf Resorts, in an emailed statement. “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.”
