Anyone planning air travel right now knows these are trying times. After all, more than 1,500 flights were canceled in the U.S. last weekend — and another 800 flights were canceled on Monday.
The problem families face is determining what they can do in the future for a vacation if their flight is canceled at the last minute over the long 4th of July weekend.
Fortunately, Great Wolf Lodge has a plan to help some of those families.
“Great Wolf Lodge knows how important a summer getaway is in helping families strengthen their pack, and unfortunately many family travel plans this summer are being condensed or disrupted due to flight cancellations,” Great Wolf Lodge wrote in a statement. “Great Wolf Lodge has long-served as a close, easy-to-drive-to destination for families seeking a hassle-free and fun-filled getaway with its expansive indoor water park, character-rich entertainment, and family-friendly attractions. Now, the family resort is offering a reprieve for families whose planned July 4th holiday weekend getaways are disrupted due to a flight cancellation.”
How The Deal Will Work
“Any family traveling by air this holiday weekend that experiences a flight cancellation, for any reason, is encouraged to capture a screen grab showing their flight cancellation notice and share it with Great Wolf Lodge via its Twitter account, tagging @greatwolflodge and using #GWLRescue,” Great Wolf Lodge explains. “Great Wolf Lodge will then randomly select 100 families who tweet their flight cancellation notifications using #GWLRescue and help them reclaim some of their precious summer family time together lost due to the canceled flight.”
Here’s the cool part: Each of those families will then receive a complimentary one-night stay, valid at any of the 18 Great Wolf Lodge resorts across the U.S., so “they can recoup that carefree time playing and enjoying quality time together as a family.”
The Fine Print
It’s important to note that Great Wolf Lodge’s offer is a sweepstakes, so it’s important to note the rules.
For a family to participate, their canceled flight must have been scheduled to depart between 12:01 a.m. on Friday, July 1, and 11:59 p.m. on July 4, 2022. Also, they must submit proof of their flight’s cancellation to Great Wolf Lodge via Twitter using #GWLRescue before 5 p.m. Central Standard Time on Tuesday, July 5, 2022.
Great Wolf Lodge will then notify the 100 sweepstakes winners they have been awarded a one-night stay by Thursday, July 7, 2022.
Finally, those complimentary stays will be valid August 15–November 18, 2022.
