Great Wolf Lodge Wish Makes a Splash

Quinn loves adventure and water slides. He said one of the coolest things he’s ever done was swim in a big hotel pool, and he had no idea just how cool things were going to get with his dream coming true. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, made a splash sending his family to Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, Texas.

Quinn spent most of his time at the resort’s massive indoor water park, and had a blast with all the wet zones and thrilling slides. He also experienced adventure at MagicQuest, a live-action role-playing game where he battled dragons, found magic treasure, and was knighted for his success. Other excitement happened at the arcade – Quinn hit the jackpot winning two thousand prize tickets. After fun-filled days, his family enjoyed staying in the luxurious Grizzly Bear Suite. “I loved all of my wish!” said Quinn.

He’s struggled with Chiari malformation, a condition where brain tissue extends into the spinal canal. Quinn suffered with migraines, vomiting, dizziness and numbness, and even after surgery, still has headaches. “Quinn’s wish gave him time away to experience his own special adventures with his family,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.

Kids Wish Network would like to thank Great Wolf Lodge (Grapevine, Texas) for making Quinn’s wish so memorable.
