Great Wolf Lodge - Water Park

Reviewed By rizzo0904 - NH

Just got back from a 2 night stay. I used a 48 hour discount sale code near Black Friday and reserved a standard room for $600 for the two night stay. Our room was in the main section, overlooking the lobby. It's LOUD. We had to turn on the fan portion of the heat in order to drown out the lobby noise. They have events planned as late as 10pm, right outside your window.

Check in was fairly quick and easy. No complaints there.

Elevators are very slow...we used the stairs instead.

We had our 7 and 9 year old boys with us. Their favorite part, hands down, was MagiQuest. We had them share one wand and the game cost a total of $30. They achieved Master Magi status and then stuck around to help other kids slay the dragon. They never asked to use the arcade, miniature golf, ropes course, etc. They just wanted to play Magi Quest and swim, which was good for us since they charge for EVERYTHING.

The pool areas were clean with many lifeguards on duty. Get there early to secure a table. The water park area was smaller than I expected, but the kids had fun.

We brought our own food for breakfast and lunch. We went out to dinner. So we never tried any of the dining on site. A Taste of Vietnam was incredible. Il Forno was not.

Overall, the kids had a blast, but I have no desire to ever return. One night would have been enough.

Doyle Community Park

Meander along trails that pass through woodlands, meadows, and gardens, all part of an elegant former estate that is also home to the LEED-certified Doyle Center.

Wouldn't have thought you could find such nice woods right along route 2 in Leominster. Ran 2.5 miles mixing it up on single-track, mowed grass trail, and handicapped accessible stone. Very enjoyable.

Wachusett Brewing Company

Wachusett Brewing Company was founded in 1994 by 3 Massachusetts college buddies who developed a significant appreciation for craft beer during their adventures of biking, canoeing and hiking around New England. Armed with a “we can do this” attitude, the three cast off from their careers in engineering and biology to pursue their passion to make great beer. Today, Wachusett has grown to become one of the largest breweries in Northeast with a diverse and award-winning portfolio of ales and lagers that are still made with the same “we can do this” attitude that started the brewery over 20 years ago. Come visit us at The Brew Yard located at our brewery in Westminster MA to learn more about our story and sample our wide variety of beers. We hope to see you soon!

We love the new brew yard and can’t wait to see it in the summer. They have also really stepped up the beers. Loving the Wally, Wally Juice and Goat. We also tried the pretzel and it’s one of the best I’ve had and supersized....MoreThanks for the great review Kendra! We are so happy you were able to stop by. See you soon...

For my first time snowboarding, I was very disappointed in the teaching instructors.. On several occasions on the bunny trail when going down the hill, the instructors would cut me off. What seemed like an accident the first time, happened several times to my sister and I. When I specifically asked if we weren’t allowed to be on this hill (because why else would someone intentionally cut me, a beginner, off?!) I was told if I couldn’t control my board going around them that I should hire someone to train me. After purchasing my ticket I did not feel that I needed to pay additional when I could practice by myself. After this disappointing experience, Aaron at Customer Service went above and beyond to make sure my family was satisfied before we left. I wish the instructors didn’t make the experience so bad but we can’t thank Aaron enough for trying to make up for this experience! Thanks AARON!

Fitchburg Art Museum

Reviewed By Distance09 - Charlotte, North Carolina

The museum is small and has excellent permanent and temporary displays. I normally do not find Egyptian displays hold my interest. I spent about an hour and will go back. It is so well done. The African gallery is also very interesting and well done. There was a temporary photography exhibit on the first floor that was hot and cold for me but that is just a matter of likes. Overall this is one of the finest museums I have visited. Go and enjoy. Ask about Thurston.

This is an excellent escape room from start to finish. We followed the assistant down the hall to a beautifully decorated waiting area.

Coggshall Park

Reviewed By Eileen S - Fitchburg, Massachusetts

I have been to Coggshall Park on many different occasions with various groups of people, from youngsters in small groups and school groups, to adults of all ages. It is an enjoyable place for all. There is a walkway surrounding Mirror Lake which is an easy walk through the woods and over the dam. A lot of the walkway is paved, so even people with limited mobility can take advantage of around half. Swans and geese are swimming in the water and can be observed going about their daily lives, as well as turtles climbing on to rocks. Other other pond creatures can be observed from time to time. There is a playground for the younger kids, and tables throughout the park to enjoy picnics, and benches by the lake's walkways to sit and relax. Big attractions are the picturesque gazebo and the Stone House, which can be rented very affordably for various events. No matter who you go with, by yourself, with a couple, or with a big group, you will feel relaxed and rejuvenated. And as a bonus, the entrance and parking are free.

Settlers Crossing Golf Course

Reviewed By mjmNJ - Nashua, New Hampshire

A very low key place for a relaxed round of 9 holes. A family owned course with a small pro store and bar. You can get a round in for $18 and it's just delightful. No rush, no course marshals, no crazy fanatical golfer. Just a great place to practice your game and enjoy a beer.

Curious Escape Rooms

Curious Escape Room is the first live action escape room in Central MA. Located in downtown Fitchburg, get shrunk and enter THE DOLLHOUSE or go back in time to 1999 and find a movie at THE VIDEO STORE. You and your team enter the room. Around the room there are locks, combos and clues hidden around. Like a scavenger hunt, together, solve a series of puzzles to complete your mission. You have 60 minutes.

Reviewed By surfinginflorida - Boston, Massachusetts

We played both of the rooms and they were both fun (our team was split on which was the favorite!) The hosts are super accommodating -- it is obvious they love their business. The ideas and sets were fun -- they made very unique puzzles out of common items.
