Great Wolf makes Minnesota purchase

Great Wolf Resorts has purchased a hotel and waterpark owned by the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn. and will convert the properties into a Great Wolf resort by next year.

Great Wolf Lodge Minnesota, Great Wolf’s 15th waterpark resort, is expected to open late in 2018 according to media reports.

Great Wolf, owned by Centerbridge Partners of New York, reportedly paid $39.1 million for the Minnesota complex, according to Minnesota-based Finance & Commerce, a business publication.
