Great Wolf Lodge vs. Water Country USA in Williamsburg?Busch Gardens Williamsburg: Questions about our first trip to Williamsburg this summer.
From Jennifer SchwingHi all,

We're regulars at WDW, but decided to do Williamsburg this year. Here's my plan so far, please give advice. We're completely flexible as far as dates are concerned.
Aug 25-28, Country Inn and Suites, Williamsburg, with Bounce passes for me, DH and DS5. Planning on visiting BG, WC and Colonial Williamsburg.
Aug 28-30, Great Wolf Lodge and just enjoying that waterpark.
My main question - is GWL sufficiently better/different than Water Country to warrant a change of hotel for the last couple of days, or would we get better value by spending the whole week closer to BG and enjoying the week of admission to all three there?
Other questions, how is my timing as far as crowds, and how is the weather at the end of August?

From Roni HennesseyI have been to Busch Gardens many times and to Great Wolf Lodge (GWL) once. You can't compare the GWL to Water country because of the indoor vs. outdoor difference. Personally, one night at Great Wolf lodge was plenty. There is much more going on in the Williamsburg area than right around GWL.

From Jorge ArnoldsonGreat Wolf requires you to book a room there for you to use their waterpark.
