Great Wolf offers a solid concept that is steadily becoming a household name in several major areas around the U.S.. The biggest issue facing the company is its relatively large amount of debt, but there is none due until mid-2011 and they have proven that they can continue to pay it off while pushing back maturities if needed. Great Wolf is still growing with a recently announced licensing deal in Garden Grove, CA and at least two more to be announced soon. These licensing deals are a great way for the company to continue expansion, adding to EBITDA, and at the same time not incurring significant costs or piling on more debt. Look for this one to be a home run over the next few years.

Nano technology along with the introduction of new styles & most of all, beating the FAD rap. Crox will survive without a doubt. The best shoe I ever put on my feet.

I feel that if this company continues to expand in key markets and can keep their expenses in check their revenue stream will grow.

It will take awhile for the concept of this company to catch on. They will not show much profit for some time as they are putting everything they have in to capital expenditures. I think that people may find this an alternative to the long drive/flight to Florida for swimming in the winter. Look for Disney to buy them out!

Company is improving REVPAR and gradually strengthening it's position. Each new location opened should add approximately $1.00 per share in value.

Great Wolf Resorts is a fully integrated resort company, involved in owning, operating and developing family resorts that provides a high quality vacation and entertainment, through its indoor waterparks, at affordable prices. Its resorts are branded under Great Wolf Lodge and Blue Harbor Resort names, with each one featuring a combination of restaurants, ice cream shop, confectionery, full-service spa, game arcade, gift shop and meeting space. Currently it owns nine resorts, which are spread all over US, with two resorts being under construction.

Only a few water parks are opening in 2007 and Great Wolf with a first mover advantage is expected to garner the increasing demand for family oriented leisure activities. The growing portfolio of hotels has made its business model justifiable, by enabling management to pursue high profile locations. The agreement with MagiQuest, a live-action adventure game at the resort, gives the company exclusive use of the popular family oriented high tech and high concept entertainment. This kind of value added amenity couldn’t be replicated by its competing waterparks.

The company has recently opened up a new resort at Manson, Ohio, which has a conference facility. The revenue flow from this conference facility will be seen in second half of 2007. Its forthcoming resorts, one in Grand Mound in Washington, which is likely to open in early 2008 and the other Grapevine at Texas, opening in late 2007, will provide the company with adequate opportunities to nurture.

Strategically moving, the company plans to add more food and beverage offerings in its new resorts to capture a larger share of revenue from them. Increasing brand awareness and having current pipeline of projects in high barrier markets is expected to a serve as a positive catalyst for this stock

Stock beaten down after some early mistakes by management. I think they have learned. They have a good controlled growth strategy. They are first to market with a good concept.
