SPINNING BY A FAVORITE SPOT? If you're a human looking for happy times, "spinning by" might involve you making a quick jaunt to a delightful destination, all to find fun times for you and your family. But "spinning by" takes on a different meaning when a spider is involved, specifically a ginormous specimen that is creatively comprised of thousands of balloons. Such a wondrous specimen, a colossal creature that is far more cute than spooky, is now on picture-worthy display at Great Wolf Lodge Southern California.
A REAL-LIFE SPIDER? This isn't an actual enormous insect, the sort of eight-legged fellow that might be small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but rather a huge and handsome balloon-made figure that stretches above the lobby at the Garden Grove hotel. And we weren't spinning tales when we said he is made of "thousands of balloons"; this awesome arachnid includes 8,165 air-filled orbs. He's free to see, if you're in the Anaheim/Garden Grove area, for he is right there, inside the entrance, ready to give arriving guests a bit of spider-tastic sweetness.
OTHER HALLOWEEN HAPPENINGS... are casting a wondrous web around the pool-laden family hotel through the end of October 2021. There's a Trick-or-Treat Trail to explore, a Monster Bash dance party, and a costume contest (do check dates and times regarding any special holiday events before booking your reservation). But before you scurry away to investigate a late-October stay at this fam-fun inn, check it out: The leggy lobby spider not only boasts thousands of balloons, and an adorable, fang-fantastic face, but it spans some 110 feet. Call it the very biggest spider you, or anyone, may ever encounter, which is just way, way cool.
