So we're we're really excited that everybody is going to -- shown some video right now of a -- a great wolf resort you have eleven properties nationwide everywhere is it mostly in the mid westerners -- East Coast midwest moving out west.
Or move out -- that's its east caused midway out.
-- we have one -- the Niagara Falls Canada as well.
And let me ask you did the big drug though is the water park right so so what is it is it just simply about a -- -- to describe to me the experience that people -- -- they take that happens well.
You know obviously that the water park is the sizzle that's what people see and when they -- we want to make sure that we have something for everyone so we've got the toddler slides and we have the thrill rides like are -- -- and everything in between the wave -- the lazy river the hot -- The want to make sure that the family.
Whatever their desire is in the water park they have there is something fair for everyone and we want -- have -- they can do together.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yes let me ask how the -- how it how you're performing because traded publicly and and you know a lot of companies had trouble during the downturn -- wondering if you guys did because.
In the recession people are still working still wanted to take the family on vacation I was curious if they turned.
To great wolf an -- They did we -- very fortunate people chose to spend their discretionary dollars with we're very high quality but we're also very convenient but.
Vacation we're close to home.
We're very value proposition you can come to -- you know two days one night stay.
And is a lot of activities include in the water park that are party -- stay.
And in the middle winner you know the idea -- that going to place we can be warm and to have fun in the waters of the you do in the summer.
There's a great draw that's exactly at -- and we -- weatherproof for all indoors you do not have to leave the resort if you don't want to and I think that is this really comforting to a lot of families.
So we try to be very easy decision for people and it -- what are the fundamentals as most -- -- guests I guess I was let's -- clients but she would say guests are within a three hour drive of the resort cracked patent.
And then what about expansion plans he let's talk about whether you are gonna make a push out west to some of the more outdoor oriented states where that -- is much about the weather.
Right and -- still place that is in grand mound Washington and so be between Portland and Seattle so.
Yeah they're very outdoor focus -- -- but we do -- the some big plans in Southern California that's announced plan even when we were public that.
Would love to see that -- -- but the idea that there are other places.
With major metropolitan markets that would like to service within that reality I -- an.
I was thinking have we talked before -- segment began about ten does the Ohio today and living Cleveland.
-- what would you say among your guests to -- the average stay and the average family -- -- the family of four raising grandma grandpa the whole gang.
What are some of the metrics if you're allowed to -- Hello that a -- but I mean traditionally it's a family of four you know we're we're kind of catering to the kids of that to the twelve -- -- to its body on the house.
Were perfect for for the family.
But we do see a lot of and their unions it's a great place for everyone to get together again just because the nature all under one -- people can kind of move around how many days usually average stay you know about two days -- -- do it when kids out of school you're busy so the weekends -- her bank and that pretty -- -- -- the number of days.
WAB a great weekend getaway how much of the family budget.
-- I realize from region to region the press gonna be different but roughly.
Yeah first first family of four to they have the wire parks included you stay so that's part of the value proposition I think that you don't you start looking at about 250 dollars a night and I'm not depending on when you come and then what else you do outside of -- The water -- And I would assume that the resort has the restaurants in the food all there if that's what you choose to do -- get because we don't like to get away for the weekend as rights plop down and not have to do exactly.
We've got all the food -- that you could possibly need for breakfast lunch and dinner.
You know snack bars we've got our our new.
We'll put down keeps.
We have a lot of fun things including our live action video game called magic -- coops can't stop lots of things for -- As to -- as the looking at this the family friendly -- with a five pound balls when I was a kid my grandparents live in Portland Maine and there was.

To be -- -- -- is what it was called is that the five -- -- that is -- so it's really easy her you know.
Dad really looks like a hero because he should be -- strikes.
But it's a lot of fun for the kids of all ages in the mammoth have a lot of fun and it's not a huge two -- time.
All right and this glow in the dark is it miniature golf yeah you guys come up with essar has around about not heard -- that.
It's fairly it's fairly new -- part of the attraction -- Industries on something that we've taken customize it so kind of feels like that north woods but the going dark this makes that a lot of fun.
