COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- A new indoor water park is opening in Colorado Springs this weekend. The Great Wolf Lodge is the first hotel in Colorado to feature an indoor water park.

The idea is to provide families with an amazing water park experience, every month of the year, no matter what the weather is outside.

In addition to a water park, the resort also features dining and other activities.

The water park has something for all ages and experience levels. The largest ride is the Howlin' Tornado, which is a six-story, four-person raft water slide.

The water park is only open to overnight hotel guests. However, guests can obtain additional passes for a daily fee.

All other resort amenities, including the restaurants, are open to the public.

Great Wolf Lodge started in Wisconsin Dells, Wis., in 1997. This is the resort chain's 14th location.
