The $300 million resort will be on 13-acres adjacent to Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, Connecticut. 

Turner Construction Company is pleased to announce that it has begun work on a 549-room Great Wolf Lodge resort in Mashantucket, Connecticut.  The resort will be located on 13-acres adjacent to the Foxwoods Resort Casino.

The Connecticut Great Wolf Lodge will be a year-round family resort destination filled with attractions and amenities for all ages. The resort will feature an expansive 91,000-square-foot indoor waterpark, a 61,000-square-foot family entertainment center, 7,500 square feet of flexible conference space, several dining options, and family-friendly suites some with multiple bedrooms for large families or multi-generational groups.

At the peak of construction, 400 trade workers will be on site and the $300 million project will create more than 500 full and part-time jobs once open. In addition to driving economic growth, the resort will be built with environmental features including energy and water conservation measures such as energy-saving LED lighting and special water filters to reduce consumption.

Chad McCullough, Vice President and General Manager of Turner Construction Company said, “This groundbreaking marks the start of 1.1 million hours of work to complete construction of the resort. Ultimately, this work will result in a wonderful destination for families.” Chad continued, “We thank Great Wolf Lodge for inviting us to be part of the team that will make this resort a reality. It is great that people from the community will be part of the construction of a project that will be such a wonderful new family resort for the community and region.”

The indoor water park resort is expected to open in 2025.
