BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- What's up for the weekend? A black-tie gala is happening and a new water park is opening, and more.
There is a new indoor water park opening up in New England called the Great Wolf Lodge. It's out in Fitchburg and is 68,000 square feet. The grand opening is Friday and it's ready for visitors this weekend. The park featured playgrounds, mini golf, a ropes course, bowling, arcade, a spa, and more. However, there's a catch. You have to stay at the lodge to get into the park.
