Great Wolf Resorts to Expand Into Illinois

Great Wolf Resorts, the Madison-based indoor waterpark company, has  purchased KeyLime Cove, an indoor waterpark resort located in Gurnee, south of the Wisconsin border.

KeyLime Cove will be Great Wolf's 17th location; it closed in late April and will open under its new identity in mid-2018, spokesman Jason Lasecki said.

Terms of the deal have not  been released.

A February report in the suburban Chicago newspaper Daily Herald said the Gurnee Village Board trustees approved financial incentives of up to $18 million for the project.
