Wiley the Wolf is a young gray wolf, and the main mascot of Great Wolf Lodge. His birthday is on February 5th and he is 10 years old. He was first introduced around late 2001 as a member of The Cub Buddies. He is now a member of The Great Wolf Kids. Wiley is also Violet the Wolf's older brother.

Physical Description

Original Wiley Design

Originally when he was introduced in 2001, Wiley was a dark brown wolf with a black stripe down his back. He also had yellow eyes and much pointer ears. Wiley had a blue shirt with a "W" on the front and his full name on the back, a green cap, a pair of striped shorts, and dark green sneakers. He was much larger than the current, smaller Wiley. He was often paired with Biko the Bear.

Updated Wiley Design

In 2009, Wiley was redesigned to be more appealing and kid-friendly looking. He has lighter gray fur and a pale gray face marking. While he initially wore a park ranger inspired outfit as a way to promote Project Green Wolf, he has sported a red shirt and khaki shorts in recent years. Wiley's eyes also became green to match.

The 2019 costume is much slimmer, but shares most of its similarities with the 2009 one. Wiley's head is rounder and smoother, lacking the tufts of fur on his forehead.

The Great Wolf Pack

Wiley is set to appear in the upcoming movie The Great Wolf Pack: A Call to Adventure. He has been redesigned to a much more cartoonish, 2D style. In the movie he is voiced by Brandon James Winckler.


Wiley is a natural leader, and it was he who suggested to Tooth & Nail the idea of building a waterpark for his fellow Great Wolf Kids to play in. He is kind but also very adventurous, sometimes to a fault. Despite this, it is Wiley's goal to be a friend to all who wish to explore. He is also outgoing, hopeful, inspirational, and courageous. Wiley, like most wolves, loves to howl. In addition to this, he is also a talented dancer. He also learns how to take care of the environment too!

In The Great Wolf Pack: A Call to Adventure, Wiley has always considered himself a “lone wolf” before meeting the rest of the pack and discovering the value of friendships. His favorite activities involve going out into nature and tackling adventures. Wiley is fearless with a big heart. He sometimes makes mistakes along his way, but shows a willingness to learn new things.
