The new offer comes a day after K-9 Acquisition, an affiliate of Apollo Global Management LLC, raised its offer to $7 a share. K-9 had previously agreed to pay $6.75 a share for the Madison-based company, which operates 11 water park resorts in the United States and Canada, including one in Wisconsin Dells.

Apollo and KSL have each been submitting bids since Great Wolf went up for bid.
