Located in Muskegon, Michigan,Michigan’s Adventure features 2 fun parks in one. Admission allows access to the the amusement park of Michigan’s Adventure and to the waterpark , WildWater Adventure. After visiting bigger amusement parks, Michigan’s Adventure was a nice change of pace. It is perfect for a one day trip and the waterpark allows for cooling off on the hot days of summer. We enjoyed our first visit to Michigan’s Adventure as part of a Blogger’s Weekend and enjoyed complimentary admission for the family.
The park is designed perfectly for families with younger children and you will find rides immediately upon entering the park. Some of our family favorites included Dodgem, Scrambler, Zach’s Zoomer, Thunderbolt, Tilt-A-Whirl, Swan Boats,Big Dipper, Mad Mouse, and Big Dipper. Once we had wore ourselves out on rides we headed over to WildWater Adventure to cool off and enjoy the many features the waterpark has to offer.
The waterpark was very crowded as it was very hot day but we managed to find an open picnic table to sit down at. From there the kids took off to explore the many waterpark features. Their first stop was Boogie Beach. Boogie Beach is a gigantic beach minus the sand with automatic waves that start at the sound of a buzzer. The water goes up to 7 feet but if your little ones need something a little smaller they can visit Commotion Ocean, the smallest wave pool in the waterpark. The water goes up to 5 feet so it is not as intimidating for younger ones.
The other top features of the waterpark were the Lazy River, Beach Party, and the Cyclone Zone.
After finishing out our afternoon at WildWater Adventure, we walked along the path and checked out the fish in the pond. We enjoyed a snack and then caught a ride on the Mad Mouse before grabbing a few souvenirs to remember our trip. This made a really nice day trip and the area is full of great places to visit to make a weekend trip of the area.
