Last week, my family got the chance to go to Michigan’s Adventure for the first time and we had such a great time! Michigan’s Adventure is about 3 hours away from where we live so it’s not somewhere we can visit very often so we were really excited to be able to check it out.
We packed and loaded the car and cooler and headed out at around 10am and arrived by 1pm. We played and checked out all the rides we wanted until around 6pm and headed back home, making it home just as the sun was setting at around 9pm. It was a perfect day-trip.
We went last Monday so the lines were not at all as crazy as they would normally be if we had gone on a weekend, which worked so well in our favor because we got to go on most of the rides. My son and nephew are a year apart so they enjoyed the rides together while my siblings and I took turns on a few rides, but most of the rides we enjoyed together which was nice.
I love the variety of rides that Michigan’s Adventure offers. They have rides that are perfect for children, adults, families, water rides, and thrill seekers for every levels. There are a couple of water rides at Michigan’s Adventure, but there is also WildWater Adventure Park right next to it as well so we were able to enjoy both.
There are a TON of areas where you get food, drinks, and treats– almost everywhere you turn. There are also several restrooms, changing areas, DRYING areas– yes! Drying areas. There are a few places where you can stand in this area and it will dry you up like a massive blow dryer, it is so convenient! There are really fun carnival games and prizes too, places where you can buy souvenirs, and so much more.
When we first arrived, we did a few of the rides just for the little ones and they loved it. They went on the airplanes and the elephants. Next we did a few of the family rides together. The little ones did the Frog Hopper, then we did the Giant Gondola Wheel, the Scrambler, Timbertown Railway, and Grand Rapids together. I went on the Flying Trapeze with my brother and that was enough thrill seeking for my day! My brother and sister also went on the Shivering Timbers and the Thunderhawk and they loved it! My favorite of the rides we went on was the Grand Rapids because we all did it together and it was a water ride which made it even more fun.
There’s so much to do at WildWater Adventure! If you split up your day you could probably do all the rides at Michigan’s Adventure first and then spend the rest of you day at WildWater Adventure which is what we did and we enjoyed it. They have a lazy river, wave pools, a variety of water slides, pool areas, and so much more. My brother went on the Slidewinders and the Ride Rider and then we spent the rest of our time at the Beach Party, Boogie Beach, and Tidal Wave. The weather was so perfect for it! And I loved the tidal wave I thought it was a great way to feel like you were at the beach without the sand.
You can pay $33 for general admissions to Michigan’s Adventure and they also have a fast pass option which lets you skip the long lines at the rollercoasters for $43 online. They have season passes which is a great way to save if you plan on attending more frequently, dining specials, cabana rentals and more all available on their website.
We Loved It!
Overall, we really enjoyed our visit to Michigan’s Adventure and we cannot wait to go back. I only wish we lived closer but like I said it is perfect for a day trip! There are rides and activities for all members for the family to enjoy so you are bound to find something for everyone. I really love how versatile it is and I love that the water park is right next to the amusement park– super convenient.
If you’re looking for a great place to visit with your family in Michigan or just somewhere to go for a fun adventure, then you have to check out Michigan’s Adventure. You won’t regret it.
