Went on Super Bowl Sunday. Was not busy at all. Staff was very friendly. The Big Couloir is awesome. What a great slide. I think the scariest part is getting into the tube and standing on the platform!

It was not the cleanest place we've been. We were one of the first families there in the morning and there was garbage on the floor. The kids had fun, but all I could think about was taking a shower after we left.

The waterslides are great!!! They look small but you really get some speed going down them. Very exhilarating! Probably only need a 1/2 day to spend there though.

Repeat visit did not disappoint. Indoor walkway with Boyne Resort a plus on a cold and snowy January visit. Weekends can get crowded, but our trip extended to Monday and almost had the place to ourselves. Good variety of slides, lazy river and kid-friendly splash pad.

The park was very empty On a Thursday night. There was no waiting on any of the rides and we got bonus time on the wave simulator. Lifeguards were great.

We visited twice during our 8 day stay at Boyne. Both times the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. The food options are very limited (very institutional/processed) and outside food is prohibited. The slides and features were all clean and seemed in good working order, although the lane timers on the were never all functioning at the same time leading... More

We LOVE this place! The kids have a ball and so do adults. There is even a bar for adults. We really love the racing slides!

Infested with Staph! Don't go! They should be shut down! Buyers beware, this place is run by children who don't care and don't follow up.

My two daughters, 11 and 13, and I, stayed overnight at the Mountain Grand Lodge on Christmas Eve in order to experience Avalanche Bay for the first time. I am glad that we did!! Avalanche Bay claims to be Michigan's largest water park. I believe it. It seemed to have more attractions than what Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City... More
