We took our 5 and 7 year-olds to Avalanche Bay when it was too cold to ski last week. They both love to swim, and we went to Blizzard Beach at Disney last year, so they have experienced the water park thing before. Unfortunately, they were not big fans of constantly being splashed in the face, and it took a... More

The waterpark had a nice variety of slides. The slide where the bottom door drops out was closed during our visit and my nephew was injured on it before it was closed, beware. However, the locker room was very dirty and there were several people wearing their winter boots in the waterpark. I felt this caused the floors to feel... More

It was too cold for us to ski so we played at Avalanche Bay! This was our first experience at an indoor water park, and we would definitely recommend it. Short lines (and sometimes nonexistent!) for the water slides. Plenty of room to play in the Kitz Pool and the Lazy River. My 4 year old and I had a... More

I took my daughter and her friends to Avalanche Bay for her birthday on February 15th. 2015. We purchased the tickets online and drove three hours to get to their facility, when I arrived at 3:30pm. I talked to Mike a supervisor there about the air quality in the park, he assured me there was no problem it was caused... More

Food was great (pizza was a lot better than we expected as was the other food). Took a long time to get checked in (slow clerk who didn't know how to charge some rates and... More

This is great place for family members of all ages. We stayed in the remote cabins near this water park for three or four nights in August and couldn't be more pleased with all be discovered off season. For the kids there was zip-lining, biking and water sports. The adults enjoyed the wonderful spa, riding to ski lift to a... More

If you are familiar with Indoor Water Parks, such as Great Wolf Lodge, then you already know everything you need to know about Avalanche Bay. Great for the kids, it makes the trip to Boyne Mountain like two trips in one. Highly Recommended!

I have been here many times and haven't had a bad experience. We live by a Great Wolf Lodge. However, they don't offer day passes so taking trips up to Avalanche Bay is a must and definitely worth it.
