This place was small but nice slides compared to some other indoor places. Also this place provided hours of fun for my 5 year old. He got to go on two of the "big kid" slides (with someone of course). Locker are only 25 cent other places charge a fortune.

My kids declared that of the 5 total waterparks we have now visited in Michigan, this is now their favorite! We visited on a very hot summer day where it was cooler in the waterpark than it was outside. The lines weren't too long for the slides and there weren't too many other guests. Everything seemed very clean, they kept... More

The staff was very present. They have a good amount of people working to make sure everyone is safe and following the rules. Not being a water person it was nice that there is a bar next door connected to the building. The temps in the room were not so unbearable even up stairs. The kids had a blast and... More

Avalanche Bay is advertising itself in being biggest waterpark in Michigan! Even if that's true i thought it would be bigger than it is. If you ever visited Kalahari Waterpark i tell you that in comparison this one is about 30% smaller. Avalanche Bay is still very nice waterpark don't take me wrong. They have 6 different slides, lazy river,... More

I had two different adventurers with me (one who loved the lazy river and the other loved all the rides)! Family Fun for everyone! Look at prices for the week, it would be worth it!

This is one of the best indoor Waterparks I have personally experienced. From the surf area to large indoor slide and open expanse it is outstanding!

I was staying in the area with my husband and my two kids (2 & 4), and we all had a blast at Avalanche Bay. My 4 year old could do almost all the rides and enjoyed them all. My 2 year old had less options but still plenty to do. We did the day pass so that we could... More

Most recent visit was yesterday. Visited many times over several years and it's never boring at Av Bay. Slides are exciting and the wake generator is really popular. Does get a bit crowded when o a few hundred people are there but all kids never seem to mind. Attractions for all ages as we had 5 months to sixteen years... More

This place surprised me with the many different water slides, pools, rivers, etc. It's bigger than you would think, and my 5 year old was allowed to go on just about everything (which was a dream come true for him). We thought we'd only be there for about 2-3 hours, and easily spent at least 5 hours. Like most locker... More

It was a gray and cool summer day - Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark hit the spot! It's attached to the ski resort hotel, so it is not very big in size, which makes it completely manageable for a half-day with a 6 and 8 year old. Admission is a bit pricey, we didn't stay at the hotel so it was... More
