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

We liked that the Adventure Camp for kids visited the park with admission included in the rate for a full day of camp. Perfect for our group.

This facility tries unsuccessfully to accommodate families with children of various ages. The pool with 5 hoops became a free-for-all with the teenage guests being unruly and unsafe. I got hit in the face with a ball as I was caught in the cross-fire of a ball "fight". The lifeguards are young and change locations every 15-20 minutes. Each lifeguard... More

My kids and I had a blast. Very humid inside. Guess I exspected a few more slides. Over all very happy. Park could use some minor renovations and cleaning. Looking forward to spending more time there.

Visited Boyne Mountain resort with my husband and two granddaughters. We took a day out and visited Avalanche Bay. Had a wonderful time! The girls are still talking about it. Can't wait to go back next year.

My kids loved the park, but it was a little on the small side. It was fun for one day, but not a place to spend several days.

The kid's have enjoyed themselves many times here. My husband and myself have found the lounges to have great food and nice beer selections.
