Know Before You Go


UPDATE Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark will reopen for business on Friday, July 3. Things may be different from the last time you visited, so please see below for new protocols.


What We Know

As we prepare for a phased reopening of the waterpark, we've made updates based on guidance from local health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and appropriate government agencies. These measures are designed to promote:

  • Cleanliness 
  • Physical distancing
  • Reduced contact

Things may be different from the last time you visited. But together, we can find new ways to create splashtacular memories!


New Day Pass Reservation Process

Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark will reopen on July 3, 2020.

The waterpark will reopen with some important updates to promote physical distancing, including:

  • Hours of Operations: To maintain the 25% capacity limit as required Michigan Governor's executive order, Avalanche Bay will offer three (3) sessions each day with a maximum capacity of 250 guests per session. Each session will be 3 hours in length, and will be followed by a sanitation period. Sessions are as follows:
      • Morning: 10am - 1pm
      • Afternoon: 2pm - 5pm
      • Evening: 6pm - 9pm

  • Day Pass Reservations: Initially, park attendance will be managed by all guests purchasing their day passes online in advance. Children, age 2 and under, still splash free, but must reserve a day pass in advance to enter. No day passes may be purchased at the waterpark kiosk. To enter the park, guests will need to provide their day pass confirmation number. Season pass holders must also reserve their day pass prior to arrival. Passholders can obtain their day pass at no cost here. Login required to purchase.
  • Splash & Stay Packages: At this time, Splash & Stay packages are temporarily unavailable. Guests can reserve lodging at Boyne Mountain Resort, and purchase day passes to Avalanche Bay separately.

Upon reopening, Avalanche Bay attractions, as well as Boyne Mountain lodging, restaurants, experiences and other offerings may be modified and will be limited in capacity and subject to limited availability or closure, based on direction from health experts and government officials to promote physical distancing.
