UPDATE: AVALANCHE BAY INDOOR WATERPARK WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL MARCH 30, 2021

Based on the emergency order issued by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) on February 9, 2021, Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark must remain closed until March 29, 2021 in an effort to curb the rising rate of COVID-19 infections in our state. Our current plan to re-open on March 30, 2021 is dependent on the extension of this current order as decided upon by the MDHHS.
