About Michigan’s Adventure Water Park

Michigan’s Adventure in Muskegon County started in 1956 as a petting zoo called Deer Park Funland. It was reinvented as a Funland twelve years later when kids rides, carnival rides, and eventually, roller coasters, were built. Over the following years, it evolved from a deer park in Michigan to a center for fun and thrills.

When Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, owner of Kings Dominion and Kings Island, bought it in 2001, the park underwent some major upgrades and grew in popularity. Now, it is a well-known and loved amusement park that hosts music festivals, draws in all audiences, and reunites both kids and adults with their spirits of adventure every summer.
