The countdown is on to the Memorial Day weekend, and the opening of three aqua parks across the state.
Opening on May 25, the floating playgrounds include fun for the whole family, including a series of connected inflatable slides, runways, jumping pillows and bouncers for kids and adults.
They’ll be located at the Holly and Brighton Recreation Areas, and Van Riper State Park in the Upper Peninsula.
The WhoaZone, on Heron Beach at the Holly Recreation Area offers four different routes with four different challenge levels—from easy to challenging. You can jump, climb, crawl and slide on the giant springboard, semi-circle step, wiggle bridge, halfpipe, and more.
Jump Island will be on Bishop lake within the Brighton Recreation Area in Livingston County. The water course includes an inflatable iceberg, inflatable slides, runways and other obstacles.
Water Warrior Island is on Lake Michigamme in Van Riper State Park in Marquette County. The aqua park includes a 20-foot water slide, rock climbing walls, trampolines, floating walkways and a ninja-warrior-like obstacle course.
Ticket and reservation information, rules, height requirements, and hours of operation vary from park to park.
