The new addition to the park will also allow for a new entrance to Funnel of Fear making navigation of the waterpark easier for everyone.

Muskegon, Michigan-March 14, 2016-Michigan’s Adventure will be celebrating six decades of family fun, thrills and memories in 2016 with new events and a special attraction.

To commemorate the park’s 60th Anniversary, Michigan’s Adventure will be bringing back a petting farm. Funland Farm will be the name of the new area with “Funland” being reminiscent of the Deer Park Funland days.

Funland Farm will feature a variety of animals, including llamas, alpacas, a mini horse and a miniature donkey. Families will have the opportunity to interact with the animals and create new photos and memories to last a lifetime. With the return of furry friends in 2016, guests will be able to learn about the animals with their children and grandchildren. Park guests will be able to feed and interact with the animals in a clean, barnyard style environment located near the Mad Mouse.

Deer Park was established in 1956 as a small animal park featuring deer, Freddie the llama, Storybook Lane and a variety of barnyard animals. Eventually, the park grew and added amusement park attractions and a waterpark. Michigan’s Adventure has been helping families build memories for generations in a safe, family-friendly environment. Deer Park Funland’s name was changed to Michigan’s Adventure in 1988. That same year Michigan’s first wooden roller coaster, the Wolverine Wildcat, was built.
