Some Helpful Hints To Plan Your Day

Plan for changing weather; bring warmer/cooler clothing to change into if needed. When rain is forecast, bring dry clothing or raingear. Wear comfortable shoes such as sneakers or walking shoes.
Shirts, shoes and shorts/pants are required in the amusement park at all times. To maintain the family atmosphere at Michigan's Adventure, a dress code is enforced. Please do not wear clothing that is generally considered offensive (profanity, suggestive pictures, thong swimwear, etc.). We will ask you to remove the offensive garment and replace it with something more appropriate. Guests are prohibited from wearing anything which conceals the guest's true identity.
WildWater Adventure requires all participants to be in swim suits. Street clothes (athletic clothing, nylon shorts, jean shorts, etc.) are not permitted. Metal snaps, buttons, rivets, or zippers are not allowed.
Michigan's Adventure's life jacket policy applies to wave pools (Tidal Wave, Commotion Ocean, and Boogie Beach)

A life jacket is required for anyone who is less than 48" tall in bare feet or is an inexperienced or nonswimmer. Guests under 42" are required to wear life jackets and be accompanied by a responsible person. Only Coast Guard approved life jackets are allowed as flotation devices. Life jackets are provided free of charge for guests who require one. Life jackets are allowed as long as they have a USCG approval number on them. Inflatable arm bands or other inflatable toys are not allowed.
There are lockers at the front entrance as well as at the entrance to the waterpark. If you plan to use the waterpark attractions, you should rent a locker at the waterpark as shirts, shorts and shoes are required in the amusement park at all times. Waterpark lockers close at waterpark closing time.

Lockers are rented for $12 and include unlimited use during the day.  Upon return of the key, you will receive either a souvenir item or $6 in Beagle Bucks which may be spent in the park.
Guests with small children who do not meet the requirements of height restricted rides may obtain a Parent Swap pass at the Group Sales Office.
The vast majority of items lost by guests are hats, glasses or cell phones lost while riding a ride. Use a sports strap for glasses, and remove hats while on rides. We cannot retrieve articles lost under a ride while it is in operation. If you lose an item, Lost and Found is located at Guest Relations in the ride park, and Tube Rental in the water park.

If you discover you've lost an item after your visit, you can report a lost item, by calling (231) 766-9959.
Michigan's Adventure does not have a kennel, and pets are not allowed inside the park. We strongly suggest that guests do not bring pets to the park for any reason. Pets should never be left in a parked vehicle.
Outside food, beverages or coolers are not allowed in the park. Special diet/need items may be kept in a small cooler, which must be tagged at the Group Sales Office at the entrance to the park.  Grilling / alcholic beverages are not allowed anywhere at the Park, including the parking lot.
Michigan's Adventure does not close due to poor weather. On rainy days, some rides may close for safety reasons, and will be re-opened as soon as safely possible. If lightning is overhead, all rides will close until the lightning passes. The park remains open, and the rides will re-open as soon as the lightning has passed and it is safe to do so.

The waterpark does not open on days when the air temperature does not reach 65 degrees within 2 hours of opening. Temperature does not affect the operation of the amusement park.

Rain checks or refunds are not available.
Guests are free to leave and re-enter the park the same day. When leaving, please get a handstamp at the front entrance. Please note that ticket stubs or receipts are not valid for re-admission. Please note that we do not validate parking passes; there is a fee to re-enter the parking lot if you leave it.
ATMs are available in the following locations:
  • Guest Relations just inside the Front Entrance
  • Wildwater Outfitter's at the entrance to the waterpark
Picture taking is stricly prohibited on most attractions, including all roller coasters.
Hand-held infants are restricted from most rides. Hand-held infants may be taken on the chariots of the Carousel, the Giant Gondola Wheel, and the Timbertown Railway. In the waterpark hand-held infants may be held by a responsible person in the wave pools and the Lazy River (must also wear an infant life jacket), the Lagoon, and in Half Pint Paradise.
