Half-Pint Paradise

New thrills have arrived at Michigan’s Adventure with the addition of a new water park attraction that is sure to excite families and young children.

Half Pint Paradise has been completely revamped with all new equipment including seven new children’s slides. In addition, a new Splash Pad offers a variety of interactive water play features shaped to reflect a sailboat navigating through fish, a sea serpent, and other sea creatures to stimulate the imagination for kids of all ages. Dumping water structures and bubbling geysers surround the features and make playtime exciting to the delight and engagement of younger park goers.

The Beach Party and Half Pint Paradise areas have been reconfigured so that guests can move easily between the two family play areas with improved visibility. This offers families with small thrill seekers the opportunity to concentrate their fun into an area designed just for them. Additional seating with shaded areas, plus private cabanas offer both relaxation and comfort for families seeking summertime fun! 

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

Guests over 48” in bare feet must be accompanied by a child. Hand-held infants are not permitted on slides and must be accompanied by a supervising companion on the splash pad. A supervising companion may accompany up to 2 guests.
