Waterpark Fun in Frankenmuth, Michigan

Whether you are six or sixty years old, born to swim or afraid of the deep-end, there is so much fun to be had at the Bavarian Inn Waterpark and Zehnder’s Splash Village Hotel & Waterpark. This is the perfect getaway for families looking to get soaked in fun for the day or weekend. From daring watersides to lazy rivers, anyone can make their visit to Frankenmuth a splash!

Add some extra thrill to your time in the water by propelling down one of the many waterslides in Frankenmuth! Two towering waterslides are available at the Bavarian Inn Waterpark, one of which can be experienced on a tube with a friend. At Zehnder’s Splash Village, the Super Loop Speed Slide drops thrill-seekers a whopping four stories through a 360 degree loop! Or grab a raft with up to four people to twist and turn down six stories of splash-tastic fun on the Tantrum Twist.

Feeling lazy? Mosey along the lazy river at Zehnder’s Splash Village. Grab a tube to float along, or let the current gently push your feet down the winding Crooked Brook Creek. If you are looking for a little more excitement, check out Zehnder’s Action River. Fighting this current is nearly impossible, and be sure to watch out for overhead splashes from giant tubes! If your visit coincides with beautiful weather, Zehnder’s may bring some fresh air into the Atrium and Splash Park with the only retractable roof in a waterpark in the Upper Midwest.

See if your skills on the court can hold up in the water with Water Basketball and Water Volleyball at Zehnder’s. Gather the entire family for some healthy competition, or challenge other visitors at Splash Village. Let the games begin!

Both waterparks are completely kid-friendly, but let’s be honest – it can be a little hard to find your zen or sneak in a few laps with the exuberant energy of children in a pool! Bavarian Inn Waterpark has four different pools, one of which is adult only.

Speaking of feeling relaxed, if you have an itty-bitty one in your life – Zehnder’s and Bavarian Inn each have zero-entry pools. This shallow pool will ease your mind as your little one explores, and enjoys all the splashing fountains!

Having fun above the water is more than possible at Zehnder’s Hotel and Waterpark and the Bavarian Inn Lodge. Arcades are available at each location. Time for air-hockey and ski-ball! Be sure to check out the indoor mini golf course at the Bavarian Inn Lodge, and take the stage at Karaoke Night every Friday and Saturday night. Zehnder’s Hotel and Waterpark also offers a complimentary movie every night in the main lobby. Families can enjoy Disney classics in their pajamas. After all the fun in the water, this is sure to be the perfect sleeping anecdote for everyone!
