Budget Travel Calls Avalanche Bay a Top Ten U.S. Indoor Water Park

BOYNE FALLS, Michigan, USA /PRNewswire/ — Michigan‘s largest indoor waterpark, Avalanche Bay, has been heralded as one of the top ten indoor water parks in the U.S. by Budget Travel magazine.** The top ten waterpark hot spots as named by the magazine have been prominently featured on  
The 88,000 square foot Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark boasts five amazing waterslides, a four-story tall mountain water-play structure, shallow children’s pool and play area, wet climbing wall, lazy river, two hot tubs, Michigan‘s only indoor surfing wave, and more. 
Themed as a Swiss-Austrian Village hit by an avalanche, one of the park’s main attractions is Splasherhorn Mountain, an interactive play structure that erupts with an avalanche every twenty minutes.  The mountain rumbles and an alpine horn sounds to alert that an 800-gallon water avalanche is about to spill down on explorers below.  Patrons to Avalanche Bay can also enjoy a variety of food and beverages from the Snack Shack and Apres Ski Pub located inside the park.  The adjacent Avalanche Bay Arcade provides kids with a digital wonderland of 100+ games that can entertain for hours.
Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark is located at Boyne Mountain Resort in Boyne Falls, Michigan.  The resort offers guests a diverse selection of four-season amenities and a wide variety of lodging including hotel, condo and cabin accommodations.  With a plethora of snowsports, two golf courses, Avalanche Bay, eclectic dinning, and the new Zipline Adventures, Boyne Mountain epitomizes family fun.
