Jan 2017 Winter Blast

If you’re looking for an excuse to ride a 30-foot high slide that sweeps through a pitch-black tube before abruptly dropping you at a 40-degree angle, check out 2017 Winter Blast. There’s also a 30-foot by 40-foot ice maze that’ll send you on an interactive journey. How about a zipline adventure on the quickest mobile zipline in Michigan?
