You can enjoy the floating playground, which includes a series of connected inflatable slides, runways, and more.

All three water parks will open May 25 and include:

  • Water Warrior Island is located on Lake Michigamme in Van Riper State Park in Marquette County. This floating playground includes 20-foot water slides, rock climbing walls, trampolines, floating walkways and a ninja-warrior-like obstacle course.
  • Jump Island situated on Bishop Lake within the Brighton Recreation Area in Livingston County, offers the “ultimate inflatable water park experience.” The water course includes an inflatable iceberg, inflatable slides, runways and other obstacles that give visitors the ability to balance, walk, run or slide on water.
  • The WhoaZone on Heron Beach is located at the Holly Recreation Area in Oakland County. The course offers four different routes with four different challenge levels – from easy up to challenging. Visitors can climb, jump, crawl and slide on the gigantic springboard, semi-circle step, the wiggle bridge, half-pipe and more.

Ticket and reservation information, rules, height requirements and hours of operation vary between each attraction.
