Five Reasons to Make Zehnder’s Splash Village a Summer Destination [PICTURES]

Fenech Pictures

My family, the kids especially, love a good water park.  We’ve been to Kalahari in Sandusky, Ohio, Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City, but of them all I think our favorite is Zehnder’s Splash Village in Frankenmuth.

I had a remote broadcast there a few weeks ago, and Linda from Zehnder’s invited me to bring the family back and enjoy the park.  On Father’s Day, we did just that.

Not only is it a great one-day or weekend getaway, it’s only about 30-45 minutes up I-75, followed by a short drive through some beautiful country.  We all had a blast, and now I won’t just recommend you check it out, I’ll tell you about 5 things you must check out at the 30,000 square foot Splash Village!

Obviously the food is amazing, there is a full bar for the grown-ups, and a zero-depth entry play area for small kids.  But there are five things you must do at Zehnder’s Splash Village:

1)  Dumping Bucket – One of the largest in the Midwest, the dumping bucket sends a powerful rush of water down every 5 to 20 minutes.  Better hold on as this could easily knock you off your feet.  It’s so much fun!

2)  Crooked Brook Creek Lazy River – One of my personal favorites, this lazy river is perfect for family members of all ages.  While my oldest swam and played tubeless, my youngest son and I as well as my wife and daughter got in a tube and did what you are supposed to do on a lazy river… relax!

3)  Splash Pad – Designed for kids, this monstrous play scape had my wife and I battling it out with giant squirt guns, mini-dump buckets and more.  Oh, yeah… the kids liked it too!

4)  Giggling Gorge & Perilous Plunge – These two 4-story water-slides will take your breath away!  For a majority of the time on each of these high-speed treats you are in the dark, leaving you to wonder which way you’ll be zooming next!

5)  Whimsical Whirl Hot Tub – Easily one of the biggest hot tubs I have seen, the Whimsical Whirl offers a nice relaxing break from the fast pace of the rest of the village.  However, I recommend doing this last, because once you get out of the hot tub and try to go into another area, you may find the water a bit cold! :)
