Frankenmuth Hotel Water Park

Zehnder’s Splash Village Hotel & Water Park
Zehnder’s is indeed one of my favorite Michigan indoor waterparks. Surprisingly the Splash Village Indoor Waterpark is over 50,000 sq. ft. of aquatic fun. In addition to a six-story family raft ride and super loop body slide; the park also offers a zero-entry activity pool with water geysers, water basketball, and volleyball. If you are looking for adventure then try out Action River, Splash Landing play area, Dumping Bucket, Giggling Gorge, and Perilous Plunge 4 story tube slides. However, if you like a more relaxed pace, Whimsical Whirl Hot Tub and Crooked Brook Creek Lazy River might be for you.
