I’m going to start this post out by saying I’ve never been to an indoor water park. It seems everyone I know has, however. Having heard so much about all of these indoor water parks in Michigan, I figured I’d do a little research and see just how many of them there are. It turns out, there are a lot more than I anticipated. Read on for what I believe is the complete list of every indoor water park in Michigan.
