Make Allegan Event Your Next Stop for High Flying Fun
Whether you’re in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, South Haven, or St. Joseph, hopping over to Allegan Event Family Adventure Center is worth the drive.
Allegan Event has experiences you won’t find anywhere else in Michigan.
Gerah Dutkiewicz, Allegan Event marketing director, invites families to a place where everyone can have fun- from toddlers to grandparents. Activities include climbing walls, ropes courses, an arcade, and a zip rail that will take you 35 feet above the ground.
“This is seriously fun for all ages,” says Gerah.
And adults can visit without kids too: Allegan Event is growing into one of the favorite local spots for company outings and parties!
FYI: Allegan Event isn’t Just for Kids
While some activity centers are geared towards children, Allegan Event is truly an all-ages space.
Adults LOVE playing at Allegan Event, too. That’s what makes it such a perfect family outing.
Gerah encourages parents to get off the spectator lines and dive into the fun themselves.
You can help your younger children with some of their activities, and you can also tag team with another adult in your group to help the kids so you can challenge yourself as well. When you take on hair-raising heights or daring climbs, you’re modeling for your kids what it’s like to try new things.
Scale the Largest Indoor Ropes Course in Michigan
The Sky Trail® at Allegan Event is massive, and easily one of the coolest ropes courses you’ve ever seen.
Sky Trail® provides 85+ rope elements (including two Sky Rail® zip rails) on a two-level course towering 35 feet in the air.
There is no set path; you may go left, right, up, down and across… or even skip elements if you want! You can explore at your own pace.
Requirements: maximum weight 300 lbs. Minimum height 48” or 42” with adult assistant. Adult assistant must participate on the attraction and assist children between 42” and 48”. Assistants are required to purchase a ticket.
Sky Tykes® Ropes Course
Younger visitors will not miss out on the ropes course fun: The Sky Tykes® course with Sky Rail® is perfect for little kids up to 48” tall.
The platforms are positioned 3 feet off the ground and allow children to build coordination and confidence while their adult chaperones stay close by to assist.
Requirements: maximum height of 48” with adult chaperone. Adult chaperones are not required to purchase a ticket but must assist child through the elements.
Sky Rail® Zip Rails
The Sky Rail® zip rails are integrated into the Sky Trail® ropes course.
Visitors can enjoy the feeling of floating as they zip along, above the crowd below.
Climb the Most Creative Rock Walls You’ll Ever See
Allegan Event offers 16 different Clip ‘n Climb® vertical climbing challenges.
Each wall has a different theme… from a head-to-head timed racing wall, to an ice cliff theme wall with pegboard handholds, to giant 3D rubber balls to climb over, it will be hard to choose a favorite.
