Highflying Fun in Southwest Michigan
Whether you’re in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, South Haven, or St. Joseph, making the trek over to the Allegan Event Family Adventure Center is worth the drive.
Once there, you’ll find ropes course and adventure experiences that are hard to come by in other parts of the state.
Best Flying Day Ever
If your family has a wide age spread like ours, finding things that everyone enjoys is a challenge.
Our kids are ages 1, 3, 9 and 13 so when I heard about Allegan Event I knew we had to check it out. American ninja warrior for the day, here I come!
Spoiler Alert: Our expectations were completely exceeded—according to our 3-year-old it was the “best flying day ever.”
What You’ll Find Inside Allegan Event Fun Center
The event center warehouse is located on River St. northeast of downtown Allegan.
Inside, you’ll find three levels of ropes course obstacles.
The two upper levels are for participants 48 inches and up, while the Sky Tykes ropes course & Sky Trail lower level (adult supervision needed) is perfect for kids up to 48 inches tall.
The Sky Tykes area is the perfect space for toddlers to face their fears. I loved watching my daughter’s tiny self in a harness cruising through obstacles.
On her first time through the course, my daughter needed to be held when using the zip line. The second time (and the 30+ times after) she was a pro. It was amazing to see her overcome her fears and radically transform into a girl with oodles of confidence.
I’ll say it again: the low-level zipline and ropes course is perfect for beginners and little ones.
