Getting in the water and swimming are always a big part of summer in Michigan. Water parks offer another way to enjoy summer and the outdoors.

Michigan's Adventure has announced changes to their water park for 2017.

Michigan's Adventure says they will completely revamp Half Pint Paradise for 2017. The kids area of the water park will get all new equipment including seven new children's slides. A new splash pad will also be added. The splash pad will include a sailboat navigating through fish, a sea serpent, and other sea creatures. Dumping water and geysers will also be a part of the splash pad.

The Beach Party and Half Pint Paradise areas will be reconfigured to make it easier to move around and improve visibility.

There will also be a new entrance to Funnel of Fear.
