Ropes Challenge Course: Discover your "inner pirate", as you enter a hidden buccaneer's roost located high in the rigging of an old ship wreck. Safely navigate your way through a series of rope obstacles on two levels, situated up to 33 feet off the ground! Fun and safe for all ages.  (Must be 44 inches.)

World Class Adventure Golf: Try one of our two 18-hole courses and find out why we were voted AAA "Best in Michigan". Enter the world of 18th century pirates-- carousing buccaneers, sunken ships, cascading waterfalls and dreaded pirate dungeons.  Putt your way through mountain caves, over footbridges and beneath mystic waterfalls. All ages can "meet the challenge".

Billy Bones Race Track Go-Carts:  Speed on the ultimate road track and experience the competitive rush of car racing against a fleet of 18 go-carts, on an awesome 830-foot track. Two-seat carts are available for younger pirates.  (Must be 58 inches tall to drive go-carts; 40 inches tall to be a passenger.  Passengers must ride with adult 18 years or older.)

Bumper Boats: The summer's hottest and coolest bumper boats in town. Beat the heat in boats that rock, spin and spray! Battle your friends with squirt guns attached to the boats. Do it all in our giant contoured pool.  (Must be 44 inches tall to drive, and 40 inches tall to be a passenger).

Kiddy Go-Carts:  Little pirates rejoice!  A track specially designed for kids aged 5 years and up.  Young buccaneers command their own clean electric go-cart on a shaded raceway.  

Blackbeard's Den Game Room:  Test your skills on a variety of action, family-oriented video and plush prize games!

**WATER COASTER:  Regretfully our water coaster has been removed from the park.  The largest pine tree on the property fell across the ride this past spring, crushing numerous pieces that the manufacturer can no longer reproduce.
