One Michigan’s most popular tourist attractions will become even more popular after an $80 million expansion.

The Bavarian Inn Lodge in Frankenmuth is adding on to its indoor water park and family entertainment center, making it Michigan’s largest at over 140,000 square feet.

The expansion will add 20 new attractions, including several water slides, a wave pool and a swim-up bar for adults.

Groundbreaking on the seventh major construction project at the resort is scheduled for Dec. 13. Some of the new attractions will be available in about a year and total completion is scheduled for the spring of 2024.

The existing Family Fun Center and indoor water park at Bavarian Inn Lodge will remain in operation with no disruptions during the construction.
