What is there to do?

18-Hole Adventure Golf

Test your ability on Northern Michigan's most challenging 18-Hole Adventure Golf Course! With 11 water hazards, Big Bear is sure to test the most avid golfer. Have fun as you play over and around thundering waterfalls, bubbling streams, and natural rock - all on a beautiful, forested hillside. Wind your way through the twists and turns, watch out for the swinging log, and be careful not to spook the grizzly fishing for salmon in the stream! Tiptoe through our darkened cave and don't miss our mounted, 8 foot tall World Record Alaskan Brown Bear!

Ropes Challenge Course: Taking Fun to New Heights!

Brace yourself for an exciting adventure! The course features 11 different elements that require balance, dexterity, and focus to conquer, like swinging steps, "tremor bridge", tightrope walk, and vertical angle stairs.

"Sky Trail", our new Ropes Challenge Course, consists of horizontally strung cables, ropes, boards and other materials secured between steel supports to create elements or activities. Each participant is outfitted with a full body harness and a safety lanyard, or sling line, that is always hooked into an overhead safety system. Participants are then allowed to cross each element by walking, balancing or traversing to the opposite platform. They are encouraged to challenge each element as they feel comfortable. They can either hang on to everything that is provided them or they can even traverse the element without holding onto anything. If they fall, the sling line and harness will not let them go more than 4 inches, and they can get up and continue. Participants can choose their own path through the course while going at their own pace with the ability to pass other participants at each platform.

Bumper Boats: Rock, Spin and Spray!

The hottest and coolest bumper boats are here! This exciting ride could easily be called the "Stealth" bumper boat as it features an ultra-quiet, 24-volt electric motor. The only sounds you'll hear are splashing, laughter, and people having fun! Have a blast while battling your friends with squirters attached to the boats! (this feature can be turned off in the case of inclement weather).
