Michigan Sand Box

Dip your toes into our real Lake Michigan sand box, full of your classic sand box toys plus dinos to dig and seashells to find! Listen to the ocean breeze, and enjoy this sensory experience.

Rainbow Ball Pit

This colorful corner of the Learning Lagoon is a great space to dive into fun. Sink into the rainbow ball pit and let your imagination run wild! Nearby is Kerplunk, a boat on stilts with colorful pipes for sending the rainbow ball pit balls on a twisting journey!

Our ever-expanding kiddie kitchen area offers a pizza oven, grocery checkout, and all the utensils needed to make-believe a delicious recipe or serve a pretend meal to your friends.
