A major expansion of the Bavarian Inn Lodge, one of Frankenmuth’s major attractions, is underway and seeks to dramatically expand its water park amenities and Family Entertainment offerings. A groundbreaking ceremony took place in December for the $80 million project. When completed, the new amenities will make the Bavarian Inn Lodge Michigan’s largest indoor water park and family entertainment center, at more than 140,000 square feet of family fun.

OpenAire is thrilled to announce our part in the development of this fabulous new facility at the Bavarian Inn Lodge. Crowning the waterpark with its thematic facade, designed to match the existing historic Bavarian Architecture, will be an OpenAire skylight that brings sunshine into the new waterpark year round.

The $80 million project will add 20-plus new attractions, including many water slides, wave pool and adult swim up bar.

The skylight is 175ft wide and 287ft long with a cupola over the slide tower. The skylight sits on 32ft high concrete piers over a multi level water park. Currently under construction the waterpark is moving ahead and will be open next year.
