Cedar Valley's Wild Frontier Fun Park, which is the 2nd largest amusement park in the state next to Michigan Adventure, is a bit of a throwback mixed with today's kind of experience. The park offers up to eighteen different rides, midway games, zip lines, batting cages, putt-putt, and more. It's filled with those vintage rides so many of us loved as a kid.

There are a couple of golf courses, Cedar Valley Golf Club and The Pines at Fairview, to enjoy. There is also the cool Cedar Valley Campground with full hook-ups, RV rentals, and even adorable cabins for your stay. Still, the big highlight is the fun park.

The park, which covers four acres, features completely restored, vintage rides that will immediately take you back in time. There's even an iconic Roll-O-Plane ride that was originally constructed in 1943 by the Eyerly Company to train pilots just waiting for you to try. On the newer side is the Galaxy 500 roller coaster that was added to the park in 2020. It first came to life in Missouri back in 1983 before making the move to its Michigan home.

Ticket pricing is fiscal-friendly too;

Rides:

  • 10 tickets - $25.00
  • Unlimited Rides Wristband: $30.00
  • Batting Cages: $1 for 24 pitches
  • Mini Golf: Free

Rides start at just 1 ticket and go up to 3 tickets, so spending the day enjoying it all won't break the bank.
