Muskegon Winter Sports Complex
The two-acre outdoor skating rink might be Muskegon Winter Sports Complex's crown jewel, but there's a lot more fun to be had on attractions at the 400-acre facility. The forested wonderland features a giant luge, a kid-friendly sledding hill, a 15K cross-country ski trail, and a vast snowshoe area. The fun continues long after the snow melts and the snowmen head off to their summer homes too, with a summer luge that keeps the thrills rolling on lightning-quick wheeled sleds.
