Tucked away in the small town of Comins, Michigan, is a little slice of a Pure Michigan summer waiting to be enjoyed. I will be the first to admit I never new this little amusement park and recreation area existed, but now that I do, I can't wait to check it out.

Located in Northern Michigan, Cedar Valley is a priceless gem that has a little bit of everything for the family to enjoy. 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.

Cedar Valley's Wild Frontier Fun Park, which is actually 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.


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;


  • 1 - 9 tickets - $3.00 each
  • 10 tickets - $25.00
  • Unlimited Rides Wristband: $30.00
  • Zipline: $15.00

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

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
