The amusement and water park near Whitehall officially opens Saturday, kicking off a summer of fun that incorporates an element of learning this year.

The park has paired with the Detroit based Michigan Science Center to create interactive displays May 26-27 using the park's roller coasters and other rides to help explain concepts of physics.

The amusement park includes seven roller coasters, a midway, bumper boats, bumper cars, flume rides, rapid river ride and more.

Michigan's Adventure is located north of Muskegon, about a two hour drive from Lansing.
