One Big Bucket - Michigan's Adventure's Beach Party

It would take an awful lot of sand to fill this beach bucket!  Michigan's Adventure just received delivery of the massive bucket that will sit atop the park's new Beach Party interactive water play structure.

The new attraction already has quite a bit of its structure up, as seen here on the left.  While the attraction will feature the huge tipping beach bucket, it will also be the first of its kind to have a massive geyser.

A column of water 20 inches in diameter will be lifted up 95 feet in the air before splashing down over the crowd below - soaking them completely, of course.  I can't wait to see video of that!

Michigan's Adventure's 2011 season will start on May 21st, and the water park will open for the year on May 28th.  Check out more photos of Beach Party being built from the park.
