Spend a few hours in the tropics

By TELISHA RYAN, Staff Writer

Looking for something to do with your friends that involves tropical temperatures, great food, and surfing? Then check out the new Soaring Eagle Waterpark and Hotel located next door to MMCC’s Pickard campus.

Students can get day passes — buy one, get one free — plus great deals on room rates.

More than 3 million gallons of water flow through the pools every day. Take a thrilling ride down the Loon’s Loop bowl slide, impress your date by conquering Makwas (bear) Mountain and relax after all of that hard work studying in the Hot Springs. Reservations are recommended as passes may be limited based on hotel room occupancy, special events or holidays.

To check on the availability of student deals for waterpark passes, call (989) 817-4801.

Waterpark hours are Sunday-Thursday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday-Saturday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Nbakade restaurant offers a varied menu,  as well as a well-stocked bar – a perfect place for dinner after a hard day of fun. Breakfast is served from 7 a.m.-11 a.m. daily. Lunch and dinner are served 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Giga-waabamin wayiiba – that’s Ojibwe for “see you soon.”
