Michigan: The Fun Center

Located along US-12 in rural Michigan, Irish Hills was once a popular tourist destination for road trippers headed to races at the Michigan International Speedway. Today, the tourist traps that were popular in the 1970’s have mostly gone out of business, shuttered and fading into the rolling, leafy landscape that once reminded Irish immigrants of their homeland.

Among them is the Fun Center, a small amusement park arranged around a looping go-kart track and waterslide. It also included a mini golf course with stone cave structures and fiberglass animals, a bumper boat pool, batting cages, a paintball course, and an arcade.

As they often are, this is an obscure location without much information on its history available.  If you have any memories here, please leave a comment!
