Michigan is a state that catches so much flack because many people just don't know how great of a state it truly is. Michigan is known for its beer, all things Detroit, and some prominent figures in sports, entertainment, and music. The University of Michigan is another bright spot but overall people outside of the state are oblivious to its true beauty.

Michigan has been graced with amazing nature such as the Great Lakes, Mackinac Island, the sand dunes, Pictured Rocks, and others but there are some cool attractions here as well. Dave and Busters, Craig's Cruisers, and Michigan's Adventures are the highlights. Those are in some of the larger cities in the state, sometimes the small cities have the best-hidden gems, like this indoor ropes course on the west side of Michigan.

Allegan is a small city that sits tucked into Southwest Michigan in between Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids and is often overlooked due to the two giants beside it. That's when they decided to put together an event space to try and attract visitors and also provide something fun for their residents. Allegan Event has stepped its game up and has installed the largest indoor ropes course in the mitten state.

Allegan Event is one of the best attractions in West Michigan as it is loaded with fun things for children, teens, and adults. This is perfect for a team night out, family fun night, or date night as there is an arcade, ropes course, drinks, and more.
