MUSKEGON, Mich. - Michigan's Adventure  is adding a new attraction this season which is a throwback to the early days of the park, 60 years ago.

The amusement park is adding the Funland Farm, an area that will feature a variety of animals, including llamas, alpacas, a mini horse and a mini donkey.  Guests will be able to feed and interact with the animals in a barnyard-style area near the Mad Mouse roller coaster.

Michigan's Adventure began in 1956 as Deer Park Funland.  The park was a small park with deer, a llama, a variety of barnyard animals and Storybook Lane.  The park changed its name to Michigan's Adventure in 1988 and started adding roller coasters.

The park will be holding Throwback Thursday's on Facebook with historical photos from the park. Park guests are being encouraged to share memorable photos on Instagram.

The park opens Memorial Day Weekend.  For passes and schedules, visit their website.

The Michigan's Adventure Facebook page has been posting historical photos since the new year. See them here:

    Went to Deer Park for our year-end class field trip in 1979 when I was in 7th grade. We practically had the park to ourselves. I remember it as one of the most fun days of my childhood.

    Amazing I thought they never should of ever taken the animals away the littlest kids until ride height loved them. But I remember when I was a kid that the thing was 10cent and you got a cup full of feed now days that be 3 dollar.
