Puck’s Places to Play: Detroit

Puck’s Places to Play: Detroit

July 29, 2016 0 By muckfestms

MuckFest® MS Detroit is next weekend, so we had Puck put together a list of his favorite places to play when he’s not rolling around in the mud in the Motor City for MuckFest MS!


Let yourself see a little part of history by checking out Detroit’s coolest landmark; the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant.


This restored plant houses an array of vintage cars for visitors to admire in the birthplace of the Model T. Take a small glimpse into Henry Ford’s revolutionary invention that has helped shape the modern world. Puck attempts to visit every time he’s in town, but he somehow always has to leave thanks to his muddy wings… oh and for pretending to race the cars.


Unwind after taking on the mucky course at one of the many Cider Mills in the Detroit area.


In the fall, the smell of apples fills the air and a variety of vibrant colors dot the trees. It’s safe to say that Cider Mills are a staple of the Detroit area and Michigan in general. They are a favorite stop for Puck when he brings the mud to Detroit. After all, an apple a day keeps the muck away… until next time!


Enjoy a hot meal after a long day in the mud at Chubby Duck.


Despite the restaurant being called Chubby Duck, this Japanese style concept restaurant strives to serve the freshest local ingredients to create a unique dining experience. And after a long day of playing in the mud, Puck knows his Detroit Muckers will need a fresh, healthy meal to recharge just like he does. So keep an eye out because you might see Puck enjoying a Chubby Duck dish.


Relax with family and friends in the heart of the Motor City at Campus Martius Park.


In the heart of Downtown Detroit, you can find a 2.5-acre public square that serves as host to a large number of community attractions and events. Including, gardens, monuments, concerts, and a giant sandbox perfect for muckers of all ages. Puck likes to get in touch with his artistic side in the sandbox to make sand replicas of the MuckFest MS obstacles. So, if you step on a Big Ball you know who’s to blame.


Thought you say some nutty stuff at MuckFest MS? Check out The Heidelberg Project!


On an old street in Detroit, you can find proof that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. The Heidelberg Project is a public section of street that showcases a handful of houses as quirky and unusual works of art. Here you can find anything from a house covered in old teddy bears to a house covered in polka dots. Sounds like a perfect place for Puck to unleash his mad scientist side.
