^Well yeah, they quickly reached out and snatched up their (geographically) closest competition as soon as those places started adding major rides. I'm surprised they didn't purchase Waldameer after their new woody went in...or even Darien Lake which isn't much farther away than MI-Adventure. DL would make sense so CF could claim ownership to the two worst Dinn coasters on the planet!
Discovering how close MI-Adv is to Douglas and Saugatuk makes me want to visit there even more now!
Of the road, but still in a truck...By the way, that's my dog Millie (named after Millennium Force) over there to the left!
Michigan's Adventure is a nice, smaller-sized park. I enjoyed my day there a couple summers back quite a bit. As far as Cedar Fair investing in the park goes, I think Michigan's Adventure and those who frequent the park should be glad that Cedar Fair has continued to operate the park as it is. Apparently they have found it lucrative to operate a smaller sized park for that region's families to attend, if anything over-expanding and trying to make the park into something much larger than it currently is seems like a recipe for disaster. I do think Demon Drop should have gone to MA, though.
I don't hear much about this park but it looks like they have a decent collection of coasters and you have some pretty good shots of them, especially the shots of Thunderhawk. And an SLC that's smooth, even in the back seat? My goodness, such a thing exists?
I also think that Demon Drop should have gone there, as Dorney already has Dominator and MA could use a drop ride for some flat ride variety.
^I actually think Michigan's Adventure is a strong property. For having a limited amount of guests to pull from, it does fairly well, and it doesn't have to be a large regional park. The park does lack flats though, and if a few major flats were added, it could do very well. The west coast of Michigan is a tourist area, and even though the park is away from the main tourist towns, a few major rides might draw people up there. For what it has though, Michigan's Adventure is still a decent park, but it does have room for improvement. Plus, for the price of admission, you do get your money's worth, and my only major complaint is the weak food selection that you pointed out.
Hey everyone! For Spring Break, I headed to Nickelodeon Universe and it was all good! SpongeBob is better than ever, Pepsi is still doing it's thing, and the newly opened attraction Brain Surge, opened a week before I went.
I made a music video to Nickelodeon Universe, and I think it turned out great. Feel free to check it out.
