I was thinking about this, and think that a small park like the size of beach bend would work great in this area.

Cedar point is 3 hours away, and Michigan's adventure is a little over 3 hours.

Wow I just found out about this! It'll be fun to have a coaster just a few miles from where I live! How awesome would it be to see this evolve into an actual park?? This sounds like a start!

Swung by the park, and there has been a lot of construction of the coaster in the past week or so. Here are some pictures....

Lots of pieces sitting in the parking lot

Looks like the train and a bunch of wheels.

After seeing thrillrider's pictures I had to go see the coaster for myself. A lot more has been done since Sunday, such as the loop and other parts.
I thought that construction wouldn't be started in the spring. It looks like most of the track is complete only two pieces left in the staging area.
Can't wait to ride it even if it's a crappy ride at least there is a roller coaster within a 20 minute car ride from my house. :b
Here is a picture of what the coaster looked as of this afternoon.

At least you guys are getting the Flitzer, too. That Pinfari gave me one of the worst coaster experiences I've ever had this summer.

I would be extremely grateful to have almost any coaster near where I live (closest one is a Reverchon spinner and a Vekoma family coaster about 5 hours south), but I don't think I would ever be able to feel any sort of excitement for a Pinfari looper. But hopefully for you this can help the park develop into something better in the future.

I know I shouldn't too excited for a Pinfari. When I was younger my family when to the London Western fair in Ontario Canada (my home town) they had a Pinfari Zyklon. I rode the crap out of and thought it was the best thing ever. That was the deal until I went to Cedar Point and found way better coasters. It just doesn't seem real that a coaster of some kind is in the metro Detriot area, beside the crappy Jeeper's Python Pit coaster.

I might have to drive out this summer and check it out. Since another michigan park refuse's to build rides because it would effect there maintenance budget
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

I just drove by today and was going to report that the whole thing was already up but I guess that's been covered already! I've never been on a Pinfari before so it'll be interesting to see what I think.
