Midwest trip help

Postby S.Parker » Fri Mar 22, 2019 7:07 pm

Planning a trip consisting of Kings Island, Cedar Point, Indiana Beach, And SF Great America. Should I go north and make a stop at Michigan’s Adventure?

I haven't been in years, but it was worth the trip for Shivering Timbers. They also have a nice water park. Not many other reasons to travel hours out of the way for MIA.

I'm going to assume you are getting a Cedar Fair Platinum Pass since you're going to both Kings Island and Cedar Point. With free parking and free admission, yeah Shivering Timbers is worth it. It's not too far out of your way between Sandusky and Chicago.

Its not that far out of your way. Plus you could either stop in Grand Rapids and check out the crazy beer scene or see beautiful lake Michigan which is about 5 minutes away from the park
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 expected nothing from western Michigan but it’s actually an incredibly cool part of the country. On its own, Michigan’s Adventure is not worth the trip (though I do like the place) but if you head up to the dunes and do something like this while you’re there then you should absolutely head up there.
