I just have one question about Michigans Adventure... What's up with the train??? Went there last summer and completly confused. By the lack of anything going on, would have thought it would have made more sens if it was integrated into the park.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

When I went to MIAdv in 08 I saw the train more as a break from the walking to look at the backside of Timbers and ALL THE LAND THEY HAVE FOR FUTURE EXPANSION! And Timbers has a gorgeous backside. CONGRATULATIONS on the new waterpark addition, MIAdv regulars! Their waterpark is one of the best I've ever been to, and this will make it even better.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

According to screamscape, the falling star ride is being removed and is no longer listed on the parks website.

It could be where the drop tower goes that enthusiasts rumored for years about.

If they were to add a drop tower, I don't think they would have to remove a attraction to find space for it.

I’m not really sure what this is about, but Michigan’s Adventure has announced on Facebook that they will soon make an announcement regarding a special Memorial Day weekend event. Anyone know more?

Does anyone know anything about this event? Because my family might go up there that weekend, and it might be cool to see that. (Oh, also, is Shivering Timbers smooth?)

They're bringing back Rock the Coast this year, like I previously stated in the Cedar Fair development thread. They officially announced it last week. Here's the short excerpt from the website:

Rock the Coast is back... bigger and better than ever!

Rock the Coast will be a two day event and will be held on Memorial Day weekend for the first time. The event will take place Friday, May 24 and Saturday, May 25, with park entry both days and Christian concerts both nights.


http://www.miadventure.com/events/things-to-do/special-events/Rock-the-Coast

Bands haven't been decided yet, but tickets are sitting at $44.99 for both days and both nights of the concerts, price does go up by $10 once those early bird ticket sell out. This is actually a pretty good deal, for 2 days in the park and 2 concert nights, but they are Christian rock bands, so guess you'd have to like that kind of music to enjoy the concerts.

Now my question is, by this weekend, the waterpark is already opened and they have since the beginning of Rock the Coast put the stage inside of the larger wave pool in the waterpark. So either they're building a permanent live entertainment stage somewhere in the park, or setting up a temporary stage somewhere on the property where there's enough room, or just not using that wave pool until the weekend is done, which I think that's a bad idea since it's going to be one of the first busiest weekends the park is going to have.

EDIT: I'd also like to answer the OP question about Shivering Timbers: as of 2012, the coaster was running pretty well. The 1st drop was just re-tracked last off season and actually had stairs installed going down it. The past couple seasons, various sections of it was re-tracked and sections were also reinforced to prevent too much shifting in the track. This off season, I'm expecting more of it to be torn up and redone, mainly the double up coming into the turn around. Also in 2010, a trim brake was added just before the helix so it wouldn't be so rough and make it slightly more enjoyable going into that. Wolverine Wildcat also had a trim brake installed in 2010 to help slow the train down in the final turn into the brake run since it's still manual brakes, which I have a feeling it'll be like that for a few more years until Cedar Fair decides that it's time to up the capacity on it and give it a 2nd train, transfer track, and an automated control system.
The man may keep me down but opinions are my own.

Looks like they're announcing a new attraction for this year on Monday.

https://www.facebook.com/miadventure/posts/10152061484206758

A new attraction you will see
in two thousand thirteen

I cannot tell you more
About what is in store

Get a season pass for everyone
And get ready for summer fun

An announcement on Monday
You know you can’t wait!


This is about as vague as you could get. What they call attractions is pretty much anything, as they said Beach Party was an attraction when it was being announced. But all I can say is, I'm glad to hear that something is being announced. Doubt it's a coaster or anything to do with the water park, cause another coaster isn't in the Cedar Fair 2013 budget and the water park just had Beach Party installed. So the options are: a shorter 200ft tall Windseeker, Planet Snoopy, or something entirely different. Reason for a shorter Windseeker is because there is actually a 215ft tall height restriction in place by the 2 townships its in. Mondial offers a 24, 36, 50, or 64 capacities and 65m (213ft) or 100m (328ft) tower heights. Could see a 36 person, 213ft tall model installed here. Would work perfectly here!
