Maybe jumbo hot dogs are more valuable there, than hamburgers...? ;)

Well, both are on their Dining Plan, I notice.

Great ongoing TR. That sunset photo looks great, too!

About the Sandusky/Buena Vista sign:

More than one person I know has confused Sandusky, MI with Sandusky, OH. Also, Buena Vista is the worst part of Saginaw; it's so bad that its school district (it had its own district separate from Saginaw Public Schools) was shut down by the state a few years ago.

Michigan's Adventure looks like a really fun park. I know I'm kinda preaching to the choir here, but it desperately needs a new addition. Please Cedar Fair.

A hot dog costing more than a burger? Maybe they're trying to raise profits for that RMC raptor or whatever the latest rumor is.

New for 2018: put your coins in the plastic funnel and watch them disappear!

Yes...im not sure what the hold up is for them adding a new attraction, but it's definitely needed. I'm afraid that cedar fair may geauga lake this park.

Anyways, here are the rest of the Michigan's adventure pictures.

I didn't quite "get" not having a path around the lake. I remember we kept thinking that there has to be some other way over to Shivering Timbers from the SLC around the lake - nope.

Still love me some Shivering Timbers, but I echo what everyone else has already said - they need another signature attraction.

Yea, it's either you walk all the way around or take the train.

The sand thing is partly true, it's more of marshy type soil. It's one of the reasons, the sewage / water issues behind Wolverine took so long. I think it's also why Thunderhawk was built on a slab and not over the water. But with today's tech, the land type shouldn't be an excuse for the future. The food prices are always why I bring my own lunch. It's a lot easier and saves money.

Ok...time for our bonus park.....cedarpoint. After getting home from our trip, we decided that 14 parks wasn't enough so we headed to cedar point. At this point, the Halloween props were popping up like weeds in my back yard.

We were lucky enough to go durring the last week that they are durring week days, and that ment short lines! We waited about 10 min for dragster. I will have some final thoughts on the trip coming soon, but untill then here are some cp pictures.
