They already have the system up and running at CGA, it has music videos, commercials (they were really touting the meal plan at CGA), weather forecast for the day (hourly or every few hours ahead), and some trivia. I haven't spent a whole lot of time in lines, but I do remember them showing a Paramore video, so expect a youth-oriented music selection of recent pop songs.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Sounds interesting. Is it already running at the other parks that have already opened (Carowinds, Kings Dominion)?

I used to live near the park before 2012. I am glad Cedar Fair did not over stuff it with coasters and other rides. Also there was supposed to be a resort with an indoor water park built on site before the park was sold.
Top 5 coasters
1. Raptor, 2. Maverick, 3. Banshee, 4. Ride of Steel, 5. Shivering Timbers

Michigan's Adventure used to be my home park many years ago. I used to attend when it was still Deer Park Funland and man that place had a lot of shade trees back in the day. It's a shame they lost so much of those trees as it definatly added to the overall atmosphere of the park. I got to give Cedar fair credit for working at landscaping this park a lot more now and bringing back some of that past charm. Now as far as rides go a few more modern flat rides would balance out the dry side of the park.

^Awesome! (as usual)
I had never realized how good this ride's pacing was and there also seems to be some really nice air on those hills!
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?

^^^ Holy crap, that looks awesome. I had to skip MiA on my 2012 coastering mega-trip, so I've never had the chance to ride it, but now I really want to find a way to make it up there. It looks like it's fairly smooth (except maybe a bit of shuffling in the turns, but that's to be expected with PTC trains) & has lots of airtime. Has it had track work done recently? I know some of the CCI coasters I've ridden haven't aged well.
