Stagecoach Stop USA in Irish Hills, MI

Mon Jul 28, 2008 8:57 pm

So my buddy Chris took his kids down to this place in Irish Hills, MI which is pretty much in the middle on no where.
The place is called "Stagecoach Stop USA". I have never heard of it, and I also didn't know about the now defunct coaster that they have named "The Cornstalk Load Goldmine - Runaway Mine Cars".
I couldn't find any information on the coaster. Here is a link to the places website "www.stagecoachstop.com", but it doesn't have any information on the coaster.
Ever heard of this place, or the coaster?

Being the good guy that he is, when he spotted the rusty, shut down coaster... he thought of me!
He gave me some photo's that he took of the coaster this past Friday and Saturday.
They aren't the best quality, but they're better than any other pics that I've seen of this coaster, which is none!

Here are the photos.
Hopefully this works out ok, as this is my first time posting any photos like this.
Entrance sign for the coaster.

I think this coaster needs a nice, new home...it would fit in great at Conneaut Lake Park!

That was bad, I know! :devil:
