Zaboomafoo was a great show!
Of the road, but still in a truck...By the way, that's my dog Millie (named after Millennium Force) over there to the left!

These photos really make me want to go back to Liseberg! One of my fave parks on Earth, and home of my #1 fave woodie. I need to make it to Scandinavia more often.

Thanks everyone for the replies! I really am thankful!
And thanks Robb for including this thread in the recent email! Much Appreciated!

On September 6th, 2009, I headed to Michigan's Adventure. It was Labor Day weekend, so I just wanted a visit before the park closed for the year. Shall we head onto the photos?

Great report, Jeremie! I loved the Thunderhawk pictures! It is such a fun coaster!

Keep up the great work!

Great trip report, and it sounds like you have a lot of the opinions of the park that I do. Shivering Timbers is awesome, and for some reason, Wolverine Wildcat is incredibly smooth. Although, unlike my visit, the park looks like it was dead when you went, and even though a packed Michigan's Adventure isn't that bad, you can tell it doesn't handle crowds well. Again, great trip report and photos, and it just reminds me to try to make another visit up to it this year.

Airtime - although, MA really needs some larger rides - &Gravity

I just got off the phone with someone at michigans adventure about a season pass question, and also asked about what is new this year. She said that "ride wise" there are a few things in the works.

Hmmmmmm......

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Wolverine Wildcat only has one train as well, correct?

Yes.

There is no transfer track(or is there a place to put one) on the wildcat. The ride could really use a 2'nd train.

There won't be any new rides this season, that's been confirmed by General Manager Camille Jourden-Mark. I'm interested to see if this person was just wrong, and had no idea what's going on as far as what's "new" or if something really will be changing... guess we'll find out in a few months.

Wow, awesome report!

I've never really paid much attention to Michigan's Adventure, but everything in your pictures looks great. I love all the colors throughout the park. Very...fun-looking!
