I just got back from Michigan's Adventure. Everyone at the park was saying that Shivering Timbers was rough, but I thought it was smooth for a woodie. The airtime was great! I'm really skinny, so the safety bar was pretty loose, and I wore the seatbelt loose too. On the airtime hills, it felt like I was standing. I'm not the biggest fan of woodies, but this is going into my top 5! About the rest of the park: Yes, it needs better landscaping and more restrooms. There aren't many food stands either. The rides are all right, but they need a ride like Power Tower or something, so more thrill-seekers could come. If you don't go to the water park, the ride park starts to get boring. After I rode all the coasters,which took less than an hour, I just wandered around the park. It wasn't a bad place, but there was not much to do.
I agree the park is small but the ride on shivering timbers is worth the price of admission ...lets say this if your passing by michigan adventure and want a thrill shivering timbers is your kinda ride but if your coming from far away to play here its a waste of money ...more kiddie rides than good adult THRILL rides.....
CORKSCREW: Yet another painful Arrow Coaster. 4/10
ZACH'S ZOOMER: I actually enjoy these junior woodies. 6/10
MAD MOUSE: Yikes! Way too overbraked and just plain BORING! 4/10
WOLVERINE WILDCAT: Not too bad, but nothing to get excited about. 6/10
SHIVERING TIMBERS: Finally, a really good ride at MA. Good airtime, laterals and everything to make it a good woodie. 9/10
OVERALL PARK RATING: 5/10
the worst Cedar Fair park.
Good park i love it . IT is perfect for the family and there is hardly any lines . It has 3 good coasters and the corkscrew is actually one of the smoother ones. I visted the park in 2008 and Thunderhawk is a great smooth ride and is a good addition to the park. If your looking for family fun with no lines then this park is for you.
Not a great park...but decent value for what you pay. a GREAT park for families with small children though. it DOES have a nice water park. Shivering timbers is a good ride, but thats about it...thunderhawk is terrible. Lines are never bad though. With little kids, this is a great buy, but for the thrill seeker...nothing special. just good for a quick coaster fix
