Tim’s Travel Tips: Michigan’s Adventure

by Tim Joseph

I have heard of this place but have yet to actually visit. My cousin tells me it is a lot of fun. Michigan’s Adventure is an amusement park in Muskegon, MI. According to Wikipedia they have 53 rides total which includes 7 roller coasters. Their newest attraction is the Thunderhawk, a suspended looping coaster that has been relocated from Geauga Lake in Ohio. it is Michigan’s first suspended looping roller coaster.

There are also plenty of rides for the smaller kids, such as the “Winky Whale” or the always classic ferris wheel called the “Giant Gondola Wheel.” In addition to all this they have a water park which is open from noon to 7pm daily. At $25, this is a bargain right in our own back yard.

For more information please contact the park at (231) 766-3377
