|This is Shivering Timbers, the coaster hubby says I must 'experience.' ;)|
Every year when we are discussing our plans though, my husband brings up Michigan's Adventure, an amusement park he loved when he was a boy. He has seen some of the world's tallest and fastest roller coasters (and watched me and the kids ride the ones he was scared to ;) ), and swears Shivering Timbers is the best wooden roller coaster ever. Looking at in pictures does not do it justice, he says (though I think it is impressive in pictures). Oh no, it's more than what it looks like in a photo...it's an experience.
I believe him. And this year I'm going to find out firsthand when we surprise the kiddos with a mini-trip to the park. Michigan's Adventure is the largest amusement and water park in the state with over 60 rides and attractions (including 7 roller coasters). It also has a section for just the little ones to enjoy. The water park has three wave pools, tube slides, body slides, the Funnel of Fear and a family play area. The best thing? You get admission to both for one low price ($29 per person, toddlers 2 and under free). I think that price can't be beat.
Catered events are also available at Michigan's Adventure. If you're looking for an employee event, or summer day out, it could be well worth checking into.
I'll do a write-up when we go. I'm looking forward to it, actually (the visit and the write-up). ;)
I'll be catching up with everyone when I get back from D.C., this is my long weekend to go see my new granddaughter (I'm leaving first thing in the morning...finally, woo hoo!!).
In the meantime, I'm wishing you all a fabulous weekend and wondering a couple of things:
