MIA trip info needed

Wednesday, June 16, 2004 5:14 PM
I will be heading to Michigans adventure july 31, aug 1 and 2. I was wondering a few things:

1.That weekend is a Canadian Holiday, do Americans get it off.

2.On the 31st, it's a Sat, how busy will it be. what about the Sun.

3.whats the easiest way to get to the park once you get on I31 going north.

In the future, you may want to read the second post in the forum... it answers many of your questions and directs you to sites that can answer the rest.

1. No holiday here

2. Late july/early august? Busy. Waterpark will be swamped.

3. Mapquest: www.mapquest.com

Three days at MiA is two days too many.

First off, don't go expecting Cedar Point or even Cedar Point Jr. Go expecting 2 O.K. steels, two O.K. woodies and the best kick butt monster airtime machine ever!! Spend half the day at the "park" go to the waterpark for a few hours and finish riding Shivering Timbers all night long. Repeat as long as wanted.

Then come back in two-three years when we have more steel to play with! :)

Of course, "busy" at MiA isn't too bad compared to some other parks. You sure don't need three days there. However, if your plans are already made, the Lake Michigan coast & surrounding area up by Muskegon is beautiful, so you can always check out other things in the area.

Are you sure Three days is to many at MIA? When I was there for Timberfest 2003, an hour was suffice to complete everything, maybe 3 would be premium to get in multiple rides on ST. I have to say after my 20 some ride on Sivering Timbers I could honestly careless if I ever rode it again. It wasn't bad, by anymeans, just not good enough for endless rides. Might I add BamBam, don't get you hopes up about MIA and ST because that is what I did, and when I went there I was HORRIBLY dissapointed. I'm not saying you will be but keep in mind that that park is flat piece of land with a couple of rides, a little pond and a LOT of cement.

Three days at Michigan's Adventure? Is this another one of those survivor challenges? ;)

It's a lot easier to fill a day there now that they've got the swan boats. :)

Aye, one day is enough. If you want to stay in the area, check out the beaches and coastline between Whitehall and Muskegon. :)

the plan actually was to go down sunday morning early and go to the park all day and if I got my fix in in one day come back that night, if not stay the night and go back monday. I don't know why I put all three days. was in a hurry typing. I have no expections of the park as I have read a lot of trip reports, but I have been wanting to ride timbers for a long time. So there probably will be a big case of anticipointment.

for my third question, I already went to map quest and it has me turning down like 4 roads off of I31. but i see ways that its like 2 turns to the park, but I don't know if those rodes can be taken, thats why I was asking everyone, cause they prob know what way they always take

Russell Rd Exit off US31 Take a left if coming from North 31. Take a right if coming from South 31. First traffic light is Riley Thompson Rd. take a left. The park entrance is on Riley Thompson. *** Edited 6/23/2004 6:03:25 PM UTC by MIAdvFan***

For a good second day, if you start out early from MIA you can make it to IB for the second wrist band session.
