I WILL NEVER EVER GO TO MICHIGAN'S ADVENTURE IF THE TEMPERATURE IS OVER 80 DEGREES!!!

There, got that out of my system. It was a really hot day (94 degrees) and NO shade. I got 5 laps on Timbers though, bringing the total to 13. Not a good day to come, as the park was PACKED. I didn't dare head to the waterpark, as there was definatley no room.

I now have the right to say, I AM a part-owner (via CBuzz) of MiA, not only because I have ridden EVERYTHING at the park (yes, all the kiddie rides too), and I have over 100 laps on a roller coaster.

The only thing to cool off on that had a short line was log-flume. Other than that, if you WANTED to wait an hour for Adventure Falls, go ahead. Get a headache waiting in the hot sun. See if I care.

Auto-spiels are now on:

ZACH'S ZOOMER

WOLVERINE WILDCAT

SHIVERING TIMBERS

TIMBERTOWN RAILWAY

And if you don't know the version of the auto-spiel song that the substitute Timbers operator and me wrote:

"Summer's over I'm not in the mood to have yourself some fun, at Michigan's Advnture, nothing here for everyone! Getting stuck on the waterslide, Shivering Timbers is a really boring ride (it's not), so little fun that you can say no, don't go, Michigan's Adventure, it's a whole, BUMMER OF FUN!"

Sorry, yes, my park has been invaded by Cedar Fair, which is a good yet bad thing. The ride-ops no longer have any fun, so you have to talk to them, ask them if they like their job, etc. So far, only 1 out of every 3 employees likes to ride Shivering Timbers.

Yes it was rode one lap on Timbers and Mad Mouse then went to water park.

It was very packed and all the tubes were in use by the time I left the water park. (layed lazly in the lazy river for over an hour and did a few slides).

I hate that auto-spiel: It's one of the main reason I didn't ride Timbers as much as I usally do! Rode it under ten times! What really erks me about the speil is when it say it's a "Classic Out-and-Back," It's not a classic Out and Back it's more like an Out and Back on crack! I really wanted to cut the speaker wires!!!

Oh dear god it was hot yesterday! I happened to be at MIA too......the waterpark wasn't too bad though......the lines weren't horrendous, but a bit long, and there was a major shortage of tubes.

I should be typing my TR tonight also.

There was defantly a shortage of tubes. The Lazy river at each exit had to atleast 25-30 people waiting to get a tube.

If a simple spiel that you can ignore is going to keep you from riding a coaster, that is really pathetic and childish.

I a bit different than a typical spiel, it sounds like one of the old commercials that they use to run. It's a really cheesy song that sounds like an advertisement, I’m at the park and own a season pass I don't need to hear a lame song that sounds like something you would put in a really lame commercial!

Of the parks I have been to I have never heard a speil that had a song in it after the typical stuff that a ride-op would say/the stuff on the warning sign before the entrance.

I'm not some child that sat there and threw a fit. I rode it, I said nothing about not riding! That day was a more of a lazy park day (slow paced).

All I was saying is that the annoying song at the end of spiel helped contribute to me not riding it as much as I usually do in a typical day there. I would rather have human interaction with the ride-ops, instead of hearing a song and spiel that states facts on the ride.

You weren’t there, you don't know the whole situation, so keep your mindless drivel to your self!
