Michigan Adventure ticket prices...

I was talking with a former Cedar Point employee, and MA might be getting the Cedar Fair axe, going the route of Geauga Lake.

This employee, did he sell Lemon Chill by any chance?

Yeah, but you didn't sell Lemon Chill I assume.

I was very good friends with three of the Lemon Chill guys, and one Lemon Chill Girl who worked at Cedar Point! They told me almost everything about Gatekeeper ten years before it was announced! True story. ;)

(PLEASE NOTE the winkie face.)

Duly noted. What happened to the Dippin Dots guy? I thought he was in on everything.

Ever since Dippin' Dots stopped marketing themselves as "The Ice Cream of the Future", they have not been able to time travel in order to tell us what the future holds. or so I was told be a guy who sold them on the midways.

My friend Kathe used to say: Dippin' Dots are the ice cream of the future? What does that tell us about the future? That it's over-priced and tastes bad.

I actually know two former employees from Cedar Point. One is a former Meijer co-worker. She worked at the Cinema, and used to tell me how boring it was having to say the same thing every day. But, she liked working there, and she said the employees were fun for the most part. I actually saw her there once, and she was just coming on her shift, looked bored already. But, she said it was heaven compared to working for Meijer. I did that for 15 years, and I can imagine.

My other friend said he did audits? He's an older guy. His name is Jerry. He said that most of the work he did was behind the scenes, but mentioned that he could see the top thrill dragster from his office window, and he and his co-workers would take bets to see if it would open, or have a roll-back. He said he did work out in the park once in a while, but very seldom.


I didn't do it! I swear!!

Jerry is not your friend. ;)

Actually ApolloAndy, I just saw Jerry last weekend. We are both members of a camp ground in Michigan. It was Mardi Gras weekend, and I went to his camper for dinner. I have known him for a couple years, I just recently learned that he worked for Cedar Point. He also has his opinion of what happened to Geauga Lake. I don't agree.

This thread has me in stitches guys. Thanks for a few good laughs.

Timber rider instead of having the Mardi Gras weekend at the trailer park, why not pitch that to Michigan's Adventure. It could be like Geauga Lake's Oktoberfest. I mean beer, outside food vendors and a great time. Then again it would be very profitable and maybe Cedar Fair will see the errors of their ways.

Correct me if I'm wrong, Timber, but I'd bet MA would in no way be hosting the Mardi Gras weekend for your Michigan campground! Could be festive, but.... yeah, no way, right? ;)

Laugh it up guys. But the Mardi Gras weekend at our campground sells out every year. We had over 1,000 people last year and close to that this year. Not bad for a camp ground that is in the middle of nowhere. And, I certainly would not want Cedar Fair to host it. they would probably charge $50.00 to park the car, $200.00 a day to camp, and, have an outrageous up-charge for any event that might occur, and charge almost what it regularly costs to camp for a hot dog. No thanks.

Also, our campground has a strict no one under 18 policy. So, we can score Mardi Gras beads however we chose. Why it's always packed and fun!

Timber-Rider, going back up to a post you said above. That was NEVER Cedar Fair's intention with the park. That is not why they bought it and I am not sure who you were talking with (not that they'd really know this information anyway and it was obviously made up). Besides, it's been open for how many years now since the Cedar Fair acquisition? Geauga Lake was open for 3 years and nothing was really added to it because it was still going downhill thanks to the rapid expansion Six Flags did with it earlier in the decade. Michigan's Adventure has had loads of money pumped into it, Thunderhawk, Funnel of Fear, Grand Rapids, RipCord, Be-Bop Blvd, HydroBlaster, why would the chain spend money on this stuff just to tear it all down? They don't want to sell it either. Remember when Cedar Fair was trying to sell parks back in 2009 but then decided not to? What parks were for sale? Worlds of Fun, Valleyfair & California's Great America....Michigan's Adventure wasn't even on the list, and that was because of it's profitability.

Timber-Rider said:

There was also a plan during the Six Flags sell off, that Cedar Fair wanted to buy Great America. Which would eventually have Cedar Fair owning almost every major park in the midwest.



Once again, where do you get your information? And don't tell me the "news" this time because I know this for a FACT. When Six Flags was looking into selling properties, Great America was NEVER one that was for sale and Cedar Fair wasn't interested in it. They were interested in Magic Mountain, which was for sale and they did make an offer on it, but after awhile Six Flags decided not to sell it. That was the only property that Cedar Fair was interested in because Six Flags wasn't even accepting any offers on Great America because they didn't want to get rid of it.

The only other Six Flags parks for sale during that time were all sold (none of them to Cedar Fair)
-Darien Lake
-Elitch Gardens
-WaterWorld
-WildWaves & Enchanted Village
-Wyandot Lake
-Splashtown

How did we get on all this from a question about ticket prices? It even switched to Mardi Gras and campgrounds....

Girls in leather shorts or campground Mardi Gras are they better bang for your buck than a $28 dollar michigans adventure ticket?

That's where it's going.
