What is in the future for Michigans Adventure. They really need a new steel coaster.

While I lent my crystal ball to the neighbors I have heard that a stipulation of Cedar Fair buying the park was that they had to install a planned hyper in 2002.
"Ooo. They have the Internet on computers now."

Cedar Fair said they had plans for a hyper. We will just have to wait

Went to MiA today, this park is really for little kids. Hope CP fixes it up good! Shivering Timbers ROCKS!

I remember reading something online (newspaper article, perhaps?) about the "big, new steel coaster" being postponed by at least a year. I'm not counting on any sort of hypercoaster next year at MA.

I have a feeling a Boomerang will replace the Corkscrew in the next few years. This years park map said a new train ride would be going in by Adventure Falls. Then again, the go-karts that were listed as coming soon on last year's map were not listed this year.

I think the first major ride that Cedar Fair decides to install is a rapids ride. MIA's most popuar attraction is the waterpark, so why not expand to the amusement park in a "wet" way.
Im guessing 2003 will be theyear for a Power tower style ride or a large steel coaster.
And I realistically don't see Corkscrew going anywhere anytime soon.....

Living in the Northern portion of the Indiana state, I am 1 to 5 hours from several parks, including Great America, Cedar Point, Worlds of Adventure, Kings Islands, Holiday world, Indiana Beach, Kentucky Kingdon and Michigan's Adventure. I would probably make more of a point to hit MIA if there was one more really good reason to go. MIA and SFKK are my 2 least visited parks in the 5 hour drive radius and the farthest away. But I must say that Shivering Timbers is one great coaster. I would love it even if the had another good wooden coaster, but an interesting hyper would be nice also. Hopefully something a little different than the Milleneum Force and Magnum XL 200.

I agree with you John, and now that I think about it, a Rapids Ride was one of Cedar Fair's first additions to Dorney Park too. Also, the park needs more shows and flat rides, as when Cedar Fair finally spends some big money, and the park has a big increase in visitors, they need to have a decent, well rounded park.
