Michigan's Adventure had record attendance in 2003 with a 14% increase, despite lower than normal attendance in in May, June and July. The park will get Cedar Point's swan boats for 2004, but will not get any significant improvements until the park can hook up to local water and sewer systems.

I had to chuckle at the use of percentages in the article. Never mind that a 3% increase at CP equals about 20% of MiA's annual attendance...it was 'only' 3 percent.
But otherwise, nicely done. Always nice to have the local paper cheering for ya.

great to hear that the park is doing well. It will draw a lot of people to the area with all the updates . great to hear.

The part about attributing the increase to a better experience and higher marks for service should make some light bulbs turn on elsewhere, you'd think.

I just hope they get the whole property tax and sewer system thing worked out so they can finnaly get the major rides that the park has needed for so long.

its amasing what a mega corporation can do with a little money (Cedar Fair) , now that its owned and operated by them , the park has gone into a complete transformation. It looks really good. There attendance is way up this year. The place really looks great. If you have the opurtunity to go to this park , you wont be diiaspointed.

MrScott, I tried to look that word up in the dictionary and I'm having trouble with it too. ;)
I'm happy with the way things seem to be going at the park. This is what they needed all along anyways. Cedar Fair knows how to run a successful park operation. There aren't many trees there either so it fits right in with their image. Sorry. ..ahem... Anyways, the park seems to have definitely turned the corner and is starting to develope more of an atmosphere and personality. The Jourdans made a smart business decision in that regards.
