The Concept of a new hotel or campground at Michigan's Adventure

The Gold Rush indoor park will not stop them from possibly building one. Kinzel said himself they were going to pay close attention to that park to see if an indoor water park would be successful. So if Gold Rush is successful it actually helps MI's chance of getting an indoor water park.

MiA's attendance would double to a million with a hypercoaster and quadruple to two million with a B&M coaster. Cedar Unfair is just scared that if they finally gave MiA the expansion budget they DESERVE, they'd have to shut Cedar Point down because nobody would ever EVER go there again.

Dey betta RECO-NIZE!

I think MIA needs some attention. I finally got to visit last year, and its a good medium size park with a good waterpark and a friendy atmosphere. Judging by how crowded it was that day, and how far I drove to get there, I definately think at minimum a campground would do this park some good. Then they can put in a couple of flats, another steel coaster, and jet ski rentals with the revenue! :)

^Well, no 7 does not make it funnier, but 8 on the other hand makes it hilarious.

-CO, shall we dine together again this year at Coaster Craze. :) Maybe they can give ERT in the wave pool this year... wait, they don't have a wave pool at VF do they? Man that park must suck. ;)

Hoek, aren't you getting tired of asking the same question over and over, just re-worded?

I am. This topic takes up needless space on my computer screen.

Who's forcing you to read and reply in any of the MiA threads he's started?

I don't think they will build a camp ground at MA, nor do I think that they need one. However, I do think a large hotel would be a good idea, but, it would have to be better than other hotels in the area, offer more extras, yet still be online with pricing in the area, or people will just drive into Muskegon for lodging. I don't think the indoor water park is needed, but, other types of activities can be included. (Spa, health club, exclusive resort stuff.)

There are plenty of campgrounds in the area already. In fact, there is a campground right at the highway exit for the park. Which has been there for decades. And, there is a state campground, and several county parks within a 10 to 20 minute drive of MA.

I don't see a campground being very useful, unless it is the cleanest, most fabulous camp ground in the world. Or, people will just do a Simon Cowell and say "whoopie...I'm not impressed." and stay somewhere else.

Unless, of course, they just so happen to be one of the half-million folks walking through MiA's gates...in which case it may be the same old crap, but much more convenient crap. Hmmm.

In fact, people have even been spotted paying a little more for the 'privilege' of not having to move their backsides.

Just a comment on people not wanting to move their buts. There are a lot of things that cost extra at MA for guest needs. If you go there, you see a lot of it not being used.

An example would be those hundreds of rafts that sit unused in the raft rental area at the water park, while people stand in line for a half hour waiting for the free ones. Or those surf side cabanas that cost 50 bucks a day. most unused.

And, a lot of people don't even bother to pay for the lockers, leaving their stuff laying where ever they think no one will walk off with it. (I heard someone walked off with a guys pants, shirt, and underwear!)

So, do you think these people would cough up the big bucks Cedar fair would charge for accomadations? maybe they would for Cedar Point. Not MA. The only peoplr who might are those who have money to burn. Not your avarage MA visitor who has just saved up enough money for one trip.

Most visitors live in Michigan. No accomadations needed.
