A visit to Ponce City Market in Atlanta offers up hours of adventure. This gigantic 2,000,000+ sq. ft building offers dining, shopping, office and living space. The closer you get to the property, the more you can process the magnitude of it’s size. It’s ENORMOUS!
I’m a wimp when it comes to scary things but I knew that I had to face my fears when I was given the opportunity to take a behind the scenes tour of the Dent Schoolhouse. Not only is the Dent Schoolhouse known as Cincinnati’s scariest haunted house, but it’s known for being one of the top haunted houses in the nation!
One of the best parts about my crazy adventures and travels, are the people that I get to meet along the way. I had the privilege of riding Cedar Point’s newest thrill ride Valravn on opening night….. but I had the even greater privilege of meeting Violet while in line for the ride.
Kansas City has a lot to offer for the whole family. I really didn’t know what to expect during my first visit. I knew that Kansas City was known for bbq but I discovered that there is a whole lot more!
When you visit the Cincinnati Metro area, there is so much to see and do for families.
The hardest choice you will have to make when you step into Kalahari Indoor Waterpark is deciding what area of the waterpark to go to first.
When you visit Gatlinburg, you have a lot of options to choose from for entertainment. Ober Gatlinburg offers so much to do year round and the beauty is that you can do it all at one location. You can easily spend hours there between all of the adventures and activities.
So what are your options for an Ober Gatlinburg adventure?
A few years ago, my family had the opportunity to be extras on the show “Bert The Conqueror” that aired on The Travel Channel while it was filming at Holiday World.
It was our first time visiting the park and we’ve wanted to return ever since. We were even more excited to return to experience the newest coaster and the waterpark because the only water ride open during our 1st visit was the one we were extras on.
There are several FREE things that Holiday World offers that are rare when it comes to amusement parks.
Michigan’s Adventure is a smaller amusement park compared to some of the other Cedar Fair Amusement Parks but it still has a LOT to offer for the whole family. Ironically, we never visited Michigan’s Adventure when we lived in Michigan and just visited for the 1st time once we lived out of state.
Here is what we enjoyed the most during our visit.
Thunderhawk is a suspended steel roller coaster that simulates flight with speeds of 50 mph and heights of 120 feet. The ride is smooth and the flips are fun! We liked this one so much that we rode it a few times in a row.
2. Shivering Timbers
Shivering Timbers is the longest wooden roller coaster in Michigan! The variety of hills and speeds that reach 65mph make this ride a must during your visit.
3. Mad Mouse and Corkscrew
Mad Mouse is a fun ride that seats 4 people in a car with quick turns and hills. The Corkscrew coaster ride time goes by really fast with speeds up to 45mph and two inversions.
3. Wildwater Adventure Waterpark!
The waterpark at Michigan’s Adventure honestly went above and beyond my expectations. I was really impressed with all of the waterslide options in the park. Your admission ticket to Michigan’s Adventure includes the waterpark which gives you double the fun.
There are rides for the whole family here. There are several areas for smaller kids to swim and play along with three separate wave pools that each offer small, medium or large sized waves.
This waterpark has a great amount of big water slides. You have to carry your own tube up for some of the slides which also doubles as a cardio workout.
Make sure that you allow for enough time to check out all of the slides because the waterpark closes earlier than the regular park.
4. Rides for all ages
If you have younger kids you will have lots of rides to choose from.
5. Classic Rides
I loved that Michigan’s Adventure had the classic type of rides that you see at a festival but you have comfort of knowing that everything is permanently secured to the ground.
6. Short Lines
During our visit we never waited more than 30 minutes for a ride which gave us more time to see more of the park and go back to the rides we enjoyed.
7. Dining Plan Options
You can get a better value by purchasing an All day dining plan if you plan on being at the park all day and don’t want to worry about planning meals.
We had a great time at Michigan’s Adventure. It’s definitely worth checking out if you are visiting West Michigan.
You can find out more about Michigan’s Adventure from their website.

I’ve stayed both onsite and offsite when I’ve visited Cedar Point Amusement Park over the years. I have to say that I feel like staying onsite does really make a difference.
