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. Cool Off at 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.
The waterpark has lots of big water slides too. 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 at Camp Snoopy.
5. Classic Rides
I loved that Michigan’s Adventure had the classic type of rides that you see at a festival but you have the 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 at Michigan’s Adventure
You can get a better value by purchasing an All-Season dining plan if you have a season pass. That way you can enjoy being at the park all day and don’t want to worry about planning meals.

I’m so sorry that you didn’t have a good experience during your visit! My kids are older so they had more rides to choose from. I would definitely suggest trying to let management know because I’m sure that they would appreciate your feedback. My brother had cerebral palsy and my heart goes out to you and your family.
To be honest we did not enjoy it. I came with my family and brought my kids and my yougest is 2 years old, we were just told in January that she has cerebral palsy and Periventricular leukomalacia so we wanted to make family memories before she got to bad to remeber anything or could not enjoy it. There was not much there for her that the big kids was not over running and they had 1 staff member running 3 rides. Half of the kids rides were not open and most games also and for what we payed we should have been able to enjoy it but we did not because there was not much open and most water freezing cuseing her to crap up and cry the whole time we were there.
