Michigan's Adventure is a small amusement park owned by Cedar Fair, located near Lake Michigan here in Michigan.
The park is small, but packed with fun. It features 6 roller coasters, of which 3 are ridable by kids as small as 45" tall. I think they allow smaller kids, but that was our son's size when we went back in June.
Aside from Roller Coasters, there are several kids rides, and a few aimed at older kids & adults. Overall, there were not many rides our son couldn't go on.
In addition to the regular park, there is a fantastic water park, which is included in your admission to the park. The slogan is 2 parks for the price of 1. The price is a bit high for kids, as it's 1 price for everyone over the age of 2. I would love to see it drop to a lower rate for kids under a certain height.
The park is VERY clean, however, and kept in tip top shape. Cedar Fair has put some money into upgrades for rides, and buildings. It's not the Deerpark Funland I remember it as when I was a child, but that's good. DPF was tiny, and had only a small handful of rides.
Since Michigan's Adventure was bought out, they have added at least 1 roller coaster, several water slides, and a few regular rides. New this year was Grand Rapids- a white water rafting type ride which will soak some people in he boat. I got off relatively dry, which was nice, since we went on it late at night.
The hours of the park are rather brief, as well. I would love to stay there much later in the day. The park only stays open until 9pm even on the latest of days.
Cotton Candy is Cedar Fair's marketing ploy this year, with it only costing $.25! That's a great price for any snack, let alone a tasty one such as cotton candy. I know Cedar Point is doing the same thing, but I do not know if it's all of Cedar Fair's parks.
Lines are often short, which is nice. If it happens to rain during your stay, ride it out if you can. Most of the park empties out during rain and ride shut downs. We held out for an hour, the rain disappeared, the sun was out, and the entire rest of the trip, we didn't wait in a single line.
This is a good sized park for a 1 day visit. Park prices are roughly $25 per person, I believe, but we got in cheaper because our local radio station held a promotion- the tickets were $12 each was all, so all 4 of us got into the park for under $50!
If you are ever out near Muskegon, Michigan in the summer, this is a wonderful stop to make.
