Cedar Fair Entertainment
Park News - (6/22/21)According to several reports it seems that there was a minor roller coaster train collision on Shivering Timbers at Michigan’s Adventure over the weekend. While I’ve seen a report claim that the trains hit harder than they did, most reports claim that the Blue train was sitting in the brake run and released to roll into the station while the Green train was still parked in the loading position, resulting in a mild collision. Trains don’t normally roll into the station very fast, but the resulting collision does appear to have caused some damage to the tracks at the rear end of the station.
(5/28/21) Cedar Fair’s problem with staffing issues have struck again, this time at Michigan’s Adventure. According to the local news the park has now confirmed that the Amusement Park and Water Park will both only be able to open 5-days a week this summer season. Much like what is happening at Cedar Point in June, Michigan’s Adventure will now be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout the entire 2021 Summer season.
(1/30/21) Michigan’s Adventure has now set May 29 as the park’s official opening date for the 2021 season.
2021 - Camp Snoopy - (5/30/21) A whole series of images showing off the new Camp Snoopy land at MIchigan's Adventure can be seen today at Mlive. The park did a good job putting this new kiddie area together well, with plenty of Peanuts character theming all around, so check it out.
(2/21/21) Michigan’s Adventure has confirmed that when they open the gates to guests once again on May 29th their new Camp Snoopy area will be ready to open as well. Originally planned to open in 2020, the new Camp Snoopy area will feature the Beagle Scout Acres climb and play structure plus five new family rides: Camp Bus, Beagle Scout Lookout, Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies, Peanuts Trailblazers, Woodstock Express.
While Michigan’s Adventure managed to open their waterpark in 2020, they were not allowed to open the main amusement park, so this will be the first time guests can enjoy the park since the 2019 season. The park will follow the same rules this year that we saw the other Cedar Fair parks put into effect last year with mandatory reservations required to visit, temperature screenings for all guests and face masks and social distancing will be required at all times in the park. The rules on face masks and distancing will also be enforced while in line for attractions at the waterpark as well, but you don’t have to wear a mask while in the water.
(8/16/19) As rumored, Michigan’s Adventure announced they would be adding a Camp Snoopy kiddie area to the park in 2020, that would take up the site of the soon-to-be-removed Be-Bop Blvd car ride. Camp Snoopy will feature five family rides, all new themeing, shade areas and the Woodstock Express, a new mini coaster.
The other attractions will be Beagle Scout Lookout (Samba Balloon Tower ride), Mud Buggies (Bounce Around), Camp Bus (Crazy Bus) and Trail Blazers (Family Whip). There will also be a large play structure.
(8/10/19) Earlier this week the park confirmed that the Be-Bop Blvd. car ride would be leaving after this weekend. The car ride does take up a rather sizable piece of land, so the early word on the replacement is that the park may add a Planet/Camp Snoopy play area, that would allow for many of the nearby kids rides to be connected together into one larger themed kiddie area. If this proves to be true, look for some of the old kiddie rides to be rethemed, and possibly some older rides moved around, while other new rides are added into the mix.
