MICHIGAN’S ADVENTURE ADDS A TIMELESS CLASSIC!
MUSKEGON, Mich., December 17, 2012 – Michigan’s Adventure Amusement Park has announced plans to add a timeless classic to its thrilling collection of rides and attractions.
A flying scooter attraction will be added to Michigan’s largest amusement park and waterpark in 2013. The flying scooter attraction is a classic, interactive flying ride which appeals to all ages. Guests will board the flying vehicles and rotate faster and faster fanning out over a large area. The flying vehicles have a stationary rear wing and a moveable front wing which allows the guest to control their flight experience.
“We are extremely excited about adding another family ride to our collection of attractions. We believe that families will find this to be a perfect addition to their park experience,” said Camille Jourden-Mark, Vice-President and General Manager of Michigan’s Adventure. “Our guests will love it. They will want to ride the flying scooter attraction again and again!”
Guests who purchase season passes will be able to ride over and over while developing their piloting skills. The experience on the flying scooter attraction will become more intense as riders become more adept at maneuvering the scooters. Season passes to Michigan’s Adventure are available through January 13 and guests may take advantage of a “buy now, pay later” offer available only online. Season passes are a wonderful gift idea for adventurous families.
“This will be a very fun summer at Michigan’s Adventure,” said Jourden-Mark. “We will also be observing the 25th anniversary of Wolverine Wildcat and the 15th anniversary of Shivering Timbers. The 2013 season is going to be a great time to visit the park”
Overall, Michigan’s Adventure has more than 60 rides and attractions including seven roller coasters. Since opening in 1998, Shivering Timbers has been consistently ranked as one of the finest wooden roller coasters in the world by Amusement Today’s Golden Tickets Awards.
