I'm scared of Mad Mouse just by looking at that video! At 0:28 you can spot the support just pop up! I gotta get out to Little Ammericka sometime. Nice report Jeremie!

Indiana Beach Sunday June 13th

Postby Jerrykoala2112 » Mon Jun 28, 2010 10:13 am

So on Sunday June 13th, Cameron, Nathan (Kumba830), Griffin (GriffyTiffy), his Mama, and I went to Indiana Beach and had a smashing time! Most of the park is over water, which makes all the rides 100 times better. I don't have much to say right now, so let's get on to the video and pictures?


My Indiana Beach music video! A little treat for anyone who views the page ;)
1 [800x600].jpg
Welcome to Indiana Beach!
2 [800x600].jpg
It love how the park is on a boardwalk/pier type of thing!
3 [800x600].jpg
Hoosier Hurricane was a lot more fun then I thought it would be, better than Cornball.
4 [800x600].jpg
I've grown onto these Falling Stars in the last 2 years, they're lots of fun!
5 [800x600].jpg
Not the best splash battle, actually, it was pretty awful. But I still liked it for it's ghetto-ness!
6 [800x600].jpg
I forget the name of these "things" but they were everywhere!!!
7 [800x600].jpg
I do not want a piece of that...
8 [800x600].jpg
These people jump high! One of them did a belly flop into the lake :)
9 [800x600].jpg
Another high swinger jumper shot.
10 [800x600].jpg
If you line jump, you have to jump in with the carp.
11 [800x600].jpg
All of that brown track is Cornball Express!
12 [800x600].jpg
Cornball's drop, lots of airtime on here!
13 [800x600].jpg
Crows can fly?
14 [800x600].jpg
I give major props to this guy for finding the best fishing spot ever!
15 [800x600].jpg
I spy four tracks in one picture, can you see them?
16 [800x600].jpg
I would consider this a thrill ride. You swings rock forwards and backwards and you WILL fall out!
17 [800x600].jpg
Lots of hills, but not a lot of floater air.
18 [800x600].jpg
There is a mini golf course under Hoosier Hurricane's turn around, wasn't sure if it was included with admission.
19 [800x600].jpg
Paratrooper is also a great flat that hangs over the water...
20 [800x600].jpg
The oh so famous technology on Galaxi!
21 [800x600].jpg
Double Shot, surprisingly, gives you painful and awesome ejector air!
22 [800x600].jpg
This would be the park's Schwarzkopf roller coaster. Tig'rr.
23 [800x600].jpg
Steel Hawg is far away from everything... sucks, I know.
24 [800x600].jpg
Galaxi was and still is my favorite ride at Indiana Beach, I rode it 11 times that day :)
25 [800x600].jpg
How many rides can you spot in this shot?
26 [800x600].jpg
Steel Hawg at sundown makes it better!
27 [800x600].jpg
Cornball has many drops filled with awesome sauce!
28 [800x600].jpg
Steel Hawg does have some WTF moments....
29 [800x600].jpg
The drop is insane! I'm still waiting for a wooden roller coaster to have a vertical drop.
30 [800x600].jpg
Isn't Double Shot purty?
31 [800x600].jpg
Yum yum! This ride really is great!
32 [800x600].jpg
The park is really different at night than the day. More colorful too.
33 [800x600].jpg
Not sure if you can see it well, but something's there! Good-bye Indiana Beach! Till next time. (And thanks for reading everyone!)

Dayum, that is one ghetto control box on Galaxi ;)

IB does look like a very nice park, sucks to hear HH doesnt have a lot of air though, it certainly looks like it could provide a lot!

Steel Hawg looks pretty good too, if the trim wasn't there you'd probably be getting insane air time on that drop.

I am pretty sure it is included if you buy the pop band.

And it looks like the giant wheel got an led lighting package.

Adam, the one mini golf course near Ideal Beach is included, but not Island Golf, which is in Hurricane's turn around. Great Pictures! Indiana Beach is my home park for 8 months out of the year (I go to Purdue). I'd be glad to be anybody's interpreter there as things can be very confusing there. Did you by chance go in Frankenstein's Castle? I absolutely LOVE IT!

Noah's Ark - Mini Photo TR

Postby Jerrykoala2112 » Sat Jul 24, 2010 8:16 pm

Okay, so I am on my mini Wisconsin Dells trip, and today (July 24th) I went to Noah's Ark and had an amazing time! The water slide collection is fantastic! Lots of family rafts, countless tube slides, 2 wave pools, and 2 lazy rivers. The only thing that this park lacks are high speed body slides (Only the Scorpion's Tail and the other speed slide are the only ones here...) As I don't know what to say now, let's get onto the pictures!
1.jpg
Here are some of the tube slides offered in the park. Although they don't do much, they did seem to have the shortest waits!
2.jpg
This is Dark Voyage, the totally enclosed family raft. It didn't do much either, but the layout was pretty mysterious!
3.jpg
Okay, on the far right is Time Warp, which I didn't have a chance to ride... The line exceeded over an hour. On the left are the Bermuda Triangle slides. MY OH MY! I've never had more of an out of control feeling on anything like that before! I recommend riding them whenever you get a visit!
4.jpg
Time Warp did look awesome, but the line was just too long to be worth it. It does have a steep drop into the toilet bowl though ;)
6.jpg
I do apologize if trees are in the way of my photos. Many of the slides are pretty well hidden or too hard to make photos of. But this fine mess is the world's longest Water Coaster! Black Anaconda! It is probably the most intense things I've ridden in a very long time. If it was an actual coaster, definitely would be in my Top 10! Very out of control and many, many hills! I waited more than 45 minutes for it, but for sure worth it!
7.jpg
I know you guys are only reading this because of Scorpion's Tail! It is America's only looping water slide. I did not get a chance to ride it because the line was over 2 hours, but boy it does look intense!
8.jpg
It's a little hard to see, but at the bottom of the first drop is an escape hatch, where if people don't make it high enough over the loop, they'll ROLL BACK. There is also an escape hatch at the top of the loop, in case you get stuck at the top! Oh yeah, you need to be at least 90 pounds to ride.
9.jpg
Can you believe that this family raft is trimmed at the top?! Believe it. There are jets after the first drop that slow you down before you experience much airtime!
10.jpg
Final picture! I just want to say thanks to Noah's Ark for keeping some of the older slides! There are new ones (Which seem to have HUGE waits) and the old ones (which were walk ons on a Saturday.) Although, it is America's largest water park, and walking from on side of the park to the other will hurt your feet!

If only they could get a new credit too!

I wonder what your next Photo TR will be? ;)

Noah's Ark looks awesome, but can we really consider that a looping waterslide? Its more like a steep helix slide. The only waterslide I will ever consider looping is the one that was at Action Park.
