A true assessment, but I just don't see it happening. Unfortunately.

I could very well see Michigan's Adventure getting some kind of drop tower since they're one of the largest parks in the country without one. That would give the park one thrill ride. A good steel coasters seems further out unfortunately based on the rate that Cedar Fair has been adding rides to the park.

Got it, I'll have low expectations...

Wait, is there a strategy for Fascination? :lmao:

Glad that wasn't closed, even if half the rest of the park was. Indiana Beach could be such a great place, but it's got so much work that needs done.

Haha true. I go with throw balls in as fast as possible and pray. Not sure if people can actually aim them.

If Indiana Beach improved their operations, I think they could be a smaller version of Knoebels in terms of their wooden coasters, weird rides, and long flat cycles.

Better operations would raise Indiana Beach from being just an "oddity" (a "boardwalk" in the wilds of Indiana) to a first-rate park. That being said, you can still have fun there.

Me and my wife enjoyed our time at Indiana Beach last summer. Sadly Lost coaster was closed. Steel Hawg was a blast and Cornball was not to shabby either. They only have a couple water slides but they are crazy fast and sketchy. The also have a crazy sketchy lazy river that my wife called the crazy river because the currents around those hairpin turns.

Is there any reason for Down Time's topper to be gone this year? I hope it returns soon.


A bit late on this one but the original yellow topper was damaged by a winter storm; it was starting to look pretty faded, anyway. It's been replaced by a new blue topper now that looks quite a bit nicer, IMO. I should have thought to snap a picture, but I'm sure someone will get one soon enough.

I agree the park was a lot of fun, but it's disappointing knowing they could have been so much better.

Haha the water park sounds about right after experiencing the ride park. I thought the speed slides I saw looked really awkward.

It did look cool being naked for a while but I'm glad they got a new topper.

I was in the Indiana area last week for work and was tempted to head up to Indiana Beach as, on my last visit (last August), they were having serious operations issues too and I didn't get to ride Cornball or Lost Coaster. The park has a ton of character and I can see why it's so popular with enthusiasts, so, hopefully, they can get it running optimally in the near future. The haunted castle was indeed great (I assume you're talking about the drop platform?), and I fully agree with the description of Steel Hawg's drop; it looks totally gut-wrenching but is surprisingly tame.
