Best time to get to Indiana Beach?

Friday, May 30, 2003 1:18 PM
I am going to Indiana Beach next Tuesday. What is the best time to get to the park? And, what is the best order to hit what rides? Also, are the bumper boats included in the Pay One Price admission?

The park opens at 11:00 so no need to get there any earlier. IB is never really crowded so take your time. You won't need a "plan of attack" but it's always fun to hit Cornball early and often.

And yes, the bumper boats are included in the POP. Frankenstein's Castle is not but do not miss this walk-through!

Wow, I'll be there next Tuesday, as well. It will be my first time. It doesn't sound like it is ever that crowded there, though.

How long of waits can I expect?

Don't expect any waits, except for LoCoSuMo maybe. And that would be a very little wait, and while waiting for lost coaster keep your ears open, they often ask for groups of 1,2 or 3 to help fill a car.

You will find that the park rules so much that you will want to plan to stay open to close (11am-10pm?)

The lines on a Tuesday in early June will be practically non-existent, you will probably walk on most rides. That includes the coasters! Cornball might back-up a little because there is only one train. The dark rides (Den of Lost Thieves and Lost Coaster) will probably have the "longest" wait because they have low capacity. Even those will probably be quick. If you plan to stay most of the day (and you should be there at night), you'll be able to hit every attraction many times.

Based on my experience with the park, crowds are found mainly on Friday nights and weekends in late June - early August. The park might be crowded if there is a company picnic or a school outing, but I would guess those are primarily on weekends. For obvious reasons, the waterpark will be busier during the day, and the boardwalk will be busier at night.

The bumper boats rule, they are actually physically ON Lake Shafer (the lake that the park is on). And you definately want to pay the extra $3 for the Frankenstein Castle.

Have fun!

Thanks everyone for answering. When I first made this topic, I was seriously expecting a lot of flaming. But, I am really surprised. If anyone happens to be at IB on Tuesday, look for 2 guys (me and my brother). I know I will be wearing a Marine Corps shirt of some sort. (I leave June 9th). And my brother might wear a Marine Corps shirt, since he is a Marine. But who knows.
