CCI has updated their website with construction pictures of Cornball Express, the new coaster at Indiana Beach. In addition, they have posted three new on-ride videos of The Boss, Ghostrider, and Raven.
Check them out at Custom Coasters International.

Cornball really is stuffed in there! When I saw the rendering at IAAPA, I asked Mike Graham (of model coaster fame) why so much of the ride looked like it was on stilts. Turns out the ride is over all kinds of paths, roads, other rides and water!

If you ever seen the area in question at Indiana Beach, the weaving of CE is even more crazy than that of Hoosier Hurricane, it's predecessor.

I love my homestate and its wonderful CCI showcase! Yes this Cornball thing is unbelievable. I was just there in August, and couldn't for the life of me see this thing actually happening! IB is really a great little park, and I wish I had gone there more often when I lived an hour away.

Jeff, is Mike Graham now working at CCI? I heard that he was thinking about working there.

Man! I'm so excited...Indiana Beach is only 2 hours away from me and I've been there EVERY year for 10 years straight, and Hurricane is still unbelievable! I can't wait to go there on opening day and ride Cornball Express!
Way back when the design came out, I asked...how are they going to do this?? The way they had it on the design was crazy! Right above Kiddyland and sweeping Lake Schafer! It will definatelly be another CCI masterpiece!
*After Seeing Pictures*
Wow! I know right where those pictures are, and I have to say, I didn't realise how big of an area that is going to cover! It seemed much more condense on the rendering. I'll make sure to take plenty of pictures this season...last year's did not come out very well.
