Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed reading them both!

For me, IB was an easy part to "get." I think back and I can't think of one single thing that I'd change- the park was just about perfect! I would love to have a park like that in the NJ area, so you really ought to reconsider that job interview in NC!

Then again, if you hop on a plane, IB is only an hour or two away. Time and time again, air travel proves itself to be a wonderful thing :)

janfrederick's avatar Hey Rob, just had to jump in on this love thread. IB was the highlight of a Cedar Point, Kennywood, PKI and IB trip a couple years back. My trips now focus on small parks thanks to IB. What a great place.

Good to hear! I've found that smaller parks like IB are infinitely more enjoyable than large corporate theme parks (except maybe the Orlando stuff.) Sure, SF parks can be great, but for a great day, I'll take IB, Wildwood or Knoebels ANY day!

Having read your TR makes me want to go back to Indiana Beach right now. That place is just amazing. Crossing that pier did to me exactly what it did to you, made ya giddy. Of course, I couldn't resist shaking the bridge either.

Everything you had to say brought back such huge smiles on my face. Cornball Express is just magnificent. I always wear my shirt to school and people laugh at the name. Yeah, I'm sure they wouldn't be laughing at the name if they would ever give it a try, which none of them will do.

I wasn't too impressed with Hoosier, good ride but nothing to write home about. I guess I rode it at a bad time. I wish I had taken a spin on the Yo-Yo. The Double Shot there is my favorite, especially that second time of airtime, so wonderful! Ahh...I can feel the tingle of IB already!

I forgot how much an All-Day pass was, but with ACE card, I got half off so it was the price for half day unlimited rides. I think I got about 15 rides or more on Cornball on the Saturday I went. There was no line but Hoosier had a line. Guess people couldn't find it or thought Hoosier looked more interesting, fools. Oh well, more rides for me!

Must. Go. To. Indiana. Beach. NOW! Great Trip Report!

I was told by a few people that Hoosier Hurricane wasn't all that, but I found it to be an excellent ride. Not a lot of airtime, but what the coaster lacked in negative g's, it more than made up for in speed. I like the "tour" of the park that you're treated to while on HH.

Its not one of my favorites, but it ranks higher than a lot of other coasters I've ridden recently. Cornball is clearly the "better" IB coaster, but HH is no slouch.

janfrederick's avatar I'll second you on that Rob. I had an absolute BLAST on HH. I especially love that swoop by the ferris wheel which is even better at night.

It has that great drop by the water too.

I'd write home about it. ;) *** Edited 6/4/2004 8:36:53 PM UTC by janfrederick***
