Oh no... The Twister. It's all coming back to me now. When I was younger, I went to IB and there was a ride I rode that spun me like no other. And it is the only ride to this day that has ever caused me to lose my lunch on the midway. For many years I thought it was the Tilt-O-Whirl, but seeing this movie completely sparked my memory. This was the ride. Thanks for the video. I think I feel sick now.

They seem to put all of the spin & puke rides in those same two spots where the tilt-a-whirl is and where the Chaos was. I guess because of the water spigot location that is between those 2 rides.

I, for one, am quite excited about whatever 2008 may bring to IB.

New blog post today. The only line that stood out to me was:

Nothing quite like a Fall in Indiana.

Fall is italicized on the blog.

So far we have:
Head over heels
A real steal
Nothing quite like a fall in Indiana.

Any more ideas?

Yes, we had
CRAZY from the "just checking around" entry. That looks as if it were intended to be a clue also.

I'm not sure but I think I just found a clue to the ride on the cover of Sgt. Pepper also.

^What in the heck is Sgt. Pepper. There is a crazy train that goes upside down. They aren't in amusement parks, and it would probably be used. The only problem is with "Fall". It's doesn't really fall though. It also depends if that ride would fit that spot.

This is a Larson Crazy Train, or Hi-Roller. That ride stinks though!

The other idea I'm thinking is the S&S Sky Swatter. It's being removed from SFNE, it's "falls", it's the only one in America, it's a crazy type of ride, and it does go upside down.

This is quite fun! *** Edited 10/26/2007 4:44:00 PM UTC by Spinout*** *** Edited 10/26/2007 4:45:05 PM UTC by Spinout***

Same here. I didn't think I'd have a reason to say that for at least another 15 or 20 years. Wow ;)

Ok. Sky Swatter makes me think of S&S, which sounds like F&F which then makes me remember "F"all begins with "F" which makes me remember S&S had an F&F which was Frequent Faller. Or was it it IR?

Hmmm...Compact Layout. Compact Park. Vertical and Narrow like a Boardwalk. Head over Heels. Heels over Head and all over again. Am I on to something?

P.S. - I miss the Twister...kind of. ;) (4 to 5 g's x 250+ pounds = not so comfy.) *** Edited 10/27/2007 3:33:48 AM UTC by CastleKing*** *** Edited 10/27/2007 3:36:12 AM UTC by CastleKing***

Fall
Head over Heels
Steal (someones heart)
I am getting a valentine effect. Does anybody remember the rides that were suggested for Holiday World when people thought they might have been adding a valentines section?

I think it will be some sort of Steele coaster. Like Boomerang... You start the ride with a Fall and it is a real Steele And you will go head over heels (inversion). Now where to put it.

I thought the "real steal" meant that it was used. It could be a Euro-Fighter.

You don't have to be old to know what Sgt. Pepper is. Just like music from the 60's like the Beatles.

Please say it is a intamin drop tower with a program like S:TOP at Six Flags St. Louis.

Probably not sincd Indiana Beach already has a Double Shot. I'm thinking some kind of steel coaster, perhaps some kind of shuttle with inversions because of the "head over heels" and "all over again" comments. A shuttle would make sense since one could probably be squeezed into the park with the shuffling of a few rides, or building over them entirely. A steel coaster with inversions is one thing missing from IB, and ironically a great park to the south as well.

Oh I hope it is a steel coaster! That is something Indiana really lacks in. I do only live about 40 minutes from Indiana Beach, so maybe I can go down there this off season and see if I can get some construction photos. Just think, if it is indeed a steel coaster, maybe Holiday World will follow with one in the next year or so? They aren't exactly rivals, being at different ends of this long state and all...Indiana Beach attracting the northern/northwest part of the state along with Chicago and Holiday World getting the Louisville and Evansville audiences along with the rest of the southern part of the state...however, Holiday World seemed to jump on the CCI wagon after Indiana Beach installed Hoosier Hurricane :)

What if Indiana Beach bought Geauga Lake's boomerang...is that possible?

Well they gave us the "Cornfield of Dreams" commercial and said they like to keep those imaginations going. So lets see, there was a coaster, flyers, a magic carpet, and a water slide. I got it!

It's going to be a Flying water coaster themed to a magic carpet. ;)
