Haha...that's probably true. What do you think it will be Dave? Or do you know? ;)

A little off topic. But, I never understood the phrase "head over heals". I think for most people their head is always over thier heals except when they are upside down.

off topic, but spot on! I've always wondered the same. This one, too: when two planes almost collide, why do they call it a "near-miss"? IT's a near-HIT!

btw Jason, it wasn't Lost Coaster weekend this year, it was the Legend of the Shafer Shipwreck.

next year, I hear it's a Pink Floyd theme: "When the Tig'rrs Broke Free"

Heres another hint from the blog posted today. I'm completely confused now:

"I can promise you this, the coming summer at Indiana Beach will be everything you remember it being … but there’ll be something special that you’ll have never seen before … anywhere!"

Just a reminder - woohooboy posted this on Page 1, and I've yet to see *anything* that would disqualify this "never-before-seen" ride.

*Note: Zipfile download, clip so short it isn't even necessary.

"I can promise you this, the coming summer at Indiana Beach will be everything you remember it being..."

Translation: You'll be able to enjoy all your favorite attractions [except Chaos] at IB next summer.

…but there’ll be something special that you’ll have never seen before … anywhere!"

Translation: what we're adding next year can't be found anywhere else.

How is that at all confusing?

It's on the Internet, and I've just seen it. LoL I think that's kind of stupid getting a ride that hasn't been at another park, or carnival before. Look at some of these big and gigantic roller coasters that they spent tons of money like Kingda Ka, and they turn out to be broke too much. Kinzel said that Top Thrill Dragster was a flop. The basic point is that I don't think it's too smart anymore to buy the first of any ride because you never know how the ride is.

There is a small roller coaster that was at the Ohio State Fair. It was called the G-Force. It would drop, and then the ride would go back and forth. Guess what? That carnival company is selling that ride. That was the first of that type ride. It's made by ARM, and it was just introduced this year. The capacity is bad, and it breaks down enough.

Look at X, and how people complain about that one being broke down, or only having one train because the other one is out of commision. I don't think that Indiana Beach is making a smart move by buying something that isn't proven that it works.

I've heard that one of the Moser Rides at a carnival company barely worked, and NAME (North American Midway Entertainment) sued Moser because it wasn't working right, and it was always broke down. I think it was the Speed Flip. I'm not 100% sure, but I think it was Moser, and that ride. That looks intense as this ride is. I go on there Spring Tower though, and that works fine.

You can get a new ride, without getting new technology. the Intamin Launch coasters were a new technology. X was a new technology. G-Force was just a crappy idea. I rode it and litteraly said, "That's it?"

My point is, you can reinvent the wheel, just don't mess with the engine.

I would love it if they decided to get the blade wing. However they mention on the blog that someone sent them a ride with dimensions and they did not think it was right for this year. Take a wild guess who sent that, and what ride it was!

"Something special we've never seen before...anywhere!"

500 foot coaster! ha Nah, but I'm excited for the announcement, whenever that will be.

Has anyone installed a maverick delta 28 the standup version?

That doesn't seem like it would be comfortable. I don't know if I'd want to ride that.

In the new blog today there is something that may or may not be a clue. If it is, here's my theory. It says:

"I’ll give THIRTEEN to one odds that it’ll definitely be fun!

Get out your pen and paper, call Opie & Forest Gump, and see what you can put together."

Opie & Forest Gump = Ron Howard & Tom Hanks

Thirteen = Ron Howard directed & Tom Hanks was in Apollo 13

My theory is the new ride will have something to do with a rocket or space. There are a few different space themed flat rides out there already. Like this. *** Edited 11/1/2007 9:41:51 PM UTC by Jason Hammond***

They also capitalize AMIGOS and BETS. In addition the post is called the CawVinci Code... I can't help but think those may be clues as well... Or its nothing at all... I wonder when they are planning on announcing the new attraction?
Thursday, November 1, 2007 6:35 PM just got REALLY cold in here ;)

You can rearrange "amigo & bets" to spell "ib game toss"

Is there a Corn Hole game at Indiana Beach yet?

Yes, there is (I think).

Mamoosh, turn a heater on already!!! My bet is this blog entry was just to stir up chatter and confusion. A lot of chatter about IB next year was dying and their PR needed to spark it a little. If this is a clue for next year, maybe Hammond is right and it does have something to do with a apace shuttle. However, I don't think it would have anything to do with the new ride. Maybe the new video for the action theater.

With the clues I have I see a 113' Vekoma Flying Tilt coaster...
Friday, November 2, 2007 8:11 AM
Oh yeah, I forgot they said it was something no one has seen before. Why 113'? I'd be shocked if it was a tilt coaster, but cool idea.

"For those of you still having fun with yesterday’s clue/game, here’s something that might make it easier: Mr. Mojo Risin’ says use these blanks to figure things out (I tried putting in dashes and spaces 3 times and it won't let me put in double spaces. So, the following numbers indicate how many characters are in each word.) 2 4 1 2 1 3 7!"

I got nothin. I looked at the song lyrics for L.A.Woman and didn't see anything that fit, but according to Wiki, Mr. Mojo Risin' is an alias for Jim Morrison as well. So, it could potentialy be in any of their songs. Or, it might be something completely different.
