Indiana Beach marks 80 summers of fun

In honor of Indiana Beach Amusement and Camp Resort's 80th anniversary, Gov. Mitch Daniels proclaimed Sunday, June 19, as "Indiana Beach Day" for all of Indiana. The day marks the first day the Indiana amusement park opened in 1926.

Wow... 80 years is quite an accomplishment. Congrats to the park and its owners, it really is a wonderful place!

The place has experienced incredible growth over the last decade. Well, since they built the Hoosier Hurricane anyway.

I'm hopeing for a new woodie in the next couple of years. If they could manage to ever fit another one in.

Here is another nice article that ran last Monday after IB's media event on June 4th.

I just happened to think of IB's new DVD that they put out for their 80th anniversay. It is about an hour long. It is available in the Emporium Gift Shop at Indiana Beach for $9.95 and it is an excellent program.

Oh, ya! Did anyone see the special deal for July 9 and 10?

No need to go on the east or west coast to hit a boardwalk type park.

We have one right here in the midwest. Indiana Beach truly is a great traditional park.

Dare I say I like it better than Holiday World? Yes.

I didn't see any deal for July but the deal for Sunday is awsome! 25 cent rides, hot dogs, and cokes after 6.

Ahh I love this place! Congrats IB.

The deal for July is at the bottom of the Journal and Courier article at the bottom just below where it says "Fund Raiser Planned".

If you are going to Indiana Beach, Kroger has discounts available. Also, ACE day at Indiana Beach is this Saturday, though it's already too late to sign up if you haven't done so. If you're there, say hit to me.

Stopped on the way to BeastBuzz on Thursday night. Got there about 1/2 hour before closing. No charge (or attendant for that matter) for park entry. We bought a few tickets and queued for Cornball. Operator says, "Just a few rides left, so save your tickets." You gotta love this place....

Parking = $0
Park entry = $0
4 laps on Cornball Express for free = Priceless
