Indiana Beach off -season tour scheduled for enthusiasts

Posted Monday, February 18, 2002 5:12 AM | Contributed by Carol

Enthusiasts are invited to join General Manager Tom Spackman Jr. and the IN-KY-WV Region of ACE in an off-season tour of Indiana Beach, including a sneak peak at Lost Coaster of Superstition Mountain, Saturday March 9th, 2002.

Check-in and registration for the tour will be from 9 to 10 a.m. in the north parking lot, near the main entrance. Attendees will receive a badge at check-in. The tour will begin at preciously 10 a.m., no one will be admitted after this time.

Indiana Beach is still in their off-season mode and as such there will be no restrooms available and no buildings open. The tour will last about and hour and a half.

This tour is free to any ACE member with a valid membership card. Non-members are asked to make a $2.00 (minimum) donation to the ACE Preservation Fund. Please, contact us to have your name added to the list. Also, feel free to contact us with any questions you may have concerning the tour. For non-members, your donation will be collected at the park.

Contact Scott & Carol Holmes for more information.

rollergator's avatar Scott and Carol ROCK!  Together with Sean (Hi Sean), and Jason, it goes back to the thread about "Why join ACE"...why?  Because of the PEOPLE!  I only wish our winter weather could be magically transported up to the IN/OH region, then I could move there and we could ALL coast all year...oh well, in the meantime, GO to this event if you can.  The Spackmans (much like the Kochs, Knoebels and Bowens) not only appreciate the coasters, they appreciate those that love 'em...enthusiasts...and we don't get that many opportunities to really thank them "up close and personal".  GO if you can, you'll be glad you did.  Thanks again Carol, Scott, hope to see you soon - IB is a must-hit park this year for us!

Rollergator,

 Thanks dude! =:^)

 I won't be able to make this tour due to my work times, but it does sounds like fun.  As it looks right now, that coaster could very well end up being #400 for me.

Wow, this is definitely a great oppurtunity and rollergator defined why you should join ACE in the best way possible.
Too bad its too far away for me to go to this event, hope there is a good crowd of Non-ACErs so we can get some more money in the preservation fund.

Man, what is with Indiana and their awesome parks!  I love the hospitality set forth by Holiday World, Indiana Beach and Fun Spot.

I will definitely be going to this event...I can't wait to see this wacky little coaster, should be great!   A must do park for my SRM trip.

Joe (*HUGE* fan of IB)

Sean, #400? Wow. I don't know if I can attend, but this is quite tempting. It's always great to visit my home state, but seeing a park behind the scenes is a treat. Hmmm....the real question is whether I can get up at 5 am and drive!

Jeff's avatar Well Sean, if you didn't spend all kinds of time traveling all over the rest of the country to ride, maybe you could've gone. Are you going to have time off for the media events this spring or what? ;)

I should be going, but I'm not a 100 percent sure.  I might have bowling regionals that day.  But I have my fingers crossed.

You can hear the laughter, you can hear the mighty roar. From the brickyard down in Indy to the white Chicago shore. It's a rollin', twistin', turnin' and might we both suggest. You get you fanny ridin' on the Cornball Express!

Jeff,

LOL! Yea, I need to stop that.

 As for the media events, yep, my bosses know my status and usually let me have that time off. I save my 'personal days' for when I really need them.  Also, I donate blood every 8 weeks and get 4 hours time off that I can add up to take more time off. Add that to the 4 days off a week I get from my work scheadule and you get.............well, too much free time.

First off, I would like to thank rollergator for the high praise. It's an honor to be mentioned in the same sentence as the great Sean F!

Secondly, I would like to remind everyone that you must send us an email to be able to attend the tour.

Last but not least, I'm sooooooo jealous of Mr F trekking all over to ride coasters! =8 ^ ) I never get to go anywhere, sigh.

Carol,

 Awww shucks. I'm speechless. =:^)

 You never get to go anywhere? It seems that there was a time when I used to run into you at EVERY park I went to. Remember that?

Jeff,

 Don't know about dedication but rather a odd addiction. Look at it this way, I also get a needle in the arm for a rush, but my rush comes after the bruise heals.
