Indiana Beach Where will they Build next?

LoL where do you think that they will build next since they seem to be running out of room? My opinion is that they will fill in the beach area that is blocked off from the water anyways. I think they will fill that in and use it for another coaster or some kind of attraction. They could always make another beach near the newest water ride they just built. But what do you think

Never underestimate the powers that be at IB. They have to be the most creative people to squeeze in rides. They stack em, pack em, and mash them in there somehow.

In their eyes, they probably dont think they are out of room. :)

So true, one of these days there will be a coaster on top of hurricane and cornball. Now that would be fun to loop all three or even more coasters together.

They have been running out of room since 1990(maybe earlier), but have always found a place to sqeeze in a new flat ride and 3 coasters!

Tear down the Lost Coaster and build something worthwhile there.

Sorry but I personally think Lost Coaster should stay. I think it is a blast. It is a very unique ride and is so wild and wierd it is intersting. I love going backwards and dont find it to be very rough. Especially if you just relax and let your body move rather than trying to fight it. Maybe I am just a sado.

There is plenty of space for a ride or a few down by Double Shot and Big Flush for another ride. Especially if they take out the Volleyball court. There are plenty of other creative things they might be able to do if they wanted to be creative.

The beach will stay. It's the anchor for the whole park, their most hallowed tradition. But, they really do have plenty of room for additional rides.
l. As someone mentioned, the volleyball court and tanning beach are slated for replacement by two as yet undetermined rides.
2. Both miniature golf courses can easily be replaced by one ride each.
3. Down by the swings, they have room for four more pods out over the water for four more flat rides.
4. They have two bumper boat rides. They only need the bigger one. The smaller one occupies space that can be used for a ride.
5. Even though we get a kick out of that bizarre Gunboat ride, it's considered a low draw and occupies prime space which could be used for a ride.
6. Coming down the back side, they can start putting pods out over the water with entrances under Hurricane supports.

All of these combined offer spaces for 16 more rides. A new roller coaster will be a challenge, though. It might have to be mostly out over the water, which would make it unique.
As has been said, Indiana Beach designers are masters of spatial engineering. Rest assured they have at least a decade of surprises left.

Well according to the flyer, at the Enthusiast event at IB in August, Mr. Spackman will be speaking about what they plan on doing for 2004. So we should hopefully know by then.

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!

They don't need more room. The Gravity Group could squeeze in at least 3 more coasters. As for flat rides, they can do what the Cornball did, just build them on topof other rides.

Any idea where I can get a copy of the flier since it is not up on the ACE website nor on www.indianabeach.com site? I sent a request for info on their website just in case there is no other way to get it. I would love to go there for my 3rd time this year!

EDIT: Someone emailed it to me. Thanks!
