Anyone ever been to this? It is going on right now in Cleveland. I was thinking of taking my family. According to the website there's a coaster plus a lot of other stuff.

Its great for kids, but they have other attractions you gotta pay for, like fun houses and stuff. The last i remember. it has neen a while since i have been there. The Coaster is nothing to get excited about. It is either an extremely compact looper or it is a coaster similar to the wildcat at Cedar point. So it you think this coaster is gonna be sweet well, lets say it might be one of the more enjoyable rides, but nothing special. The shows and things that they offer might be good to see, but it is like more of a glorified fair carnival than anything else. I dont really know what it will run you in the wallet, but if it is decently priced and you need to get the kids out of the house than go for it, nothing better than riding some rides this time of year up here.

I went last year...just a big carnival. last year they had a spinning coaster and a coaster sorta like WildCat. Log ride was fun. Alot of spin and pukes. I had fun but nothing to get overly excited today...*sings the song*

As for some advice:
Mt. Dew Cans in the NE Ohio area have Buy one get one free. Marcs and AAA have $15 tickets.
Go during the early hours and you can ride, ride, ride, ride, and ride some more with out getting off anything because the place is dead pretty early.
Weekends ESPECIALLY nights are VERY VERY busy. Last year it was a 1 1/2 hour wait for the spinning coaster.
I definetly recommend visiting it with the ton of carnival rides they have. The run everything at basically Mach 5 (compared to a normal theme park running their rides at Mach 1.) Then after they make you throw up at Mach 5 they run all(most) all their rides backwards for some VERY long cycles. It's a BLAST!!
LOTS of carnival food and some pretty easy midway games. They have a petting zoo, tons of rides for wee little ones, etc.
They have Top Spin this year, Frisbee, and a few other new rides. I'll be going up tomorrow and updating the below link (it's tough to update it with my first kid on the way), but it should help you out (the info is from last year): Lots of IX Indoor Amusement Park Stuff
Enjoy and have a blast!

I went a few years ago, and had a blast. Maybe I'll have to hit it again this time around. Riding a Zipper indoors was incredible. With a ceiling above you, it was even more disorienting then usual, as it became almost impossible to tell which way was up.
Highly recommended if you love flats.

Rumor has it that it is a different carnival operator this year, or another operator has come in to help out. Perhaps that will mean less duplication, using two units from two shows rather than two units from the same show.

Ah, duplication at the IX Amusement park. I remember one year, maybe about 1995, the park had both a Ring of Fire and a Super Loops.
Same ride? No, but yes. I believe they had two Yo-Yos that same year, though.
