No official press release has been announced from Indiana Beach, but the Operations Manager Ruth Davis confirmed that they have been looking at a Flying Scooter. I'm almost 100% sure they'll add this in 2004. They are also considering a few other non-coaster possibilities. I'll pass along more details when they're available.
Black 7 said:WOW, just imagine them putting in a set that can really snap well. I can think of only one place to put it, right on the lake like the YoYo. It would be a amazing ride.
The same thought occurred to me. Given that for me that Yo-Yo is the scariest ride in the park (swinging out over water like that drills right into my one major phobia), a similar installation of flyers would probably scare the living daylights out of me... ;)
NO! They can't take the Paratrooper!!! :( Waa! With the water below and all the clanking parts, it's by far the scariest ride in the park for ME. Plus it's one of the most photogenic...colorful during the day and all lit up at night. And it's been there forever.
But Flyers would be awesome...I think it's time for another platform to be built on the lake! :)

I can see wanting to replace the Paratrooper because it ran through parts. However, aquiring parts shouldn't be a problem as Dartron provides parts for all Hrubetz rides and there are lots of these models running without parts supply problems throughtout the country. At the show IB was looking at this and a Disk'O. I think the Zamperla ride would have looked great at night on the boardwalk, but I am happy to see them investing in cap ex regardless.
People seem to also forget that there is plenty of space down by the space shot ride for them to add a few smaller rides. There is another possibility there.
What I dont really get is why they can't build out into the lake which is a man made lake anyway. It just does not make sense as the lake was not there naturally. If it were then it would make sense to not destroy the lake environment.
Ahhh cool, thanks dude. Those would fit in nicely at IB...although a top spin or another ride of that nature seems like it would be a little more exciting, but any new flat at IB is always neat, it's been a while since the last one, Double Shot.
