New Cornball Express photos show overwhelming structure

Posted Wednesday, March 28, 2001 7:07 AM | Contributed by Glitch01

Construction is going fast at Indiana Beach! The kiddyland seems to be totally covered by Cornball Express's structure now. Four new photos were sent in by Ace Region 8 Assistant Reps. The station, helix, and ending brakes are the highlight of these pictures.

Check them out here.

(Coaster Archive is currently down, so I setup a subpage for Cornball Express construction.)

Wow, great pictures!

No wonder they said that it would be a tight fit for this thing.

This coaster may be small as far as size and speed go, but with a layout like this, and with so many near misses and brushes with the surrounding attractions and buildings, it's going to make for one heck of a ride!

AMAZING! I can't wait for that first ride. And how cool it will be when trains occasionally pass each other on the lift!!

Is it just me or does Cornball Express fit all too well into the structure of Hoosier Hurricane? Maybe they planned this sort of ahead of time? I've always thought that the track between the top of the lift and the first drop was a little strange (though cool and very unique!). Just a thought :)

Also, did you notice the turn that is inside Hoosier Hurricane's lift hill supports is not banked at all! Should be a fun "jerk" when you get up there!

As for what Coastercraver said...could be, sounds possible! The coasters are 7 years apart, but still that doesn't mean it could be pre-arranged...dunno!

I will ask Tom about Coastercraver's question the next time I see him. As far as I know, this was not planned ahead of time. BTW, I sent Tom a link to your webpage, I'm sure he will be pleased with all the work you have done.

Sounds good! And that is a very good question!

Thanks for sending the link to my site! Hopefully I can get the site back up soon!

The other thing to think about is the fact that Hoosier Hurricanes structure is steel so the supports are far more spaced apart giving the opportunity to fit track between the supports. If Hoosier was a wood structure it would be much more complicated. Oh yeah, great pics.

wow those are some great pics Thanks once again scott. I was so surprised when they announced cornball express because They had so much problems getting permits for double shot. Hopefully this is a sign that indiana beach could be going mainland pretty soon.

That would be awesome. I never knew they had problems getting permits for Double Shot? Hmm...

Anyways, I have a feeling if they get another CCI, it will be pretty big and go accross the suspension bridge in some of the older parking lot space. That's just an idea...I won't like having to walk over there, but hey, 3 CCI's in one park. (Yeah, I know that other Big Chiefs place has 4 ;))

Oh, by going across the suspension bridge...I didn't mean the coaster to actually go across the lake, lol, I meant for the whole thing to be built on the other side of the bridge.

I e-mailed Indiana about "planning ahead" with the Hurricane's lift hill.

Below is his reply.

No, it was not planned. The smooth integration is due to the CCI design and engineering work. Being the designer and builder of the Hurricane, CCI had the knowledge to put the 2 coasters together. No one even had any thoughts of a second coaster in 1994 and where it might be located.
