I just found this news from Lansing Michigan's State Journal. Nothing new really, just an article. Thought I'd pass it along.

I don't think its just you. I think that Indiana Beach overall has gotten way more attention over the last year than what it had at any other time in the past.

"...believed to be one of the longest, tallest wooden roller coasters in the world."
Just the way thats worded is funny. They make a roller coaster sound like some rare animal, like a giant squid, so they don't have any definite way of telling how large it is.

Yes that is humorous. Riders take the 100 foot plunge onto the edge of what is believed to be Lake Shafer. Hey they spelled Shafer right, unlike that USA Today article that spelled it "Schafer". Has anyone been to that Tulip deal in Holland? What is that?

Wabash, thanx for the article. I did the "tulip deal" a long time ago.....barely remember it! Mostly a neat little festival with all kinds of unique crafts and shows. No rides that I can remember. Greenfield Village is another great place to spend a day, esp. for the railfans out there! :)

The local Jornal and Courier did an article last week but I found they said it will be the first to have a elevator lift. But yet Scooby's Ghoster Coaster at PKI came before. At least they tried.
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!

I've been to the Holland Tulip Festival in Holland, Michigan many times. It's actually lots of fun. The tulip festival is like taking a weekend trip to "Holland". There are a couple windmills, blooming gardens of tulips everywhere, and the town has a big parade with participants dressed in costume...wooden shoes included! You can buy wooden shoes to wear (although you have to wear a couple pairs of thick woolen socks along with them). Lots of things to do. http://www.dutchvillage.com/

There is one in Pella Iowa as well, which I would say is a much better festival. Whereas Holland's has gone commercialized, Pella Iowa's is still back to the roots. The parades at both festivals are wonderful and if you get a chance, I would strongly suggest going to one. BTW they are next weekend (MAY 3-5th) .
Back to business, I think it's great that IB is getting so much publicity. Especially Lost Coaster.
