On behalf of Indiana Beach...

Sunday, September 9, 2001 5:18 PM
It will be many months until PTC’s fly over thrillseekers and skim Lake Shafer again. Indiana Beach closed its inaugural CornBall season today as it hosted UAW Kokomo for a private outing.

On behalf of Tom Spackman, Sr., Tom Spackman, Jr., and Ruth Davis, many thanks to those who made the trip to experience the CornBall Express and helped to make a great season at the Beach. Special thanks to those who made their first visits and those who posted trip reports on various message boards. They enjoy reading them immensely. Ruth would use excerpts for the IB activities page, and Tom, Jr. keeps them in a special notebook---no doubt to remind himself of this special coaster he had built for IB. CornBall was a pleasant surprise for us all!

While nothing new may be planned for IB’s next season, look forward to general improvements in the park’s infrastructure and retracking/reniforcement of the Hoosier Hurricane’s first drop.

Best regards,

Dave (my 25th IB summer) Wynn

It is always a bummer when Labor Day comes!! I have been a visitor of IB for 27 years--usually several times a season and I can't begin to describe all the years of good fun that they have provided. The Spackman family has a certain talent for making their guests feel truly welcome-again and again. They offer a more personal touch than the larger parks. From Ohio, I make several trips to Monticello each summer for that same fun. It does not cost in gas to get there from here what it would cost to get into a larger park an hour away!! Indiana Beach is Tops in our family. We're all looking forward to next year!!

I went for the first time this year after driving by many many times, I love the park atmosphere and anyplace with two great CCI's is ok by me.

Does CCI know how to make a bad coaster?

Parks closing on Labor Day is a bummer. I guess I am used to parks being open through October. The beginning of September just seems premature but if the profits dont justify  then they have to call it quits for the season.

"The Peoples Elbow" or "The Spinaroonie?. Cant decide which is the most electrifying move in sports entertainment!!! LOL

Ever since I was a little kid I wished that IB would get a big coaster, but I thought that it was impossible because of the small land mass possessed by IB. Now they have 2 CCI coasters and 4 coasters all together plus a number of other great rides they have added over the last few years. I believe that there are no limits to what they can do. I just hope that those 2 ladies don't make them tear the Cornball down.

I came aaaall the way out from California this past summer. I wouldn't have even considered going to the park without the information and buzz that I got here. Of all the huge  corp parks I visited on my trip, I had the most fun at IB with it's wonderful Cornball Express. Now that I know what to expect, my next and perhaps all future coaster excursions will primarily involve small quirky parks like IB. I'll be making the trip again next summer...this time I will make sure to visit Holiday World and on up to Shivering Timbers too. Thanks for the treat.

Yeeee Haaawwww!

CCI have made these trips worth taking! And with each great new ride, many of us are finding a newfound love in parks that used to get set aside. If it weren't for Timbers, I wouldn't have gone to MIA yet!
