I actually called the day before and the morning of my visit there as it was a two-hour drive from where I was staying. I was told that "every coaster should be running fine," only to arrive at the park and find that both Cornball and Lost Coaster had sections of track removed. If you're going specifically for Lost Coaster, it might be wise to at least try calling ahead of time (although that didn't work well for me), and I'd still proceed with caution. There's plenty of cool stuff to do there, but they're clearly struggling to keep the place operational right now.

^ Based on that I definitely wouldn't trust the answer. The park does have a strong enough collection of rides to absorb some being down but it still shouldn't be that way.

Hello all, i was posting in regards to my upcoming visit this friday to the park. This will be my first time there and would like some info on what to do first, rides to skip out on, great places to eat (with reasonable prices) and great places to get souvenirs!

Based on my experience, a ride could close at any given point and not reopen (assuming it even opens for the day).

For that reason, I would recommend hitting Cornball Express first in the back seat since that ride was insanely good and a top 5 wooden coaster for me. The ride only ran for about a half hour during my visit due to an issue with the train.

After Cornball, I would hit Lost Coaster since that ride had one of the worst capacities I have ever seen on a coaster. When every other ride was a less than 5 minute wait, Lost Coaster had an hour wait. If you want any rerides on it, you should get them before the line forms. Make sure you ride going in reverse.

From that point, you shouldn't have any issues with lines, just closures.

^^ Make sure you do Fascination and the upcharge haunted house!

Really, Indiana Beach is pretty straightforward. All the places to eat are cheap, all the rides are good, you'll have fun. Don't go in with super high expectations or you may be disappointed, but be realistic and the place will be a lot of fun.

Playing Fascination is always a good decision.
