Indiana Beach June, 13 2010
______________________________________
After Holiwood Nights I'm back in Indiana the next week for another First time trip to a park. What better way to visit than with Cameron, Jeremie, Griffin, and Mother Griffin!
For those of you not familiar with the park. It's like someone took the best of the classic flat rides, a few really fun coasters, a big heap of WTF atmosphere, and put it all on a tiny boardwalk. There you have it, one of the best theme parks around!

Cornball [# 50] was great, front or back it didn't matter you always got ejector :airtime:. Hoosier Hurricane really didn't have any air time though [except the front row on the double up], but it was a really fun ride due to it's location and it swooping over the lake. Sadly Lost coaster was closed. I'll probably be going back soon to ride it though.
Steel Hawg was one of many ride at IB where you get off and you just have a puzzled look on your face. It was surprisingly smooth and I loved the downward heart-line roll. But the surprise was Galaxi, It was actually really fun smooth ride. With plenty of air time in the back car on the first two drops.

I also fell in love with the Yo-Yo and the Paratrooper. It was my first time on both for a ride of it's type and they were both genius!

The verdict is that Indiana Beach is an awesome little park and it has a great atmosphere. It gets an A+ in my books!
[Don't forget to do the haunt/walk-through]

Weird thing... Like everywhere you went around the park there were Mayflies. On the sides of building, on the handrails, on the boardwalk... Everywhere! Although I was told by Cameron that this is not a common thing.

We ended our night on Hurricane. Oh, and thumbs up to the two ride OP's at the ride that whole evening. They were really energetic and raced each-other to see who could check the restraints first, and they really got the guest involved!

Good-Bye Indiana Beach! I'll be back for sure some time soon!

This is the 2nd TR I have seen of this place this week. The one thing that sticks out in my mind, which I noticed in your video, and a photo in the other TR, was the water falling from around the YO YO. It's little touches like this that make a park awesome. One of these days I will make it out that way and check this joint out. Also I youtubed a POV of Steel Hawg and I will admit I never thought it would appeal to me. After seeing the video a few times it looks like quite a fun little ride, something more "smaller" parks should look into.
Life is a lemon and I want my money back????

Great report (and great pictures!) Nathan!!! Not sure what your favorite coaster was, but mine was sure Galaxi :lover: I was just really bummed that Lost Coaster wasn't open... *maybe another time!*

^ Yeah - it was a shame that Lost Coaster was down, but at least we knew about it in advance. One of the great things about Indiana Beach is that even with one of their major rides down, we still didn't run out of stuff to do for the entire 9 hours we were there. It was a fun day, with great weather and perfect crowds. There certainly is an interesting mix of people down there..

Oh and Nathan, cool video.

Thanks for the trip report! I love love love Indiana Beach! Just a fun place, and proof that you don't need a 200+ foot hypercoaster to make a park fun!

Germany June 28 - July 14, 2010
___________________________________________
About a month ago I made a two week trip to Germany. I stayed with a friend and his family in the Hannover region and had an amazing time!
You can read my daily blog from the trip right HERE.

Daily Life and Berlin

My experiences in Germany were so awesome. Yes I had been taking German the last few years. So I sort of knew what to expect, although not everything was as I thought.
I realized that they ride bikes a LOT more than we do here in the states[Possibly why we are so damn fat?] and they also use rail transportation a ton. While my whole life here in the states I had not used the train once, I took the train almost every other day while I was in Germany. I mean, why can't we have a well run rail system with stops in almost every decently sized city that doesn't cost a buttload to ride[Because we probably don't realize the benefits]?
Also, their fridges are super small, they love "Chicago gangsters", and are way ahead in fashion.

As for Berlin, it's not like skyscrapers and such[which I though it would be]. The city was mainly very low laying, but spread out. There were a lot of cool sights and history that I got to learn about. The main railway station there is the biggest in Europe and you can definitely tell. Then, before we left, I got to experience some European shops in one of the malls downtown.

The girl in this photo couldn't speak english very well, so most of them time I would have to struggle to tell her something. She ended up being one of my favorite people I met during the trip.
