BeemerBoy: Indy Beach and Blackpool do have a lot in common, but I don't think it's fair to compare them outright .. simply because Blackpool is about 10 times the size, and is by the sea (and as much as I love Lake Shafer, it certainly can't compete with the sea!).
I will say that Indy Beach is probably the closest you can get to Blackpool within the US.
John: I'm always up for skipping work - especially in Summer! I won't be able to take two weeks off next year since I'll be busy on The Game, but some extended weekends will certainly be on the books.
Although I've only made it to IB once, I loved that place. Still one of my favorite parks. The flats are just incredible as is Frankenstein's Castle and the three woodies. Yes I enjoyed Lost Coaster of Superstition Mountain.

The reason I initially did it the other way was to sprinkle the photos in with the text. You must have looked at the thread on Friday night when I had to (briefly) take Buzzneon off-line to research another network problem I was having.
