Great report Cameron!

I too love IB. Couldn't make the event this year though.

Thanks for all the great comments, everyone!

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.

Indiana Beach is awesome. Just looking at these pictures makes me want to go back there.

I am definitely getting a campsite next year and spending like a weekend there.

Hey Cameron,

Any chance you can edit the TR and upload your photos to the TPR server? I'd love to link to your awesome TR's in our IB park Index, but right now the pics are all showing up as little red X's.

Thanks!

Cameron - Great TR

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.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Don't forget the interactive dark ride! The part where you go outside, turn around, and go right back inside is very fun and unique.

Thanks for the Photo TR! I've only been to Indiana Beach once (over the course of two days), but I absolutely fell in love with the place.

Done!

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.
