Indeed. Well, this update takes far less patience, because it's already time for...
Day 11: Indiana Dreamin'
Just like in 2016, I finished my Cedar Point trip with a visit to Indiana Beach. That's mainly because it's only an hour detour from the most direct route back home from Sandusky, but a little bit because I missed out on two rides last time: Rocky's Rapids and Lost Coaster of Superstition Mountain.
There's not much to the log flume, but it still does the job quite well. Log flumes are good as long as you have water in it *cough cough cough Magic Mountain cough ahem*.
Phew, sorry about that coughing fit, I must be coming down with the black lung, just like the miners who work under Superstition Mountain.
Yesssss! Nailed the segue!
Lost Coaster of Superstition Mountain is a unique ride. It's a little bit dark ride, a little bit coaster. I got to ride backwards, which is pretty trippy with all the tight turns. Really great.
I took advantage of an offer only good in August that if you buy a 2019 season pass, you get to go once in 2018 for free. Bonus, the season pass is exactly the same price as a one-day ticket! So yep, I have an Indiana Beach season pass next year, and since Six Flags Great America has that new coaster next year, I think I'll drop by for a bit.
Other than that, there's not much that's changed since 2016. The park looks a lot cleaner, and I just enjoyed doing all the same things as last time. Cornball Express is still an airtime buffet, Fascination is still fascinating, Steel Hawg is still twisty, the haunted house is still creepy, the pirate dark ride is still bizarre, and the skyride over the whole park is still allowing photos.
Hittin' the beach!
I've not been on this bridge before. Last time I parked on the north side.
Finally getting to ride this!
Hmm, I don't think they're now serving anything....
Finally got on the log flume too!
This is Coasterbill's happy place. It is, in fact, a bar in a Skyride station.
I found my beach in Indiana!
See? It's a beach. A...lake... beach. Yeah.
And down there is the #1 reason to come to this park.
Great report! Were all of the coasters actually operating?
I really liked the atmosphere of Indiana Beach, but 5 of the 6 coasters were closed by nightfall when I visited last year. Hoosier Hurricane ran like a champ, but Steel Hawg was evaced off of the midcourse, Cornball operated for a half hour total, Lost Coaster gave up at the end of the night, and neither Tig'rr nor the kiddie coaster even opened.

Awesome report. I love the skyride and dark rides at this park. I used to go to the park a lot when I was younger but only recently made my first visit in a while last summer. Personally I don’t think the park ever should of added that new kidddie coaster but instead kept Galaxy. The Dragon Coaster was closed the entire day during my visit last year.
