I love Indiana Beach. It's one of my favorite parks with it's
quirky atmosphere and great rides so after hearing that they were going
to be open after Labor Day the thought was that it would be a fantastic
time to go since chances are the park would be dead. So Carrie, Bond
and I headed back to Indiana, crashed over at Brian's house and then headed
to the park with Andy tagging along with all of us.
I normally park in Indiana Beach's South lot and cross the suspension bridge
into the park but this time we decided to give the North Lot a try and were
greeted with this gorgeous vista as we approached the park.
Up until this year Indiana Beach had been owned and operated by the Spackman
Family for seventy-five years. To everyone's surprise half the way
through last winter they announced that they had sold the park, hotels and
campground to Morgan RV Resorts. I was curious to see what changes
they made and if they were going to keep Indiana Beach's quirkiness that
endears it to so many.
Once our admissions were purchased and all day ride wristband's on we stumbled
through the gates with our eyes skyward instead on where we were walking
since Steel Hawg commanded our attention.
