We went to Indiana Beach yesterday, and rode some rides!
Normally that wouldn't be a big deal for anyone living around here. But if you've been following this blog for a while, you know we're finally able to be able to do this. Sure, we could've gone last year or even the year before, but we didn't. Before that, we wouldn't fit on any of the rides.
Heh, so, we went, and ... it was awesome. We had a ton of room even. Which of course made the rough wooden roller coasters feel even rougher. ;)
If you've never been to IB, wow, they have some awesome wooden coasters there -- the Hoosier Hurricane and the Cornball Express. Both very rough, well designed wooden coasters. There's also the Lost Coaster of Superstition Mountain... a very unique coaster that starts with an elevator, and then plunges into a very twisty, droppy, mostly dark insane trip. Very fun.
It was also nice just walking around there and having it be "no big deal". The walk up and down the boardwalk used to feel like a hike, but now it's just ... nothing.
