Park News - (8/9/19) The local news has issued an update regarding the 12-year-old boy that fell ill following a ride on the Hoosier Hurricane, and later passed away at a local hospital in June. At the time it was determined that there was nothing wrong with the coaster, and they suspected that he suffered from some pre-existing condition. Today the coroner issued their reports and was unable to determine any known cause at all for his death. There was no sign of any physical trauma, no injury, no congenital abnormalities, and no trace of any toxins.
(6/30/19) Bad news for Indiana Beach this week as the local news reports that a young boy died after riding the park’s Hoosier Hurricane ride on Thursday. It was through no fault of the ride in this case however, as it is believed that the 12-year-old suffered from some kind of pre-existing medical condition, though currently they are still awaiting the results from the autopsy.
2019 - Rocky’s Toy Box & Hoosier Hurricane Anniversary - (3/24/19) I never saw this article back in August, but the local news reported that Indiana Beach planned to create a new restaurant and “re-imagined” children’s area for the park’s 2019 season. The new kiddie area will be called Rocky’s Toy Box and feature a new train station with a ‘storytelling train’, while many other Kiddieland classics will be refreshed and some given new names. Hop-n-Drop will be renamed Leap Frog while The Whip will be renamed Wild Dragons, and Whale Rider will become Crazy Carp.
The park also posted on Facebook that they have refurbished the Hoosier Hurricane coaster for it’s 25th anniversary in 2019.
