Park News - (9/21/18) Bad news from Indiana Beach it seems. According to a Screamscape reader an incident took place on the park's Tig'rr coaster on Saturday around 5pm. I'm told the returning train failed to stop in the brakes and collided with a second train sitting in the loading area. No major injuries seemed to be reported at the time, and I don't know how fast the train was moving when it struck the other one, but if I had to guess Tig'rr may be closed for the rest of the season while this gets checked out.
(8/4/18) I’m told the Dragon Wagon coaster has been closed for a few weeks now and will likely not reopen. Sister park, Fantasy Island near Niagara Falls just announced a new coaster for 2019 that looks identical to Dragon Wagon, so I’m guessing the Indiana Beach coaster will be moved to Fantasy Island, opening up the location for something new to come in 2019. Anyone local heard rumors about what may be on the way for 2019?
(7/25/18) The local news reports that the Hoosier Hurricane wooden coaster was shut down on Sunday afternoon after a tree limb broke free, falling onto the coaster before coming into contact with the passing coaster train. Fortunately no one was hurt and there does not appear to be any damage done to the coaster train or track at this time. The coaster will remain closed until they can get it officially re-inspected. They hoped to have this done as soon as possible, though I haven't heard if it has reopened yet or not.
