The Apex Parks Group has closed the Indiana Beach park, less than five years after acquiring it, according to a local news report.
Opened in 1926 by the Spackman family and run by them for more than 80 years, Indiana Beach occupied a peninsula in Lake Shafer on the Tippacanoe River, just north of Monticello, Indiana, about halfway between Indianapolis and Chicago.
Home to five roller coasters, including the Hoosier Hurricane and Cornball Express, Indiana Beach was very much a "midway"-style park, but like all parks, it had its devoted fans. Theme Park Insider trip report master AJ Hummel visited the park in 2014 and filed this report.
Any Indiana Beach fans here? If so, please feel welcome to pay your respects in the comments.Tweet
