    Dirty and had an unsafe feel. Many rides were down, the remainder were staffed by people trying to keep more than one ride going so one would have to be shut down before another one opened. The Galaxi roller coaster, one of our favorites, is no more. A lot of the shops along the boardwalk are permanently closed. Bathroom toilets were filthy, many were full of toilet paper and waste and not flushing. On a hot summer day, you can imagine the smell. Now imagine the smell carrying over into the boardwalk. Not good. No water fountains anywhere, but generic bottled water available for $3. The Skyroom, once a wonderful place to dine, is definitely sub-par. Many of the delicious salads and entrees are no longer on the menu and what is left is not good, at least in our experience it wasn't. And service is sloooow. The Taco Shoppe, that serves possibly the most addicting tacos we have ever tasted, is still open and still maintains their high quality. It's a popular place though, with visitors and locals alike, so be prepared to stand in line (not an unreasonable time, but some people tend to freak if more than 4 or 5 people are waiting). As much as we love The Taco Shoppe, it's really not worth it to us to drive a little over two hours for dinner and Indiana Beach definitely isn't worth the drive. Since we aren't locals, we'd have to pay to even enter the park to eat. Sorry but $3.50/per just to get inside the gates isn't worth it. $26.95/per for walking around what looks like an almost abandoned, dirty, buggy, smelly and understaffed amusement park looking for a ride that's running definitely isn't worth it.

    Indiana Beach has been a yearly pilgrimage for our family since 1971. When the place was sold, it started to go into a decline that has worsened every year. With promises of clean ups, fresh paint, repaired rides, we'd come back, hoping against hope that things really had improved and in fairness, some of the accommodations within the park had been spruced up and there are some new cottages that look very nice. But sadly, the bad continues to far outweigh the good. I don't know how the place can possibly continue to operate as it is now.

    A great place for family fun offering thrilling rides, kiddie rides, a nice water-park, zip-lining, and a great atmosphere.
