The staff at Indiana Beach has been busy all winter preparing the Monticello amusement resort for its May 11 opening. The water swings have been moved back to their original location over the water, the Falling Star will be operational again, lighting for many of the rides along the boardwalk has been upgraded, and the buildings, structures and handrails have all gotten fresh coats of paint. Additionally, many of the rides are being repainted, but park officials say they’ve taken care to keep with the park’s nostalgic charm.
The Skyroom restaurant also has new carpet and furniture in place, and new seating and a bar have been added in the Roof Garden Lounge. It will also have a large screen TV in place for visitors to sit and watch sporting events. The park’s Beach House Inn, Boardwalk Motel and Penthouse Suites have been renovated as well. If camping is more your style, the campgrounds have been spruced up, too. Visit www.indianabeach.com for more information about the iconic northern Indiana amusement park.
