Indiana Beach unveils the All American Triple Loop roller coaster

The Indiana Beach amusement park has long told Hoosiers, “There’s more than corn in Indiana.” We agree, and now there’s something different: a triple-loop roller coaster debuting in May 2024. A few lucky people will be among the first in Indiana to ride the new roller coaster the day before the park officially opens. Here’s what we know about it.

What new attraction is at the Indiana Beach amusement park?

Indiana Beach will unveil the All American Triple Loop Roller Coaster in May 2024, a 36-seat steel roller coaster that promises an adrenaline rush thanks to three loops on the track and impressive G-force, according to a press release.

How much G-force does the All American Triple Loop have?

Indiana Beach’s All American Triple Loop clocks in at 5.6 G’s. That puts it on a list of some of the top-ranked roller coasters in the world due to the amount of G-force (the pressure your body feels as it accelerates), according to roller coaster enthusiasts at Coasterpedia.net.

The most powerful roller coaster in the U.S. is the Shockwave at Six Flags Over Texas with a force of 5.9 G, according to the park, meaning a 100-pound rider would feel like they weighed about 590 pounds on the roller coaster.

How fast does the All American Triple Loop roller coaster go and how long is the ride?

The new roller coaster will reach a top speed of 55 miles per hour and the ride will last about two minutes, according to Indiana Beach.

Riders must be at least four feet tall. More information about rider requirements and safety can be found on the park’s website.

When is Indiana Beach Amusement Park Opening Day in 2024?

Indiana Beach amusement park opens Saturday, May 11, 2024.

How to score tickets for the inaugural ride

According to a press release, the theme park will host a special VIP preview of the All American Triple Loop on Friday, May 10, exclusively for 2024 season pass holders. Season passes were listed online for $74.99 each or $69.99 for renewal subscriptions. Single day regular admission tickets ranged from $32-$42.

Season pass holders who make a charitable donation to the Boys & Girls Club of South Bend will have a chance to be one of the first 36 riders in Indiana. To participate, visit Indiana Beach’s website at IndianaBeach.com/boysandgirlsclubs/.

The charity auction ends on Sunday 5 May and the winners will be announced on Monday 6 May. Auction proceeds will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs in White, Fulton, Pulaski and Cass counties, according to Indiana Beach.

What can you do on Indiana Beach?

The amusement park has seven roller coasters, including the Triple Loop, a water park and more than 50 rides and attractions for children and adults.

Where is Indiana Beach Amusement Park located?

Indiana Beach Amusement Park is located in Monticello, Indiana at 5224 E. Indiana Beach Rd. along the Tippecanoe River.
