(Monticello, IN) - Indiana Beach, Indiana's largest and most popular amusement resort and vacation playground, announces the addition of four 'funtastic' rides for the 2014 season.

The Baby Baron, Growler, Dragon Wagon and Rockin' Tug are just the first of several upgrades planned this year.

Each of the new attractions was acquired with children and families in mind. The Baby Baron allows little ones to soar over Kiddyland, controlling their own bi-plane that rises and falls at the driver's command. Also in Kiddyland, Dragon Wagon, offers an exciting ride for children seeking the thrill of their first roller coaster. Kids will get a rush while riding up and over hills and swerving around corners.

Families can take classic tea cups to the next level on the Growler. Four people will spin at a 20-degree angle, 7-1/2' feet in the air, while the entire ride twists and turns. And finally, everyone can cruise on Rockin' Tug, a small boat that gently spins, dips and peaks on ocean

"We are excited to introduce these new attractions in 2014," stated Bob Gallagher, Park President. "They add something fresh and fun for the families who visit year after year, and we hope they will be a draw for others considering a family vacation to Indiana Beach."

"We also have to announce that after 42 years of thrilling guests from across the country, the Galaxi, our park's first major steel coaster, is being retired. Fans and thrill-seekers can rest assured that plans are underway for a new thrill coming in 2015." Mr. Gallagher further hinted, "There's still more in store for 2014, be sure to watch for funtastic additional news."

Indiana Beach will open for the season on May 10, 2014. Season passes are now available with exclusive perks for pass holders. To learn more, call (574)583-4141, or visit
