History[edit | edit source]

Adventure Point, a former ropes course attraction

In 2011, Adventure Point was opened. It was a ropes course attraction and operated until 2015.

In early February 2020, rides from Indiana Beach and Fantasy Island were offered for sale, leading to speculation that the parks would not open for 2020.[1] On February 18, it was announced that Indiana Beach would not open in 2020 as Apex Parks had bankruptcy protection and been unsuccessful in finding a buyer.[2] The following month, government officials put together a $3 million incentive package to attract potential buyers of Indiana Beach.[3] In April, the park posted an image on their social media which included the phrase "Can you keep a secret?" and another with "permanently closed" written, but with the word permanently scored out.[4] Later that month, it was revealed that Chicago businessman Gene Staples had purchased the park and hopes to reopen it in 2020.[5]
