An excellent roller coaster. A certain don't miss! I rode Cornball Express ( 7 ) times when I visited Indiana Beach on 07/04/2014. After I rode this the first thing I said was, "That was nice, but I think Hellcat in the Dells is better." Some may find this to be roller coaster blasphemy, but that's how I felt. Although I went on the 4th of July the lines for this ride throughout the day went no farther than the bottom of the stairs. They only run one train, but your wait will be 4 to 5 rides tops and at times we were able to get on right away! If I could ride this roller coaster all day I would. Don't forget to check out Hurricane Hoosier when at this park!

Excellent wooden coaster. First Drop and first hill had plenty of air-time. Enjoyed this ride.

Cornball Express without a doubt lives up to all of the hype. It runs very smooth even though it is a woodie. And had some great airtime. I sat in the middle so I'm sure that it probably got even more in the front. Definitely ride this one!

For whatever reason, I am not as big a fan of this coaster as most people seem to be. I recognize that it has some great air, especially for a twister and for a coaster so small, but something is just...missing for me. Perhaps it is the buzz bars, which do the job of making me more apprehensive than individual lap bars. There are some great hand choppers, particularly off the first and third drops, and the coaster does a lot in a small footprint. It is by no means a bad coaster. indeed, it is an above average one, but one that will not find itself in my Top 10 anytime soon.

Date Ridden: Labor Day weekend of 2008. Times Ridden: 10 all over the train. The Cornball Express was our reason for visiting Indiana Beach. This coaster is constantly ranked among the top wooden coasters in the world and I really wanted to see what the hype among enthusiasts was all about. Based on the short, intense layout, I was fully expecting a Top 20 ride with possibly a perfect score. Unfortunately, I did not get that but Cornball is still pretty good. The ride has 3 or 4 serious moments of air time in both the front and back seats. My first ride was toward the middle and it was very underwhelming. The front is probably the best seat (I rode it at night for my final ride) but the back is excellent also. One problem is that the single train has really taken a beating and needs some serious TLC. When riding the back seat, there was a screw that kept popping out on the car in front of me causing a piece of trim to flap around right in front of me. I was constantly taking off my shoe and hammering it back down into place so as not to get my eye put out. I mentioned this to a ride operator who just smiled and said they would work on it before the next day. The ops themselves were very friendly and allowed re-rides without having to walk around if there were empty seats. That is always a plus, but it is also important to make sure all screws are locked down tight. Each seat on the train had numerous signs of wear and tear on the restraints and the seats themselves. Some of the seatbelts were very ragged as well. All of the problems seemed very minor. I think just fixing a few areas could really make this thing look and ride like the world class coaster it has the potential to be. Let&#39.s face facts. This ride could score a 10. It has enough airtime, a smooth track, and only a buzz bar/seat belt restraint system. These three facts, plus the fast and friendly station crew (despite their adversity to a simple screwdriver) make this a fun experience. The view of Lake Shafer was gorgeous as well. In conclusion, riding in the middle of the train gets a solid 8 while the front and back are very high 9&#39.s. I do score rides based mainly on my experience and I had a great time on the Cornball Express. I will give it a 9 with a little more love by the park bumping up into the ranks of the top wooden coasters in existence. As of right now however, it is not there.

Absolutely incredible wooden coaster. The first drop, while not that big, gave insane ejector air and the following hill gave great laterals and then a great drop gave more ejector air for backseat riders. Following that was a great turnaround hill that gave great air time. Afterwards was another great hill that gave a pop for front seat riders and then insane ejector air for back seat riders. Afterwards was another good air time hill followed by a good helix with tons of laterals. Then came two more great bunny hills with plenty of air.
