Indiana Beach awarded "#1 Darkride" distinction
The Dr. Frankenstein's Haunted Castle attraction at Indiana Beach Amusement and Camp Resort in Monticello has been awarded the distinction of "#1 Favorite Walkthrough Attraction" by the Darkride and Funhouse Enthusiasts (DAFE) in their Fifth Annual Members Survey.
A darkride is an amusement ride that provides a ride experience in an enclosed structure with a dimly lit interior featuring scenery and special effects. Funhouses, haunted houses, mazes and other illusion attractions qualify for this distinction. In the 2006 survey, more than 90 attractions worldwide were nominated. DAFE has approximately 280 members worldwide. The story behind Dr. Frankenstein's Haunted Castle offers that the castle itself was reconstructed brick-by-brick with all of its ghostly inhabitants intact after being transported to Indiana Beach from the Doctor's native Transylvania.
