ACROSS INDIANA: RIVERSIDE MEMORIES.

DVD_AcrossIndiana[DVD: WFYI Productions – 1998 – 27 mins]. Take a look back at Riverside Amusement Park (Indianapolis, Indiana). From its opening in 1903 until closing in 1970, this 20-acre amusement park boasted many rides and attractions. See the “Thriller,” “Derby Racer” and “Flash” wooden roller coasters; Wild Mouse; Krazy House; Mill Chute; Riverside Railroad Victory Express; Ferris Wheel; Tilt-A-Whirl; Turnpike; Merry Go Round; Roller Rink; Concessions, and more. This film details the park through good times and bad: a flood, changes in ownership, war and racial segregation. Features contributions from a former park owner, former employees and enthusiasts. ANDY SHINE SAYS: I enjoyed this, but the fascinating subject matter deserved an additional half hour! ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
