Since opening in1926 on the shores of Lake Shaefer, Indiana Beach has evolved into one of the largest amusement resorts in the midwest. For 2022, the park is introducing Triple Loop, a restored triple-looping roller coaster from legendary designer Anton Schwartzkopf.

Founded in 1959, Santa's Village is the only remaining park of the nation's first theme park chain. Closed from 2005 to 2010, the park was given a second chance and re-opened in 2011, renovating and adding new attractions since, including Santa Springs Water Park.

Since 1892, guests have been visiting this shaded and cool park along Lake Michigan. NAPHA has been involved in two major projects at the park: placing the Smith and Smith Chair-O-Plane ride and helping bring Zippin Pippin to the park. 

Opening in 1991, this park has a unique collection of amusement park rides including a Roll-O-Plane, Toboggan, and a Mad Mouse. The three mile long Whiskey River Railway is one of the park's highlights.
