Indoor amusement park making it OK to stay inside

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The ice cold temperatures at the start of Spring may have you feeling mad as a gorilla, but one step inside the I-X Indoor Amusement Park and you feel like a happy kid in the middle of summer all over again.  

We got a personal tour of the 150 attractions at the I-X Indoor Amusement Park.  New this year: a Zipline that gave organizer Amy Girton a thrill and a view of her own venue that she'd never experienced before, "You go up about 70 feet in the air and fly down on the line."

Also making a splash at this years show is this ride where you are sure to get soaked.  Who cares that there's snow on the ground outside!

"We have the White River Ride.  It has 58,000 gallons of water running through it."

So even if winter isn't leaving us like a lamb, you can pretend it's mid-July for a few hours here.  The people who run this show are among the few that are relieved Spring hasn't seemed to have sprung yet.  They may now get record crowds.

"I think we are the only ones cheering right now for bad weather.  Everyone can come inside and you won't have to worry about it. Even if it's 30 degrees, we're open, and it's fine."
