Riverside Amusement Park was located on West 30th Street at White River in Indianapolis. The park grew to have two roller coasters, "The Flash" and "The Thriller," along with games and concessions. When John D. Coleman became president of the company he instituted a "whites only patronage" policy, angering integrationists. Eventually the policy was ended. Reduced revenues caused the park to close in late 1970.
