Not that I want to see the ride removed, but it does occupy a fairly large chunk of land. Storm runner is the only big draw in the area, and that part of the park could use some more atteactions. It was kinda like a ghost town walking thru that area on the way to storm runner.

I'm not really that familiar with the size of crowds the water ride pulls in, but it was either closed or nobody was riding it when I was there last.

I'd see hot and/or muggy days pull pretty hefty or near-full lines on it. It's been open pretty consistently this summer (or at least on days I've gone), though I noticed the entire back area of the park is now seeing purposefully delayed opening due to crowds not reaching those areas early enough in the day.

I do agree that the back corner area could use more spice to liven it up and entice people to go back there and stay back there longer. Storm Chaser has a really good draw, but not the biggest of all the roller coasters since it's in its own area kind-of alone.

^ I think a Scrambler and a Tilt-A-Whirl would fit nicely back there. Miles isn't leaving, it fit's that area nicely.

Quick question...

We were thinking of hitting the park in the next week or so, and looking at the parks schedule it looks as if the state fair is also going on.

How does this effect the park? Is it busier than normal? Is it a good idea to delay our trip another week or 2?

The crowds in KK usually don't change during fair times.

Just keep in mind you'll be paying for fair admission on top of park admission since they're basically connected, but KK usually lowers its entry price during these times to make up for that. Fair admission/parking is discounted for now ($12) if you go through the website now until Wednesday, after which it'll be $18: https://kystatefair.org/tickets

This also includes discounted unlimited ride wristbands for the fair rides if you decide to stick around in the fair as well.

Just bought my fair tickets for Thursday, so here's how it breaks down, including all taxes and fees:
Fair admission and parking - $15.40
Fair midway wristband - $22.50
Kentucky Kingdom ticket - $20.14

Total - $58.04

KK is only open 4pm to 9pm on fair weekdays, but the fair is 9am to midnight. I can't find when the rides open, but most fairs are noon or 1pm, so I'd expect that here.

I'm excited; never been to the KY state fair before. I had a friend in college who was from Kentucky and spoke highly of it. Should be a good time.

I was there last year on a Saturday during the KY state fair and it was completely dead.

School starts here tomorrow so the best times to go would be during the week while school is in session.
