The coaster looks good, but the other announcements are even better.

 

122 foot tall world's largest waterslide

 

A new drop tower

 

$60 season pass, $45 day ticket

 

A bunch of new water slides and family attractions

 

I think this park has a good future.

Pretty sure it's Chance-Morgan, as if you go to their website, you can see they still offer their roller coasters. But then again there's always a chance it could be a Vekoma. But anyways, it looks great! Hopefully I'll be able to stop by the park next year.

That's definitely a Morgan. It's about time that they built a coaster with trains that aren't massive like the ones on the hyper coasters (and Santa Monica West Coaster).

I'm just excited that they got this off the ground. To be honest though, if you look at the map [http://www.kentuckykingdom.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/KK_ParkMap_Web.pdf] it's looking for this to be more of the new Hurricane Bay & Kentucky Kingdom (not the other way around), which is probably a better way of getting people back through the gate.

I was just wondering "What style/shaping is Lightning Run using? I've seen it before..."

Then it hit me..

It looks like Phantoms Revenge! Which is good because that means lots and lots of !

Excited!!

That's awesome news ! The layout of Lightning Run looks awesome, and I'm really happy to finally see a mega lite in the US ! Curious to see how the first Morgan Mega-Lite will perform...

I know the map is far from realistic, but that drop tower looks like a Larson tower based on the decorative piece on top. If that's the case that's awesome, those things are insane.

I think that's a pretty good guess. The picture on the park's website matches Larson's website and the height seems to also match.

 

It also looks like Lightning Run will be the first Chance Rides Hyper GT-X Coaster.

Nice looking coaster. Hopefully it'll be on par with Intamin's mega-lites (a bit angry they didn't go with one of those.) Looks fun, and quite different than Chance-Morgan's older rides.

Surprised no one has mentioned this yet....

 

While *I* personally think it's great, does anyone else think it's sort of weird they are adding a drop tower for their re-opening year? Seems to me that's just asking for the press to bring up the accident. And that's only because the press are dumb and would be looking for a headline...

^^It is kinda weird, but I think since this drop tower is so significantly different from the one that the accident occurred on, people may be able to tell the difference. Then again, people and the press are stupid so there may be some controversy. If the park had purchased an Intamin drop tower though, there would probably be some problems.
