Does anyone have any insight of how the park will be during the fair? I ended up missing the park last week but will be able to go on the 14. I know the park has been closed for several years so there is not recent data on crowds during the state fair. I just hope it isn't packed and stacked.

First Day of the Fair is usually packed, but not sure how KK will be. It's separate admission from the fair this year, shouldn't be too bad.

Be warned that the water park will be closed and the park will only be open from 4-9 on that day due to the State Fair.

The 16th is national roller coaster day, and I had planned to be at a park that day which was most likely to be KK, even with the higher priced unlimited ride wristbands at the fair ($25 weekends, $20 weekdays) and higher crowds all over. If you go, like the others have said, go early. Gates open 7am, but the park opens at 1pm on weekends (4pm weekdays). Park closes 9pm and the midway closes around midnight. Be weary of high schoolers hanging out around the front of the midway near late hours.

^You should've seen where the State Fair board asked KY Kingdom visitors to park a few weeks back...

Lot H, though... This isn't Disney World. (Lot-L is where the State Fair midway is going to be.)

I have never been to the area so sorry if I seem slow. Do I have to buy admission to the fair to get to KK?

 

Yes you will need to pay, 10.00 admission, to get in the Fair. You can buy tickets at Local Kroger stores for 9.95 for KK, 19.95 at the fair. Be prepared for a BUSY day, the first weekend of the Fair is CRAZY. In the past KK was free admission, you used tickets for the rides and the park was usually busy on the weekends. Don't know how it will be this year with separate admission, hope you have a great time, at least you'll have plenty to do with the Fair going on.

So I have some family in Louisville, and they posted a link to the following this morning:

 

 

My 8 year old son was assaulted while attending UPS day at Kentucky Kingdom today! While standing in line waiting for the ride Lightening Run, him and his step mother were attacked after she asked a woman not to cut in front of them in line. My 8 year old was punched in the side of his head and his step mom was hit from behind and knocked to the grown where she continued to be hit. When security arrived, all they did was escort the group out of line and let them walk away. They did not do any documentation or get the names of the people to attacked my family. When police showed up, they informed us that there was nothing they could do as far as filing charges or a report because Kentucky Kingdom did not do what they were suppose to do by getting the names of the individuals! So now my family has no way of pressing charges for the assault on my child by an adult. I would like to think that a park that is suppose to provide a fun and safe environment for families should be able to do just that! I am beyond let down by this park! I am contacting you in hopes that you can help spread the word about this incident and make sure it doesn't happen to another child or family! Thanks

 

The comments section below the posting is full of other people describing the less than friendly nature of many of the park's patrons and the lack of response by park staff or security. If KK can't get a handle on park security, they aren't going to last very long this time around.

 

Several people pointed out that this sort of thing was why they went to Holiday World and loved it.

^^ sadly ever park has these issues especially when you are near a major city like Louisville. However I do agree that security should of handed that better and at least held them till police arrived.

First of all, whoever the person was who attacked that woman and her child is an idiot. People like this need to be locked up immediately.

 

Second of all, Lol, the guy spelled 'Lightning Run' wrong. But seriously, I can understand line cuttiing (I don't accept it, but I can tolerate it), but hitting someone just because you don't want to stand in line is just stupid. Some people are just so self-entitled.

Is there a Kroger within walking distance to the fair?

 

Never mind have to get tickets by the 13th.

 

There is a Kroger across Cardinal Blvd, walking distance from gate 4 of the fair. You can get tickets to KK everyday of the fair at Kroger, discounted tickets for admission to the fair are only available til the 13th. I have been thinking about going Saturday, I'll know for sure tomorrow, if I do I'll send you a message. I could pick you up at your Hotel and run you by Kroger, because they are offering free parking with shuttle by Kroger.

I went to the park today and had a good time. I was pleasantly surprised with Thunder Run and thought Lightning Run was a great little coaster. My thighs do have slight bruising. I just don't understand single train operations when two are available especially on a Saturday. I can't wait to see how the park progresses over the next couple of years.

They started up the second train later that day, and crowds dropped a little once it started raining. I'm convinced that a lap on Thunder Run and Lightning Run (or most other coasters anywhere else) in light rain can never be matched to a normal lap! T'was awesome!
