Kentucky Kingdom (SFKK, KK) Discussion Thread

P. 401: Herschend Enterprises named majority partner and park operator

Recommended Posts

I don't know about any of you, but I don't mind that shade of red.

 

I like the color, too. But I am generally not a fan of single-color paintjobs and would have preferred if the supports were black or something, to mix it up. Otherwise it just turns into a big blob of red.

Nice paint job but I'm not a fan of the single color. To me it just looks odd from a distance.

For me too. Even though I like red I think that if they wanted to go for a single colour (which is already a weird idea) there would be better options (like black).

Maybe it's just because I'm a Kentucky fan, but I do not like the all red. It hurts my eyes. or maybe it's the fact that it's an SLC that hurts. I would much rather have red track and black supports. Oh well

Methinks the solid color scheme of red on T3 could be their tribute to their local college - The Louisville Cardinals. We may be only seeing one part of the picture; we know the color of the layout, but what about the color of the trains? And will the trains be the same color or will one train's color be different from the other?

 

Wait and see, we'll just wait and see.

 

T3 - IT CAME BACK!

^They'll paint the trains a solid red. Restraints, seats, bars, wheels, bearings, bolts, everything. Riders will be given a red morph suit, one size fits all. In 2016 they'll repaint the concrete, fences, and plants around the ride a solid red. The park map will showcase a red blob instead of the location of a coaster. This is only phase one.

Kentucky Kingdom shot back on the lawsuit.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Kentucky Kingdom is firing back and blasting a lawsuit against the amusement park.

 

A woman sued, claiming she and another person fell out of a double inner tube on a water slide and got hurt.

 

Ed Hart said the woman who filed the lawsuit had her season pass revoked after failing to wait for a lifeguard's OK to go down a water slide.

 

The park said later that same day, Felicia Evans jumped a fence near a roller coaster and went into a restricted area.

 

A month after Evans' pass was revoked she filed the lawsuit.

 

Kentucky Kingdom also denies claims that lifeguards weren't properly trained.

 

Evans' attorney declined to comment.

I... don't think there's a reaction picture that could justify the level of face-palming right now... People can be so stupid.

 

Edit: The other person that sued the park was interviewed, saying he only wants his medical bill covered.

Haha! That's pretty awesome. However, in this country there are plenty of juries/judges stupid enough to still give the "victim" some money.

Did a quick swoop by the park for a look at the paintjob on T3. Just a couple buckets short of completion it seems!

The single color palette will definitely make it easier to spot from a distance a train running the track.

The bright afternoon sun made for a badly exposed shot, but I wanted to point out how the park is introducing quite a bit of color into the lineup of rides. The blue/green/dark-green/purple of Lightning Run, the orange and red of Deep Water Dive and blue of Wave Runner, and now the red of T3, plus whatever color the new Skycatcher will be (possibly green?).

Years ago I also rode a slide without the Lifeguards OK. Fortunately nothing bad happened and I didn't get my pass revoked. I've learned my lesson.
