Kentucky Kingdom (SFKK, KK) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

He didn't say. It came about from an interesting conversation where Ed brought T2 up and I think Elissa and some other folks suggested scrapping it. The back and forth between Elissa and Ed was pretty entertaining. The conversation ended with Ed saying the new trains wouldn't be Vekoma's.

I like Vekomas new trains, the Kumba trains look funky haha

I'm pretty sure SF took the trains

 

If that's the case then It really should be getting Vekoma trains IMO, wheel boogies have not really been a strong side of KumbaK. I wonder if there is someone else who would be interested in manufacturing trains for SLC's, Premier comes to mind.

Premier did an excellent job wrecking a Vekoma (Goliath at SFNE). I say KumbaK.

Some people might not be a fan of one color for all on a coaster but I think it looks awesome. That side of the park needed something bright and vibrant to stand out and it sure will with it being sunny outside. Maybe there could be a surprise regarding the trains, it might be something nobody has thought of for the trains to enhance a coaster like an SLC. Who knows but Ed Hart seems to always have something up his sleeve.

That side of the park looks well-balanced in terms of color - T3 would have be camouflaged if it were some shade of blue or green.

I'll just leave this here. I'm sure most of us get where the reference is really coming from!

Red is the new black.

Edit: Oh, and I'm really digging the color now.

Double-Edit: I totally skipped over the previous page and didn't see that this photo (along with the following photo) had already been posted... Oops.

IIRC the trains were shortened due to some miscalculation/design flaw with the track. It be nicer to have 10 cars per train but I doubt it will happen without track work ala El Condor... Unless I'm completely wrong about the reason for shortening the train.

What things would you like to see RMC do to Twisted Twins?

 

I would like two see the two sides combined like iron colossus. I think this could work even better for the twins because each side already has different elements and lifts, so it wouldn't be like riding the same coaster through twice. I'd also like for them to keep the wooden track, like they use on their new construction. Cool trains, crazy colors, and a little theme would be nice, but that's wishful thinking. I don't care what they do with the layout; whatever they come up with would porous ky be vastly superior to what I could imagine anyway! Lol
