So I'm planning to go to the Kingdom tomorrow. Does anyone know if the advance tickets are still available from local Krogers? (Is there a Kroger close to KK? My knowledge of Louisville is so outdated that Winn-Dixie was my grocer of choice there.) Thanks in advance!

The closest Kroger is near Papa John Stadium, on the other side of the bridge and only a couple blocks from the State Fair Grounds.

 

3165 S 2nd St

Louisville, KY 40208

 

I don't know if Kroger does advance discounted tickets.

Thanks! We're hitting the road now- although I'm going with littles in tow, I hope to be able to hit the Runs at some point!

So... I went to the Kingdom today to catch it before end of season next week. I'd been once before in the waning Six Flags days- was profoundly unimpressed and memories of that stupid bridge and dead ends. I was hopeful and sure that nothing could be worse than how it was. My quick thoughts-

Only hit Thunder Run out of the big coasters. That airtime is super crazy! My oldest niece went with me- she's 8 and this was her first time at an amusement park and her first coaster. I've created a monster- she grabbed a park map and started planning for next year.

We rode a lot of flats because of my nieces' ages. Even the kiddie rides we did had a decent amount of thrills. We also did the Wizard of Oz show at my sister's request. It was probably the 'worst' thing we did all day, but was on the side of pointless more than actually bad. You have to know the story to get anything out of it.

This was my first time on Flying Eagles (or Professor John's). I admit to having a fear of heights, but this was so fun that I kept trying to climb higher. My niece asked me how to control her rudder, and on her second time, managed a snap! I'm so proud.

I didn't sample any real food (got the girls Dippin' Dots) and only peeked in one shop- the merchandise wasn't thrilling me, so no souvenirs today. I do have to give props to the KK team members- all friendly to a one and smiles on faces.

In all, we had a good time, I'm glad it doesn't suck anymore, and I look forward to next year and experiencing Storm Chaser! (Freaky to see it all halfway dismantled, even knowing what's coming.)

So this is technically RMC's first all steel coaster?

technically indeed. I feel, with the way RMC is excelling in the market, it won't be long until they are manufacturing their own giant steel supports. ( RMC giga ) " The future of coasters! ". ( hopefully! )

Well Goliath's lift hill structure is a huge steel support structure, so maybe they've already started?

I never understood why Goliath required the last minute change to the truss supported lift hill. I know the reason behind I305 and Skyrush, but with Goliath I don't know, plus the structure being made out of steel makes it even more complex
