Kentucky Kingdom (SFKK, KK) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Seems like someone else posted pictures but you can never have too many pictures of sexy airtime

 

I'm sensing similarities to Lightning Run! Incredible first drop, followed by a sweet airtime hill, followed by a large overbank. middle part of course is super-twisty, and near the end are a bunch of tiny airtime hills!

 

I'm also seriously loving the style of this coaster too! It's bright track and supports combined with this layout parallel against Crittenden drive is almost reminiscent of a boardwalk coaster (reminds me of California Screamin'), but so much better!

I'm currently preparing for a speech for a communication class on the history of Kentucky kingdom (I now I'm a nerd ) and I had a question about the ride that apparently was in the spot where deluge is that was called "The Great Race". It opened in 1998 and closed in 2006. Anyone know anything about this? On the Wikipedia page, it says that it is still in storage...

If I remember, it sat right across from T2 and was a kiddie ride that went in a circle. I believe you could turn a wheel and the cars (literally themed to racing cars) would swing further outwards or inwards.

 

Edit: The first pic under a google images search will bring it up.

Thanks! For some reason, I do not remember this ride at all lol

Just found a video from 2006 of an idea for a launch coaster in the spot where Top Eliminator Dragsters was. This is sort of what I was thinking so they could keep a similar theme. They wouldn't need to make it that tall and thus why I think it would fit.

^Me thinks that's just some kid's RCT3 pipe dream. It looks interesting, but I don't think it has anything to do with Kentucky Kingdom.

 

I was just going off the description of the video, I still think some type of launched coaster that is low to ground would work really nice. If they didn't just refurbish raging rapids, I could have seen them use that land. TBH I just want something in that wasted area
