Kentucky Kingdom (SFKK, KK) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

^anything would be better than the Wizard of Oz, it was bad.

 

Did they just show clips of the original movie, or edit the original into a shortened version or was it a shortened remake?

They edited the movie into a shortened version with the barebones plot. It wasn't as bad as people are saying it was but I do agree that there is room for improvement. The motion effects were jarring when you were basically watching a movie from the 30's.

My four year old daughter loved it. We had to watch it every single time we were in the park...It was not that bad but the Rio movie from 2014 made much better use of the motion seats and effects of the theater.

Looks like there will be some nice laterals before the lift hill like with New Texas Giant!

OR...like every other coaster with an unbanked turn after the station. Seriously, this isn't a new thing.

No. But it's still a fun feature worth pointing out.

I'm just happy they took out the wood blocking the view of the bottom of the ride when looking from the street or sidewalk. These photos don't show it, but I saw someone else's recent photos of it. Now you can easily see the bottom of the track!

I was just thinking that the other side of the station would make a nice covered place to keep an unused train on a slow day or if it was down for some reason a great place to work on it.

....If this were B&M you (or anybody) wouldn't even be commenting about the turn, its only purpose is to get from point A to point B.

I would not be complaining if it were a B&M, but that's because I am one of the few roller coaster enthusiast who doesn't hate almost everything B&M does.

Track work looks like it's coming along great!

 

True story. At this rate track work should be done in no time! Can't wait to see how it looks when it's finished. And most importantly. . . I can't wait to see a POV!

 

(Even though that's obviously still a ways off.)
