Kentucky Kingdom (SFKK, KK) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Of course they wouldn't. It's not like Six Flags has already done five other RMC conversions and is already working on a sixth one! Oh wait...

I think people are overestimating how high KK would be on Six Flags' priority list if they still kept the park. This is the chain that removed the park's star attraction for a water park expansion (that never happened anyway but whatever) and left Twisted Twins to rot for two years. They would have more likely just torn TT down before they even thought of giving it the RMC treatment.

I mean, they let Rattler rot for...twenty years?

^If Six Flags still owned Kentucky Kingdom it would be called Hurricane Harbor Kentucky by now.

 

I still think given the ownership structure (with the fair board), that will still eventually end up being the case. I just can't see the fair board not messing it up again....

^ Lol I know right?! Just think of what else RMC could have done for Goliath! It could have been the best RMC to date had a longer layout been selected! Se la vie.

 

Not much more. Goliath had to go in Iron Wolf's old spot; that means, trying to shove a record breaking wooden coaster into a land plot of about an acre and a quarter. Maybe they could have stuffed in a helix, inclined loop, or non-inverting loop (a la Shock) right at the end before the brakes, and that's a BIG maybe, but other than that, they used every bit of space that they could for that ride.
