Kentucky Kingdom (SFKK, KK) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Is it true that the back is actually the best seat, and is that consistent among SLCs?

Relative to every other seat, yes. I still ride it when I get the chance, but only in the last two rows. If you guys rode any of the front seats... I feel especially sorry for you!

WOW! My day at Kentucky Kingdom was worth the 7hr drive from Alabama! The park was fantastic! True, it was busy (Saturday with nice weather, it was expected) and the lines were long, but I managed to ride Lighting Run, Thunder Run, Roller Skater, T3, and Storm Chaser! ALL 5 COASTERS IN ONE DAY! It struck me as odd Storm Chaser had the shortest wait because I rode it back to back. It's probably because it's tucked away in the back of the park. LOL. I also managed to ride all the thrill rides as well. Sadly, no water park. I'm not a water park fan. Sorry. LOL. Overall, I had a great day! I will be doing a trip report so stay tuned! By the way, I rode both the blue and purple train and both trains packed a punch. Sitting in the back on both trains left me out my seat just about the whole ride. Storm Chaser IS A MUST RIDE and COASTER CREDIT!

I did ride T3 in the front, so there's that. However, Thunderhawk in the front was WAY better than our 3rd or 4th row ride!

Too be honest, it's a tough pick, but I would choose Storm Chaser. Even though Lightning Run had great airtime, Storm Chaser had the most INTENSE airtime. That first hill had me like . . . "Sweet Mercy! Let me hold on!" LOL. Both are great coasters and I would advise anyone to get those coaster credits. It's well worth it!

that first hill itself makes me want to get there to ride. only been there once when Chang was brand new. lol

I always thought the single most intense and forceful airtime I'd ever felt was on Maverick... That first hill on Storm Chaser laughs at Maverick's hills! (The second airtime hill on Storm Chaser still delivers it about as strong as Maverick's hills do!)

I can't think of a worse b&m than Chang!

This is why NTaG is so awesome. It has airtime like that all the way through. Some of it isn't quite as forceful as Maverick, but the first half is definitely up there.

And now we're saddled with it here in NJ.

So, are you guys excited for the mysterious future RMC coaster? What do you think about it?

 

Well, at first I thought it'd be something using the Raptor track, perhaps it's "standard configuration"...but then, I thought back on his previous expressed desires of having another B&M coaster (he tried buying Time Machine) for the park so now I'm thinking it may be something utilizing the T-Rex track. Either way, and all steel RMC is what I'm expecting.

Chang was a lot of fun. I don't know what happened during the move but Green Lantern is just unbearable. Too bad, because I love the layout. It needs to go floorless or just standard sit down even.

Can anyone give me insight on what the lines are like on weekends and July 4th weekend in particular? As far as I know this park doesn't have any kind of fast pass and I'm just curious what the lines would be like. I've heard people say it can get very busy.

I heard that he said it was going to be "fabulous"

 

 

"Fabulous" makes me think family coaster. Which isn't a bad thing. I wouldn't be surprised if this coaster is planned for the old dragster pad.

Sorry but how do you make that conclusion? Ed Hart is an interesting character. I've watched several interviews of him because I'm a nerd and I could totally see him using a word like "fabulous" to describe almost any decent roller coaster. Don't ask why because I have basically no way to prove that but he's just got strong New Yoker/New Jersey vibes going, like the type of person that says "wonderful" in every third sentence.

 

Basically I wouldn't rule out any coaster type at this point. It's late so don't question my likely flawed logic, lol.
