Kentucky Kingdom (SFKK, KK) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

To be fair, there have been instances of coasters debuting with tallest lift but not biggest drop.

 

Believe it or not, KI's Vortex opened as world's tallest coaster in '87 (which needless to say, was a record shortlived)

 

Its 138 ft drop wasn't the biggest though. That still belonged to American Eagle (147 ft), and then ironically enough Beast (141 ft).

 

Back when woodies still ran the show .

New pictures from today, thanks to Mark Brunner. Loving how this coaster looks, along the back of Hurricane Beach Club. Can't wait til Apr. 26, for sneak peak night to ride.

^ I think they were going with more of the appreciation of simplicity aspect. Not only that, but all of that costs money. I don't think KK was looking to spend big bucks.

 

At least a tunnel, I think the ride experience would be better and different. Thunder Run has been around for a long time.
