Might be small, but it's going to pack some airtime.

Do we expect all coasters running that first weekend? I'm at Kings Island on the 27th most likely and thinking about swinging by KK on my way home on the 28th. Never been before. Appears that is the first day for GP?

Everything about this ride looks great for an intermediate coaster.

 

On a side note, why wouldn't I expect the POV to have a cheesy Travel Channel rock track overlay? The standard hasn't changed since the 90's.

Everything, but the water park will be open.

No, no, no, see it's all in keeping with the theme. The P-47 Thunderbolt pilots the zero cars are based on listened to the same thing in the skies over war-torn Germany.

Yes, all coasters and more than likely, all the rides will be open. This includes Kentucky Flyer. The 27th is a buyout day for the park and the 28th is the first day open to the public.

I'm looking forward to visiting Kentucky Kingdom this summer. The Kentucky Flyer looks amazing and if its anything like WHITE LIGHTNING located at Fun Spot Orlando then that will be One Fun Ride!!!

 

I was at the park when it first opened five years ago, and I'm going back there to get a little revenge on that park. On my last trip there some rides and water slides were either not open or opened for just a few hours in the evening due to low staffing. Furthermore, I couldn't ride Lightning Run due to the restraints not locking in for me. But this next visit shall be different because I'm coming in mid-summer, T3, Storm Chaser, and Kentucky Flyer will be running, and if I can ride THE CLAW at HERSHEYPARK (due in part of me losing thirty pounds) and don't gain any weight from now until trip time then I'm sure I can finally ride Lightning Run. Plus, I miss my favorite ride THE ROLLER SKATER in which I'll take a ride around their rink. I'll also be RED-DY to ride T3 and the Storm Chaser in which I'll be chasing a storm, or will that storm be chasing me?
