Rumbler was great!.

 

My legs were too long for the Looping Star.

 

Wild mouse wrenched my knees, but was great fun!

 

I agree, T2 is a great Vekoma SLC!!!!

 

Get to Beech Bend to experience the Rumbler!!!!

Mr Jones, the park owner, soaking in the accolades! Being from South Kentucky I was happy to see a world class a ride come to my neck of the woods.

A very happy Beech Bend PR person. My thanks to Beech Bend for a great day. Family run parks are great!

I feel safe when a GCI person is riding their creation!

The ribbon cutting. Great to see the RCCGB crew on hand!

Your reports always entertain. T2 beat the hell out of me on my one and only ride, but maybe they sprayed some WD40 on it or tightened some bolts or something. Thunder Run is a great woodie (and Hurler did run like that at one point, very briefly), and I remember Chang as actually being fun, but perhaps it has not aged well.

Dave, I don't know what the hell they did with T2. I still enjoyed Chang, but I also like Mantis which pinballed me around a bit too...

Ah, yes, how sweet it was too. $11 for a large Coke and a slice, not TOO bad

 

 

^ Yeah, you beat me to it, xdisney. $11!!!!! Joe, are you sure T2 didn't box that brain around too much?

OoOoOo... Chang looks awesome with the "lighter blue" supports! The Medusa scheme is awful and should have never been replicated.

 

Is this the third different paintscheme this thing's had?

 

Anyways, cool TR. Never been to Kentucky so this is all new to me.

"$11 for a large Coke and a slice"

 

Is Kentucky Algonquin for "rip-off pizza joints"?

Tell 'em to put in Little Caesars - $5 for a large pizza (with the corresponding quality, natch).

 

A $5 large would turn into a $25 large at a theme park.

^ She was allowed to ride at least once that I saw, and she was sitting next to the park owner when she rode! That's gotta be an embarassing thing to be known for..."first person turned away from Kentucky Rumbler due to being overweight" hahaha

T2 wasn't the SLC prototype. That wonderful honor goes to El Condor, which I rode back in October.

 

Without a boubt, El Condor was the worst coaster I have been on, and maybe the first that I would never go on if given another chance.

 

 

Goliath @ Walibi World, on the other hand......

 

 

 

 

Anyway, looks like you had a good time (save the flat tire). I hope to visit Beech Bend, SFKK, Holiday World, and PKI on the way to/from our family's lakehouse in Michigan this year, so all of these Beech Bend/Holiday World TRs are getting me pumped up about it.

^ I knew it wasn't the first, but I am pretty sure it and Condor are identical whereas later models were slightly changed. So, yeah... still kinda crappy in that SLC way. I hope you do make it to Beech Bend this year. Though I don't know if I'd want to drop the $24 on a full day's admission, perhaps you can get the "after 5" deal or whatever time they start selling reduced passes.

 

Oh, wait. Beech Bend is the greatest park in the world, please spend as much money as you can there.
