Roller Skater: It's a roller skater T3: (to be said in the voice of a very familiar running gag from a popular, long-running cartoon)--- "MY LEGS" Thunder Run: It was okay. Not incredible. Not terrible. Just an alright coaster. Lightning Run: Great ride, not as good as Storm Chaser IMO but still very good and giving great ejector. Storm Chaser: This is a fantastic ride and my favorite ride at the park. The only complaint I have is that I've never been a fan of the modern RMC trains (also applies to Lightning Run) mainly because of my long legs that are squeezed into the shin guards. Aside from that they are both great rides.
[July 29, 2018] A boat on a log flume water ride became lodged in a trough wall with 13 passengers on board at around 8pm at Kentucky Kingdom. The boat on the Mile High Falls descended its drop and overshot a partially broken guide rail, becoming stuck at approximately a 20-degree angle.
All 13 passengers were evacuated by park employees, five seeking treatment at Kentucky Kingdom for evaluation. One declined treatment, two were treated for minor injuries and two requested transport to a local hospital, the park said.
State ride inspectors and Kentucky Kingdom's maintenance staff are investigating and the ride will remain closed until the investigation and repair is complete. Amusement Ride Accidents
I have heard rumors that this ride was on it's way out shortly, I wonder if this will seal the deal? Glad nobody was seriously injured as far as we know.
The ride takes up a lot of space in a kind of dead end of the park

It would make me sad of they got rid of Mile High Falls. I loved it and it absolutely drenched me! Plus they would only have one water ride if they were to get rid of it. I just think it fits so well in that area of the park. Though if they were to get rid of it, I'd love to see an RMC raptor or a Gerstlauer Infinity in its place.
I didn't ride it, but I found the constant clanging of the lift kind of a kink in the peaceful well kept area around it. Not a huge complaint. I wonder how long it's going to be before Splash Boat rides really start dropping like flies.
