The website for the event mentioned a Friday The 13th themed 5D theater show, does anyone know if this attraction has been used at any other parks during a Halloween event? I'm not familiar with it from previous event but have been out of the loop a bit, but it sounds like an interesting concept. Most 3/4/5D theater rides are kinda cheesy since they're usually meant for kids, but if this one is more R-rated out the gate then it might be interesting.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

Looks like I'll be able to check it out on Oct 18. Looking forward to it.

Probably go ahead and get a new season pass with the Halloween design.

If the donkey is rockin, don't come knockin!

I believe it's the same one as at Kennywood, which is basically just a short edit of the 2009 remake plus some extra effects.

I love Kentucky Kingdom's social media. Between this and Hagrid's, their team has a great sense of humor.

This isn't the first post the social media guy has made hating on T3. I wonder how Ed feels about him bashing a signature ride
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

Ed has made bashing remarks towards T3 too and laughs at them. Ed is a very cool guy.

When we were there on the 2016 US trip a park rep warned us to brace ourselves. They're well aware it's rough. :lol:

As a response for Kentucky Kingdom's BIG NEWS concerning T3, methinks we should get at least a thousand people to enter the queuing line for T3 at one time to fill that entire line up and hire a DJ to play heavy metal music as the riders wait for hours to ride it (T3 has only one train in operation unless on the day I was visiting the park the second train was taken off the tracks and was held inside a workshop ).

And here's the name of that event:

HEAD BANGER'S PARTY :vekoma:

To you riders and amusement park flyers out there - What da ya think? :lol:

You gotta love KK poking fun at KI for announcing they're closing Vortex with this tweet. I didn't put it together until now.
