Stopped by the park, for a few hours today. Had a good crowd and T3 was closed. Took a few pics today, not enough for a report but going to post a couple.

Usually I'm not the biggest fan of obnoxiously bright colors on rides, but I love Scream Xtreme's color scheme. It just looks really vibrant and fresh.
Steel: 160 / Wood: 32 / Total: 192
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

Hearing on Instagram that T3 did successfully open.

Side note, I'm hearing the new Avian Adventure show in the old Batman theater in the park is kinda nice. It opened on Memorial Day Monday. Hope to be back to see it sometime, but it'll be a few weeks until then.

Edit: Oh, I had failed to mention Scream Extreme.

It's very nice! A very worthy successor to Enterprise, imo. Rides almost exactly the same (without the little rattle Enterprise had towards the end), but the restraint system feels so open with allowing your legs to dangle freely. Plus the benefit of the in-line style (versus the 2-per-row style) letting you hold out your arms too. Very solid flat ride for the park with a 48" height requirement.

The new flat looks awesome!

Looks like weather permitting I'm going to shoot for July 5th. Has anyone else gone post 4th of July and can comment on the crowds? Really excited to check out Storm Chaser and Lightning Run. I'm not too worried about crowds, I'll definitely make sure I'm there by opening to go straight to LR.

Wowie, Lightning Run and Storm Chaser are no joke.

Storm Chaser is like the sampler platter from RMC. A little bit of everything. All excellent and extreme airtime.

Lightning Run was SO smooth! And just like a RMC had crazy transitions with incredible airtime.

Cyclos was an endurance test. Man with the heat and the really long cycle, it was intense! One and done. Too much for me.

It was incredibly hot today and the park was relatively dead outside the waterpark. No line for Storm Chaser and just a few for LR with one train ops.

Yep, weird layout and getting in/out.

Great day trip to combo KK with the Slugger Museum and downtown Louisville fun.

Still trying to digest what happened on Storm Chaser. Each element got more intense as the ride went along! Holy crap that ride was fantastic. Outlaw Run is still my favorite though.

Getting to touch the bats used by Pete Rose, Votto, Jackie Robinson, ARod, and more. It's like the library of famous bats.

Nice mini TR! Looks like you had fun!

Storm Chaser and Lightning Run are both very unique rides and fit well with KK, hope I can get out there sometime to experience them! :br

Looks like you had a good day at KK. We really like Lightning Run, but Storm Chaser proved to be a bit much for any more than a couple rides. That's probably why we didn't like SV as much as other rides at CP.

Did you go to dick rock falls while you were there? These recent pictures of KK are reminding me of how vibrant the park looks with its bright colors.

The heat + Storm Chaser almost made my friend sick, he stopped after 2 rides. It is really intense! It was 100* out and the real feel was probably 110*+. The trains absolutely rocketed into the final unbanked turn and the brake run. If SV is on the same level then I'm even more stoked for SV!

What is dick rock falls? :lol:

^The Rapids Ride. It has a section of stacked rocks that look like giant penisis. the only thing that could make them worse was if they were fountains with water squirting out of their "heads". :lmao:
