The only thing I have to disagree with you on is Kentucky Flyer being perfectly smooth. For such a new ride, I thought it tracked really poorly—similar to Mine Blower. I’m not sure if it’s a construction thing or a Timberliner thing, but even though I thought both coasters were super fun, they both bounced around enough to give me a little headache after a couple rides.
Thanks! I've definitely felt shimmies on some of the Gravity Group compact woodies like Twister, Roar-o-Saurus, and Mine Blower, but I don't recall experiencing one on Kentucky Flyer. Maybe it was because I was calibrated to riding Voyage all weekend.

Do it! You won't regret it.

They can't top the Busch Gardens pretzels since they wrap those things in bacon, but they're as good as Wetzel's Pretzels, which is a big compliment from me.

I agree! The only thing I can think of is marketability. So many of these parks want to advertise records or gimmicks. Lightning Run has neither; it's just a fantastic ride. The only flaw with it are the restraints being a bit restrictive, which slows down loading.

It would work great in most places. I'd love one in New England.
Both your HW TR and your KK TR were great. I found it funny how The Chicken Wings/Fish Station and the Nacho Bar kept the coaster lines short! Welcome to the Midwest. If there'd been a free chewing tobacco station you would have had walk-on rides all night.
Why hasn't anyone else built one of these. They're awesome!
I vowed to ride The Voyage one day after watching a TPR onride years ago and as it happened my brother and I finally made it from the UK for Hollowood Nights 2019. Thus my first experience of this incredible coaster was trimless, in total darkness, with absolutely no prior knowledge of what was coming up. I clung on for dear life! Amazing. When we hit the double-down I had no idea what had just happened!
