Went to Kentucky Kingdom today. Some things to note...
- The park looks GREAT!!! So much more improved even after our last visit two years ago. - Storm Chaser is absolutely *INSANE* OMG! I don't know if this ride has picked up speed since it opened or what, but all those people that said it was "slow" - Um, it was NOT SLOW AT ALL!
I'm so pissed that I'll miss this park by ONE FRIGGIN' DAY! My cross-country move will send me right by Louisville on August 10th or 11th. They cease daily operations on the 9th. Not fair, Kentucky Kingdom. Not fair at all.

They look weird, especially the fighter pilot-esque green restraint release buttons, but they made the ride so much better. I was able to ride it 4 times in a row without a headache. It's shaky, but at least the rapid directional changes can be enjoyed instead of beating you to a pulp.

No wonder why you thought that Storm Chaser was so nuts; you guys had the blue train. The wheel configuration that the blue train has makes it MUCH faster; I was there a couple weeks ago and they only ran the purple train, and tested the blue train after the park closed because the maintenance guys said earlier in the day that it was going so fast it was tripping the E-stop. It was still *REALLY* good in the purple train and definitely was not anything close to what I would call slow, but IMO one of the weaker RMC's. (To be a bit more specific on that, I'd rank it in order of increasing intensity as Lightning Run before the bunny hops --> Storm Chaser --> Lightning Run's finale.)
Do you think that they actually listened to your ride suggestions?
