It was another amazing day for me!

Four words: Deluge and Kentucky Rumbler!

Six flags really pulled out the red carpet for us! It was a nice park and they kept it very clean as well. We did get slightly lost in the park, I think a sign that says "bridge to next section to park would do!"

Deluge was a fun water coaster and we rode it a few times before heading to the tornado bowl. Hint: every park needs one. I was at this park about 10 years ago before Six Flags bought it and they have really tried to build it up.

Beech Bend was surpisingly fun as well, although (as usual) we found more fun things to do off ride than on! Kentucky rumbler was running insane and was awesome.

Highlights of my day:

* My first POV one the mouse ride with sound effects everytime we hit a corner

Oh the pics below explain the rest:

They said on Kentucky Rumbler to secure ALL loose articles! That's what she gets for using that yack and Elmer's glue... it melts when it gets too hot!
weave on ERT.jpg
Everyone was so busy getting their ERT in they was stepping on this the weave in the dark! Didn't anyone but me see it coming out of the exit queue?

We loved the Starburst signs! This one started the insanity!

Hey everyone! We're on our way to Indiana Beach, but I wanted to post a few pics from Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom. I'll do Beech Bend a little bit later, but overall we had an AWESOME time at both parks!

At SFKK we were welcomed with ERT on *FOUR* coasters! Twisted Twins, Chang, T2, and Greezed Lightnin'. And to top it off we also got water park ERT on Deluge.

I just want to say that Deluge was AMAZING. Seriously....no B.S. this is a GREAT water slide! Every Six Flags water park should get one! The LIM technology was so cool as you can feel the raft being propelled uphill and it *felt* like a LIM launch (although a slow one, but still really cool!)

Anyway, I'll write more in our full updates, here's a few pics....
sfkk13.jpg
Awww....such hospitality! When we arrived there were FOUR coasters going for our ERT! (We were treated so well by the SFKK staff....THANK YOU!)
sfkk02.jpg
Chang was a huge hit with the group.
sfkk03.jpg
OMG! I LOVE IT!!! (ok, ok, it's no Riddler's....but still I LOVE IT!!!!)
sfkk17.jpg
There is something REALLY wrong with our group!
sfkk18.jpg
Total mental age of everyone else on the train is less than the child in the front row!

Deluge was FREAKING AWESOME!
sfkk04.jpg
For those of you requesting "other Jim photos" here you go!
sfkk09.jpg
Someone please BURN all of Ryan's ketchup shirts!!!
sfkk06.jpg
Kylie's expression in the front is PRICELESS! Deluge was such a great slide. Out of all the "water coaster" slides we've been on, this is one of the best!
sfkk10.jpg
Now that's a club most of us wish we could get into! =)
sfkk11.jpg
That's Carl "I need TWO plates" at the Italian Feast!
sfkk12.jpg
The "Italian Feast" with the cheesy breadsticks was a hit! (Yes, Italian in Kentucky...and it was GREAT!)
sfkk14.jpg
Strike a pose!
sfkk15.jpg
We all had "Lunch with Bugs!!!"
sfkk16.jpg
And look who we made an "honorary member" of Theme Park Review!

Great update.
Deluge indeed seems to be an amazing ride.

I'm glad that your trip is going so well guys. It's nice Kentucky Kingdom gave you access to more than half of their coasters for your ERT. And people say that Six Flags is weak on customer service.

How was Thunder Run? That one really let me down, as I had heard how awesome it was supposed to be, but I found it to be a bit rough. Is it running well this year (fingers crossed)?

I'm looking forward to the Beech Bend pics. Rumbler is easily the best coaster in Kentucky. Nothing else comes even close.

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

That little girl in the front looks absolutely petrified, and I don't think it's because of the drop.
