Agreed, I hope these are placed around T3. The coaster feels so awkward in the water park.

yeah, the back side of the park could use some "new hotness' All the new additions to the dry side were up front this year.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

I'd assume with the Zepplin ride being moved further north of the park, they'd place one of the flats in its old spot. Plus, the drag strip's tracks were removed when I last saw them from Mile High Falls, so there's another spot!

So very happy so see a star flyer coming to the park. The one at the Kentucky State Fair was my favorite addition to the midway's lineup, so this taller version is sure to be a hit with families! It also adds to the park's skyline yet again! :b

I'm sure the Zepplins old spot will not be used til 2016 when Twisted Twins reopens. They will most likely use Dragsters old spot for Cyclos and put the SkyCatcher in the spot by Bounty, where the old Picnic/Haunted House used to be.

That sounds like a very good possibility.

I think Cyclops is the Zamperla Midi Discovery that spins you around 360 degrees (like Luna 360.) Is the swing ride from Zamperla or ARM?
Vekoma is English means, "We don't have the budget for a B&M so let's just order a Vekoma."

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

The park map has been updated. Skycatcher will be placed behind the picnic area. Cyclos will be placed behind Professor John's Flying machine.

Its good to see Kentucky Kingdom making the best use out of the space they got considering it's a small park.

For those who cannot see the newest park map linked on the last page (probably a majority of you, the image is ridiculously huge, it took around three minutes to load for me), I've created an image showing where Skycatcher probably will go based on both the map and an aerial from Bing Maps. It seems it may be reusing the old go-karts queue, which I've indicated with some blue lines.
