Skycatcher and Cyclos look like they should be fun but the placement of them are rather odd, especially Skycatcher.

^Nice to see they are going to landscape the area underneath Lightning Run. Should be a huge improvement.

I've never been to this park before, but I'm already making plans for next year! Kentucky Kingdom and Holiday World, I will see you in 2015!

I was last at the park in 2001 before this year, and I was impressed with how nice it looked after sitting dormant for awhile. I wish them continued success, but I still think the best thing for T2 is the scrap heap. It just was not and will never be a good ride.

It seems it may be reusing the old go-karts queue, which I've indicated with some blue lines.

i dont think it will be there looking at the map and google and bing maps it look like it will be more over in the old dirt parking lot that was in front of where chang used to be.

I wonder if T3 will receive a new color scheme or just a re-paint.

It will receive new trains, and a new color scheme for 2015. ( From KK reply to someone's comment on their FB page.) now, if we could find out what color.

And I agree on the placement of rides. Skycatcher is reeeally singled-out among the other dry rides. Like, it's basically in the water park now, haha. But they gotta to make-do with whatever available plots of land they have. Plus, I'm sure the view at the top from where it'll be would be pretty nice.

Lighting Run looks almost inverted from this angle! :)

Cyclos?

Is that like a Midi Discovery?
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

^ Yes, it it one that will do a full 360 degree loop. Skycatcher is most likely where it is because that is one of the few areas in the park they can build over 100 feet.

Solid red? That's boring. I hope that they actually repaint it instead of just taking the black off.
