The owner of the park, Ed Hart, has said on multiple occasions he doesn't like launched coasters because it kills the anticipation of going up a lift hill
Not just that, but I could see them being an issue for a smaller park on a budget. They're pretty expensive, and they require a ton of maintenance. Plus, there is a lot of downtime. I think that for the purpose of KK, where the ride-up is a little more modest (in terms of numbers, NOT quality), it wouldn't be ideal to have a signature ride in your line-up that people may have traveled for that may have a lot of unexpected downtime when there aren't a lot of rides in the park beyond it.
The park is hosting an event for team members during the second week of February. They are going to show everyone the progress of Kentucky Flyer and do a few other things. I'll be sure to update with pictures!
^ I to will be there and cannot wait to see the progress of the ride (and maybe/hoping to stand right up next to it like we where allowed to do for Storm Chaser/Lightning Run during the first event the park held in 2017)
