Can someone who's going PM me about King Louie's Winter Walkthrough? I have some questions but I don't want to hijack this thread.

I can't understand why this looks so fun to me, but it does.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

For sure. Crazy to think of how much airtime the entire park has going into 2019, especially now with Kentucky Flyer being their 4th coaster (out of 6 total) with airtime in it. I'm also particularly fond of the sort of 'beachfront coaster' setting it will have against Hurricane Bay.

On top of those photos, Kentucky Kingdom's What's New page has a bunch of other nice photo updates of the coaster posted periodically as well.

I love the classic Boardwalk wooden coaster look (white supports and red railings). This is such a great addition to the park and Kentucky Kingdom is really on my radar now.

Not much of an update, but today the park gave returning team members of the ride department a glance at Kentucky Flyer. I'm no Mark Brunner, but here are my pictures. ;)

I absolutely love Lightning Run. I actually have such a tough time deciding if I like it more than Storm Chaser or not.

D'aww, it's cute.

Also, the photos reinforce my boardwalk coaster perspective.
