This looks great! We really enjoyed Kentucky Kingdom and it's nice to see them expanding.

Here you go!


Seriously though Kentucky Flyer is looking great
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

Very nice report. Yeah, seeing it in person, I really, really, reeeally loved how KY Flyer looked against the backside of the water park, and I was right in it giving a beach boardwalk/"Coney Island" feel. It looked great in person and will definitely be a fun coaster to try out once completed.

I haven't gotten to edit any of my lil video clips from the tour just yet, but I might have a few things to show at some point later as well. Overall, very cool and thankful of KK's folks to show us around the park and get some really great angles of the coaster.

Kingdom Fries are Fries with Cheese Sauce, Bacon Bits and Ranch Dressing. They are delicious and glad to see them returning.

I'm sad to hear Fire Chief and Loony Balloony are on the way out. Those were some of the rides I remember the most from my childhood along with Pounce N Bounce, Rowdy Racers. I remember hearing some stories about the Fire Engine getting stuck at the top some this past season and it had a really bad shake at times according to some friends who work at the park so it makes sense for them to remove it. Rock N Roller looked really out of place this past season so I'm glad it is getting relocated to the kids area. Kentucky Flyer is starting to look better and better and I'm a huge fan if the way it frames the waterpark. Hopefully this season is better for the park, it seemed like it was never busy last summer which I believe is a reason why the back half of the park would open an hour late during the week to save on labor as well as closing some rides with larger staffing needs on days it wasn't busy.

Staffing was an issue for the park on some days. Also, it made sense to close off the back half of the park an hour prior to the rest of the park. By closing most of those rides, they can get the majority of guests moved to the front half of the park and like you said, save money on labor. If I remember correctly, the park only did this towards the end of the season, but I could be wrong because I was always on the north side of the park. As for popularity of the park, it had its days. Weekends were typically slammed, week days didn't have many guests but I wouldn't say the park was dead or not busy. I really wish the park would spend a little more on advertising Kentucky Flyer, I have seen maybe one advertisement for it.
