In the presentation at King Louie's Walk through they mentioned that Dole Whip might be making an appearance for the 2019 season. I've never had it, but a lot of Disney fans are obsessed with it. I'm excited.

I've had it at Holiday World and it's outstanding. Very refreshing on a hot day.

Didn't get to go to the Winter walk-through, woke up sick Saturday morning, was bummed that I had to miss it. Got some pics from this morning, that Mark Brunner shared.They are moving along pretty quick, considering the weather we been having. I'm really liking the look and placement of this coaster.

Has Kentucky Kingdom released how many cars will be on each train?

That's a lot of floater airtime! I'm excited to see how many people call this their new favorite coaster at the park (if many people at all do - I know Storm Chaser will probably always be #1 to me)

Judging from all of the others with similar style and size, I'm betting it'll be 6 cars.

Have some more pics of Kentucky Flyer construction, thanks to Mark Brunner. I'm excited about this coaster, at my home park, adds on to their punch! These pics where from Friday, the turnaround most likely got finished today.

That's not so bad if they make a commitment to two train operation. One train operation will be pretty brutal with only 12 people per ride.

If it's anything like other Kingdom coasters, they'll always have two trains operating on the weekends. Sometimes they'll have two trains running on week days if it's busy enough.If they only have one train on the track and the crew notices that the queue is getting pretty full they can call for a second train to be transferred over.
