Discuss theme parks, roller coasters, and mules!

To be fair, there have been instances of coasters debuting with tallest lift but not biggest drop.
Believe it or not, KI's Vortex opened as world's tallest coaster in '87 (which needless to say, was a record shortlived)
Its 138 ft drop wasn't the biggest though. That still belonged to American Eagle (147 ft), and then ironically enough Beast (141 ft).
Back when woodies still ran the show

I know there are instances, I'm just teasing.

Man, that looks like so much fun, I'm expecting this ride to a good amount of quality airtime
. I want this to open NOW.

It'll be weird having to cut through the water park to get to it, but Kentucky Kingdom's layout has never been conventional. Ultimately it looks great as a backdrop to the water park.

^ You'll enter next to Sky Catcher, on the edge of Hurricane bay. But I see what you're saying.

I really do wish there was a more defined path around the water park at the park. I still find myself walking through the waterpark to get to some rides.

I think Thunder Run should have a tunnel at the bottom of the turn around after the lift hill. With mist and thunder sound. Like you're running from thunder. It would give it a little more theme to the coaster.

^ I think they were going with more of the appreciation of simplicity aspect. Not only that, but all of that costs money. I don't think KK was looking to spend big bucks.

At least a tunnel, I think the ride experience would be better and different. Thunder Run has been around for a long time.
