People tend to forget, Deluge was the first ever hydromagentic water coaster, it was a prototype. I love it but the constant downtime and issues it has causes headaches for everyone involved. Operators at the park have told me, techs hate it because anytime it goes down, they have to visit the pump room, mechanical room, unload section and then have to hike up to the top to restart the ride. All newer models have the unload and load areas at the same elevation if not in the same station to curb this issue. Prosilde themselves have tried to fix the issues the ride has but can't seem to understand its constant different issues. A new operating system would cost a lot on this ride and with it being 13 years old this year, it might be better just to start over from scratch.

Although I would say it is probably in the top 5 most popular rides in the park IMO. It’s thrilling but still relatively family friendly. I think it would be worth the investment and still build a new one too if possible!

I really liked Deluge when I rode it in 2016, but it has been closed my past 2 visits.

I've not had a chance to ride it, either it's been down or the line has always been down to the bottom of the stairs.

Deluge is a good Water Coaster, but it is showing it's age and should be replaced.

T3 is quickly becoming pink again :lmao: . Perfect for valentines day. Maybe next time when it gets a repaint they should go with a darker red so it lasts a little longer.

Went to King Louie's Winter Walk through, at Kentucky Kingdom yesterday. We learned in the presentation that Halloscream will be back and expanded. The Giant Wheel is being given a refurbishment and Thunder Run received more track replacement. They took us in the print shop, technical service shop and in many back stage areas. It was a nice event, I only took a few photos.

Breakdance, Himalaya, and Thunder Run are also turning 30 this year!

I can't wait to see what they'll do with HalloScream especially. Last year they started making plans in July, but now they have a whole year to prep for whatever they'll pull off. This is especially good considering their calendar states they'll be open Halloween Day Saturday!

Yeah, I;m excited to see what they do for Halloscream. Wonder if they'll use Oak Island again?
