I also really appreciated Ed coming out to talk to the group as well about selecting certain manufacturers for the park that fits within their budget and pleases more than just the enthusiast crowd. Kentucky Flyer is a really good example of that push, imo.

Don't mean to double post (Edit: nvm, guess I was making this while sfkk was posting too!), but I did have some stuff from the tour around the park for any interested.

When we first arrived behind T3 and walked to the management building.

They're doing their special again this year: 2 days at the park + free drinks for $29.95 when you visit kentuckykingdom.com/ilovecoasters

HUGE time jump, because I shot most of the tour on my camera (see YouTube video above). This was in the print shop, which is the lil shed building underneath Lightning Run.

Speaking of Lightning Run, walking out the garage door out back greets you to the sweet floor level S-bend curves on the coaster.

100ft first drop. Unassuming, but VERY steep and powerful, especially in the backseat!

Lots of photo ops for folks walking as far as underneath the first drop, and over to the footers of what was Greezed Lightnin'.

Awesome of the park to give us such a closeup tour of Lightning Run, which was my personal highlight of the event! Big thanks to them!

Are the seals coming back or is this replacing the seal show?

^Should get Birds, Sea Lions, and Dogs this year. They are really going all in on the animals haha. Although last year the birds were there from Memorial day to July 4 and I’m not sure if that schedule will modified at all.

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

Late April opening date and buyout dates have quietly been removed from 2020 operating calendar. Now looking at an opening date of Saturday May 2 best case scenario.

Not surprised, what with all the mayhem currently going on. I've been keeping an eye on other parks who have had earlier opening dates and have stayed relatively quiet about it with no changes so far.

Great video!!! - If I could provide just one tip of feedback... It's that, IMO, the video would have been about 1,900 times better if you would have muted the audio from the actual video with all of the background noise, and just went with the music! (Just my 2 cents worth though.)
Bigger is not always better.

I'd look for most of them to announce the opening date extensions within a week or so. KI just pushed back to May 1st. Parks are still waiting to see and I would think that extending opening dates publicly is risking losing more interest.
