I feel like until you've felt the king of launches you shouldn't have such a strong opinion.... who knows maybe he's ridden it... but I can't imagine not liking launches after that beast.


Is that the 2001 ride that had a plethora of issues up until it was greatly updated a decade and a half after opening? Yeah... Tell the guy who is very fiscally responsible all about that one.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

And just of pure irony, of the top two Golden Ticket Award "new for 2016 coaster" winners, #2 at KK still has more uptime than Dollywood's #1. ;) Love me a good launched coaster, but even they all have their own special demons to deal with.

Yup. It's why he sometimes refers to folks in the community about ride experiences in other parks.

I realized I should have added from our visit last week that masks and social distancing were pretty much non-existent at the waterpark even though they did have security with megaphones regularly reminding people to keep their distance. So, fair warning if you go.

^ Wave3 showed a live shot of the wave pool one night and I saw how packed and close people were and you could tell they weren't wearing masks and I was like oh hell no, I'm not going anywhere near there.

I'm just saying in general outside of the pool and there was 0 social distancing in the wave pool.

This feels similar to Bluegrass Fair in Lexington who switched from Belle City Amusements to Kissel Entertainment last year, and the ride lineup was SO MUCH better for it! I'm hoping the same can be said for this year's State Fair ride lineup. NAME's midway felt like it had been... lacking, the few times I've been back to the fair.

Welp, the fair just confirmed it is closed off to the general public, so no midway this year.

A quality park employee also confirmed the RMC raptor possibility Monday when I was at the park. He said it will be going back by the Larson Loop Eye of the Storm. If that holds water, that will be the 3rd Schilke designed rollercoaster in the park. Pretty sweet. He also said that the park has a 200 ft height limit due to the airport vicinity, and that Kentucky Flyer was almost a hyper. And BTW, I preferred my Monday at KK over my Sunday at HW by far. Better selection of coasters
