I really don't think they will. You can't see it super well in this photo but the shin guards are molded and very padded! I have a feeling these will be very comfy trains! :b

More than likely at Chance's manufacturing plant in Kansas. They're more than capable of making it there since they manufactured a few of the Vekoma coasters during the partnership they had a couple years ago. You can actually check out this satellite view of their factory and see familiar yellow track and a big blue support waiting on a flatbed if you go south a bit on the map. More than likely that's track for Freedom Flyer.

I didn't realize how many parts and pieces they keep on site for their rides. Looks like they have quite the property there and from what I can spot, parts for a gondola wheel.
The man may keep me down but opinions are my own.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

The Kentucky Kingdom web site now includes height limits. Some have changed, for instance the minimum height him Himalaya is 60 inches and Breakdance is 54 inches, o well safety first I guess.

I own the website www.donkey.com

Minimum 60" for a Bobs? That must be a Typo, right? That's almost Double the Height Requirement for any other transportable chance bobs I've seen!

Holy Height Requirements!

56" to ride alone on Roller Skater but you can ride an adult wooden coaster, Thunder Run, alone at 48"? I know manufacturers are different, but still, I don't think Vekoma requires 56" to ride alone. Or hypothetically, junior at 48" tall goes up to FearFall and rides alone then walks over to Roller Skater and is told he needs a responsible person. Huh? I really hope someone was just a little drowsy at the keyboard entering those in for the website.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

Sad to see Enterprise's height requirement go up. Oh well, 54" it is then. 60" minimum to ride Himilaya definitely seems silly to me, along with 54" to ride Roller Skater by yourself (but that must be from the new launch and 15 inversions they implemented recently :Pr ).

Anywho, I made a quick run by the park. Basically the entire front-half of the park received a whole new facelift (as I'm sure the rest of the park did). Lightning Run is only missing the small section of track before the station, the drop tower is indeed purple, and plenty of families were coming in and out of the season pass entrance to get their passes before it goes up to $99.95 soon (act fast if you haven't)! Even with the park not open yet, I can already sense the excitement!

Enterprise's carriages are back on the wheel, and received a new coat of paint.

The only thing missing here is a huge digital clock on the ferris wheel.

Almost all of the new rides are on the front-half of the park (minus all water park rides).

I can really dig the color scheme on the flying scooters. I just wanna know who Professor John is.

The park's skyline from the front isn't half bad! It's gonna be pretty exciting to finally try all of these new rides!

*gasp* The speed slide complex finally rises!

Huss raised their minimum on Enterprise rides to 54" several seasons ago. The requirement for the pirate ship is shocking. Unless something has changed, Huss allows a much lower requirement than the one they have posted :wtf:
