Timberliner trains are the most comfortable coaster trains I have ever been in.

Here is a picture I took of wooden warriors train. It was like riding in a lazy boy.

Olympus the loading is really slow because they literally lean back w/ their full weight on each bar and tug. I wonder if they've had issues of them not being fully locked before.

IIRC, Mine Blower's ops give a normal tug on them after pushing in a lil, not so much a full body weight yank.

They are indeed pretty cozy. Maybe not B&M hyper bucket seat type of cozy, but a very good fitting for wood coasters. Even when inverting.

Kentucky Kingdom has been active on Twitter over the last few weeks, sharing new photos of the construction progress on the new Kentucky Flyer wooden coaster opening at the park later this year!

I'm obsessed with the park's social accounts here lately. The accounts really engage with the public and keep us all updated. Props to the new PR guy!

That's almost on par with Lightning Run being the tallest, fastest, longest, steepest, and most wild Hyper GT-X roller coaster in the world.

I mean isn't that close to the same thing as a park saying that tallest lift and longest drop are two separate records? :lol: ;)

I'm all for a park doing whatever they have to in order to hype up a ride. It'll only help increase attendance.
