With all these great compact coasters KK now has, I'm beginning to think that the strict height restriction they work under is somewhat of a blessing in disguise!

This is just a perfect addition for this park. A coaster that's an absolute blast for every demographic that has an ultra-low height requirement when you're competing with Holiday World to attract families is brilliant.

Man, this thing has been hyped. Hopefully, I'll ride it sooner than later.

It's a quick ride but I think everyone will be happy. 3 rides just wasn't enough for me.

Great report! I expected nothing less from this coaster considering just how great Gravity Group's other smaller wood coasters are. They're airtime machines!
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Rod, Voyage, Coaster (PNE Playland), Phoenix, Boulder Dash
Top 5 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Untamed, Expedition GeForce, Twisted Colossus, Schwur des Karnan

Maybe they were referring to the height? Which the coaster only hits 47ft.

It feels faster than 35, which is a good thing because this is indeed a very nice coaster for its size. Lots of airtime pops on the coaster (Especially the backseat), and a wonderful middle-ground family/starter coaster for sure.

Earned my Wings last night. Like everyone is saying it's a solid coaster, with some great airtime. Love how it looks along the back of Hurricane Bay. Can't wait to get back tomorrow, to ride some more, on opening day.

I love Kentucky Kingdom. Looks like so much fun.
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks
