I do feel like Kentucky Flyer is getting more attention than any other attraction they've opened has. That might just be me though..

Had me a zen ride, backseat, on Kentucky Flyer yesterday. Love that coaster, it packs a punch for it's size.

Hi - I'm looking to visit Kentucky Kingdom for the first time and I'm wondering if anyone can give me an idea about what the crowds are like during Kentucky Fair Saturdays - what kind of wait times would I expect on the better coasters? Do you think Labor Day weekend would be less busy?

Trying to figure out how to schedule my trip to hit some of the parks around these parts later this year. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Labor Day was pretty busy last season, fair is kind of a hit or miss. During the fair, you'll have to pay $10 to park, parking is a huge hassle, and the park typically offers some special admission deal to reel in crowds. Even when it is busy, the waits are typically no more than 30 minutes per coaster.

During State Fair you'll have to pay for parking and admission to the State Fair as well as a separate admission to KK.

Might as well go this weekend, since you won't have anymore hockey to watch this season after tonight.

The State Fair is really fun, their craft beer & whisky tent last year was awesome. Looked like it was a hit too, so I'd imagine they'd bring it back. The Fair has some pretty good rides that Kentucky Kingdom doesn't have, like 1001 Nachts. Also some mildly racist children's coasters that you can skip.

I went 2 years ago on a KY state fair Saturday and KK was completely dead. Every coaster and flat ride was a walk on. I also went to Holiday World the next day and that place was just as dead. So if you haven't been there I would highly suggest it as it's not too far from Louisville.

Thanks for the info, I think it sounds like we should try to go on a Saturday during KY fair instead of Labor Day. Might be interesting to check out the Fair too.

Yes, we are planning to go to Holiday World (I've been there before but my wife hasn't, but I haven't ridden Thunderbird). We're really looking forward to it! :D

Don't put that donkey on the floor!
