I was at Kentucky Kingdom yesterday and the Deluge was open, operational and quite popular.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

It opened last weekend. I got to ride it this morning before working there. It's very fun! The magnets don't really kick-in intill about half way up the hills. They propell you forward very fast and you even get a little pop of air at the top of almost every hill! :b However, I didn't like how you barely even get wet, just some mist in your face. It should almost be out in the regular park, and not the water park imo. I meant to bring my camera, but didn't want to deal with it all day at work. I'll be sure to get some pictures soon.

EDIT: I might add that the park is looking really nice this year! New paint jobs on buildings and rides, new signs, landscaping, improved music, and even enough trash cans to make Cedar Fair happy! ;) They have really stepped it up and cleaned alot. Much better than previous years. Kudos Six Flags!

I'm afraid that I now won't be able to get some pictures untill next weekend. I work all week from opening to closing, and thus have no free time in the park. My apologes. :(
I Love Llamas :)

Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom

First, I want to dispel the myths a few members are leaving regarding SFKK. If you have not been to the park this year, you have not been to SFKK. We are working diligently to provide our guests with an exceptional experience here at our park. We are focused on families and have made vast strides to deliver an exceptional kids product with our two kids areas located in the theme park.

We have also listened to what our guests have had to say about our property over the past several years. We developed a long range plan with that in mind and delivered an amazing waterpark expansion and re-brand to Six Flags Splashwater Kingdom. The all new Deluge along with Buccaneer Beach have been huge hits for all of our guests.

Deluge is an amazing experience with 4 person rafts making their way through a serpentine series of high-bank turns in enclosed tunnels and up-hill climbs via the LIM technology really catches you buy surprise.

Anyone who visits our park and does not see the changes we are putting in place and the progress we are making to deliver on an exceptional experience just doesn’t get the bigger picture. I have been in the business for 20 years and I am more excited at this point in my career than any other thus far.

There are those whom may disagree and that is certainly their right… however, I hope they have truly made their visit to the park. I have given multiple tours this year to show everyone what we have to offer and where we are going in the future. I extend an invitation to anyone who is interested spending time learning more about what our great park has to offer… just contact me via my cell phone 972 922-9986 to schedule a tour of SFKK.

I have been at this property for 18 months now and I assure you SFKK is a different park heading in the right direction!

Hi there Jay!

Much appreciated on your posting to the site. It's great to hear from park management and know they are listening to our compliments and even our criticisms.

I have certainly witnessed some positive changes throughout all the Six Flags parks we have visited so far this year (Magic Mountain, Great Adventure, and Six Flags America) and we are looking forward to our visit to Kentucky Kingdom in August.

Hopefully we'll see you there and get a chance to meet up and see the improvements first hand!

Thanks for the info. It's nice to get some park managers here on TPR. (I don't know of any others)

^ One note for responding to a park official....it's awesome that they have posted and made it known that they read and want to interact with the group, BUT....please try not to bombard them with "What attraction are you getting next...." questions.

While I too would love to see them get a dark ride, remember that they just opened a really kick-ass looking water ride! Enjoy that for this season, and then maybe towards the end of the year we might get some 'hints' as to what might be in the parks future....

I'm looking forward to my first SFKK visit this coming Wednesday. We're taking a break from Coaster Con and spending the day in Louisville.

Several people have told me not to waste my time but I've never let that stop me before.
