Thanks for taking notice in the interest of the gp (or rather TPR freaks here), Jake! I have been to SFKK a few years ago, and it was a decent park. Chang is a great ride, and I will give the park props for having the world's first dueling woodie and a shuttle loop, plus a great wild mouse. As for the general park, I have one major suggestion. Basically add more shaded areas, and a few more bathroom/water fountain points in the park. Especially on a hot day, this makes all the difference.
Hopefully I'll stop by sometime this year and take a spin on deluge. I need to go back and ride Penguin anyways, so I might aswell go when I'm off work.

Had a great time at SFKK last August. I only had a few hours before my flight out of Louisville, it was raining, and I was soaked... but I had a great time. Operations were a little slow, but then again, there were probably fewer than 100 people at the park. And everyone was polite. The woman at the parking booth called me "honey," and Bugs and Daffy gladly took a picture with a crazy, soaked out-of-towner.
As I walked around, I couldn't help but think that it was a very nice-looking park, and that I'd love to come back on a nicer day.
I am an idiot.

Hello Jay! I'm very glad to hear from you on the TPR boards. I am a cast member here at SFKK in the retail department and just want to applaud your hard work for our park over the past year. As I am at Kentucky Kingdom nearly everyday, I have noticed first hand all of the improvements added. Not only Deluge and the new kiddy area, but other minor additions are definitely steps in the right direction, such as the Cabanas, Brunch with Bugs, Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream, shadebrellas, cleaner faculties, tons of trash cans, new signs, fresh coats of paint, landscaping, and of corse friendier staff.
Honestly, I use to look down upon my homepark in years past, but I am now proud of SFKK and its new positive outlook. We all believe the family friendly approach to management is definitely a change in the right direction. As both a staff member and a guest, I truly appreciate all you have done for Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Police confirmed that a girl's feet have been cut off at Six Flags' Kentucky Kingdom. Officials said they got the call around 5 p.m. Thursday and both her feet were detached at the ankle. According to MetroSafe dispatch supervisors, the girl was riding the Superman Tower of Power, which is 177 feet tall and drops riders at 54 miles per hour. According to Kentucky Kingdom, the girl was injured when the ride malfunctioned.
this was just on the tv like 2 seconds ago.
