I sent a message concerning Twisted Twins coming back this summer and This is what they sent me.
Thank you for your comment and interest in Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom. Unfortunately Twisted Twins is not part of our 2009 plans at this time. We are still looking at the area for possible expansion in upcoming years. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me at email@example.com. Have a wonderful Holiday Season. We look forward to hosting you during our 2009 season, opening day is set for April 25th.
Have a great day!
I got that in about 12 hours from when I sent it and it is great they are being honest about it(something Cedar Fair is lacking). While I am disappointed since I will be in the area next year for Diamondback and all. I will still visit SFKK and again when the twisted twins do reopen.
Well, that saved me a trip there. I want to go, but want to wait until at least one side of Twisted Twins is running to justify a 6 hour drive each way.
I am a huge wooden coaster fan and I think Twisted Twins is probably the lamest coaster in the park (Though T2 was running surprisingly good when I went). I found SFKK interesting and a diomond in the rough.
Twisted Twins is one of the most uninspired coasters I've ever ridden. I only got to ride one side, but that was fine. It's got a terribly bland layout. Just ride Thunder Run. That's a surprisingly good woodie.
I am out of ideas for what to write in this signature box.
I thought that Twisted Twins was a fun but average coaster. I think one reason I like it is because, even with the g-trains, the ride was pretty smooth, and I didn't get the crap beaten out of me like I expected. The coaster is still average though, and it's a shame really, because the layout could be so much better with the amount of land it uses.
Kentucky Kingdom is a nice park though, but it is probably the worst of the three down there(HW, KI, SFKK). I haven't been to the other three, so I'm just going by ride selection(KI, HW) and service(HW). The coasters are alright, but they didn't seem to be running as well in 2008 as they did in 2006. Unlike the fun relatively smooth ride it was when I rode in 2006, T2 beat me up, and Chang was also rougher, although nothing too bad.
The lack of shade can be a problem, and it was in 2008 when it was probably around 90 when I went. The service was okay though. The employees weren't rude, but one train operation wasn't good. The lines weren't long when I went, but one train operation made the wait time long. Oh well, Kentucky Kingdom is inexpensive compared to Great America, and there is always Greezed Lightning, so I would still go again.
I'm not sure it's worthy, but T2 could at least use the X2 treatment with the new Vekoma trains and vest restraints. By all accounts of what I've heard about Great Nor'easter, the new trains vastly improved the ride. I guess then it could be called T22.

Granted, the park isn't in as good of shape as it was in 2006/7, it's definitely not horrible by any means.
It definitely wasn't just a "bad day." I can usually tell if it's a bad day. These were hands down the worst employees I have ever seen. They were lazy, slow, ineffecient, rude, and unhelpful. It took ten minutes to load on train on Thunder Run. That's not something that just happens for one day. That's a serious problem with staff training.
On top of that, the only rides I enjoyed were Chang and Thunder Run (I'm sure I would have loved Deluge, but I couldn't get to it). T2 is one of the two or three roughest coasters I have ever ridden, if not the roughest. Twisted Twins is long, pointless, and slow.
Incidentally, this was the same day as the S:ToP accident, which only happened because of employee inefficiency.
I don't mean to badmouth the park. I did really like Thunder Run and S:ToP was good before the accident. Chang's smoothness really surprised me, and I'm sure I would have enjoyed Deluge if I'd had the chance to ride it. But at the same time, some of the stuff I saw there was inexcusable.
