Distance from HW to SFKK?

Wednesday, March 19, 2003 6:38 AM
Can anyone please tell me about how long it takes to get from Holiday World to Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom? I am going to SRM and would like to take a side trip to KK so I need to know how much extra traveling I will be doing. Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer me!

About an hour.... but you'll lose an hour because of the time change.

When I checked www.mapblast.com it said about an hour and a half...but KicksTheSky swears it is only a half an hour. I'm so confused! (not that it takes a lot to confuse me though!)

I think it was between an hour and an hour and a half....a good estimate is between 45 and 90 min....yes I know that is a wide window...but I did it last year and I am pretty sure it was about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Beast I can certainly believe the hour and 15 minutes... because we arent all saints who drive the speed limit :) Thank you Den and Beast for your prompt help!

It takes about 1 hour 15 minutes in travel time (unless you're a total speed demon).

By the clock, it is one hour *later* in Louisville than in Santa Claus, so depending which direction you're going, you either gain an hour (SFKK to HW takes 15 minutes) or lose an hour (HW to SFKK takes 2 1/4 hours).

Hope this helps! Paula

Just to be different, I'll say 5 minutes.

I also have a question, as my fiancee and I are planning to hit SFKK on that Sunday after SRM. About how long do you think it would take to ride all the major rides (possibly even just the coasters) from the time the park opens? I need to plan for about an 8 or 9 hour drive home, and was wondering if it's worth taking an extra day (Monday) off work.

NoChic - since everyone else has chimed in I'll make just this suggestion: I high suggest using Mapquest or Yahoo Maps. They can be very useful tools when it comes to getting an idea of mileage between 2 points. Neither are 100% exact and they suck when it comes to giving directions but once you know an approximate mileage between two points you should be able to figure out driving times.

It is my personal belief that Lesourdsville Lake is closed for 2003. I'll let you know if anything is announced.

I recall reading a trip report where the person posting said they had expected to gain an hour coming from SFKK headed to HW because of the time change, only to find that wasn't the case because "that part of Indiana didn't participate in Daylight Savings Time"(or words to that effect). So, by the clock, it took about 1 hr, 15 mins. Any truth to this?

Paula, does that statement make any sense?

Until Paula can enlighten us further, I *do* know that certain parts of IN follow daylight savings and others do not...beyond that, we'll need some "local sources"...;)

The majority of Indiana does NOT use daylight savings time, and I believe this includes Santa Claus, IN. Therefore during most of the coaster season, HW is and hour behind SFKK. I believe the only time you would not encounter the time switch is at the very end of the season.

But I thought HW was in the tiny portion of IN that *does* practice Daylight Savings? I know you cross the timeline just minutes before you get to the park...

We're always an hour "behind" Louisville. This time of the year, we're even behind most of the rest of Indiana.

There is a cluster of counties in SW Indiana which are on central time during the winter months...while the rest of the state never changes its clocks during the year.

How's this for weird: This time of year, I live on one time and work on the other. It actually takes me 7 minutes to get home...but this time of the year I leave home at 7:50 am and arrive at 7:00 am. And going home takes an hour and 10 minutes. Guess I need to take a new route home! :)

But April through October, we're all on the same time--but we're *still* an hour behind Louisville. And we don't observe DST.

Make sense? Yeah, right... Paula

Now that I am thoroughly confused (it doesn't take much) when SRM rolls around, are you the same time as Chicago or an hour ahead?

Hmm, I stand corrected. I didn't think HW was quite that far southwest.

Anyway, if I understand correctly now, HW is always in the central time zone, and DOES observe daylight savings. Therefore, HW time should always be Chicago time.

Meanwhile, SFKK is always in the eastern time zone, and also observes daylight savings. SFKK time should always be the same as New York time.

The majority of Indiana though, matches Chicago in the summer and New York in the winter.

Is that right?

Oh, who knows?!

Yes, in May we are on the same time as Chicago, St. Louis and Indianapolis.

I think. :) Paula

Thats pretty funny Paula! If I remember correctly, Indiana actually has 3 time zones. As a county or two near Ohio follows EST. Everything in Indiana is weird. I guess maybe thats why Indiana's woodies are so amazing??
