Negative-G recently added photos of Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom, including a bunch of photos from the new-for-2005 Tornado water slide.
Holiday World's PR "Raven Maven" Paula Werne took us around the park for a little construction tour, including a spot where she said, "Next year this view will be very different." That picture is a part of the update, in addition to construction tour pictures that include The Raven and Revolution.

Ehh... sorry Paul, but Bond's pictures were just a little bit better than yours. I look forward to seeing more of his point of view in the future. ;)

At least they finally got rid of that giant paperweight, err, I mean "The Quake".
One of these days, SFKK will realize that they can, in fact, run more than ONE train on Chang and T2. Visited two weekends ago, and what should've been a 10-15 minute wait for Chang ended up being close 40 minutes because of one train operation. T2 had a similiar situation.
Oh, and Thunder Run was running great. I wish they could figure a way to get two trains on that. :)

There were plans for a transfer track on Thunder Run and footers were poured for it but back when it was Kentucky Kingdom the empty building across from the entrance cut into that space and unless they remove it they can't put a transfer track and a second train in.

Love the pic of your son taking the photo of Raven. :)
That'll be his profile pic on the forums one day.

Bond's got quite a while before he's big enough for the forums but yes that is a cool pic. He was so excited about taking pictures for th site. He's of that age where he's all about daddy.

I was very close to going to Thunder in Louisville, but I decided to stay in Lexington and party because of the temperature. I'm sure you are right about the park being empty as Thunder draws a ridiculous amount of people. I am actually going to the derby this year because school will be over, and the pressure of school work will be off. I know an empty day at KK would be fun, but I just have to experience the derby from the infield.

I would love to see the Derby or more importantly people watch at the Derby. Just a suggestion go get a copy of Hunter S. Thompson's "Generation Of Swine" and read his bit on the Derby. It's great.

It is finally great to see Quake go at SFKK! But what really interest me is the picture of the space at HW that will look different next year!!!! Maybe another coaster???
