IIRC the park becomes part of the State Fair each year. It should be open, and admission to the State Fair midway gets you admission to the park, or something similar to that.

Have you searched for a KY State Fair website?

SFKK is the actual midway for the Kentucky State Fair, while the rides are still open they are only open with tickets or POP bands just like a normal carnival. Season passes are not accepted and admission is admission to the state fair plus whatever ride tickets or pop bands you use.

Ahhh i see, thanks :)

EDIT: Has anyone gone to this before? My mom and I were going to stop for like an hour, but with this I dunno. I just wanted to go in ride Twisted twins, chang, the new shuttle, and the other woodie.. Are the lines really long at the fair? Thanks again.

From what I hear, the place is packed during the fair. Add that to SFKK's typical single-train op and you have a giant mess... However, I have never actually been - so take that for what it is worth...

You'd be lucky to get one ride in an hour. I would avoid the place like the plauge during the fair.

I've heard as much from a ride op when I visited the park. He said the place is a total wreck during the fair.

Just got back from the fair. :) I just stayed on the carnival rides midway, because there's no reason to pay for SFKK rides that I can ride for free with my pass. However, from what I could see, there was hardly anybody on the rides. GL would launch with only half a dozen people on board.

Planning your trip for later is probably the best idea, because tickets can get pricey fast. A book of 24 tickets is $15 bucks, and that will get you 3 rides on major attractions, 4 at the most.

Oh, I'll add that the Ring of Fire on the traveling fair midway was closed, I presume because of the accident a few days ago.

Ryan, not to get off topic, but what was at the fair in terms of midway rides...anything new and/or exciting we should know about?

Never been to the Kentucky State Fair, but i heard some pretty negative reviews. Why cant we get portable roller coasters like the Europeans??

Bill-- They had a portable coaster with single cars, no idea of the name. Two Frisbee-like rides, one was called Freak Out (is this a true FreakOut?) and the other Feureball. You sit suspended from both of these, and the ride swings back and forth.

A few other noteworthy rides would be an Enterprise, "Touchdown" (like a twirl-a-whirl but it goes vertical), and a Ring of Fire which was closed.

Adam can probably clear up any questions about mfrs. and the like, but I don't see him around right now...;)
