I should add that we have S.F. passes which is a pro for going.
Thanks. *** Edited 7/6/2008 5:17:32 PM UTC by DEK***
Oh, and while riding Thunder Run the other day, I am *shocked* to report that TOP ELIMINATOR DRAGSTERS HAS STILL NOT BEEN REMOVED!
(What's the hold-up?!?!)
If you're going to Holiday World for your first ride on Voyage, I'd say go ahead and give SFKK a shot. They're close and you have passes anyway.
While a few rides are closed, It's really a gem of a park. It's in a nice location. Home to a hard to find classic in Greezed Lightning. T2 is as bad as everyone says it is but Chang is a good ride. Thunder Run is probably my favorite Dinn & Sommers as it actually has air. However, the waterpark is actually the best part about the park.
The waterpark has a nice amount of slides, a nice sized wavepool, your typical lazy river (one of the nicer ones though), and a water coaster. this is probably by far the best waterpark I've visitied.
I say it's worth a visit. Prices are a bit high but not as bad as the Cedar Fair chain. I say give it a shot, it's a rather nice park.
Chang is absolutely my favorite stand-up, Thunder Run is a surprising treat for the already-mentioned airtime, and Greezed Lightnin' is just awesome, (I can ride that coaster over and over). And if it's a warm enough day, grab a ride on Deluge, (their water coaster), it's a blast and you don't need to enter the waterpark to ride it.
Lastly, Oscar Meyers "Lunchables" has coupons out for free admission to "many" SF parks for children 11 and under. If you're over 11 the coupons can be used for $10 off a general admission ticket. They aren't good at SFGAdv or on any 3-park combo ticket.
And I almost forgot! SFKK is not open for regular operation during the first two weeks of August...that is the Kentucky State Fair, and KK has an arrangement to open certain rides for the fair, but the majority of the park is not operating during that time.
You have Great Adventure's rides, Great America Space Shuttle America, Houdini and Bumper Cars at SFOT, SFA's Two-Face, Great America Hurricane Harbor Wahoo Racers, and so on. There are probably more SBNO in the Six Flags chain.
For them to move the waterparks expansion in the direction of the old Top Eliminator Dragsters and Twisted Twins would be a good layout to me. It would give them plenty of space to build on without messing with the existing amusement park rides too much. That waterpark is already the main reason most people come out to the park anyway, and it's really shaping out as a really good little waterpark, even with Splashin' Safari about an hour away. Louisville can use a waterpark like this, and I believe the cities population can more than support it. Don't kid yourself, this park does have a market, and while it's never packed to the hilt, it does stay consistently busy.
Park hours are now strictly waterpark hours even for the amusement park.
Park opened May 10th instead of late March/early April from previous years which puts it close to the waterparks seasonal opening.
I will go one step further and say that the whole back half of the park will eventually be all waterpark with Chang , T2, and Rollerskater being relocated to other parks. ThunderRun? I don't know.
Obviously as mentioned above, Mile High Falls and Blizzard River stay put and absorbed into the waterpark.
My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.
