Kentucky Rumbler rocks!! It's a great coaster and a perfect fit for the park. Beech Bend is a nice little park and I can't wait to go back in a few weeks to see the place in full operation.

Dang lucky people! GG or GCI need to be invited to Castle Park next. ;)
By the way, where do you buy giant scissors like that?

Congratulations to the Jones family on a perfect fit to your park. The Kentucky (Royal) Rumbler is an instant Top 5 coaster for me. The fact that such an all out, fast paced, out of your seat ride, can be packed into such a small frame, just truly amazes me. Kentucky Rumbler is the kind of coaster that has proven once again, that the best things come in smaller packages.

Awesome Coaster, will be back for Rumblefest. For sure in my top 10 maybe my top 5. I have to get back on a few others to see.

I was there as well for opening day. My first time at BB. Decent park, it was clean and everyone was friendly. Food there is much cheaper than most parks.
I was impressed with Rumbler. It just goes to show you do not have to be the biggest or fastest to be a great ride. This is a very re-ridable coaster. I got around 30 rides on Saturday! No waiting all day. It really seems longer than 2827 feet.
I thought it was funny, on the hand written sign as you go into the park they had all the stats and they had put it the coaster had 12 minutes of airtime. It had airtime but not quite THAT much. Very fun, everyone needs to go!
