I know their popping up everywhere now, but they are a pretty sweet ride! I would even go so far to say that Zinga @ HW made me a waterpark fan. And it will draw some badly needed attendance to KK's waterpark.
Moosh...does KK have enough room for another coaster, aren't they somewhat limited for space being on the state fairground property? Could that outdoor stadium over behind T2 be leveled for another coaster? I mean, I don't think I've ever seen it in use.*** This post was edited by Chadley 2/15/2005 6:29:53 PM ***

Actually Chadley, we use it all the time. During the summer, it is used for Ohio Valley Wrestling (WWE's traning company). They are there 7 or 8 Friday's a year. We also use it for our Gosple Celebration, in which Kurt Frankin and Fred Hammond have graced the stage. It's used once again for WDJX Birthday Bash, in which Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey, JoJo, Brooke Hogan, Ryan Cabra (<- sp?) and others have played.
Yes, it's true, we need another coaster badly, but at the moment we are working on turning around the direction of the park, by improving Guest Service, and I believe it's the best m ove we can make at this time.
I don't know, Chadley. I thought there was some room behind Chang.
It just really irks me when a park -- these days especially any cash-strapped Six Flags -- adds a new attraction and some dimwit responds with "BFD" so something to that effect. And yet if they'd added nothing those same idiots would complain that there are no new attractions.
People like that need to stop thinking as an enthusiast who knows that there are Profilde funnels everywhere. To the majority of park guests this will be new and exciting...and, yes, a BFD!
I hear that the Tornado is going to possibly sit where Quake has been sadly sitting idle. I guess I'm the only Quake fan but chances are with as little as it's ran (it has been running when I've visited SFKK only twice since 1997) it's time to say goodbye.
Odd, I've been to SFKK at least a dozen times on my travels since 2000 and I've ridden Quake on each visit. The park has always run a pretty dull program on it...trust me, people...you're not missing anything.
Can you grab me a bolt from Quake like the huge one that fell off it while it was running the last time I saw it operate (back in 2001) to remember it by. I was in line at the time and they e-stopped it and it was down for the rest of the day.
