I had the worst ride on a coaster (T2) this year at SFKK that I've ever had. Twisted Twins, well has Gerstlauer's. The Mouse is for kids. That leaves Chang, with long lines, Greezed Lightning, and Thunder Run.

They really need to do something about the bridges across the road. It's a pretty big pain.

There is quit a bit of land behind the batman theater thing, but they'd have to buy out the few homes that are there. Maybe they should move the water park there. Or maybe re-route the road that cuts through the center to back there.

so there's nothing good?
I went there this summer and didn't get to ride anything b/c it stormed the whole time and even in the breaks when it wasn't raining for a while, they weren't making any attempts to open anything.

I was really disappointed because I was looking forward to Thunder Run. I want to go back, but if nothing's that great then I guess I didn't miss anything. *** Edited 10/27/2004 4:44:00 PM UTC by Janet***

I rank Thunder Run higher than Raven. Chang is great, T2 DOES NOT hurt, the mouse is okay, they have great flats, an awesome water plunge ride, a waterpark, and Thunder run.

I'd pay full admission just to ride Thunder Run.

Ride Thunder Run.

I personally think every single coaster in the park is atleast a 5 (average on my scale). So everything is atleast decent. T2 is good or bad depending on who you asked, I thought it was a 4-5. Chang was great, Thunder Run was great. One of the twins was good. Greeze was great, the mouse was fun, and even the kiddie was fun. Plus they have flats(didn't get to do them, though), and a couple decent water rides.

I liked SFKK, its just that if its not too busy, I couldn't stay there all dang day. Its a half day trip between Holiday World and PKI for beast buzz if I go next year.

Thing is, in the past T2 has been not-so-bad for me, and I didn't quite understand such harsh comments some had made. But for my ride this year, it was terrible. Painful. Not sure if the coaster itself changed & got worse in that time, or if it just depends on where you sit, on what train, atmospheric & astrological conditions, or what. :)

T2 is not a good ride nor are SLCs, it's that simple (with the exception of a few). Vekoma rides just do not age well, it is a fact of life.

I am also not quite sure where anyone can get off saying Thunder Run is better than Raven. Granted Thunder Run is a decent ride, but it is so uninteresting. For lack of a better word, Thunder Run is too symmetrical. It literally fits into a long box shaped section of property with little to no change in elevation. Overall, I just flat out get tired of making left turns.

Overall, I think the coasters at Kentucky Kingdom are all fun, but only rank as mediocre. Let me end my post with an analogy. If amusement parks were colors, KK would be a nice shade of off white (nice, but not too exciting) where as Cedar Point in comparison would be neon pink (hella exciting).

*I would like to note too that I am not trying to compare Cedar Point to KK, I am just using it as a reference for my analogy.

I had the same experience Raptor Pilot. I rode T2 several times on my first few visits and it didn't cause me a problem. The last two times I rode it, I hurt my neck and it gave me a bit of a headache.

For those of you that have been to Darien Lake;
is Mind Eraser at Darien Lake a better ride?
It looks quite simular. I visited Darien Lake this summer and chose not to ride it because of the long line, one train operation, and my experience with T2.

Roller Skater is fun and Greezed lightning is worth a couple rides. It seems that Lola and Stella are never running at the same time when I'm at the park, but I think I liked Stella a whole lot better, but have only been able to ride it once because they have always had Lola running while I was there.

CoasterMatt, Those are, apparently from other comments on this thread, you opinions, which I can respect. My opinions are different.

Thunder Run is one of my favorite Wood coasters. Granted, I've yet to hit Holiday World, but if someone likes it better than Raven, its all about personal taste.

I have been on T2, Thunderhawk, and Mind Eraser @ SFA. I liked them all, and would take an SLC ride any chance I got.

SFKK is a good park. Its not a great park, but has the potential to be.

I like the park and would go back again. I have been there twice and had fun each time. I like Greezed Lightnin and Thunder Run the most. Thunder Run has always run good when I was there and I think it's a gem. Watching the Dragsters is fun too, I wish I could have talked someone into going on them with me!

Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought that T2, Mind Eraser at DL and Thunderhawk (Serial Thriller) at GL were all the same cookie cutter...

I walked under Mind Eraser and inspected it closely. I couldn't tell any difference other than the color. Maybe I should have said that they look very similar if not identical.

Of course my post are my opinions, thats the point of a message board. Sometimes people on this site are way too hypocritical.

Well, the turns were better on TR for me, the 4th drop is just as good as the Fifth on Raven, and the sideways air on the third or second bunny(I can't remember which) is hella-fun. The last curve is one of the best I've been on. And, none of the turns were taken hard enough to where you couldn't pull yourself off the other person(+ in my book), a thing Raven Lacks.

I just had more fun on TR mostly though.

I would really like to see the other side of the park(the part over the bridge) look more like a Six Flags park. When you enter the park, you can tell that it is a Six Flags park. But as soon as you cross the bridge, it's like your in another park completly! Love Chang, Twisted Twins and Thunder Run. I just wish they would put alittle more money towards improvements and PAINT!

Also, how much more expensive would it be to move all those rides, especially Chang and T2 instead of just improving what they have. Also, because of height restrictions, couldn't they start a rollercoaster deeper in the ground? Just a thought.
