Kentucky Kingdom - 7/11/2016
Today I made a solo trip to Kentucky Kingdom in Louisville, Kentucky. This was my first visit to this former Six Flags park. As an out-of-state guest I was able to get a discounted ticket and a wristband for free soft drinks.
I enjoyed most of the parks attractions including Tin Lizzies, The Giant Wheel, FearFall, and Angry Birds: The Ride, a 3D cinema attraction. Of course the main reason for visiting the park was their roller coasters. I was able to ride four of the five coasters; Thunder Run, Lightning Run, T3 and Storm Chaser. The standout coaster among these was Storm Chaser. This Rocky Mountain Construction coaster was the first time I experienced and coaster like this. It is a wooden coaster which has been transformed in a new steel track coaster with inversions and aggressive twists and turns. The future of hybrid coasters is here.

Tomorrow I move on to visit my next new park at Beech Bend Park in southern Kentucky.
