(9 ) Lightning Run at @kentuckykingdom ! |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| I can not understand for the life of me why we haven’t seen more of these built? This little hyper-esque ride is a perfect fit for Kentucky Kingdom and actually beats out Storm Chaser for me! That’s not a knock on SC, it’s just that this coaster is INCREDIBLE! With a lot of room, expect an ejector filled drop leading into a CRAZY sustained ejector hill. The spaghetti bowl section has some surprising Gs and a bunch of ejector pops through, some off axis. The wave turn even had some airtime going into it late in the day. Lightning Run never let’s up however. A crazy off axis hill leads into a series of low to the ground turns with impressive positives and lats before a barrage of violent airtime leading to the brakes! |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| What coaster ranks in your top ten that you did not expect to do so??

Our amazing technicians are still hard at work (at least 6ft. apart ) making sure we’re ready to go when we get the “all clear!” Which coaster are you riding first when we kick off the 2020 season? . . . #rollercoaster #rockymountainconstruction #ridewithace #amusementpark #summervibes #bestsummerever #kentuckykingdom #socialdistancing

#16 Storm Chaser - @kentuckykingdom . . . I’ve never been a huge fan of how Storm Chaser looks but I haven’t riden yet so I’m basing on people opinions and many people say that it has very strong ejector airtime. In my opinion the layout looks pretty short and it seems like it loses much speed at the end (double up and helix before brakes ). This seems very similar to Untamed at Walibi Holland however Untamed looks much better in my opinion. . . 📸: rcdb.com . . . #stormchaser #stormchaserkentuckykingdom #kentuckykingdom #rmc #rockymountainconstruction #rmcmedia #iboxtrack #rollercoaster #coaster #themepark #coasterforce

(11 ) Storm Chaser at @kentuckykingdom ! |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| This is my favorite I-box installation by RMC! This ride, despite a small footprint, packs a serious punch! The drop is super fun, but it sets up for a brilliant middle half! The first hill is brutally strong sustained ejector; one of THE very best hills on the planet. After an overbank come two rapid fire, lateral filled ejector moments, before another (shown above ) ejector hill. I really wish that Storm Chaser kept it up because this would be an easy top 10 pick for me. I’m personally not a fan of the abrupt airtime of the final portion which is anything but the graceful, sustained ejector of the first half. Still, all the positives combine to make an incredible coaster, that stars as the headline attraction for a little park with a great collection. |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| What parks have great coaster collections but poor atmosphere/appearance?

If you look carefully...you can see #KentuckyKingdom #downtownlouisville and the former #papajohnsstadium ....what ARE they calling it now? South Louisville is not that different from South San Francisco, more industrial/natural and just 5 min from airport, 20-30 minutes to the water or Downtown #SouthendProud

Had an absolute BLAST at Kentucky Kingdom’s Winter Walkthrough! It was exciting to see the inner workings of the park as well as get amazing photo opportunities. We were so close to Lightning Run you could touch the track! The staff at the event were SO nice and it was a true highlight to be able to talk with them as they gave the tour like friends hanging out at the park. Awesome job, @kentuckykingdom ❤️ Can’t wait to come back next year! ~Steph • #emotionalrollercoasters #kentuckykingdom #hurricanebay #rollercoasters #behindthescenesphotography #rollercoasterfan #coasterenthusiasts #themeparkfans #lightningrun #chancerides #coasterenthusiast #amusementparkfun #themeparks #louisvillekentucky #rollercoasterphotography #amusementparkphotography #themeparkphotography #kinglouiewinterwalkthrough #ridephoto #thrillride #adrenalinejunkie #thrillseekers

Who needs a Zero car when car 1 has the front end of Dodge Viper. . Heres car 1 of a Lightning Run train and it's nice big wheels for #wheelassemblywednesday . . I remember coming across some info regarding steering axle trains, I believe it was said by Alan Schilke, where steering axle trains need 6 points of contact with the rail per wheel assembly like these Chance Hyper GT-X trains have. 6 wheels per assembly. . Although the track, and even the basic shape of the train somewhat resembles the Arrow/Morgan/Vekoma track and trains these vehicles handle like a dream by comparison. Sure they aren't B&M or RMC smooth but their ability to steer along the course combined with the excellent track profiling make for a smooth and exciting airtime filled ride. . I think the most interesting thing about this trains wheel assembly is how the guide and road wheels are connected to the bottom of the plate that secures the road wheels to the train. I can't tell if they are rigidly attached or articulated at this point but its pretty cool. Other manufacturers generally have a solid assembly connecting all 3 sets of wheels. . Lighting Run is fantastic. I'll have more about this incredible experience in another post. . How about you share your thoughts on it instead in the comments below? . Be sure to staple that like button and follow if you haven't already done so. Sure means alot to me 😁 . #lighningrun #rollercoasters #kentuckykingdom #coasterenthusiast #coasterenthusiasts #chancerides #hypergtx #coastersofinstagram #rollercoaster #themepark #amusementpark #thrillride #midwest #louisville #nerdshot #coasterphotography #coasterpics
