Our family loves amusement parks! When we were invited to go to Kentucky Kingdom in Louisville, Kentucky after the VEX Worlds Robotics Competition I jumped at the chance to go. These kids had worked hard competing and it was time to wind down and have some well deserved fun! Kentucky Kingdom did not disappoint, the only thing I wish is that it was warmer and we could experience Hurricane Bay because it looked awesome!
I personally love roller coasters and couldn't wait to try out T3 - Terror to the Third Power! It was awesome with five inversions! I love the feeling of hanging from the tracks. This roller coaster definitely ranked up in the top 10 for me!
Another roller coaster that is the newest addition to Kentucky Kingdom is Kentucky Flyer! We loved it! I always appreciate a good wooden roller coaster.
I liked this roller coaster because it is good for the roller coaster enthusiast and also the newer roller coaster rider. Not too scary but just enough thrills.
Here is a short video on it.
Here you can see Lightning Run!
The park was only open for the participants at VEX Robotics Worlds and it was cool seeing the logo projected.
Here are the kids enjoying Prof. John's Flying Machines.
Breakdance was lots of fun with spinning and whirling.
I enjoyed this one!
There is also King Louie's Playland with lots of fun attractions for the little ones.
Super cute Jump Around Frogs ride.
Who doesn't love a big swing? I love that adults can ride this too if children are a little worried.
The Giant Wheel Ferris Wheel is huge!
Ready for some swinging in the air, try out the Skycatcher. Many of the kids went on it and loved it. I thought it looked really cool at night!
These two didn't leave the ground but demonstrated the ride for me.
There is also a 5D Cinema. It runs every 15 minutes.
Here you can see the pathway to the movie theater that you enter through the gift shop.
They also have a Sea Lion Splash show. Unfortunately it wasn't happening when we were there but it looks really cool!
One of the large gift shops!
In the gift shop is a Kentucky Show.
What an awesome amusement park!
Next time we will get to experience Hurricane Bay! You can learn more about Hurricane Bay here:
