News & Rumors


(Formerly known as Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom)
Louisville, Kentucky



icon_STOPPark News - (6/6/18) Kentucky Kingdom has reopened their T3 coaster following the "bump" that took place over the weekend between two train, but for the time being it will only be allowed to run with one train.
    (6/4/18) Heads up for anyone planning a trip to Kentucky Kingdom. The local news reports that the park has closed their T3 coaster after a pair of trains "bumped" in the station over the weekend. The coaster will remain closed until the accident investigation is complete and any needed repairs are completed. As for the bump, no serious injuries were reported yet, though five riders did seek a medical evaluation at the park's health services before going back into the park, while only one requested to be taken to a hospital for further evaluation. Nothing more is known yet about this last rider other than the request to be taken off-site was done by their parents, so we can only assume it was a minor.
    (3/28/18) While not at Kentucky Kingdom itself, the local news reports that Kentucky Kingdom is finalizing a contract with Louisville Metro Parks to operate the new "Zipline Kingdom" opening this summer at Jefferson Memorial Forest, located about a 15-20 minute drive to the south of the theme park. It seems a former operator at the local opted not to renew their contract to run it, and Kentucky Kingdom offered to purchase the attraction. You can find out more about this new 3-hour attraction at the official website.
    (10/4/17) Kentucky Kingdom confirmed to guests at the Last Rides event that the park's Enterprise was leaving for good. No word on what might replace it, though he did suggest that the park's next coaster will be a Hyper style coaster and possibly open in 2019, just in time for the park's 30th Anniversary.


icon_STOP2018 - Scream Xtreme and More - (5/28/18) Some great pictures of the new Scream Extreme ride, now open at Kentucky Kingdom, were posted to Twitter by Coaster Crew this weekend. Scream Extreme sure looks like a worthy replacement of the park's old Enterprise ride.

    (11/4/17) Kentucky Kingdom has announced their plans for 2018 at last. New for 2018 will be a new high intensity flat ride called Scream Xtreme, which despite looking like a next-generation Huss Enterprise, this is actually a Zamperla Endeavour. (Check out the video below to see what it looks like in motion).
    That's not all either... the park will make improvements and retrack Thunder Run, two new movies are coming to the 5-D Cimema (Happy Family: The Ride and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island), and a new family sized flat ride called Rock 'n' Roller is also on the way. Plus look for more cabanas at the Big Surf wave pool.


???? - New Coaster - Rumor - (7/23/16) Ed Hart spoke to the attendees at an ACE event at the park late last month and without being too specific, he indicated that the park would likely add another new coaster in either 2018 or 2019. Fun note: other topics address included the possibility of building a tunnel under the road the runs through the park, and the fact that Ed Hart dislikes Dark Rides and has no intention of building one at the park.
