News & Rumors


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













icon_STOP2016 - Storm Chaser - Under Construction - (10/7/15) A few new construction pictures of Storm Chaser at Kentucky Kingdom have been sent in to Screamscape this week, as more of the red track has now been fixed to the structure.
    (9/29/15) A great new construction report on Storm Chaser, shot from the air by All-American Thrills has been posted to YouTube. Check it out below.

    (9/23/15) Crews are making progress over at Kentucky Kingdom on Storm Chaser as the red rails are going up on the lift hill rapidly, as seen in photos taken over the last 2 days.
    (9/10/15) CoasterTalkNoBS has posted a construction update for Storm Chaser at Kentucky Kingdom this week. Meanwhile another reader sent in an interesting report from the Mile High Falls boat ride where it appeared as if one of the large plexiglass panels on the splashdown bridge had just broken, followed by park officials and first aid arriving quickly on scene. From the look of the photos, one of the panels appears to have shattered, throwing fragments all over the area, which the employees with dust pans were trying to sweep up.
    (8/25/15) AllAmericanThrills has posted a new construction video from Kentucky Kingdom showing off the progress on Storm Chaser.

    (7/23/15) A great aerial construction update of Storm Chaser has been posted by AllAmericanThrills as shot by their drone-cam.

    (7/21/15) As expected, Kentucky Kingdom announced their new 2016 coaster that will take the place of Twisted Twins. Also as Screamscape has been telling you for weeks now, Rocky Mountain Construction is behind this transformation, but it's a little different that what I was expecting.
    For starters, this new coaster will be called Storm Chaser, and the racing/dueling nature of the old coaster will be more more. In fact, from the look of things the Stella side is being completely removed and the new Storm Chaser will instead follow the old Lola side's layout. In true RMC style however, Lola's old layout will be made taller and much more intense with a higher lift hill, a really crazy fun looking Barrel Roll Drop dive inversion in place of the first drop, taken at 78, followed by many over banked turns, plus a corkscrew element in the second half of the layout.
    Just like the Six Flags conversion jobs done by RMC, Storm Chaser will use the same iBox style track from RMC, and not their Topper Track. However, unlike the Six Flags projects... while the iBox track will apparently be set on wood, the steel support system of Twisted Twins will be reused, making this "hybrid" creation far more steel than wood in the end.  Take a look at the concept art and video animation to see what this wild ride will look like in action.

    (7/8/15) All American Thrills dropped by Kentucky Kingdom with a camera drone and took some aerial pictures of Twisted Twins to share in their latest update.
    (7/6/15) Four new pictures (see thumbnails) showing off the work in progress taking place on Twisted Twins were sent in over the weekend.
    (6/29/15) According to the latest photos (see below) of Twisted Twins at Kentucky Kingdom, it appears that crews have actually begun to dismantle a significant portion of the ride's structure now while just removing the track from the structure in other sections.
    (6/22/15) A reader sent in a great photo from Kentucky Kingdom taken on Sunday showing off the Twisted Twins coaster and you can now see that all of the tracks leading from the station to the lift hills, as well as the brake run tracks leading into the station on both sides have been completely removed. Meanwhile another reader sent in a picture from a few days before where they caught a few workers standing on the tracks up near the top of the ride.
    (6/16/15) A couple of Screamscape reader dropped by Kentucky Kingdom this week and noticed that a crane has now been set up on the south side of Twisted Twins. They also believe they spotted what looked like a stack of wood. They also reported that the overgrown vegetation that was once everywhere is being ripped out, and one source claims that the track leading to the lift hill from the old Lola side has been ripped out completely already, while viewed from the top of Mile High Falls.
    (6/15/15) According to Kentucky Kingdom, the park is planning to make a special announcement sometime between late June and early July. We suspect this may be about whatever they have planned for the 2016 season.
   That said, they did tell us that the RV and trucks spotted in the closed section of the park near the old Twisted Twins coaster actually belong to the sea lion trainers who live on property 24/7 to sea to the care of the park’s “adopted sea lions” for the summer.
    (6/11/15) From the sound of things, work is starting on Twisted Twins at Kentucky Kingdom. According to the report sent in to Screamscape a reader was in the park and spotted several work trucks and an RV parked on the pathway to the closed coaster. While riding Mile High Falls they spotted three people standing in front of the station, pointing at various parts of the coaster while holding what appeared to be blueprints. Things are about to get very exciting for Kentucky Kingdom it seems.
    (6/8/15) If your local to the area, you may want to take some pictures of the former Twisted Twins / Twisted Sisters coaster at Kentucky Kingdom because things may start to change very quickly. From the sound of things the plan will see the entire coaster's layout change and evolve, and RMC might just take some inspiration from what they did with Twisted Colossus and link both sides of the layout into one super-long track layout with two lift hills. Stay tuned!
    (6/3/15) An interesting new rumor has been making the rounds, at first quietly from those with access to inner circle knowledge and now it is starting to leak out to more hungry ears with mouths eager to share. This involves the park's plans for the former Twister Sisters dueling wooden coasters and if this rumor is true, I'm being told that the park may be handing the ride over to Rocky Mountain Construction for a fairly dramatic overhaul.
    I'm just not 100% sure if this is for 2016, or if this is planned for 2017... but if this is for next season, I'm sure we'll see construction begin on it within the next month or so, because unlike other RMC transformations, there is no need to worry about the public getting their last rides in, as the ride has sat closed for years now and is more than ready for a major overhaul whenever they are ready to jump on it. We'll just have to wait and see.
