Construction Update: Storm Chaser Roller Coaster at Kentucky Kingdom
Kentucky Kingdom strikes again with another new roller coaster! If you haven’t already heard, the park is officially retiring their classic Twisted Twins wooden roller coaster which has been closed since 2007. Twisted Twins (previously Twisted Sisters) will be transformed into an amazing single-lift, single-track steel-on-wood-on-steel hybrid coaster!
“Storm Chaser“ will be the addition of the parks fifth and newest coaster. This will be the second new coaster to be constructed at Kentucky Kingdom in a period of only two years! The ride is being built by Rocky Mountain Construction. RMC recently released these awesome photos of the construction progress!
The coaster will join Thunder Run, a classic wooden coaster ranked among the top “woodies” in the world; the newly revamped and reopened suspended looping coaster T3, Roller Skater, and of course, Lightning Run which is a one-of-a-kind hyper coaster introduced in 2014 rated among the top 25 steel coasters in the world by Amusement Today.
