Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom in 2008
A one price admission theme and water park, Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom is situated in Louisville in Kentucky sprawling over a good 58 acres of land. The major attractions of the park are its roller coasters, seven in number; family rides, Looney Tunes Movie Town and live entertainment in various forms. There are also several amusement rides catering especially to the enjoyment of kids.
The Six Flags Splash Water Kingdom is a water park that comes free within the same premises. It is loads of fun, since there are water coasters, a slow river, tube rides, a tornado tube slide, an exciting water tree house which is also interactive and the biggest of all, a 750,000 gallon wave pool. For entrance you need only the Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom coupons and Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Tickets that are available at the park at reasonable prices and with special Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Discounts which you can easily avail if you land up at the park at the time they are being offered. The park is in fact the ninth of the many Six Flags parks to use Six Flags in its name. The park is a wonder,simply as it has the world’s longest steel stand-up roller coaster which in itself is amazing.
Among the 58 acres of land that the Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom is occupying, 38 acres are leased from the Fair Board of the Kentucky State. However,the kingdom had officially opened on the twenty third of May in 1987 leasing out 10 acres of land from the Kentucky Exposition Center Property. It was built as an extension of the Kentucky State’s fair but unfortunately did not last even the entire season. The owners had to file a bankruptcy and were forced to auction off the rides. Initially, there was a roller coaster ride in the park called the Starchaser which also had to be sold. It was one of the original attractions of the park in those times.
The park however had to remain closed throughout the entire 1989 season when it was bought by Ed Hart and a number of other investors with Hart having the maximum involvement. The Kingdom was reopened in 1990 and ran successfully for that entire season. Starchaser had been sold off but was still running inside the premise of the Kingdom. Hart however bought back the roller coaster and added new rides like the Tin lizzies, the Enterprise, the Vampire and the popular Whirling Dervish. These are still in working condition to this date and continue to provide amusement to many. The good news is that Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Tickets for these rides have also become cheaper with time and so you can easily enjoy the feel of these rides.
The Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Ticket includes admission to the water as well as amusement park while the Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Coupons are required for every single ride. However, Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Discounts are always available for kids and during special occasions and now are even available online.
