Kentucky Kingdom opens Saturday, and this year’s big attraction is the new $8 million “Storm Chaser” steel roller coaster — the amusement park’s fifth coaster. Business First‘s Marty Finley survived a test ride yesterday, reporting: “While I’m not scared of roller coasters, I have never been an enthusiast and found myself clutching my safety harness extra tight during that 100-foot drop.”
Watch this point-of-view video (but maybe not on an empty stomach!):
- Adults: $44.95 general admission
- Children: $39.95 (less than 48 inches tall)
- Seniors: $39.95 (those 55 or older)
With those prices, a season pass at $59.95 is a steal.
