Always fun. Always fried foods. It is what it is...fair food. The smells, the rides and the people watching. Never lets me down!

We visited KY Kingdom / Hurricane Bay on Wednesday August 6th. We arrived shortly after the park opened and easily found a really close parking spot. We (adults) used McDonalds supplied KY Kingdom $10 discount coupons. The kids wanted to go straight for the water park. Lines were short and staff was nice and attentive. Not a fault of the... More

The Expo Center seems to be one of those places I visit a lot through out the year for various venues. The State Fair is something I look forward to each year. Several sections of the Center have seen renovations the last few years, and they have done an excellent job in keeping most of it modern. It is always... More

I grew up going to this park and was thrilled when it reopened. It is definitely not what it used to be. I remember walking through the park before and around every corner was something fun and exciting. It was so alive. Now, its boring and feels like you walk forever before you find something fun to do. The park... More

We had free passes and were still disappointed with the value of the park. What could have been an enjoyable roller coaster was pure torture due to the lap bar being forced so tightly that it bruised both legs. On the way to the park, you see signs advertising $1 soft drinks - at the park, they are $3 or... More

Ed Hart and his local team of park gurus have done it again. Kentucky Kingdom and its waterpark has been brought back to life again and is more beautiful than ever - and their rebuilding is just beginning! Great rides, especially Thunder Run wooden coaster. Plenty of space in the park and plenty of shade for the non-sun lovers (me... More

We are season pass holders for Kings Island so we had a good baseline for comparison for Kentucky Kingdom. We found the amusement park to be geared more towards our kids as there were a lot of rides for them. The park only had 2 large coasters to ride and they were "just ok." Thunder Run only had one car... More

This amusement park used to be affiliated with the Six Flags corporation. I did not realize it is independently owed until after I had purchased tickets online (my bad). I was a little apprehensive since I hadn't been to the park in about 10 years and it wasn't listed on TripAdvisor. When we arrived at the park at opening, we... More
