I liked that the crowds were much smaller than expected for that holiday. Weather was perfect! We are in our 30's with two children ages 7 & 12.
Overall I would rated it a 6 out of 10.
It reminded me of a large, over-priced fair. Wasn't very clean, landscaping not well kept..needs paint in many areas.
The wave pool was WAY to strong. I've been to two of those at prior parks, and this one was just toooo rough.
The prices for items were just laughable. On top of price to get in..$6 to park.. $14 for a Locker...$13 for a refillable drink..some rides were even extra.
I'm glad my kids enjoyed it, but we will never go again.
My family and I have been to Six Flags several times this June and July and the place is clean and so are the bathrooms. So I don't know what these negative people are talking about. Yes, I am a local but I have been to Holiday World, Kings Island and we go to Disney World every year. I have seen people walking around with a broom and dustpan and when we are in the waterpark there are always women in the bathroom cleaning. Most of the staff are young but they are friendly. I have 2 young children and they have them give high fives when they exit a ride. We let them play some of the games and even when they don't win they still let them have a prize. Yes, the food and drinks are high but they are high at every park! Holiday World offers free drinks but the price of the drinks are in your cost of admission. We got the $13 refill cup. That is high but you get free refills all day so we bought 1 and my husband, me and my 2 kids drank out of it. Then if you bring it back you get 99 cent refills. I think the waterpark is the best part. They have different water areas for all different ages. And to the person with the comment of Kentucky Kingdom filing bankruptcy. Its not just KY Kingdom its all the Six Flags theme parks. And Six Flags is not the only business that has filed during the recession. If you live close by a Six Flags the season pass is the best deal because you can get in free at any Six Flags. And Six Flags KY Kingdom has a deal where you pay $29.95 and get a pass for six visits. I say that is a pretty good deal. And do like we do. Sometimes we eat in the park and sometimes we bring food and go out to the parking lot and eat then go back in. Also, take a water bottle and you can get all the free refills of water you want if you just go get the water out of the water fountains.
I was very dissapointed in Kentucky Kingdom this visit, I have been to this park around 3 to 4 times in the past 4 years and I would choose Holiday World over Kentucky Kingdom any day! The ride attendants were very rude on most of the rides and sarcastically racist towards whites it seemed. They would not let you leave your bag or pics on the side when on the Blizzard Penguin ride, it cost $6.00 to park, $13.00 for a refill drink bottle, $7.00 for 1 slice of pizza, and were out of ice for drinks at the refill station near the waterpark. So very disgusted with the overall visit! I don't recommend anyone visiting ih, and also the MileHigh Falls and Twisted sisters rollercoaster were down due to them expanding, but fail to post this on there website! No wonder they are filing bankruptcy, if I treated people the way their staff does and the cost of everything in our economy today I would fill bankruptcy too!
This is a good amusement park but is fairly small when compared to other six flags parks. plus no new roller coaster have been added since 2003 and they also took out twisted twins. Nevertheless Chang, Thunder Run, and Greezed lightning were amazing. I've never been in the water park section but its been seeing new rides steadily since 2004. One thing Six Flags should do is try to incorporate some DC comics rides such as Batman, Superman, and Mr Freeze, Which I know they tried with superman: Tower of Power.Overall though you'd have a good time
MY SON AND I are season pass holders and we love it...it is a great deal...plus you receive all kinds of coupons to bring guests along at discounted prices or for free.....we always spend half a day riding rides and half a day at the water park....we try and pick weekdays for visits because then it is not that crowded...but the Saturday that we did go on..the ride waits were not bad at all....and with the weekdays there is hardly a wait at all! We have had great times each and every time we go....staff are young but super nice.....I took my son on his b-day....and they even let us use coupons on some things that they could have refused to take them on..so....we will always buy the season pass....of course food and water is expensive...name me one park where it is not that way? You just expect it will be that way and plan for it...we always buy the refillable bottles there...and bring it back everytime.....papa johns there also has a refillable bottle....we get it as well...and keep water in it to drink and pour on the younger kids when they get hot...and refills are almost nothing....the park is also a manageable size...so....can't wait to make our first trip this year.....
We just got back from Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom on 7-26-08 and it was a huge mistake. For my family of 4 it cost a lot more money than it would have to go to Holiday World. Kentucky KingDoom is highly overrated and they should be ashamed to charge as much as they do just for water. Not only are food and drinks ridiculously priced, but they charge for things that should be included in general admission (as if not costly enough), for example go-karts. I drove 3 hours to get there (gas is not cheap), paid $6 to park, $40 x 4 for admission, and spent countless dollars on drinks (it's true, hell is hot and the people are thirsty...at least we were). The grounds were not well kept, and the water rides smelled of urine. The staff looked as bad as they treated the guests and I found the atmosphere very stale and unhappy. It felt like being in the Twilight Zone or something. From a personal standpoint Holiday World is more family oriented, friendly and clean. Plus, there will be no need to take out a second mortgage on your home to visit. I'm completely disgusted and will not be going back, not even for free!
More than half if not all of the staff is barlely old enough for a job and move slower than a turtle climbilng everst! It is dirtiy and disgusting! Grafitti on walls and TONS of gum and disgust on the rails in line. It is rusty and overrated!
Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom is a great place to go because you can enjoy there thrilling,family,kiddy and much more other rides.They even have a water park and it is huge!!! So i am going to tell you about there awesome atmosphere, fantastic food, and all there rides.The cost isnt that bad either you can buy a season pass for $40.00 or spend 20.00 everyday for one person just to get in. I recommend that you buy a season pass.
lets start with the awesome atmosphere. The atmosphere at kentucky kingdom is great it is really clean there if you look on the ground there is nothing but the bare ground. And they also have fans on the poles and gates that spray water on you so you wont be too how that you will have to leave.
YUM!YUM!YUM! There verity of foods is delicious you can choose from pizza to hamburger anything you wan i bet they have there.They have food and drink stands every 2 min walks.They even have mini restraunts.
YEAHHHHHH!!! FASTERRRRRR!!! AHHHHHHHH!!! Is all you will here when you get on there rides. All there rides are safe and fun.They have over 20 rides and over 30 rollcoster and over 10 water rides to choose from.To recommend I would say breakdance,mousetrap,greeze lightning,thunder run,twisted twins,rainbow,chang,T2,and the farriss wheel are the best rides i think but that is just my opinion.
