The second day of my trip consisted of a first time park for me, Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom. I had done a good job telling myself that I wish I hadn’t done this park before I got there. I was tired and in pain, but I had already bought my ticket. I got up around 9 am am on Wednesday morning, packed up camp and headed to take a shower. After I was dressed I went to McDonalds for breakfast, and then headed out to Louisville. The sky was overcast and I was hoping that I wouldn’t get rained out of my second day.
The drive was about 2 hours and I arrived at the gate of the park around 11:30, 30 minutes after opening. The parking lot is confusing, and this took up an extra 10 minutes just to find the right lot to be in and the front of the park.
First impressions are lasting, and mine of Kentucky Kingdom were not a good one. It was in a run down looking area of the city. I can see how this is the Midway for a fair because that’s the feeling I got whilst I was there. I got out of my Xterra and went to the front gate. It looked as if it was going to be busy as the line for the turnstiles was long. I then realized I had forgotten my camera, so I went back. When I got back to the gate I got in with no wait and headed to Greezed Lightnin’, going the long way around to view the park.
