Some Gravitykraft rides absolutely nail it with their trains. This one, unfortunately, not so much. However, it shouldn't affect the experience of what will be a very solid junior woodie and an excellent fit for the park.

Top 5 Wood: El Toro, Voyage, Lightning Rod, Boulder Dash, Phoenix

That is probably the best NL rendering they have done since Fireball.
What are these for?

Kentucky Flyer has an airplane aesthetic. Another word for airplane is 'jet.' Therefore, Kentucky Flyer is a jet coaster.
Here's the thing yeah we started off friends but this is not a Kelly Clarkson song and not how it ends.

Hey I mean as far as cute little rides go they could have chose something really really lame if they wanted to and they didn't.

Glad they went with white like the animations show instead of unpainted steel.

I believe its been there since Chang was removed and the waterpark was removed? My firsts visit to the park in 2016 it was there so maube some one else can confirm how long its been there. I am curious as with the placement of KF, if they will be adding some smaller flats in that area. Still think they could add some small flats in SC area as well.

You could fit a small kiddy flat there, maybe a Zamperla Demolition Derby or SBF 2 Loop Spinning Coaster at most

So i believe it was in a KoasterKids video from a construction tour they received, the berm was stated to have been there since Chang's removal. If I remember right, the footers for the ride where just filled over with dirt, thus creating the berm we see now.

Yeah I agree this was a necessary addition, but still this isn’t what comes to mind when you think of a 30 year anniversary— with two park closures and reopenings at that, showing Ed’s amazing amount of dedication to his rightful Kingdom.

They spent more time designing the zero car than the roller coaster. It's not inherently a bad thing, it's just a fact.
