POV Lightning Run – Kentucky Kingdom’s new roller coaster!

I got to ride this coaster a week before the park actually opened back up to the public. So I was first of many to get to ride it before the general public ever set foot in the park since my company picnic was held here in May, 2014. I normally am a little biased when it comes to roller coasters since I’ve ridden nearly all the coasters at Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH numerous times. Coasters like Top Thrill Dragster and Millennium Force make coasters at my local parks feel like a county fair ride. So I’ll admit, I was a bit pessimistic in thinking before I got on the ride. Once on the ride I thought the restraints were a little uncomfortable but not awful, I’ve definitely been in worse. The ride started and climbed the first hill at a pretty good pace, I was impressed. First drop, wow, it was steep and fast! More than I was truly expecting for a ride from this park! It went on at a rapid speed pulling some hard G-forces as well as some negative G’s! Turns were sharp and steep! Don’t let it’s size and short ride time fool you, this coaster is intense! Overall I was very impressed and even surprised due to my pessimistic thoughts before getting on the ride and waiting in the very long line. 2 thumbs up to Kentucky Kingdom for actually building a fun and exciting coaster, they finally did something right after all these years! If you love roller coasters, this one is worth your time! Thanks for watching!

PS: This was shot with my gopro hero 3 black edition, no mounts, just holding it (thought I might loose it a time or two). And excuse my lovely fiance’s screaming throughout the video haha!
