Kentucky Kingdom is making considerable progress on their new-for-2016 Storm Chaser coaster. The Rocky Mountain Construction project is using the steel support structure of the former dueling Twisted Twins wooden coaster.
The crest of the coaster’s 100-foot-tall lift hill has been completed:
The element taking shape following the lift hill is the inverting “barrel roll downdrop.”
This inverted drop will be the first of Storm Chaser’s three inversions.
Thanks to Jason Slone for sharing these photos with us.
