 Review of Kentucky Rumbler @ Beech Bend
0 Rating Posted by: shag9004 on 6/4/2008 9:38:00 PM
Date Ridden: Summer of 2006. Times Ridden: 3 in the very front, middle, and very back seats. OK, when you visit Beech Bend, this is the reason you are going if you an enthusiast. It has been a couple of years since I rode this and the layout is very difficult to remember. However, I do remember the superb laterals, the smooth ride, and above all else the comfortable seats. I even remember the smell of the wood since this thing was so new at the time we rode it. I also remember making the comment to my girlfriend that I hoped Beech Bend kept this beauty up as wood coasters sometimes do not age well if neglected. That being said, the critic who used the term "mini-Thunderhead" hit the nail on the head. The similarities are there however this coaster does have its own personality. It is easily one of the top 20 woodies I have ridden (out of around 50) and offers everything a good woodie should. There is not a huge amount of airtime but the laterals more than make up for and the re-ride capabilites are very high. You will not get abused or come off the coaster sore, you will only be laughing and running around the que to get back in line. We got in 3 rides on a day the park was virtually empty and I regret it to this day. We could have ridden this thing 10 times an hour and if I ever get back up to BB I vow to do so. As it is, the Rumbler scores a very solid 9 as a coaster which accomplishes exactly what it was designed to do: be fun!!!
