This past Sunday, Evan, Jeff, Joe, Chris and myself got the chance to head out to Beech Bend Park for the annual event know as Rumblefest. It really ended up being a great time. As usual, the Jones family extended exceptional hospitality and kindness toward every at the event with some perks of the event being a huge raffle of Kentucky Rumbler merchandise, an unbelievable down home Kentucky dinner, and over 4 hours of ERT on the Kentucky Rumbler. Thanks to everyone that made it out to the event and a special thanks to the Jones family for being so generous, and welcoming everyone as part of their family. Keep an eye on the site for photos of the event as well as photos of Evel Kinevel, which opens in less than a month.

With Six Flags St. Louis open, there have been some great photos popping up on fansites. It should be no surprise, then, that I report that all of the structure is standing and our crew is working hard on tracking and the mechanical systems.

We have bugged our guys on site for some up-close photos of what is going on, so I’ll post those as soon as we get them.

On another end of the project, trains are progressing nicely in our PA office, with many of the coaches nearing completion.

Meanwhile, I’m feeling better now that “coaster season” has begun. I’ve already visited King’s Island twice (I had never been before) to check out their collection. I couldn’t believe how massive Son of Beast is; photos don’t do it justice. I think there is more wood in that lift hill than any of our entire rides. I’m looking forward to visiting the other parks in the area.

Speaking of which, if you’re in the Bowling Green area Memorial Day weekend, be sure to join us for RumbleFest. It’s going to be a great time.
