recently, the 19th annual Golden Ticket Awards were announced. The Golden
Ticket Awards were presented by Amusement Today. Amusement Today is the

Ticket Awards have become the industry's most prestigious awards, equivalent to
the "Oscar." Beech Bend Park and Splash Lagoon's "Cyclone
Saucers" received high marks in the "Best New Water Park Ride" category.
"Cyclone Saucers" tied for the No. 3 spot for the new water slide, the first of
its kind in North or South America. "Cyclone Saucers" is part of a new
four slide complex opened in 2016. Beech Bend's Kentucky Rumbler was also ranked as the
Best Wooden Coaster in the world! "Hundreds of wooden coasters were considered
for these awards. We knew we had a winner with the Kentucky Rumbler the very
first time we rode it, but it is gratifying to know the rest of the world
agrees," commented Dallas Jones, park president. The Kentucky Rumbler has ranked
in the Top 50 every year since it was built in 2006. The Kentucky Rumbler was
built by Great Coasters International, Inc. Go to the Rides and Attractions page for fun coaster
