Golden Ticket Awards
- Cyclone Saucers named Top 3 Best New Water Ride
In a ceremony held
recently, the 19th annual Golden Ticket Awards were announced. The Golden
Ticket Awards were presented by Amusement Today. Amusement Today is the
world's leading amusement park/water park business journal. The Golden
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

Beech Bend Park was very
excited when the Sea Dragon was purchased from Michael Jackson's Neverland
Ranch. While Michael's life was controversial at times, his contribution
to the music world is legendary. With Michael's passing, we have been
overwhelmed with calls and visits from fans wanting to ride the Sea Dragon from
Neverland. It's a great ride!
