THRILL RIDES

Our thrill ride lineup at Beech Bend is truly top notch.  New for 2015 is Air Race and the majestic Bluegrass Breeze Swings.  These new thrills along with the addition of Zero G and Vortex over the last two summers has really taken the thrills to a whole new level!  We still have plenty of family friendly rides, but if thrills are your thing, this is the place to be!

 

The Kentucky Rumbler was named the 5th best new ride in 2006 and is the most twisted roller coaster in a seven-state region.  Kentucky Rumbler is currently ranked  in the Top 20 wooden roller coasters worldwide!  (Rankings by Amusement Today's Golden Ticket Awards) Click on the image to the left for stats, pictures, and video!

The Sea Dragon, purchased from Michael Jackson's NEVERLAND RANCH in November of 2008, has been a hit since its inaugural year.  Riders sit in 10 seats facing each other and swing back and forth, reaching an angle of 90 degrees at the highest point of 60 feet.  Riders can get the sense of weightlessness, especially on the end seats during the exciting ride.  (Click on the image to the left to view a video of the Sea Dragon!)

Vortex is a one-of-a-kind thrill ride at Beech Bend.  In fact, it is one of the most unique rides in the region!  This radical swinging pendulum ride soars riders 60 feet into the air reaching a maximum swing angle of 240 degrees!  Riders will sit facing each other to maximize the interactive experience, and at the maximum height of the swing, riders will be suspended upside down!

The Wild Mouse has often been mistaken by guests as a children's ride...it most surely is not!  Climb up a 60 foot chain hill and go through a series of steep drops, only to encounter turns that will leave your mouse car spinning ferociously.
