Louisville, Kentucky, May 24, 2017: On Friday, May 26, both Kentucky Kingdom and Hurricane Bay will begin daily operations.

Over the Memorial Day weekend (May 27-29), Kentucky Kingdom will honor members of the military and their families with the special offer of a $15.00 admission ticket, which may be purchased at the park’s front gates upon presentation of a valid military I.D. Up to six tickets may be purchased per I.D. and the holder of the I.D. must be present.

Joining Kentucky Kingdom’s line-up of more than 70 rides and attractions this year is a new thrill ride, Eye of the Storm. This giant loop is more than seven stories tall and seats 24 riders, zipping them through a full 360-degree loop, both forward and backward! For the little ones, the park has added Loony Balloony and Rowdy Racers, which mom and dad can ride right along with their children.

In addition to these new attractions, Kentucky Kingdom is opening a Craft Beer Garden, which will feature some of the region’s finest craft beers. Guests will also enjoy the additional new benches, lounge chairs, and shade structures that have been installed throughout the park, particularly in the water park.

Kentucky Kingdom season passes are on sale now for only $59.95. This early bird price expires soon. Passes may be purchased online at kentuckykingdom.com or at participating Kroger stores.
