LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Kentucky Kingdom is introducing Storm Chaser, the park’s fifth roller coaster – and the second new one in the last two years.

The roller coaster was designed by Rocky Mountain Construction and will run on the company’s signature iBox track, which Kentucky Kingdom officials promise will be “smooth as glass, fast and intense.” The track will rest on wooden supports, but will be reinforced with a steel structure.

The new coaster will be a twistier than a traditional wooden coaster. Due to the nature of the track made by RMC, Kentucky Kingdom says Storm Chaser will feature some thrilling elements that aren’t usually seen in wooden coasters.
