History[edit | edit source]
On September 14, 2018 Kentucky Kingdom released a short teaser called "What's in the Wind?", which was followed a week later by a second teaser which revealed the "Kentucky Flyer" name and logo. On the 30th, the roller coaster was officially announced.
In October 2018, the ride's fate was put into question when the Kentucky State Fair Board rejected Kentucky Kingdom's use of 1 acre of land for the ride. However, the State Fair Board later reversed their decision on October 17, 2018.
On November 13, 2018, the front car of the train was revealed at IAAPA 2018 in Florida. It was also confirmed that the ride was planned to open on April 28, 2019.
