Greezed Lightnin'


Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom

Please note, Greezed Lightnin' and Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom are presently closed.

Greezed Lightnin' is the only ride of its kind in the region. It propels riders from zero to 57 mph in less than six seconds through a 76-foot-tall loop, then goes up a 70-degree incline where it reverses directions and then travels backwards through the loop to end on a steep incline on the opposite end.
