Twisted Twins is presently closed and will not operate when Kentucky Kingdom reopens for the 2014 season. The park intends to use this ride for future expansion.
Lola and Stella made up the two unique rides one can experience on Twisted Twins at Kentucky Kingdom. Lola (pink) provided a tamer ride with more emphasis on zero-gravity hops, while Stella (teal) offered riders more of a twister ride with its full helix and plentiful instances of lateral forces through its sharp turns. The intertwined structure of these rides left passengers confused and in suspense of where their ride will take them. Twisted Twins is the industry's original dueling roller coaster.
