Twisted Twins did not reopen when Kentucky Kingdom did for the 2014 season. After sitting idle for two seasons the park announced Storm Chaser, a new roller coaster that will be built on this site using the steel support structure from the Twisted Twins.

Lola and Stella made up two unique rides one could 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 would take them. Twisted Twins was the industry's original "dueling roller coaster".
