Kentucky Kingdom's Storm Chaser was built on the site where the dual-track Twisted Twins wooden coaster operated. Using the existing steel support structure, state-of-the-art Iron Horse Track was laid atop it, with designer Alan Schilke making changes to the track layout and adding new thrills. Gone is the dual-track, dueling design. Instead a single track standing 100-feet tall incorporates new elements, like America's first barrel roll drop, extreme "air-time" hills, a 140-degree stall, off-axis air-time hill, and trick track, double up. In total, there are three inverting elements. Based on Rocky Mountain Construction's reputation, Storm Chaser, is an outstanding addition to Kentucky Kingdom.
