This suspended looping coaster returns to operation at Kentucky Kingdom in 2015 with a new name – T3 – and a new train with redesigned restraints.
T3 is the first Vekoma Suspended Looping Coaster to open in North America. This suspended coaster has seven-car trains that hang from an overhead steel track. Riders ascend a lift to a height of 102-feet to being an thrilling ride through five upside down inversions.
Unfortunately, T2 Terror To The Second Power suffered a reputation of not delivering a smooth, comfortable ride. Instead, it coined the phrase "hang and bang" because riders were frequently beaten up by the roller coasters' over-the-shoulder restraints. Kentucky Kingdom is hoping the new train with redesigned restraints will eliminate the bad rap.
Vekoma 662-meter prototype SLC model
Fact: Opened with three ten car trains that were later shortened to seven cars. The roller coaster however was only designed for two-train operation.
2015 – T2 Terror To The Second Power reopens and is renamed. A new seven-car train is purchased from KumbaK with a new restraint design.
2014 – Kentucky Kingdom reopens, but T2 Terror To The Second Power will not. The future of this roller coaster is uncertain.
2010-2014 – T2 is standing-but-not-operating (SBNO) after Six Flags closes the park.
Train has seven cars with one row each, seating two abreast per row.
Height requirement: Riders must be at least 52 inches tall
