Golden Ticket Awards Announced-Beech Bend Park Receives High Marks

In a ceremony held recently, the 16th annual Golden Ticket Awards were announced.  The Golden Ticket Awards were presented by Amusement Today.  Amusement Today is the world's leading amusement park/water park business journal.  The Golden Ticket Awards have become the industry's most prestigious awards, equivalent to the "Oscar."  Beech Bend Park is very proud to be recognized as the "Fifth Friendliest Park in the World" for six out of the last eight years.  Beech Bend's Kentucky Rumbler was also ranked as the 20th Best Wooden Coaster in the world! "Hundreds of wooden coasters were considered for these awards. We knew we had a winner with the Kentucky Rumbler the very first time we rode it, but it is gratifying to know the rest of the world agrees," commented Dallas Jones, park president. The Kentucky Rumbler has ranked in the Top 25 every year since it was built in 2006. The Kentucky Rumbler was built by Great Coasters International, Inc. Go to the Rides and Attractions page for fun coaster facts.


Beech Bend Park was very excited when the Sea Dragon was purchased from Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch.  While Michael's life was controversial at times, his contribution to the music world is legendary.  With Michael's passing, we have been overwhelmed with calls and visits from fans wanting to ride the Sea Dragon from Neverland.  It's a great ride!
