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 33 every year since it was built in 2006. The Kentucky Rumbler was

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!
