THRILL RIDES

Our thrill ride lineup at Beech Bend is truly top notch.  The addition of Zero G and Vortex the last two summers has really taken the thrills to a whole new level!  We still have plenty of family friendly rides, but if thrills are your thing, this is the place to be!

 

The Kentucky Rumbler was named the 5th best new ride in 2006 and is the most twisted roller coaster in a seven-state region.  Click on the image to the left for stats, pictures, and video!

Rotate at high speeds both clockwise and counter-clockwise on the thrilling Moby Dick.  The 24-passenger platform offers excitement to all its riders, and it is one of the more unique rides in the park.  (Click on the image to the left to view an on-ride video of the Moby Dick!)

POWER SURGE

The Power Surge is considered by some as the most thrilling ride at Beech Bend Park.  Six arms extend from a rotating tower.  Riders sit in four seats on each arm, with two seats back-to-back.  The ride then raises high in the air as riders are left freely to swing and rotate upside down and around.  (Click on the image to the left to view a ride video of the Power Surge!)

SEA DRAGON

The Sea Dragon, purchased from Michael Jackson's NEVERLAND RANCH in November of 2008, has been a hit since its inaugural year.  Riders sit in 10 seats facing each other and swing back and forth, reaching an angle of 90 degrees at the highest point of 60 feet.  Riders can get the sense of weightlessness, especially on the end seats during the exciting ride.  (Click on the image to the left to view a video of the Sea Dragon!)

Vortex is a one-of-a-kind thrill ride at Beech Bend.  In fact, it is one of the most unique rides in the region!  This radical swinging pendulum ride soars riders 60 feet into the air reaching a maximum swing angle of 240 degrees!  Riders will sit facing each other to maximize the interactive experience, and at the maximum height of the swing, riders will be suspended upside down!

The Wild Mouse has often been mistaken by guests as a children's ride...it most surely is not!  Climb up a 60 foot chain hill and go through a series of steep drops, only to encounter turns that will leave your mouse car spinning ferociously.

Height Requirements: 42" with adult or 48" to ride alone

 

 

 

Get ready to experience something never before seen at Beech Bend Park.  Introducing Zero-G, the tallest ride to ever strike Beech Bend!  Zero-G will pull its riders 140 feet in the air, a full 40 feet taller than even the mighty Kentucky Rumbler.  Then feel the sky drop around you, as you plummet downwards at speeds of 60 mph.  Riders will feel weightless, a true zero gravity experience.
