After months of speculation, Kentucky Kingdom has finally posted their 2014 plans. In addition, they have also given us a hint as to what to expect for the following seasons as well. Here is the 2014 lineup according to

Lightning Run - Lightning will strike at the Kingdom in 2014! This new ten-story steel coaster starts off with a pulse-pounding, 100-foot, 80-degree drop! That’s almost straight to the ground!
(Editors Note: It appears to be a Chance Morgan Hyper GT-X model)

Fear Fall - Brave the unexpected as you tower 129 feet over the Kingdom. What a great view…if you can keep your eyes open. At the top, you’ll pause for a breath-catching moment before dropping back to earth at more than 45 miles per hour.
(Editor's Note: From the picture it seems to be a Larson model)

Professor John's Flying Machines - This entertaining ride, sure to become a family favorite, will amaze both riders and spectators. The Professor’s latest invention takes passengers airborne and allows them to test their flying skills.
(Editor's Note: Flying Eagles)

5D CINEMA - MOVIES YOU RIDE - It’s like being cast in a movie without ever having to leave your seat! You’re the star of this exhilarating 5D ride, a state-of-the-art experience you’ll want to enjoy over and over again. (Keep your eyes on our website for news of the movie to be shown at the 5D Cinema in 2014.)

Bumper Cars - Crash! Bump! Look out! Just try to avoid getting hit as you maneuver your way around our new bumper car pavilion. Ready! Set! Go!

Hurricane Bay - Doubles in size in 2014 with the addition of 9 new attractions including Family Wave Lagoon, Adventure River, Plummet Summit (family raft slide), Kids Cove, Speed Slide Complex consisting of Deep Water Dive (121 ft slide being heralded as America's tallest) & Wave Runner (66 ft triple bump slide), Wikiwiki Wai Slide Complex consisting of Wailele Run (covered tube slide), Waikiki Wipeout (bowl slide), and Kilauea (slide with tornado elements).
