Beech Bend Park

Beech Bend Park is home to drag racing, a campground, and Beech Bend Park. This small amusement park has been around 100 years, and although very few outside the area even know about it, the park has one of the best wooden rollercoasters around. While most of their rides are basic canival rides and two portable rollercoasters, as well as a blah dark ride and more antique cars that sound like they are going to explode, the Kentucky Rumbler is this monster wooden rollercoaster that they obviously spent a lot of money on. It opened in 2006. You can check it out on the video posted. My lap bar wasn't working correctly so told an operater when I got off, but he didn't seem too concerned. The park had limited food and gifts, small shows, but their carnival rides were brightly colored. It also had a few waterslides and mini golf. There is a small pond in the middle of the park that didn't have anything on it but ducks. One such duck had a nest of eggs under a tree in the midway where everyone could reach her. I thought it to be an odd place. That evening I stayed at the Drury Inn, which is highly recommended. This was originally going to be the turnaround point of my trip, but it turned out I was close enough to another location to go out just a little bit farther.
