The Amusing Ads Archive - Vekoma And Kentucky Kingdom

This Vekoma advertisement from mid-1993 felt rather fitting for right now, considering it has quotes from Kentucky Kingdom's Ed Hart, who is once again in the park's spotlight. Mr. Hart was responsible for the development of the park into a major attraction in the 1990s.

And from this ad it would appear as though Vekoma helped a bunch with their convenient financing options. Instead of haggling over the interest rate on a car loan, could you imagine trying to get the best deal on a Boomerang coaster, Ferris Wheel, and a Waikiki Wave? Now that would be fun!

The ad also mentions that the park was planning on working with Vekoma again to debut a new SLC coaster - which we all know happened 1995 when T2 debuted. Maybe Mr. Hart will return to Vekoma for his redevelopment of the park, part 2?
