LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Kentucky Kingdom gave rides on the classic wooden roller coaster Thunder Run to members of the media on Thursday as they prepare for their re-opening in 2014.

Thunder Run first debuted in the summer on 1990 and a few years later, Amusement Business Magazine voted it the "most terrifying roller coaster" on a top 10 list.

It's a terrifying two-minute ride that takes you down a 74-foot drop and peaks at speeds of 53 mph.

The Park is scheduled to Open next May.
