LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky Kingdom has unveiled its newest roller coaster, The Kentucky Flyer.

The wooden roller coaster features a 52-foot drop and hairpin turns.

Riders only have to be 40 inches tall, which allows younger children to experience the ride.

The new ride debuts when the park opens for weekends on April 28.

Kentucky Flyer is part of Kentucky Kingdom's 30th anniversary celebration.
