Following Kings Island's debut season in 1972, the first major new attraction added for its second season in 1973 was Kenton's Cove Keelboat Canal, a long flume that featured a dual drop and hydro-jump.  It was one of the first rides in the country to utlize a turntable loading system.

Kenton's Cove Keelboat Canal was located in Rivertown and operated at Kings Island for 28 seasons, giving its last rides in 2000.  


Wow! that's one high water ride.

One of the BEST log-flume rides that I've ever been on. So, why did King's Island choose to get rid of this attraction? Surely it wasn't just to make room for "Tomb Raider", right? Because if THAT was the case, someone sure made the wrong decision there, huh?
