Just to put some structure around the regulatory scheme in Kentucky...
KRS 247.232 [PDF] defines amusement rides and attractions in a way that would seem to include Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom. This regulation provides for inspections by the state, I think annually. Then this regulation requires reporting of all serious injuries (requiring physician care) and deaths.
Thanks to Kathy Fackler for providing a link to her collection of the reports made in Kentucky in the past four years. None are from Six Flags. I'm rather surprised, and frankly a little skeptical, that only four events took place in that time frame.
