hey so you know i was just reminded that the 11th is a sunday and the 10th is a saturday but its saturday we also figured out that if a thousand people paid to park at six dollars the fair board would make six thousand dollars and then this would show them and the government how much money they could be loosing

Kentucky Kingdom was the site of a small demonstration this weekend. Protesters, including former employees and park supporters, came out to take issue with the park's closure.

The Six Flags company decided to close the facility in February as it is in bankruptcy. Hundreds of seasonal jobs were lost when Kentucky Kingdom closed.

"Kentucky's unemployment is 10 percent. I think the time to act is now. The further we want the more these rides set idle, the worst it's going to be for a new owner to come in. We need to act now," protester Tim Childers said. Unemployment in the Metro area is more than 12 percent.

Last year, Six Flags posted a net loss of $194 million.

The Kentucky Fair Board has been looking for a new company to operate the park.

I was in town over the weekend for an adjacent function, and managed to snap a few pics. I didn't know about the demonstration until after the fact; I'd assumed that small crowd was people who wandered away from the Kentucky Flea Market at the Expo Center.

The place is on Steel Plant Road, it might be there for refurbishment. It's nowhere near enough track to be the entire ride, so maybe some of it got damaged during disassembly.

This appears to be the place: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Wilder,+KY+41076&sll=39.059716,-84.492373&sspn=0.01203,0.021157&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Wilder,+Campbell,+Kentucky&ll=39.064665,-84.491794&spn=0.012029,0.021157&t=h&z=16
