i really dont see the park opening this year. i know there is alot of work to be done before it could even open up. talking to some friends from tech service they said there is still tons of rides needing to get parts and they are still apart in the tech shops. plus there is so much cleaning that needs to be done. i look to see it opening for the 2011 season which i hope to be part of full time. ed hart was a good choice he has saved the park once and he will do it again. i know he has big plans for the water park.

The park isn't really a factor during the Kentucky State Fair. The Kentucky Fair and Expo Center has North American Midway Rides at the fair every year. Those rides are set up right next to Kentucky Kingdom each year during the fair near Kentucky Kingdom main entrance, or on the side of the park. There really is no point of the park being closed during the fair don't you think while you have other rides operating beside it and you can be making some money. No one really goes to Kentucky Kingdom because we all have the whole summer to go their and we all wouldn't wont to pay money to ride a ride we can ride for free not during the fair. Most of us all go to the North American Midway to ride rides that we only can ride once a year.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

^ but we could enter Kentucky Kingdom for free to get some good shots of the rides. I wish I could do that but the Fair is open once school starts :( .

How I remember how much rides cost in the Fair's Thrillway:

Fireball (inward frisbee): 5 tickets
Spin-Out: 4 tickets
Inverter: 3 tickets
Power Surge: 3 tickets
Zero Gravity (round-up): 2 tickets
Gravitron: 2 or 3 tickets

Theres more rides, but thats all I remember.

but you still have to pay to ride! It isn't worth paying for a ride that you ride all summer!

a ride ticket at the fair is about 1.50 per ride ticket

Greezed Lightin = 6 tickets

= 9 dollers per ride!

^I would imagine that for some people, paying $9 to ride their favorite ride once a year is a better value than paying for a full day at SFKK...

^ Not really... I'm in the group that only tends to ride the raggedy fair rides instead of Kentucky Kingdom's rides! I STAYED at Kentucky Kingdom during the rest of the year!

This is great news!

It's been known for years that Ed Hart has wanted to buy the park back, so I'm glad he finally got the opportunity to (and that he took it).

Yay for Six Flags, but does this mean Magic Mountain might lose Jay Thomas and Niel Thurman in another employee rotation program?

^Presumably, the park will not continue to operate under the Six Flags name or franchise, much like Darien Lake or Elitch Gardens. Thus, employees won't be cycled out, at least not to there.

Hopefully this might mean some long overdue capital for the park now that it's free of corporate (after working through the obvious expenses of getting it up and operating, and rebuilding its image as, well, open.)
