If Six Flags owned "Chang", I'd doubt they would request permission from the Kentucky State Fair to remove the ride. They sure as heck wouldn't promise a major waterpark expansion in return! Even if the Six Flags lease agreement was similar to the City of Montreal's for La Ronde (where annual park improvements are a precept in the lease agreement), the termination of the lease wouldn't allow them to remove "Chang". They would have needed the express permission of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. If the Kentucky State Fair truly pursues this matter, this will be an interesting case. Six Flags could lose big, and they no longer have the bankruptcy court to protect them.

...just imagining lawyers from Kentucky...

"If it pleases the court, I'd like to use a metaforce. See, six flags is like the man who buys up your tobackey farm with the promise that he'll take care of it and make it profitable while paying youse to have the privelige, but then they plow it under and have relations with yer daughter without permission before she's of legal age in the great commonwealth (14). t'aint right, yer honors."

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

^... umm... close!

Something tells me that Chang will be back in Kentucky Kingdom, I don't know why but I just got that feeling in the bottom of my feet (stand-up-coaster joke!... no?...hmm :?r ). Chang was probably the best reason why most people would come to Kentucky Kingdom, otherwise they'll say KK has a great waterpark and some good rides.

I visited Kentucky Kingdom on their closing day last year. I thought it was a decent enough park, but obviously missing its star attraction without Chang. Judging by how the footers were tore up they would be starting from scratch if the ride were to return.

^^^I guess SF though that tearing up the footers would be a deterrent... ;)

I don't think Chang will be back. Just my opinion.

Yeah yeah, as soon as I get my passport renewed I come across the river and visit ya...

(and of course, after getting all the necessary shots)

In al seriousness, though, this whole situation stinks more than the Reds Stadium on free Skyline night (see, I can make fun of both sides of the river). Six Flags should attempt some sort of settlement if you ask me. Try and clean up the PR nightmare as quickly (and cheaply) as possible.
