The ride is Greased Lightnin'. It has been confirmed several times in the past that all inspections and surveys show that the ride is in a condition beyond significant repair. It seems it would be cost prohibitive to invest in bringing the ride back when that money can be put towards a newer addition.

first they have to get someone to actually run it and manage it before rides start being taken apart. I'm not really getting my hopes up since I live in Louisville and we've been through this to many times just to have something fall through and the whole thing begins again. It breaks my heart every time I drive by there and look over and see all the abandoned rides and how far the deterioration has gone.

The article states that they are close to negotiating a lease, then it is up to Hart and company to come up with the financing. That is going to be the sticking point. Can they come up with 50 million to get the park open in 2014 and another 70 million over 30 years? I don't think so.

^And when Hart fails, the state and the fair board can say "well, we tried" with all sorts of mock sincerity, and have a casino take over the property. Which I'm sure was their plan from the very beginning.

Were you answering Elissa's question, or just some random question related to some other thread?

I'm going to go with SFKK. Seems like the state is ready to do something with the land, whether it's getting someone to reopen the park or razing it for a casino. Meanwhile, it doesn't seem like anything's going on with the Hard Rock site in terms of either reopening the park or selling/repurposing the land. Or at least I haven't heard anything lately.
