I've suspected all along this would be mainly a waterpark. In fact, if they wanted to, they could make one of the biggest waterparks in the area, as long as they keep all the land and don't give some back to the fair.

Before we all put the cart before the horse we have to remember that there is info that we are not privy to. We do not know what was in the paperwork that the Koch family. I suspect there are probably mandates for rides be part of Bluegrass Boardwalk. Otherwise the park name doesn't make sense in my opinion (boardwalk = rides). Also, how would it benefit the new owners to withhold this information from the public?

As usual, my analysis is free of charge! Original enough to not steal someone else's quote as a signature
Well I may have a chance to get Thunder Run sometime in the near future. I certainly thought that the wAterpark potion of the park was really good. I honestly think that T2 should be scrapped, it was terrible.
Basically, this all comes down to how much it's going to cost to get the rides up and running after 5 years of non use. Especially for something like Greezed Lightnin', it would take a large chunk of change, not to mention the Koch's experience is all with wooden coasters. Tackling something built by a company that doesn't even exist anymore would be a huge hurdle, among the many challenges of getting this park up and running again. Like Larry said, there is probably alot that we don't know and we will have to wait and see what happens in the next little while.
