^Not that big of a suprise in my opinion....I was having a tough time believeing they had enough time to get the park back to shape with the off-season starting, they needed to start sometime in July or so to get the park looking good and having time to get money. I think it will reopen, but I knew it wasn't going to be 2011.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB Fox 41) -- Fox 41 News has learned that Kentucky Kingdom is not going to reopen next year.

Developer Ed Hart wants to double the size of the water park and add new rides, but needs $50 million to pay for it. He said in a news release, "We share in the disappointment that the park will not be ready to open next spring. For our part, we are proud to be the operator of choice and will certainly do our best to bring Kentucky Kingdom back as soon as is reasonably possible."

The Kentucky State Fair Board initially planned to use a $50 million bond issue, but officials are having a tough time coming up with that money.

So the Fair Board expects it will have to ask for funding from the state legislature, which doesn't meet until January. The developer says he will do his best to bring Kentucky Kingdom back as soon as is reasonably possible.


Not surprising indeed. Oh Well, now they have much more time to think about all this.

^Hmm...maybe there's still a chance for Twisted Twins to reopen. Sounds promising overall though.

Ooh, a picture of an X-coaster! That'd be pretty cool if Kentucky Kingdom got one (I'm sure they won't), but don't those coasters have too many problems?
