The president of the Kentucky State Fair Board says negotiations with a prospective new operator of the Kentucky Kingdom amusement park are going well with the owners of Indiana’s Holiday World, and expects they will lead to an agreement.
Read more from WFPL/Louisville.
I salivate just imagining what the Kochs could do with a place like Kentucky Kingdom. This could be a very, very good thing. :)
It's definitely good for Kentucky Kingdom and Louisville. I just hope it's the right decision for Holiday World.
This is going to be interesting to watch. I've got to wonder, to some extent, if this may be driven somewhat by Holiday World reaching it's capacity to expand. I know water and sewage have been issues in the past.
Huh? They're putting in the world's biggest water coaster. They've put in their own water tower. I don't think they're reaching any limitations.
Yeah, that's one park that has all kinds of potential to expand. How much acreage do they have anyway? I know they're not even remotely landlocked yet.
They have lots more land. When they built The Voyage, Wil said that if the entire proporty was developed, The Voyage would be in the middle of the park.
I'm pretty sure Walt S was referring to issues of local infrastructure, not space, but even then, I disagree with him.
It'll be interesting to see the changes they put into the park.
