Turn it into a water park, you make cash.

Try to make it into a destination theme park, you lose cash.

Hopefully Hart isn't an idiot.

Sounds like doubling the size of the waterpark means that whole side of the highway will be nothing but waterpark attractions. That is a good thing. I am still scratching my head that the Kentucky Tourism board basically crapped on Hart on his original intent to open the park, went with Holiday World's consideration, got slapped in the face, and now they love Ed Hart.

Glad the park will open but that board needs to get their heads out of their butts. All they did IMO was prolong the opening. Now the existing rides and infrastructure have deteriorated even more.

My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.

Also, concerning the Fair Board, the sooner it is opened, the sooner it can make money.
