Kentucky Kingdom closing!!

Thursday, February 4, 2010 7:02 PM

This came as a total surprise!

In an email announcement to season pass holders, Six Flags announced the following:

...It is however, with much regret that I inform you that despite multiple attempts to reach a new, fair and equitable lease agreement with the Kentucky State Fair Board, Six Flags has been unable to do so. As a result, Six Flags has rejected the current lease and will be closing Kentucky Kingdom, effective immediately. Please know that this action only affects the Kentucky Kingdom theme park - all nineteen other Six Flags parks will be open for business as usual in 2010, including nearby Six Flags St. Louis and Six Flags Great America in Chicago. (...)

The message is signed by Andrew J. Michaelree, President of Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom.

By way of verification, a more detailed message is posted to the web site at

I guess this explains why they had already announced the removal of Chang...!

Too late, Dave. Someone else already started a thread.

If you look at the timestamps, the two threads started within a minute of each other. I guess because I took the extra minute to check the web site and verify the email... :)

That's what you get for being thorough Dave. ;)
