Kentucky Kingdom: Nice to see a positive result.

With all these parks that shut down whether abandoned or turned into some other type of property, I am glad that KK got a new lease on life.

It saddens me, when a park closes, so it is nice to know that someone like Ed Hart comes back for the rescue. While I am sure he sold the park initially for the money, I am glad he came back to revive it.

It is these type of stories that don't happen much. Also a shout out to Merlin for bringing LegoLand Florida to the old Cypress Gardens.

It would be interesting to observe the progression over time of two alternate realities, side by side: one in which the Kochs turned the property into Bluegrass Boardwalk, and another where Hart resuscitates the park, and see who 'wins'.

I too am always saddened to see a park go away and pleased to see it come back. From all the things I've heard, they've had a good opening run, and Lightning Run is very well-liked. I hope this is successful for the long haul. It is a shame it doesn't happen more often.

Sadly, this is true.
