The operators of Bluegrass Boardwalk cleared a major hurdle Wednesday afternoon. The Kentucky Tourism Development board approved nearly $4 million in tax cuts for the group looking to replace Kentucky Kingdom.

Looking good. I think that was the biggest hurdle they had to overcome. :-)

Agreed. Now I'm more concerned about the inaugural summer under the Kochs. With the already common knowledge that an opening season in 2014 will be sans many rides and all the major coasters, the park might be lucky to see half its (previously reasonable) predicted attendance. The potential is there for fiscal disaster.

OTOH they have 2 years to gear up a marketing campaign--and I assume it will mention free Pepsi.

And sun tan lotion.

and how they're a true family park, with no cussin' or hootin'. ;)

I think it was for 2013 that it was mentioned there would be limited rides and no coasters. We don't know what a 2014 opening will bring. Maybe its a good thing, for us as guests, that it's taking longer than expected to clear some hurdles

That was some short lived optimism. I just contributed it for news.

Beat you by a few minutes, Jason:

I might have made it if I didn't bother contributing to news first, and then also posting it in the wrong topic. :-)

Friday, June 15, 2012 6:43 PM

Ahh. I hit the forum first, then contributed. :)

Sorry to interrupt you pissing contest here, but both of you are totally awesome.

Friday, June 15, 2012 8:14 PM

Oooh, Travis is in a passive aggressive mood!

So you're saying they're both awesome pissers?

Saturday, June 16, 2012 12:06 AM

Totally awesome, Mike. Totally. :D

Saturday, June 16, 2012 1:06 AM

But I was awesome a few minutes before Jason, right?

Saturday, June 16, 2012 2:06 AM

Premature pissilation. I think there's a pill that can help with those symptoms.

Saturday, June 16, 2012 2:46 AM

What has happened to CoasterBuzz? It just got more awesome.

Saturday, June 16, 2012 9:50 AM

Awesome is better than pissy.

Speed isn't everything Gonch. Or, that's what I keep telling myself anyway. ;-)
