Since it’s closure in 2010, there have been few attempts to reopen to Kentucky Kingdom. However, familiar faces look to possibly pump new life into the park. The Koch family, already in ownership of the successful Holiday World, have expressed interest in adding the Kentucky park to their portfolio.
The Indiana family, released this statement on Monday Jan. 16th, “When Kentucky Kingdom closed, the Kochs expressed interest in learning more about options for the park’s future. The process is still in the fact-finding stage, and no decisions have been made whether to further pursue the opportunity.”
The Kentucky State Fair Board is desperate to re-open the park, but with most of it’s major rollercoasters removed, it will take some time, and cash to revive it.
