Kentucky Kingdom Plans
There's a green light for Kentucky Kingdom to re-open, as soon as the spring of next year. The State Fair Board has approved a new lease agreement. Investors still have to secure $25 million in private loans before the park can open. The investors have agreed to initially invest $45 million in the park, which has been closed since 2009. The Fair Board and the investors agreed to a 50-year lease after the state sought new proposals, after Holiday World and Splashin' Safari dropped its plan to reopen the park.
