Just one day after plans fell through for Bluegrass Boardwalk to take over and open Kentucky Kingdom, two other national amusement park companies have expressed interest in reopening the park. Harold Workman, state fair board president, said that he was contacted by those two unnamed parties showing interest in the park.
The Koch family was not comfortable with parts of the deal, particularly the state ownership and regulation of the park, causing them to withdraw from the deal.
The top priority of the fair board is the reopening of Kentucky Kingdom.
