sccard01 Posted June 11, 2013 Author Share Posted June 11, 2013 The week/day of the deadline I would expect the lease to be official. From the recent report last week the fairboard is still paying for security, water, etc. So if I was Ed, I would use the entire extension to preserve money for the reopening. That could explain why the lease was not official in April. None of that makes any sense. A new chapter for Kentucky Kingdom. (The article) http://coaster-net.com/news/2127-a-new-chapter-for-kentucky-kingdom/ So. What? While there is no one to blame for the condition of the park, the responsibility has been shared by former owners, Six Flags and the Kentucky State Fair Board, and arguably Ed Hart and the Koch family. How is it the Koch family at all to blame for the state of the park? And it sounds like the only thing coming out of Hart is this "Wow, the park is in rougher shape than I thought. It should be okay, but man is it rough. Look at all this work Im going to have to do. I hope to get the funding, but wow so much work needs to be done. Nothing good left. Park in bad shape. " So when he does walk away, everyone says, wow he tried but the park is in just so bad of shape. If anyone should be to blame, it's the Fair Board. According to them Six Flags had no claim to anything so what was left is theirs and they're the ones who've let it rot. Look at what I've found on Craigslist http://louisville.craigslist.org/ofc/3851216650.html The Weber Group was partners with Hart once before It's hard to hire people when you don't have money to pay them. If you didn't understand what I was saying the possible reason for the extension that was approved in late April could have been proposed to allow the fairboard to pay for the utilities, security, etc. That helps keep more money in the pocket of Ed Hart and the Development team until the lease is official. When the lease if official June 27, the development team will take over the payments for utilities, security, etc. So Your saying this project has $0 funding? I doubt it, and I put my money on it that Kentucky Kingdom will reopen May 24, 2014 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
