BoddaH1994 Posted May 7, 2014 Share Posted May 7, 2014 It's a well-known fact that talks of moving Coney Island Cincinnati originally sprung from the fact that Coney had been ravaged by floods throughout its history on the banks of the Ohio River. However, another factor the helped move the project forward so quickly was that Fess Parker, TV's "Daniel Boone" and "Davy Crockett" announced that he intended to build his own theme park near the intersection of I-71 and I-75 in Kentucky. The competition wouldn't have fared well for Coney Island. Check out this article from the Nevada Daily Mail that talks about Parker's plan to build his own Frontier World in Coney Island's back yard. http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1908&dat=19680920&id=GkUrAAAAIBAJ&sjid=ctQEAAAAIBAJ&pg=2328,1051949 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
