Kentucky Kingdom wants to build a new family friendly wooden roller coaster. However, it needs one more acre and the Kentucky State Fair Board's approval.
Kentucky Kingdom CEO and President Ed Hart said he wants love and not war when it comes to building the new roller coaster. However, he doesn't understand where the resistance is coming from.
Hart said he wants to use the one acre promised to him to expand the park, but the State Fair Board won't agree to the transfer. In addition, Hart said the fair board also violates its yearly $1 million leasing agreement by charging Kentucky Kingdom customers $10 to park. Kentucky Kingdom filed a lawsuit against the board three months ago.
