LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41) -- Ed Hart, the operator of the Kentucky Kingdom theme park from 1989 to 1997, will become the new operator.
The reason for the decision? Board members say Hart has a proven track record, and that he took over the park before during a difficult time and turned it around. Hart's supporters say they believe he can do it again. They also like that he's local.
Hart hopes to have Kentucky Kingdom open again by Memorial Day weekend of 2011.
