Kentucky Kingdom extending season pass 'early bird' price
Officials say the extension gives anyone affected by the current ticket scam extra time to buy a valid season pass at that price.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky Kingdom is extending the current price of season passes - as officials try to bust a season ticket scam.
The amusement park says thieves stole 11 credit card numbers in the past week, and used them to buy 640 season passes, worth $38,000.
The passes are being re-sold at a much lower price.
The park has decided to extend its $59.95 early bird season pass offer to Tuesday, June 13.
They say that gives anyone affected by this scheme extra time to buy a valid season pass at that price.
After June 13, the price goes up to $99.95.
To avoid being a victim, Kentucky Kingdom recommends you buy tickets at Kroger, on its website, or at the park.
