LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The future of a shuttered Kentucky amusement park has been on a roller coaster ride for three seasons, and now the uncertainty has taken a new twist as the state seeks offers to revive the attraction.
Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear said it's time to decide whether it's a viable option to reopen Kentucky Kingdom in Louisville.
The park has been closed since 2009, when Six Flags pulled out after filing for bankruptcy.
Beshear said after years of seeking a new operator, it's time "to fish or cut bait."
At the governor's direction, the state fair board decided to seek offers from any groups wanting to operate the park.
That came as a surprise to a group of investors with a $40 million plan to reopen the park in 2014.
