Bluegrass Boardwalk

The Chief Executive of a company that once hoped to reopen Kentucky Kingdom amusement park in Jefferson County  says the project was scrapped because officials didn't think they would have the freedom under a lease to make decisions independently and quickly.  Bluegrass Boardwalk announced Friday that it was going to withdraw from the project due to government regulations and stipulations.

The state of Kentucky has approved incentives up to $3.9 million over ten years for the company that wants to reopen the former Kentucky Kingdom amusement park in Louisville.
