Reopening Kentucky Kingdom could cost more than expected

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - It looks like it will cost more than expected to breathe new life into the now empty Kentucky Kingdom.

According to developer Ed Hart's office, Hart is still getting together the financing to reopen the park which closed in 2009.

Hart remains confident Kentucky Kingdom will reopen in 2014.

The Kentucky Tourism Cabinet confirmed a hearing is scheduled Friday, March 29 in Frankfort to discuss the application for economic incentives.

Another progress report should be released in April or May.
