Some significant news has broken about the possibility of Bluegrass Boardwalk having its opening delayed to Summer 2014.
From this news story it sounds like the decision is not final yet, but delays in financial related issues, including tax incentives, are making the 2013 opening increasingly difficult. The final lease will not be signed until those items are in place, and they're taking much longer than expected.
Regarding the park's coaster selection when it does reopen, it sounds like there won't be much offered. The news report that due to certain coaster's age, reliability, and cost prohibitive repairs they will not be brought back online - including the Twisted Twins (1998 CCI dueling wooden coasters) and T2 (Vekoma Suspended Looping Coaster). The park's classic Schwarzkopf shuttle loop, Greezed Lightnin', was not mentioned specifically.
According to the plan when the park opens only select rides will be included, such as the park's river rafting ride, several flats and kiddie rides and the carousel. In future years other rides will be brought back, like the Ferris wheel and Thunder Run wooden coaster. All waterpark attractions will be reopened.
So, that leaves me wondering - will that be enough? Will the focus on the waterpark be enough to overshadow a small selection of rides? I expected many rides not to reopen, but thought a larger balance between water and dry rides would be achieved. Developers do point out that this is not set in stone, so available rides could change quite a bit once the lease is signed and full inspections are done.
