Group not asking for state funds for park - Article Photos 1/1

FILE - In a Friday, Aug. 17, 2012 file photo, a ride at the shuttered Kentucky Kingdom amusement park sits unused, in Louisville, Ky. A group of Louisville-based investors who want to reopen Kentucky Kingdom said Monday, Oct. 22, 2012 that they are not asking for any startup funding from the state to get the amusement park rides running again. The team, led by developer Ed Hart, said it plans to restore all but one of the park's existing rides and add four new rides, including a $15 million roller coaster, the first to be introduced at the park in more than a decade. The group also said it would double the size of the "Hurricane Bay" water park on the 60-acre grounds at the state fairgrounds. (AP Photo/Bruce Schreiner, File)
